Enclosures and acoustic damping to help quiet them.

the hard drive cage is horrible. Not only is the hard drive trays cheap and flimsy but the entire apparatus is LOUD! I wish silverstone put more emphasis on noise dampening on this part of the case!

I guess they were expecting everyone to SSD it up... anyone use regular HDD's and found a solution to the noise?

I had a feeling this would be the er case! Is the cage removable so you can use normal screws perhaps with rubber washers?

It is funny actually. My HDD in FT02 is much quieter than it was in my Xigamtek Midgard case, but the sound of my graphic card is much more noticeable in this case.

You can get an HDD enclosure for 2,5 inch drives and use one; it should fit the HDD cage.
