I was reading that updating the firmware could help, so I checked my firmware.
The version was a bit old (v3.2.7b0526T), so I updated it to a newer one (v4.3.3b1432).
The rattling of the HDD's continues, the system fan is now more active too.
So instead of less noise, there is more noise now.
I stopped all of my apps, no change (the ones I can stop).
I cannot stop QTS SSL-certificate, that's a bit strange.
Because I don't use an external login.

In my case the "evil" process that caused constant HDD writes was the "rsyslogd" which is the syslog server which is activated per defaut on a new system.
- You find it here: Control Panel / Applications / Syslog Server
· you do not need it, the system event protocol will stay alive

Thanks for this. In addition see this thread:

Disabling in qts was not all for me. I had to kill the process at all.
