Asus Sabertooth P67 (don't know exact model #). As far I can tell the only HD related utility I have installed is that Intel Rapid Storage Technology though I have never once used it. When I had the drive it was just plugged into a Sata port, and was not set up in a RAID or anything like that.

As my Video I have 2 x STBD3000100's in a Ready Nas Duo V2. I am unsure what the OS would be. I am using Raid 1.
The only thing I have tried is checking I'm using the lastest firmware.
Both HDD's make the same sound when plugged into my PC via Sata or a USB adaptor I have.
Turning off APM is not an option in my NAS.
My main concern is HDD failure. Plus I'm getting twice the chirping with 2 of them..

I can confirm that disabling APM using CrystalDiskInfo has resolved the chirping issue with my drive.
As for what board I'm using, it's an ASUS P8P67 which is identical to the one you posted however mine is just P8P67 and not P8P67-M
