I'm very happy with my Nidec 250 (2504C). granted, it went in as the third drive in the system so my baseline is a bit higher than I'd like, but it's definitely MUCH quieter than the two Seagate 120s surrounding it and much cooler too.

Clarification:

Thor in my sig is the overclocked/undervolted A64.
Odin is my palomino, definitely not as quiet even running f@h at 75% CPU load. Any more and it starts crashing with the low airflow I'm giving it.

WARNING WARNING!! Palominos are notoriously hot & notoriously bad undervolters. You'd be lucky getting more than 0.5V decrease at all. AFAIK, it's a CPU chip problem, not a problem of the motherboard. Barton is a totally different case though. As for undervolting, full CPU speed & 100% load, check o...

Make sure your board is the KT800 PRO chipset, not the non-pro. That's the chipset on my Thor rig and i'm running an A64 3000+ (2 Ghz) at 2.4 GHz, folding at full load 24/7. I remember non-pro being slightly buggy.

I've been told by Seagate to never ever attempt firmware change on a harddrive. Apparently the versions are very closely coupled to minor changes in the hardware and the most innocious firmware update results in a dead harddrive - at least that's what they said.

uGuru & MBM report the same temps in my KV8Pro board. I'm guessing the MBM uGuru support is a cover-all-versions support and therefore may be reading a different sensor than the correct one.

I also use MBM. The uGuru software is large, obtrusive and one serious CPU-cycle hog.
