Do the suspension with the HDDs on the edge -- rotate the pic below 90 dgrees. Or not. The string is elastic band from a sewing shop. If the drives are pretty quiet and have little whine, this is unbelievably effective. It's kind of eerie, the lack of vibrations and seek noise... and then you get used to it and blanch when you run into a system that makes audible HDD noise.The article is first in the Storage sectionof the main site.

The problem is that my 3,5" drive cage in my Chieftec Winner(like Dragon inside) case is shorter verticaly than horisontally..

1) Mount them up in an empty 5.25" bay, if you have the space.

2) Suspend them below the 3.5" HDD bays in a spare 5.25" bay enclosure like the one shown in MikeC's pictures. Just lay this bay on the floor on the case sitting on a piece of foam. Throw a quiet fan in the front case wall to blow cool air over the drives (as they tend to run hotter when suspended due to the lack of the "heatsink effect" of being hard-mounted to the metal case).

Main Box: Intel i3-3225, Intel DH77EB, 16GB Corsair RAM, 256GB Samsung 830, SS360GP PSU, CM PS07 case.
Music Server: Intel DH77EB + i3-3220, 2xSamsung 2TB F4, Pico PSU, Fractal Define Mini, 2xScythe Fans @250 rpm.
