I have a CM cosmos 1000.
My fans and graphics card are barely audible, the only problem is a i got the dreaded hum from the HDD vibrations.
I m using SSDs for my main drive and I m looking to purchase 2 HDs for raid storage.

Due to the design of the CM cosmos HDD mounting slot, I will not be able to use a HDD dampener.
Therefore, I need to buy HDDs that have low vibration levels.
so far, I am considering WD Caviar green or hitachi laptop HDD

any input will be appreciated.

other than what you could gather from the recommended hard drives list; i would suggest suspension in the 5.25" bays. nothing beats it, and then you can select from a larger pool of drives.

laptop hdds should vibrate less, just as a rule... you'll probably be safe getting something lower than 7.2k rpm

that said... you could probably suspend a laptop drive in one of the cosmos' hdd caddies. that'd be taking it to the next level.
