ElcomeSoft Posted December 3, 2011 Share Posted December 3, 2011 Well, I like a quiet case and despite my Western Digital Caviar Green hard drives being some of the quietest, if not the quietest of the modern 3.5" HDD's they are transmitting a lot of vibration through the Carbide 500R's drive mounting system. Being a member of a one of the biggest silent computer forums for quite a long time, I previously used an elastic suspension for this hard drives in my old case to great effect. I remembered that I had removed the uppermost HDD cage from the case as I did not require it and thought that I'd use two old and dead hard drives and see what results I came up with. Below are my pictures. Please bear in mind that the bottom HDD has only been secured by one pair of loops of wool as a temporary measure to ascertain whether two hard drives were suspendable. Also these hard drives are DEAD and I do not intend to use wool in the final build. Finally, I use a camera phone for all of my photos and I am not a photographer. Seems like if you're good, you could fix up 3 HDD's in suspension if you're good. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
