|Drive is very quiet, makes a little heat though. So I use dhte 12volt fan mod. Now system overall is a little noiser though, but quite cooler! <g>
Also VERY speedy, as it has a huge cache (8mb) and a nice 7200RPMs. Great drive overall!
Also, if the model nubmer ends in RK, it WORKS! It just means its a retail drive, which this one was.
