Thinkpad T460 SSD Noise

2017-02-16, 8:06 AM

Hi Everyone

      I have bought an Lenovo Thinkpad T460 in November 2016 with following configuration:

RAM - 8 GB

Intel Core i7 660U Processor

256 GB SSD, Serial ATA3 OPAL2.0 ‐ Capable


This is a configured laptop from intel i5 to i7 with all other config remaining same.

The issue is I can hear a hissing sound everytime I access the SSD. I mean while opening a file,opening a new tab in chrome or while downloading anything to SSD. My query is why the noise is coming as it's an SSD and has no moving parts. My thinkpad is on warranty, should I replace it ??


Thanks in advance
