Alright, I installed those rubber grommets. I believe it is quieter, but I can still hear it, especially when starting up Steam, that's when it's at it's noisiest. Oh well, I guess if it bothers me too much I can just get an SSD. tongue.gif

I find it strange that none of the reviews for the Spinpoint F3 mention how noisy it is. Do you think I could have a defective drive?
