|Works properly, need to make sure that jumpers are set accordingly (the jumper list on the HDD is unclear). I had trouble putting the drive into the system, you need to angle it while you put in the first screw. The other screws should be straightforward.. Can't really pinpoint noise but sounds close to stock hard drive. As for heat, I can't really tell. My system idles at 48 degrees Celsius GPU and 50 degrees Celsius CPU (my system has new thermal compound, so temperatures could be different on your systems).
