I did my own test after reading this to see if it had any effect on my hard drives.. and it did virtually nothing.

My test included playing the song:
Feel the bass II - DJ Magic mike

Which looks like this (little video I made a few months ago):


And this is the test before with NO music playing:
2X 320GB WD SE16 in RAID 0.


After, whilst music is playing: (Barely any different... my tests usually vary by a few MB/sec each time anyways:


Asking why I have a my little pony? Well I killed it..

Hmmmm.. I wonder what the 12" sub woofer of my Z-5500s is doing to my HDDs seing as how the sub is only about 2' way from the rig. The sub is so powerful that my mouse dances around from the vibrations reverberating through my desk.

EDIT...

Holy, did not see the video before I made my post. That is awesome.

Mine's about 4 feet away, I'd be scared to see what happens if it was right beside it!

I edited my post, put the wrong screenshot in the first time, it's fixed now.

Heh.... that looks like my place, but it's even worse now that my young lad doesn't use his Z2300s. Unfortunately his CV D7s put out even more bass....... :) :(

(Uncles / Godparents are supposed to give loud gifts right???? :) ).
