A guide to a noise free HDD using stuff you can find in every home. With some rubber and little patience you may turn a Raptor into a quiet baby.... :)
Every HDD makes some noise...Fact
But! This noise is in fact amplified as HDD touches the metal case of our PC.
So if between our case and the HDD is something else (see rubber strap from a tire inner tube) then the noise is deduced significantly!
Step 1: Materials Needed
The materials you need are:
Cross cuts from a tire's inner tube (or anything like a rubber strap)
and some screws.
Step 2: Getting the HDD Out and Making Some Space
First thing you need to do is ground yourself and remember to handle carefully all the electronic equipment.
Now open the PC case carefully and take the HDD out by unscrewing and unplugging.
We need to use 2 5,25 slots (the big ones) so make some space for this.
Step 3: Screwing the Rubbers
Screw the rubber straps on the HDD and then while holding in air the HDD on the case...
If you cant screw them on th Pc case (possible) then thing about securing them with plastic straps (like i did)
Step 4: Final Thoughts
The mod is almost ready!
Dont forget to ground the HDD via a conductive cable leading to the case...
And dont shake your PC around UNLESS you secure the HDD or remove it from this fragile position.
