Hi,
Hdd's are a heck of a lot different than ssd's
Hdd's put out some heat and need spaces between them to cool off plus not heat up one another.

Maybe if you use high quality velcro and your case is in a safe place where nothing can bump it, maybe.

Still wouldn't recommend it tho, I'd always recommend securely mounting your HDD's, preferably with vibration damping.

I'd suggest that if you don't want to bother with HDD cages, you're probably better off not installing HDD's in your case at all. You can just place your HDD in a raidbox or a NAS(Doesn't have to be expensive, you can build one out of an older pc.)

i was thinking drilling two small holes to screw in the side or bottom of the HD on the side or frame of the case. maybe even back mobo tray, if it has any air flow.

Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.
Upload the computer to Dropbox and provide a link to it so others may download it to examine and give advice for repairs.

Hmm yeah, i have SSDs but i also have a 4TB WD blue for random storage. I could use one of my caselabs hdd brackets as a last resolution if theres no other options.

I always remove HDD cages , since they are airflow killers . I just put my HDD in Alpenföhn Alptunnel or scythe himuro and hide it under PSU cover , or 5,25 slots .No screws just cartboard / foam /rubber under the HDD box.

Not bad! I see you have acoustic foam, do you actually notice improvement from it? For the cost of it, i thought it was only beneficial if you have alot of it in the entire room.

Non the less, looks clean!

the acoustic foam i used on my STH10 didn't make much difference... mostly because the sound comes from my fans, n the fans n rad positions on an STH10 make it near impossible to muffle their noise.

I did line the backdoor & around the window, which cut down audible pump noise at least... n may have reduced some of the noise I can hear from my flex bay radiator? it blows into my case though, so idk.

it's some hard core stuff. Better stick it on right the first time

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
