Silencing hard disk in stacker (in spanish)

Recommended Posts

Bien pues aquí van unas fotillas y una breve explicación del proceso:

En primer lugar sacamos los discos duros de su posición original en la Stacker. Los discos duros tienen en su parte inferior 4 orificios para tornillos; En esos orificios vamos a atornillar 4 tornillos normales de caja. Estos tornillos nos servirás después para sujetar las gomas. No los atornilleis de todo, dejad 2 o 3 vueltas.

En la parte superior del disco duro (habitualmente cubierta con una chapa metálica) vamos a poner 12 topes de goma antideslizantes (o cualquier material análogo) en mi caso los compré en una ferretería y me costaron 2€ 60 unidades así que ya veis... Os recomiendo unos rectangulares de 3X2cm o unos redondos de 2cm de diámetro. Esos topes se van en las esquinas del disco duro en esa parte superior y va a ser el punto de unión con el cajetín y la única parte en contacto directo. En mi caso puse 3 en cada esquina, uno encima de otro, de manera que la capa aislante es bastante gruesa (sobre 2cm de espuma).

Bien la colocación de los discos es perpendicular a la colocación original, es decir en vertical, apoyando la parte superior en el lateral del cajetín con los topes de goma y la perte inferior hacia el centro del cajetín con los 4 tornillos hacia dentro.

Ahora es cuando entran en acción las gomas elásticas (yo utilicé las gomas de unas carpetas de la facultad de derecho :P ), son necesarias 2 gomas de esa longitud aproximada (sobre 50cm) y las vamos a pasar por los orificios tal y como se ve en las fotos de forma que se formen 2 "ganchitos" en el interior y es ahí donde vamos a enganchar los tornillos y por tanto los discos duros.

Como podreis ver hay mucho espacio entre el cajetín y los discos de manera que se ventilan de sobra, y ya no digamos por el centro y la parte superior e inferior...

Aqui teneis la colocación de 2 discos duros.

Las gomas yo las he enganchado en la parte inferior y es conveniente que se tense bastante para evitar el balanceo de los discos duros. Tal y como las tengo yo no se mueven absolutamente nada, de hecho puedo mover la caja y no hay pega ninguna.

Bueno con esto se consigue un nivel de silencio muy superior, en el caso de mis Barracuda 7200.7 la disminución del ruido es increible. Además la temperatura se mantiene en unos niveles excelentes gracias al ventilador del cajetín de la Stacker.

Bueno pues a ver si entre todos vamos mejorando el sistema, por cierto acordaros de utilizar un cable para la estática del disco duro, lo mejor es utilizar otro tornillo y unir un cable del lateral del disco duro a la caja para que la descargue.

Un saludo desde España. :D

Well I don't know about you guys but I got pretty much all of it except the writing which is irrelevant anyway im sure.

English Translation :

Well then they go fotillas here and a brief explanation of the process: In the first place we removed hard disks from its original position in the Stacker. The hard disks have in their inferior part 4 orifices for screws; In those orifices we are going to screw 4 normal screws of box.

These screws you will serve to hold rubbers to us later. Not atornilleis of everything, you leave 2 or 3 returns them. In the superior part of the hard disk (habitually covered with a metallic plate) we are going to put 12 nonskid rubber tops (or any analogous material) in my case I bought them in an ironworks and cost to me 2? 60 units so you already see... I recommend rectangular of 3X2cm or round ones to you of 2cm of diameter. Those tops go away in the corners of the hard disk in that superior part and is going to be the tie point with the stamp and the only part in direct bonding.

In my case I put 3 in each corner, one upon another one, so that the insulating layer is enough thickness (on 2cm of foam). The positioning of discs is perpendicular well to the original positioning, is to say in vertical, supporting the superior part in lateral of the stamp with the rubber tops and perte inferior towards the center of the stamp with the 4 screws towards inside.

Now it is when the elastic rubbers conduct battle (I used rubbers of folders of the faculty of right Razz), are necessary 2 rubbers of that approximate length (on 50cm) and we are going them to happen so through the orifices and as it is seen in the photos so that 2 "ganchitos" in the interior form and is there where we are going to hook the screws and therefore the hard disks.

As podreis to see is much space between the stamp and discs so that they are ventilated very well, and no longer we say by the center and the superior and inferior part... Aqui teneis the positioning of 2 hard disks. The rubbers I have hooked them in the inferior part and is advisable that is tightened enough to avoid the balance of hard disks.

So and as I have do not move absolutely anything, in fact I can move the box and she does not have sticks none. Good with this a level of very superior silence is obtained, in the case of my Barracuda 7200,7 the diminution of the noise is incredible.

In addition the temperature stays in excellent levels thanks to the ventilator of the stamp of the Stacker. Good then for seeing if between all we are improving the system, by the way acordaros use a cable for statics of the hard disk, the best thing is to use another screw and to unite a cable of the lateral one of the hard disk to the box so that the unloading. A greeting from Spain. Very Happy

Indeed.

Sr_Lobo - in the future could you post in English please, or if your English isn't very good run your text through a translator and post the translated version, it'll make life easier for the majority of people on these forums who only speak/read English. Thanks.

Oh, and welcome to the forums :)

Good work on the hdd silencing though, I've done a similar thing (suspending my hdd's), you can see more info in this thread.
