Default 2TB Drive Selection Decisions

I'm rebuilding my server & need some input on which 2tb hard drive may be perfect for my setup. I will be purchasing 1 or 2.

There is a 75% chance my rebuilt server will be running CentOS 5.5 (Linux) so if this will sway my decision I would like to be informed as to why. I'm not for absolute max transfer rates but more focused on reliability, low heat & quiet operation. I would also like an affordable setup which includes the drives.

Here are my contenders so far.

Hitachi DeskStar 7K2000
Seagate barracuda LP
Samsung echoGree F3 or F2
Western Digital caviar Green (EADS or EARS)
GOD Is Good

AMD Ryzen 1700 CPU
Asrock AB350 Pro 4 Motherboard
Corsair LPX 16GB (2x8GB) 3200Mhz
Adata SX8000 256GB NVME Drive
Crucial MX300 525GB M.2 Drive
Corsair H105 AIO
Phanteks P400S Tempered Glass Edition
EVGA Supernova 650 G3
