Hiya,

So... I have two WD 2TB Green 5400 RPM drives in my build, the build is very new but I've reused the drives from my old build. I have a lot of video files etc as well as games hence the large capacity.

Drives perform great but they really are noticeably loud now they are in my cheap case rather than the expensive RAID enclosure I used to have them in. Do we think the WD Blue drives would be quieter? I also think I might as well go for 7200 drives but can't find a WD Blue with 2TB at 7200...

Any thoughts? Ed
