I've looked on the site seems your drive is a Barracuda 7200.11
I know the one in my external enclosure is 7200.12.
Looking on the Seagate site it appears yours has the latest update so that's not the issue. How long have you had the drive?

Right now I'm running a full erase in hopes that it will just die and give me an error code..

I'm not sure how long the warranty is on internal drives. Is it longer than 3 years? I know it was only 2 years on mine being external. They should really replace the drive regardless of what result comes back from Seatools.
When mine was clicking Seatools was stating no errors even after taking ages to complete just a short test.
You may want to wait and see if anyone else has some other advice. I personally think if the drive is clicking that bad and overheating then Seagate must replace it.

Well as you say your data is already cloned so anything is worth a try at the moment!

I'm sure they will. Just making sure I got all my bells and whistles together before calling them. 5 year warranties on these things.

Thought about doing this to it.. but it would probably void my warranty.

5 years? Wow that's pretty good!

I had to crack open my enclosure which voided my warranty but as I only had 1 month left on it I thought "what the hell". Glad I did it otherwise I'm sure my drive would be dead by now!
