You could try suspending the drive with elastics or foam. It would help to list your specs.

If you ever need help with a build, read the following before posting: http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/3061-build-plan-thread-recommendations-please-read-before-posting/

I'm looking for the same answer, so I followed your topic @shooter27. I suggest you do the same, because you got no notification about @WoordenMarker's reply. The button is at the top right of the screen.

Welcome to the forums!

Basic guide to CPU's!

If I said I were 14, you would call me a kid. If I say 70, you’ll entitle me too old. If I say 20 you say I’m inexperienced and if I say 40 than I'm too boring.

its in the cd/dvd drive bay?

 

No idea. But the concept remains the same. Just wrap the elastic around any gaps in your HDD caddy.

The noise you're hearing is most likely the hard drive vibrating the case, suspending it using elastic completely eliminates any transfer of vibrations from the drive to the case.

Do you have any blocks of open cell foam or elastics available? You can try what LoneRangerS posted.

I cut slots into open cell foam for my drives.

My previous > current solution: (Ignore the cable mess--it's just temporary)
