also, why is the blue ranked higher in the spcr charts?

would a 3 platter green (750) be quieter then a 2 platter blue (640)?

(couldn't find the density, another topic suggested it was 3*333mb or 3*250)

i actually don't like what he did with it. cutting the case usn't the right thing to do, akso mounting the hdd as he did isn't great, especially that hey are so close together. the temps might change my mind..

what is the setup you want to use?

old thread but i have to add -
it idles around 60c, and my ninja+scythe blow downwards abit on the card.

it actually whined at the beginning but it was just a bad sample (the new one i got does a bit when it's really hot - ~80c).
