That's all you need, the noise comes with the vibration of the disk against the metal/aluminium bay.

Beware heat from these hard drive adding the effect of age may cause stretch or even cut from these rubber "suspenders". When one of the string is gone, you don't know what could happen to your hard drive.

This method has been used by a multitude of people with good results, so I'll assume you're simply speculating and have never actually tried this yourself...

Got the magic stretch and installed it last night. Did two drives for a raid 0 setup. I took lots of pics, I'll be loading the OS tonight, with pics to follow.
