well i have 2 seagates 1 WD raptor and a maxtor. and i can tell you that with only 2 120mm fans running i cant hear any off them when im browsing the net. But when i start moving files about and accross them they are all vertually the same tbh. I think the seagates are abit quiter but its nothing much.

@ Trifid my raptor is almost silent so i dunno where youve heard about them whinning

Ill let u on a lil secret of mines, about turning your loud pc ---> noiseless.


AIM: To make pc noiseless.

Method:






In a swift action, we will viciously move the hammer back and forward, making contact to the pc with high force.





As you can see, the pc's shape has changed a bit, now - All is noiseless. If your into the totaly noiseless , quiet pcs, go for this, its a bargain - much better than the zalman for £880 or so. Also, as you can see, the pc has developed some speed holes.


Pros

- Completely noiseless pc, new interesting shapes, specificly shaped to the force you exert on it with the hammer.

Cons

- Jagged edges
