I got all my parts in, fired the beast up and one of the 120 GB WD SE drives started emitting this heinous squealing noise, like a freakin' Delta fan! The other drive is perfectly normal, but now I can't get this thing up and running, since I was going to use RAID-0. :cry:

Luckily I still have this laptop for now. :(

Well, I did have another 120 GB WD SE that I had a ton of backup data on, but I got most of it onto CD-R and wiped it and setup the array. I'm on a basic install of XP, no service packs, no tweaks or anything. This sucks because I want two completely new drives in this thing and not one old and one new. Plus, it's gettin' near bed time.

Agrees with Yardy.....as quiet as they seem to be..I wouldn't mind a slighty faster fan either.......

Yeah, I went ahead and put the stock heatsink on and got a 6 degree drop. Unlike the old P4 fans, though, this thing is quite loud.
