Samsung HDs are still amoungst the quietest but Silent PC Review found a new WD HD to be the questest desktop drive they've heard to date - check out SPCR. The Raptors are, surprisingly, very quiet idle but still very loud when reading/writing/seaking.mentaldisorder - The P150 case BBurk bought has its very own HD suspension system Nice to know manufacturers are finally catching up and if anyone is going to pioneer a noise reducing feature it will be Antec.For the heatsink, the choice is simple: Scythe Ninja Plus. Check out my review on HardwareHell (there is a link to it in the consumer review section of these forums).BBurk, I don't visit these forums as often now so if you post any updates and want me to have a look just PM me (and I'll get an email) with a link to this thread.
