It's normal. Many computer components can generate high frequency noise under high load, mostly from power circuits, but fans are usually loud enough to cover them up. The GTX 780 in my desktop does this but I didn't notice it until I installed a liquid cooling system. If you're interested, this has some details of the components that can cause this kind of ...

I always recommend putting the HDD in the best shock mount and the SSD in the least best shock mount. So leave the HDD in the HDD slot. Unless you know for certain that you will have substantial time where transfers above 1.5 Gbps will happen, then there's no speed to be gained by placing an SSD on a port that negotiates to 3.0 Gbps. The Time you will ...

Are you using it wireless or plugged in? If you are wireless, I'll bet they're low on charge. If you look where the cord connects, it's likely blinking or solid red (which means you need to charge them). As for the adapter, you don't need to keep un-plugging to reset them.

Some drives have the sudden motion sensor (SMS) built-in. On my 2011 15" Macbook Pro the Toshiba drive has it built-in. I can confirm this because when I simulate a 'drop' I can hear the drive heads park. When I disable SMS through Trim Enabler and do the drop, there is no clicking. My Toshiba sits in the opti-bay.

To the answer above. I don't think it has anything to do with the glue in the case of ipad mini/air. Reason is because the LCD screen itself isn't fused to the glass panel. If you look at ifixit.com, it clearly shows that it isn't fused. Therefore glue isn't used in ipad mini nor the ipad air. However, it may be the case with the iphones since the LCD is ...

As a former Mac Genius, I can tell you it's impossible to buy the feet separately as a replacement. You will have to get the bottom "plate" replaced. If it's under warranty, awesome, if not, it's less than $20 to get.
