I've been looking to quiet down my PC for a while. I did some spring cleaning on it, redid some cable management, and took the time to check which part(s) of my build make the most noise; as I had expected, it's my HDD. After reading a bit on other people who shared the issue of wanting a quiet but cheap mass storage solution, I found the following tips to be the most common:
Make sure it's 2.5"
5400 or 5900 RPM if you don't want an SSD
So, I come to ask if you guys have some more tips to add to this list, and also to ask if there is anything one should know before buying a 2.5" HDD.
Thanks in advance :)
Edit: My current HDD is this Seagate BarraCude 1 TB drive. While I'm at it, I'd like to upgrade to 2TB or above.
