Scythe Hard Disk Stabiliser II Anti-vibration 5.25 to 3.5 inch Converter

Scythe's Hard Disk Stabilisers are designed to ensure that vibrational noises from your hard drives are not transmitted into the chassis. This significantly cuts down on the "rumbling" and "clicking" noises which are very commonly produced by hard disk drives. This product can even be used even with the fastest and hottest of hard drives, and will give good noise reduction benefits. A very simple but effective product!

Customer Reviews

Great Product

,

Very easy installation... Haven't heard any noises since installing it... I have screw-less drive bays (not with railing), and it fits perfectly.

Believe the Hype

,

That is, of course, assuming there is in fact some hype surrounding these units. Anyway, this is pretty much the best investment I've made in terms of PC silencing to date.

It almost - if not entirely - killed my HDD noise; and this is in the fairly open HAF 912, where the drive sits right in front of open honeycomb mesh. I can't say for certain that it completely killed HDD noise as I tend to have music or AC going - needless to say, I have yet to hear seek noise over those other ambient noises.

It seems to be at least as good, if not a bit better than, the Nexus HDD noise reduction adapter for sale on this site (which I also have also been using).

The only caveat here is that you need standard mounting holes on your 5.25" bay or this thing will be very loose, if it even stays in place. My case uses removable toolless locking mechanisms which were thankfully hiding the standard mounting holes. I recommend screwing it in for a snug fit even if you have toolless.

Does the job. No problems.

Really useful

,

I found this little thing really useful. My only gripe is that it comes in a card-backed packet. During shipping the two metal side pieces appear to have slid out of the top of the packet, and were then loose in my package, with one of them half sticking out of the bubblewrap bag. Luckily nothing was lost or broken, but it's something to bear in mind - Maybe a bit of tape over the top of the packet would help.

Safe Suspension

,

If your case has no form of drive suspension and your too scared to use elastic then this is the next best thing.

I've mounted my WD Green 500gb drive with these in my Media Centre PC in a standard 5 1/4 inch drive bay and the hard disk is inaudible unless you put your ear right up to the case!

This is a great, inexpensive way, to make your PC even quieter. Secure, safe, cheap an quiet - brilliant!
