    Noisy dimaond max

    The only thing making a noise in my rig now is the hardrive, any idea on how to shut it up ?

    you just have to live with it unfortunatly

    i have a 160Gb diamond max that i got a year or so ago and its quite loud. Luckily, i invested in some WD hardware and now i use the 160 as back up in an icy box, so i can turn the noise on and off when i require it
