Very nice build. Looks bit like my Three Hundred, just lesser fans. Thanks for the idea how to mount my HDD. I modified your idea and used the strip my WD 640 GB Black with VibeFixer / NoVibesIII same way you did.

I expect no 1TB is as quiet as my single platter, but near as quiet would be sifficient. Since my Samsungs have worked well and due problems newest 1TB WD's have, the F2 EcoGreen 1Tb seems like an excellent choice.

Thank you very much, whiic.
