I shall tell about the epopee of struggle against noise HDD (Sorry for my bad English):
One week ago has stopped to alter in 3-rd time boxing HDD for it has got me already the rumble. On 3-rd time has achieved this, now it is essentially impossible to define the disk works or costs even having put an ear to the system block (a stop of HDD in Windows has adjusted on 3 minutes of idle time). The main conclusion one, and it confirms words of coryphaeiâ€™s of SilentPC, want silence - suspend the HDD.
For a basis for boxing has taken a thin tin, has inside made 2 incomplete partitions for formation of a labyrinth, has fastened through wall the HDD and has pasted over Isolon 8mm in 2 layers, having left opened windows for passage of air, having counted, that Isolon will absorb vibrations:
Not here that was. There is no noise certainly became less, but it was all the same clearly audible (however has pleased cooling - in current of day at decent loading the temperature has not risen above 29Â°Ð¡). But has all the same decided to alter to achieve full vibroinsulation HDD from the case. Since the HDD closely adjoined to boxing, and to do new boxing of a tin it would not be desirable - has decided to cut out on each side windows, then inside has pasted over vibroinsulation Isomad and has suspended the HTT on three lateral extensions from elastic bands from a medical plait having fixed them for lateral walls from the same Isomad - such fastening of has not justified, the HDD all the same concerned lateral wall and the boxing vibrated.
Has suspended it on another - having thrown elastic bands atop of boxing and having fastened them on each side a HDD - now the HDD freely hung inside of boxing not concerning it walls. Has closed up boxing by Isolon and Isomad. Has established, has started and has heard only funâ€™s (at start they on 2-3 s. stay on full and a buzz of throttles in PSU. At last that of any rumble. To understand the HDD works, or has stopped because of idle time of Windows, on hearing it is impossible in any way - only indirectly to temperature attributes if has cooled down on 5-8 Â°Ñ
