Re: Crucial m4 ssd vibration

Yep that's my plan. I'll use the ft-02 side bracket to mount the ssd. Given that suspension sometimes results in higher hdd temperatures, cooling shouldn't be a problem since I've undervolted one of the large 180mm fans to always be on.

Re: Crucial m4 ssd vibration

Yeah I actually got some of the packing material and shoved it between the case and the hdd. Better but that low frequency buzz is still audible. I'm going to try the suspension method when I get back from my overseas trip.

Thanks again guys.

Re: Crucial m4 ssd vibration

Solved. not my SSD. It's my samsung harddrive. The damn thing is inducing vibration throughout the whole case; even my motherboard backplate was vibrating thought it was the icy cool fans. The m4 is also vibrating because it's close to the samsung. No wonder I couldn't pinpoint it exactly. I think i...

It seems like the vibration in my case seams to be coming from my ssd which doesn't seem right. Aren't they supposed to have no moving parts?

New video card but want it quiet

OK guys so I have an old 7900gt which was once one of the best performance/value/cooling video cards. It has served me well. I recently got Modern Warfare 2 and wanted to get a video card upgrade. However, I had a vf900 cooler on my 7900 gt so it was pretty much silent most of the time and I turned ...

Sorry to bring up an old review, but I must ask this. Wouldn't output by spdif to another DAC increase jitter? Wouldn't a USB DAC be better in terms of getting rid of jitter in the audio signal? Thanks.

Title sums it up. By the way i want it to be really really quiet. However, I have a 74gb (older) raptor so as long as its seeks aren't above 23dBa it's fine. Samsung Spinpoint T HD400LJ is a nice model and the WD counterpart are also good but I was wondering if the SPCR review ratings of the hds wil...
