I bought a new 1tb hard disk for 50€. But in the PC it is the loudest component. I'll show you how to make the HDD silent.

Step 1: You Need:

You only need a unused 5" drive space, a sponge and the vibrating HDD.

Step 2: How To?

I used 2 sponges, split each in half. Put the sponges around the hard disk. Finish!

<p>That's a neat simple fix :)</p>
<p>Thank you! It works perfekt.</p>
How does it effect the drives temperature? Surely all that padding hinders air flow<br>
<p>If Crystaldiskinfo is correct, the used WD Blue 1tb is 43&deg;C warm, and my SSD 44&deg;C. I believe without the fix my HDD had a temperature of ~34-40&deg;C.</p>
