I am not sure what kind of case you are using, but most HDD tray's would allow you to put a thin rubber strip (found at a local home improvement store) between the HDD and the Metal on the tray. This should bring the noise down.

You can try enabling/disabling APM on the drive. CrystalDiskInfo and some other utilites should allow you to do it.
