Cooler Master Elite 110 and 2.5" HDDs

Post by smilingcrow » Tue Jan 06, 2015 1:14 pm

I'm considering this case but it has very limited options for HDD mounting so am wondering if it can mount a single 2.5" 5,400 rpm HDD in silence; assuming the drive is quiet enough to start with.
The mounting options do concern me regarding vibration especially.
I'll be using a Samsung M9T 2TB.

Velcro.
-allows you to stick a 2.5" drive just about anywhere, and does a very decent job of decoupling vibrations from the case.
