2.5" Hard Drives via PCI Slot

Just thought I would post this here in case it could be of use to someone here. Saw it at Tom'sHardware (yawn). A Hard Disk In A PCI Slot?

Not too crazy about even anodised Al myself. Still though, a pair of the 550s might serve as a nice substitute to the uninsulated copper waterheater tank I've basically given up trying to get ahold of for my project (link). I could always setup a sacrificial anode.

Makes a lot of since really. I'm suprised we (i.e. I) haven't seen it before. SPCR modders seem to do everything at least a year before it's found on the street lol. :lol:

Hum, perhaps this technique could be a nice way to decouple a fan inside a duct.

Good call frank. Just though of the SilverStone fan a little while ago. evilgawd, the most common way of slowing down a fan is to reduce its voltage. PWM is different. It pluses 12v to the fan and how often/infrequent it sends the pluse determines how fast the fan will run. Don't have time for detai...

Don't go the Panaflo route! About 99% of the samples just won't quiet down. You already know my suggestion (not suggestion s as according to frank's post pctekonline is a no-go now).

Re: stupid question

Hmm... maybe I should suggest one? Or start one your self. :) SpaceDreamer, definitly don't feel bad. I actually didn't figure out what it was myself until later in my quest for quietness.

Awesome. Looking forward to hearing from you with orders on the way! The pitch of the fan looks pretty shallow...a good thing for high restrictive enviroments.

Spinning the fans up to 12V results in a substantial hum, substantial enough that readings at 1m became possible: 31 dBA front, 33 dBA side, and 35 dBA rear. This is due to the fact that the right side door begins resonating as the Nexus is brought near to full speed. I had thought my foam block/el...
