Felger,

I also look forward to hearing your thoughts on the acoustic characteristics of the HD250HJ drive.

I'm really curious to see how quiet/silent this single platter drive from Samsung is.

Thanks

Thanks for the follow up here Joe123.

If anyone is interested, SunBeam sells a PCI Slot fan controller without the fan, similar to the Scythe one used in this build by joe123.

Like Tikka above, I too am interested in whether the Nexus fans now come with open corners?

I currently have two of these drives (the Western Digital and Samsung), and I'd have to say the Samsung wins noise wise. The Western Digital is pretty quiet itself, but has a noticeable idle noise in a completely quiet room (my ambient noise level is pretty low) so I was able to hear it sitting a co...

Nexus - the problem with this is that its a closed cornered fan, so you'd have to do a mod with this fan in order to mount it on the Ultra-120. Other than this drawback, its a great fan. I wish these Nexus's were made with open c...
