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.

Hi Bran

I have bought both of the above fans but they have a 3 prong power supply tip, rather than the stock that has 2, how’d you get around this? Just formatting my drive now with a ssd so hopefully that will be okay!

Cheers

Hey, I'm so sorry i didn't see this earlier. I posted this in the other thread.

It comes with a 3pin connector. You will need to cut and use the original 2pin connector that is on the Sanyo fan. Not a difficult thing to do. I solder them before using electrical tape to bind them. Or you can just twist them and use electrical tape to make sure the two bare wires do not touch.
As for the connection, just trial and error and make sure the fan blows outwards.
Cheers,
Brandon
