I have read in SPCR that "bungie" suspension is the best way avoid noise emission from internal hard drives. However, I can't use that solution because my box needs to be transportable without opening it up for surgery. Also, I am not so mechanically inclined for such a project. I have also read that rubber grommets do not help much in a hard-mounted situation. So, I am wondering if there is some intermediate-level approach that would be helpful.
My drive is a 3.5" WD4000FYYZ "enterprise" 4TB/7200 rpm model. The case has 5.25 and 3.5 bays open and also floor space available.
Would something like the Sharkoon Vibe Fixer III (http://www.sharkoon.com/?q=en/content/vibe-fixer-iii
) make sense? It is a kit that mounts a 3.5 drive on rubber bumpers in a 5.25" bay.
I'm sure somebody has written something on this type of question but I haven't been able to discover succinct current advice as yet.
