PC upgrade for SILENCE! = are these parts this a good choice? - Page 5

post #41 of 53
Not a bad idea but it's not an upgrade from a 8800GT either.

SSD's are super expensive, it's way out of budget, i need constant access to my downloads folder lol

Maybe a 2,5" drive is quieter? they run at 5400 rpm

there's 500 GB 2,5" HDDs at 60 €, it would be much better than my 3,5"?

Samsung Spinpoints are very quiet!!!

also something like this works pretty good:

I dont think it's a good idea to buy a new one though, i mean for 80-90€ you can get a Crucial M4 128GB.

But 128 GB is pretty much nothing for me lol. My pc is placed on the furniture in a place which makes it very hard if i want to install hard drives just when i need them... I need to take the pc off the furniture, remove all cables, turn it off, etc.

A 2,5" samsung spinpoint 500Gb is nowhere on the used market here lol.

I am not mentioning the idle noise, but the crackling noise, when its reading/loading .

The Spin Point is the quietest 3,5" 7200 HDD.
If you want a 5400 2,5" one the Western Digital Blue seems to be good.

-under win 8 you can easily spin down the hdd under "energy options".

-Also Id try to find a used Scythe Quite Drive 3,5", it works great and usually can be found for 15-20€ on ebay over here

install your OS and most commonly used programs on SSD and use a HDD for storage. set your settings in windows to put the mechanical HDD to sleep after like 30 mins or something unless you access the files all the time. honestly a mechanical HDD makes hardly any noise not sure why that would even be an issue as the little noise a HDD makes is subtle and doesnt last all that long, its never a constant loud clicking noise unless you are moving tons of big files or working on large stuff like video editing

Seems to be it. And since it is EOL you wouldn't be able to find it on Amazon
