Yeah in that case it's the camera angle, the tube is clear of the gpu

I have another question, maybe someone could give some tip.

The hdd "vibrates" a lot, and these vibrations make the case "buzz".

Its not a loud buzzing, but still audible if you focus on it.

Im triying to isolate the vibrations or something, but i dont know what to do frown.gif

Thank you for the support!

This is caused by one of the HDD not sitting quite square. Try switching the HDD positions. You can also put a small piece of foam, cardboard, etc between the drives to apply slight pressure to make it stop.

The problem with most of them, is that they turn a 3.5 HDD to a 5.25 HDD.

I have this one my self: http://www.scythe-eu.com/en/products/hdd-cooler/himuro.html
Comes with the added benefit of removing noise when the HDD is working and keeps it cooler then with just anti-vibration.

No. Just no. Not a viable solution for the case in question, and not really a good answer for any application. One simply finds the source of the buzz and rectifies it. You don't spend money on a part and relocate your HDD to save three minutes of investigation.

It depends on the HDD, as some of them makes a lot of noise, when when vibration is taken out of the equation, as my WD Blacks do. Plus you get more space to mount SSDs.

But you can do it easier, if you know how to mod the HDD cage a little, as you generally need a new mounting system to prevent vibration from moving to the case.
If you dont move the case, so can getting rid of the tray and using zip ties/rubber bands, be an easy solution.

Yeah im triying to get rid of this vibrations with some foam!.
post #15446 of 19146
I think some used the rubber grommets, but who knows you may buy a black piece of foam from the crafting dept at a walmarrt and make your own.. its cheap and double sided tape you could line them up and stick them. Other then that a lowes or hardware may have something you can try to use that is all rubber.

The problem is not the HDD it self, but how its mounted.
Most use a screw mounting of some kind, meaning you need to get something between those screws and the HDD cage, to even get an effect.
With a tray, so do you need to isolate the entire tray from the HDD cage.

Only way to use foam, is to remove the tray all together and just have foam all the way around the HDD, without any other kind of mounting. But dont expect good temps.

But this is still the easiest DIY method:

augh you just need some Drive Rails as they are called.. Some local shops or even junk stores may have them around.

I was suggesting he put a small piece of foam or cardboard between the drives to apply light pressure. This causes the drive sleds to sit firmly and not vibrate. That is the cause in the Pro M and Evolv ATX.

I have seen them and most of them makes 3.5 into 5.25, also they dont have any anti-vibration, unless you put some money in them.

If you think thats enough, then it can be worth trying.
But in my experience, so is HDD vibration caused by the screws/tray moving with the HDD. Meaning that locking the up and downward movements might not be enough, as you need to account for sideways as well. Plus if you have enough drives or one that shakes a lot, the hole HDD cage might vibrate, meaning you need to isolate it as well.
