WD Raptor noise help.. Tags: Hard Drives Wd Raptor Storage Last response: January 11, 2013 6:03 PM in Storage Share Vectorous January 11, 2013 5:48:06 PM Hi there, Just wondering if there is any way to stop the WD Raptor from making so much noise when reading and writting, the actuator arm I believe. The noise isn't much of an issue, it just gets a little annoying after a while.. Thanks in advanced!

Your best bet is to figure out some way to dampen the noise, rubber washers, foam tray, something like that to absorb the sound before it gets to your case. Vectorous January 11, 2013 5:55:31 PM Ah okay, thank you for your help. I just bought a new Fractal Define R4 in white, hopefully that'll help dampen the sound too. Can't find your answer ? Ask !

Here's an old post about using rubber bands. I think it's still good advice. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/191751-32-thick-rubbe... Can't find your answer ? Ask !
