A noiseless hard drive in one day


  So, with the help of sticky tape take the tubule out and let it breathe. It seems big only in the picture; in practice it is very difficult to find and the hole from above looks like décor…
 


  Fill up the cabinet with thermal paste; level the paste by means of a credit card. House the hard disk carefully into the box with a little forcing; be attentive not to damage fragile disk.
 


  Coat it with the paste, level the excess of the paste and cover the cabinet with a lid. All the free space of the box must be filled up with paste.
 


  The bottom of the noiseless box is covered with a lid. The construction is very simple. It consists of a rectangular piece of aluminium and two keeper strips.

  And now I’ll mention the thermal paste. We spent about 500 g of it. Few people, even those working with computers, know that thermal paste is very cheap. It’s not more expensive than oil paint.
  The retail price of a big tin of the paste is about 4 $ per kilogram. The paste of foreign production is still cheaper. You can find it in a market; it’s better to ask the price of a kilogram, not a tube.
  That’s all. You may proceed to the testing of noise and vibration absorbing characteristics of thermal paste.

Non-constructive thoughts about modding...

    All began when one day my neighbour, he is Automatic Control Engineer, came and started to beg me to give him one diode. When I asked him why, he typed modding in a search engine. And it had a great effect on me. I was sick about it. Maybe there is nothing accidental in the world and this modding seed fell into good soil. All my life I was interested in design.
