Default Scythe Quiet Drive HDD Cooler and Silencer Review

The original Scythe Silent Box has been discontinued, in its place this superior, lower cost Quiet Drive will take over the task of keeping your hard drives quiet and cool. Can this compact box reduce high pitched noises or will it melt your HD platters? Find out in this review

Good review.

As you've been into to the inner pieces of the quiet drive recently I have a question.

The inner aluminium "box" is there any space for "soft mounting" the hdd in it?
With some rubber rings around the screws or something?
Or will this just prevent the 'system' to work its way?

If it would work it would be a soft mounted hdd in a soft mouted scythe. Double vibration dampening.

there is already double vibration the rubber inside #1, the mounting to the case #2

there is no room left around the drive for any extra soft mounting, wouldn't make a difference either for the sound, and would make the drive run hotter due to less contact with the metal shell
