my computer burned 2 hdd

hello Mr
in the beginning my desktop computer specification is
mother board H55
CPU core i3
internal dvd\rw
external dvd\rw
monitor LED LG 19"
ordinary power supply 400 watt
HDD 1 Terabyte western digital
i were installing a program on my PC when suddenly the screen is jammed i heard a clicking sound from my HDD so i restarted my pc so the pc took along time to work so i restarted it & i checked the hdd from dos by HDD regenerater that showed about 600 bad sector & fixed then i installed the windows & programs without any problem
after a week i checked the hdd again for any future problems with hdd regenerater from dos & it showed no problem in the hdd then i stated up my computer so it took along time to launch window & show icons so i checked it again with hdd which showed bad sectors in beginning of test
so i bought a new HDD from same type 1 Terabyte western digital & i took my PC to an expert to check the new HDD & install windows so he said your PC is working very well
after 2 days when i were installing a program the new HDD made a clicking like sound & i immediately turned off my PC & checked my hdd from dos with hdd that showed a bad sectors in the beginning of the check
before a week i changed the the cable of hhd with dvd rw so hdd is worked but dvdrw is burned immediately
so where is the problems in hdd or power supply or motherboard
so friens sayed it may apower supply problem and other said it may be a motherboard problem in its voltrage regulator which in result cause damageing off hdd
these photo showin voltage readings from bios an hwcp monitor
when i talked to gigabyte company they adviced me to update bios but.and i have the last bios updateand there is no need to update

My first guess would be a faulty power supply. If you have access to a multi-tester, you should test this first.

It's possible if your PSU has been spiking. Usually it's the coils and capacitors which blow if there's been a power surge, as these are the components that first 'condition' the arriving electricity - in most cases there's visible evidence if harm has happened...

Most often, yes. However you do need to look at both sides of the board.

If you have went through 2 hard drives I would recommend checking the mounting to make sure the hard drive is not in a twisting or binding when mounted. Cooling is not normally a problem for hard drives but they do need some air flow. Your location indicates to me you have some hot days.
