where do you advise me to hide it? on the bottom next to the psu side, or just hang it behind the cable management wall?

btw when youre done with you build... do you mind posting here about your wd red noise level?
i just got my first wd red when i build the pc. when the drive is seeking or im saving something to it / playing games on it, it's really LOUD.
it's so loud initially i was afraid it's dying.

but then when i investigate further... the clicking sound only comes when the drive is being use, for example, im typing this post on my laptop, and my PC is fairly quiet. but when i try to game / save files / rename files / even making new folder on it, it sounds so loud. clack clock clack clock like something i've never hear before.

before studying about building a PC, i've got 6 or 7 mybook 3.5" external drive, i'd assume it's green? i am familiar with what's wd green seeking noise sounds like, but this is very very loud... it's on par with the sound of me watching some video. i set my video on low sound though.

i checked with crystaldiskinfo and it's status reported as good. im doing extended test at the moment with WD lifeguard diagnostics...
i don't think i can RMA locally if common test report doesn't report anything bad. because warranty is handled by local distributors here frown.gif

but im quite curious whether this loudness is common on wd red or not... ofc others that uses red at the moment please chime in, what should i do, as this is my first red, and im fairly disappointed with it.
It's just RANDOM

The Hue will not fit on the back with the cable management it is much to bulky for that. It would have tucked behind the PSU shroud. I am not sure of the dimensions of the hue so I can't tell you what is best for sure, but there is no doubt you can get it in there.

Hence why I like the black one.

I agree, mine is black internals with a white outside.

Build started but will halt for the night and to be continued over the weekend. I'd love to do an allnighter but have come to my senses for once... biggrin.gif

As for the noise of the reds I'll definately report bac, I got them because I assumed them to be relatively quite and had that backed by some forum posts that I've read (don't ask me where...wink.gif) . I have an external Seagate drive that makes that kind of increadibly disturbing CLICK CLACK searching noise, never heard it before and never on any other drives. Let's hope these doesn't sound like that but I really don't think they will as then others would surely have reported it. Hmm... time will tell. Whish you the best.

If they're actually loud for me as well I'll put them to work in the closet in a NAS as they were intended for.

Ah, just saw you had thin rads. Might just work in the H630.

My plan, if I go for a H630, was to remove the ODD cage in order to offset the front rad and squeeze in a 240cm. :-)

Ah, then you can put the rad with the tank and connectors facing up giving you a bit more space in the bottom, dunno how close it will come to the top rad, probably will be fine.

since the red drive is only clackety loud when being accessed.... and very quiet when not being accessed at all... does that mean it's probably not faulty / working as intended..?
(this is my first internal 3.5" drive so i have no comparison)

if i may ask... other than WD lifeguard diagnostic extended tests, what are some tests i could do to check whether the drive working properly or not...?
there's no return policy where i live and even if im RMA to local distributor im too lazy to argue with them since crystaldiskinfo reporting it to be just fine

For everyone who has been asking about internal space,

y4qq.jpg

Just to show everyone what the dimensions look like in push/pull with a 45mm rad and 60mm res. An no, a compression fitting will not work on the bottom...

Dual 360's have a very close tolerances. Top rad is Alphacool ST-30 and Front rad is Alphacool XT-45. 2~3mm spacing between the two using stock holes. Plumbing would (will) have to happen with the top of the case off. Will probably have to shave off the backside of the top fan to allow for the plugs to fit.



I should probably start a build log rather then cluttering up this thread...

Thank you so much for these pictures, they help more than you know! I do have a couple questions though:

#1 - I'm running the same ST30 rads as you, but different sizing, 2 x 280mm, will these fit top and front in this case? If so, are there actual mounts for them, or would they need to be drilled?
#2 - My rez is very similar to yours as well (like I said, helpful pics), how many mm long is your rez? Mine is 250mm and then about 80mm diameter.
#2.5 - How much space is from where your rez is sitting (I guess the PSU shroud) to the bottom of where your st30 would be (if mounted to the top)?
