Welcome to SPCR!!!

I think you will find that after you have managed to silence those HDD's, you'll find the case fan is noisy, after that, maybe you find the PSU ramps up to much, etc... Enjoy the addiction :lol: That looks like it'll be hard to silence those HDD's though, there are 3 of them in quite a small place, this calls for creativity. If you look around for drive suspension threads (there are plenty), I think in the one titled "Drive suspension - show your pics" or something, there was one where somebody cut out the drive cage, and built their own with pieces of aluminium L channel, and then suspended the HDD's with elastic. That might work for you...

Welcome! Nice looking computer!

I'm very concerned about those hard drives, though. Regardless of whether you're bothered by the noise, they're almost certainly not receiving enough cooling. In the past, I've crammed hard drives that close together, and as a result I consistently killed them one by one due to overheating.

IMHO, you really need to do something about keeping those hard drives cool, even if it means more fan noise.
