What can I do for a noisy hard drive? It's been driving me nuts.
I have a Coolmaster HAF 912 case with a Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB hard drive.
Any time it reads/writes it's really loud and has been since I bought it about 6 months ago.
I don't think it's on its last legs, just it has always been noisy :-(
I just got the Cooler Master HAF912 and I can confirm you that the hard drive itself isn't the problem. I don't have the same WD model, but mine was just fine in my Antec Nine Hundred, but in the HAF912, it's noisy as there isn't much to insulate the vibrations of the HD from the case itself. It's installed in the bottom section as I removed the upper one. I'll check it this weekend to find a way to make it shut up
