Reliable fast HDD?
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?
Seagate also makes good drives. Check out this one:

Performance is one thing, but this PC is gunna be right next to this monitor on my desk and I dont wanna hear it buzzing o-o
You could add some noise cancelling foams on to your case, that would help reduce the hard drive's noise.
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.
