Hi, this is my first post.
I love tinkering with my computer and I have rather strange tastes that I'm willing to pay to satisfy. My current mission is to have a very quiet deskptop that I also use as a server. I don't want to NAS because I want it all in one clean box.
My specs are Define r4 case, fanless CPU heat sinks, fanless PSU, ASUS GTX 660, 1 SSD, and 3 WD REDS. I like to have my case up on the my desk. Right now the only noticeable sound are my HHDs. I'd like to quiet them down.
I built this 4 sided box enclosure that I put on top of my lower HDD cage. It works a little, but not much. I'm looking into http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications ... u=S23-1082
cause they would fit my budget.
Some things I'm considering
1) 2 Silenx LXHDSS in my optical cages, 1 Silenx LXHDSSjust sitting on the floor of my case
2) 3 Silenx LXHDSS all stacked on top of each of there with silencing foam in between.
3) Some other option that you guys can teach me about.
Thanks so much.
