NoiseMagic NoVibes III review
If you have a generally quiet PC, but are annoyed by the noise your hard disk makes while loading or searching, it’s well worth investing in a NoVibes III cage. It only costs £17, and it cleverly isolates any 3.5in hard disk from the chassis using thick rubber bands. You need to install your disk in a 5.25in drive bay, but the NoVibes won’t cause your disk to run any hotter or impede airflow. The rubber bands hold the hard disk firmly in place, so it won’t become damaged should you knock or move the PC. We took a Western Digital Caviar SE16 and installed it with the NoVibes III, which reduced previously audible noise from the disk to an almost imperceptible level.
