I really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really ... ("really" x9999...) ... really hope you're right about that.

I'll just have to keep getting new harddrives from them until one is working.

Well as one who fixes computers for a living and sees roughly 100-150 computers a month in and out of my shop....I'd say....the clicking is a definate bad drive....BUT...if they were both on the same cable...change the cable next time...just to be on the safe side if you know what I mean. The cable could short it out. And so could the power molex.

I've tried another sata cable, as I said before.
But I've used the same power molex both times... (If power molex means the power cable)

Problem gone after new harddrive (I thought), I installed windows (with RAID), after a month, I formatted my computer (got rid of RAID), then installed windows again.
And now, the lovely ticking is back.
I have to get rid of this problem.
