Is your Hard drive vibrating? My case uses anti vibration rubber, maybe you just need something like that

It may be, its inside a CM Storm case thats pretty large.

But problem is those that you just showed me wouldnt fit in my case as i use HDD rails and no screws..

Anything else? :P

Thats good, might be a worthwhile investment.

Might give those a try one day as the noise kind of does my head in!

I use SpeedFan and my fans are always at 50% mostly which makes them pretty silent.

Congrats on the Member badge.

Lay the drive on a non-metallic surface and not on an anti-static bag, the outside of them is conductive.
