Shuttle SS40G hard drive quieting trick

For those people who own, or are interested in purchasing a Shuttle SS40G SFF PC, you may be interested in this description of a trick to quiet the hard drive. The author started with a Seagate Barracuda IV drive and then used credit card material in place of metal for the brackets to eliminate the metal-to-metal connection. Perhaps not as easy or clean as a decoupled hard drive, but useful for the SFF computers where space is always at a premium.
