Why should HDD's be more audible in this then any other case? And how can you be nearly out of room with 4 HDD's the standard spaces in the case lets you fit 7 without any modding. 8 if you want to put another in the very bottom of the front HDD bays. If that aint enuff you can put a few more between the SSD Bays and PSU, several more on top of that SSD bay and untold in the Optical bays, reckon you could get 20 in there......

I'm out of room in general, not just hard drives, my back panel is bulging from the cabling.

and for example in the p180 they are mounted in rubber grommets that dampens the vibration all you can hear is a slight click of the read head moving.

right now if I place a glass of water on the floor it will ripple from the movement.

also you may reckon you can get 20, but where are you going to plug them in? addon 1k raid card?, what about powering them.. separate case with a power supply to power them?

There are such things as External drives.....you could put 500 foot cabling on them and store the drives in the garden shed or garage

I'm currently undecided if I should dignify this statement with a response. So I will just save this spot in case I do.

edit: on a separate note, I re-read the directions and I was supposed to bend the brackets to get the hard drives in, which I did not do. So I took every one out individually and reset the pins in the rubber, it made a small difference but it's still not enough.

I'm nearly out of room on my 2.7 TB.

also note my computer is in my room and runs 24/7 so headphones all the time are a no go.

also im not wearing earplugs before you guys make that comment lol

I had this problem and redid the wiring, just zip tied wires to different areas then before, and was able to fit much more back there...

How could you possibly go wrong with a sharpy Anal Avenger?

Also, to the fellow with the ungodly HDD noise; check out dynamat sound deadening. You typivally use it to insulate your trunk if you have an aftermarket exhaust to kill exhaust drone. I'd do a layer around the interior of your case, and then another around the HDD cage and it should help a LOT

Anyone recommend placing a fan on the floor of the case (where the smaller HDD cage was)?
