Well, my WD caviar green drive and two of my three blues (one of them died) ran pretty much silently. My caviar black is pretty damn loud and one of my blues, which I think has something wrong with it, makes very loud clicking noises while seeking.

Yeah, i'm saying if you want a completely fanless (silent) system you will use SSDs, not HDDs. rolleyes.gif

Aynway, i'm just saying that the NoFan cooler is the best fanless cooler outthere. And yes i know it's only an intersting option for a small group of people.

They make noise by the number of amazed gasps that come out of people watching your computer start up.

Seems there's countless posts on the web about wd drives dying or making sounds. One of mine 'thumps' every two seconds.

My WD Black used to make noise when I first got it. Seems to have settled down now.

Yeah... there are those posts for every drive manufacturer in existence. Performance hard drives will make noise; it's not abnormal.
