    verify its the hard drive by holding it loose in your hand with the system powered on. Determine if the noise is whine or vibration (as in, see if the noise goes away by placing it on something soft)

    if its whine, put it in a silencing cage (solid enclosure, sealed such as the scythe quietdrive).
    if its vibration, you need to isolate it. My favourite method involves tying it up with shoelaces :D

    for silencing noisy hd's i put them in the 5.25" bay, and get some rubber bands to support it ^^

    works everytime :toast:

    the problem is that they eventually break. using shoelaces means they never break!

    If it's vibrational noise through the case you can fit rubber shock dampeners but with hard drives and CD/DVD drives the only way to have them quiet is to buy quieter ones unfortunately.

    If you've loads of money you could always buy solid state drives :laugh:
