Hey guys, I'm looking for a 1TB hard disk drive that's very quick. I'm not talking Velociraptor quick, but a really fast 7200 RPM disk. I've heard the WD Black is the fastest 7200 RPM disk for the buck, but I've also heard that it's loud. Is there a way to reduce the noise on it, or should I look for another model?
I'd go with the WD Black, I've dealt with several of these drives and they would be my choice for main use if I didn't have my SSD's. Honestly unless you have a super silent rig right next to your ear I doubt you will even notice the HD noise over fans and other things in your system.
This PC is supposed to be as quiet as possible.
A H105 has some quiet fans, and the case fans are to be replaced with even quieter fans.
I heard that someone sells like these rubber stoppers on HDD screws to reduce sound.
Every HDD makes noise. This is a FACT This noise is amplified because your HDD is attached to the metal of PC Case. One easiest or quickest way to reduce the noise is to pack the corners touching the PC Case with rubber strap Or you can add noise dampening foam/material inside the PC Case to reduce the noise.
