Silent hard disk in cardboard box

  This silent box for hard disk was made in two evenings(from this silent pc). It is fast to do, cheap and of good quality. Characteristic is good as usual.
Properly speaking, this construction wouldn’t become prominent and deserve an individual article if one small misunderstanding didn’t happen… If you didn’t read our articles about silent hard disks I advise you to fill the gap in your knowledge. If you have read the articles about silent hdd here and here, you most likely remember the main point of the project. It is easy as a pie. Even beginners can comprehend the essence of the project.
  Well, now I’ll tell about the mentioned above misunderstanding. People desiring to make such construction began to complain of strange clang appearing in working device. We conjectured for a long time about its nature and methods of the clang elimination. There were different versions: insufficient weight of the modded device, bad grinding of surfaces, and even unfortunate disposition of stars in the sky at the time of the mode making…
  So, I made next silent hard disk and … my modded device began clanging as well. I’ll tell everything step by step… The object became a narrow 3.5 inch hard disk of 80 GB of Seagate. Having looked over about 40 hard disks (I had such opportunity), I succeeded in finding a unique sample with normal spindle balance and working without vibration. Fix it on two aluminium plates of Zalman cooler of hard disk.

  Make a model of cardboard and cut out with its help an aluminium plate of proper thickness, for electronics cooling.

  It should be mentioned that electronics board is made in a convenient way for us: the components look inside. This makes the cooler construction easier.

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.
