Re: how noisy are they?

I have both the Black and the Red. The Black is the noisiest drive Ive ever had, apart from maybe those old humming Samsungs. The Black vibrates strongly, and is also noisy when active (especially writing). The Red is much quieter, but still makes the typical hard drive noises when it is active. Wh...

Re: Fractal Define R4 Full Elastic Suspension Project

Here's some poorly shot photos of the new job.

Re: Fractal Define R4 Full Elastic Suspension Project

It looks like scaffolding on a construction site by frenzied aliens. :lol: Still, it looks like it should work very well. There are so many different ways to do this, so as long as you're happy... My only concern would be if/when you want to change or add or remove a drive. Is it relatively easy to...

Fractal Define R4 Full Elastic Suspension Project

Hi :) This week I added full elastic suspension of three 3.5" drives in my Define R4. Since doing it, I've realised I could've done a better job. I would like to refine it, and any advice for that would be appreciated. Here are the photos: http://i1218.photobucket.com/albums/dd410/zyg0tic/20140710_2...

Re: Quietest faster large HDD right now? 3TB or 4TB?

The past few WD Blue and Blacks I've had have been noisy, mostly vibration which leads to resonance, or the 2TB Black actually made the floor vibrate. Greens and Reds are both very quiet. Seagate's Desktop.15 (and therefore the Seagate NAS) is quiet as far as idle noise, but accessing noise tends t...

Re: Antec 1200 - 11x Suspended HDD Project

I have an Antec 1200 and afaik it can only receive intake airflow by the HDD drive cages. So im interested to know why that isnt an issue. If you are suspending the drives, making sure they are receiving cooling is important imo. I havent suspended drives in the 1200 so no experience there sorry. Lo...
