I discovered that if I remove the removable harddrive rack and put it on a piece of cork on the floor of my case, the computer is much quieter.

Are all Antecs as loud as mine was before? There was a constant metallic whine of various pitches. I attribute the noise to the rivets holding the guides to the case and the number of parts involved in the process.

Anybody find a "perfect" solution?

Hmmmm. No, I don't have a solution, but thanks for the tip. My Antec is fairly loud too, so I might give your cork bit a try. Thanks.

I used a cork tile, cut in half.
It's outrageously expensive, $2.00 per tile, but it's an excellent noise/vibration reducer. I found that size doesn't matter, it's where you put it that counts.
