I posted this in the 2400 section but it would work in 2480 as well.
So I just swapped out the original whining 40Gb harddisk on the VS2400 and also changed out the fan to a quieter one. \:\)
The IDE to Sata board I use works in both 2480 and 2400, and I'm using an Intel 520 Series SSD, note that the 320 doesn't work. The fans are the same model as well. I've swapped it out with a Noctua NF-R8 redux-1200 and prefer this to the Silenx Ixtrema which has a really quiet but audible ticking sound.
Silence is bliss.
