I have had an R4 since the start of the year. I was very happy with it until upgrading my storage. The anti-vibration was very ineffective in reducing the vibration noise of a 4TB WD Black. I had previously a 2TB Samsung and 3TB Seagate and they were both quiet. But introducing the Black seemed to have put everything out of whack. 2 drives was tolerable, but a 3rd made horrible resonance/vibration noise.

So, after trying multiple configurations of drives, both cages in, only one cage, using Antec silicone grommets, etc etc... I finally resorted to fully elastic suspension for all three drives.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The elastic is all a bit messy. but it works. Since this first attempt Ive reconsidered how I could do it better, simpler, faster. So I'm thinking of redoing it and producing a tutorial. I'll post it here and/or on SPCR and OCAU.

The R4 is such a great case, but the hdd cages seem unprepared for the heavier 3tb and 4tb 7200rpm drives. Mine certainly was anyway.

a bit like this maybe?




OF course, trading in the drives for a handful of samsung MZ-7TE1T0BW would also resolve it
(not cheap though)

You mean 840 Pro SSD? Lol, yes not cheap! I have a 1TB of those on my "maybe some day" wishlist. And that wouldnt resolve it really because I need more capacity.

In that photo you posted there is a generous amount of clearance between the drive and the sides of the drive bay. In the drive cage of the R4 there is hardly any space on the sides of a 3.5" drive, so the elastic presses right up against the side and the drive and the vibration still carries through. Its still a good idea because it does reduce the vibration, but not enough to silence the drives Im using.

The MZ-7TE1T0BW is a 1T SSD smile.gif, just need a hand full of them smile.gif

Of course, since seagate is now making WireLess Harddrives, there is no longer a need to have a harddrive in the PC. Actually, since consumer oriented NAS, there is no longer a need to have harddrives in the PC.




The pic showed using a 3.5 in 5.25 bay of course (or maybe it was a 2.5 laptop drive in a 3.5 bay?)


If you want to use the space where the 3.5 bays reside, you have to build a slightly wider custom frame.
But there are lots of possibilities.. like even on their side, , lenghtwise in a 3 side-by-side; since modern drives aren't that fuzzy anymore about their orientation.

The SATA power on the HDs is custom made? I want something like that. Very slick.

Yes I did it myself. Very easy to do if you have crimping tools.
