one thing you should know about the hard drive grommets, if your case wasn't designed to use some king of grommet there's virtually no chance you'll be able to use these without destroying the grommet when trying to get the drive in place unless maybe you can bend the sides of drive cage outwards.
FYI, in case anyone's interested, the Ever Case 4252 appears to have the correct mountings for these grommets on their HD cages. That won't do anyone much good without the right shoulder bolts though.
JC purchased the HDD shock proof kit for the E4252 from Ever Case, in another post he said this about it...
1 Kit $1.75 + 6.02 shipping. 8 grommets, 8 long hard drive screws, 8 thin metal disks to block em interference - enough to mount two hard drives. Instructions for using the grommets actually comes with the case itself.
I'm assuming that the grommets in this kit are the same blue E.A.R. grommets that are shown in the article on E4252 here
. If so then it looks like a good deal (cheaper than McMaster), and it includes the long screw, and the little metal disk.
How does the little metal disk (I assume this is a little thin metal washer] prevent em interference? Do you people use these little washers when you install rubber grommets that you buy separately? I certainly would not have known that such a thing was needed.
I read that if you mount a drive with rubber grommets that you need to provide an alternate ground connection from the drive to the case. Is this what I should do since I plan to use grommets?
On the topic of making your own bolt for use with the grommet, in this article the author is using the E4252 case, and regular black rubber grommets purchased from the hardware store for $1-$2. He makes the bolts using parts from items in the spare parts bag that comes with the E4252. It's in this article about modding the E4252 here
. Towards the end of the article is the mod where he glues a motherboard standoff and another screw together to make a screw that will go through the rubber grommet into the hard drive.
