My rig IS an old pentium 4. Not sure if I should be proud of that or not...

I see your bet and raise to ghetto-modded 212 Evo, cut-out rear panel for shoehorned 120mm, another 120mm in 5.25 bays, zip-tied fan for the AGP GPU, and astronautics-grade vibration dampeners for the PATA HDD biggrin.gif .

Does a 3.25 floppy and an agb 6x count?

It does seem like a decent dampener and easy screw less solution.

Not sure how ghetto this really is, I think it's brilliant and works best. I have tried the shoelaces, tried leather cording (the leather does in fact work well, but it's ugly and you can tell its leather... but I used black so it wasn't so bad), and I tried a few different elastics until I found the best one for sound deadening. It's called "black non-roll 1 inch elastic" and I got two packs of it at Walmart for like $2.50 each or something. Link to Wallyworld product just so you can see what to look for if you decide to do it, something similar should be available at any craft store like a Michael's or Jo-Ann's or whatever: http://www.walmart.com/ip/1-Non-Roll-Elastic-Black/19757871. If you have holes instead of big slots like I do, then you can find about the same stuff, black elastic cord, and use the same method I did.

What I did is, using only 1 pack of it, I stretched the elastic tight around the HDD one time and tied it tight, so I have a baseline attachment. Then I slipped it through the slots on each side of my HDD cage, then back around to underneath the drive, then I tied it very tight while pulling on BOTH sides so that the drive will be centered in the cage and not touching any sides.

It is a very loud old WD 7200 rpm drive, and it is silent now. But notice I have added some Dynamat/GTMat to the outside, yes this does increase the temps by about 5 degrees C, but the drive maxes out at 45C while the other media drive maxes out at 40C. (link to the sound dampening I use for drives and on back of my mobo tray: Ebay: GTMat License Plate Kit 2 sheets of 80mil Ultra

Here's some pics of it all together, I should have taken pics as I put it together but oh well, my description should be enough if you want to try it.
Cost: ~$2.50 for 1 pack of elastic, enough to do 1 HDD. $3.99 for one kit of GTMat sound dampening "licence plate kit" enough to do 2 HDD's
Silence: priceless!!!

3.5" or 5.25"? 3.25" is not a thing. I'm rocking a 3.5" drive myself because ASRock included a port for it for some reason. There's also a port supporting 2x ATA-133 connections, which would not be bad for a dedicated Compact Flash reader (I believe it is a native PATA device) if I were into photography.

I've also seen thick rubber bands used. Acts as a shock absorber for obvious reasons and as a sound dampener for some of the louder 3.5" drives out there or 10 000RPM server drives. Yes, that means you, RAID 0 VelociRaptor owners!
