Console Noise when switched off, normal?

Hey all,

Superb experiences so far, so quiet. Just one thing though on the noise side... I get that the PSU fan is on all the time with 'Instant On' - this is fine and you can't actually hear it so much.

However, now and again, my Xbox makes a fast 'ticking' noise - is this normal? It lasts for a few minutes before stopping. Then a bit later it starts again - kind of like maybe a CPU in a computer when it is doing something. I guess the Xbox could just be doing something while in power saving mode, but just wanted to check this was normal.

Recorded a little video of it (put it up loud) you can hear the hum of the PSU fan and then the ticking of the Xbox. Does anyone else's do this? As I said, only happens for some of the time.

Thanks!

Yes it's normal. Mine does it and so do others as this is not the first thread on the subject.

The ticking is the console accessing the hard drive so it's nothing to worry about
