Antec fans aren't known for their silence among purists. Look to Noctua, Scythe and anything that can be undervolted to 5v and still spins. Suspending your hard drive does do a lot, for the simple parts and effort needed, it's very much worth it. My Seagate 750 made some crazy seek noises which are now minimized by the suspension. Get some Stretch Magic from Micheal's craft store, it cost under 5 dollars for a thicker 1.1mm @ some overkill length. It's used for making bead necklaces, so now I have a backup hobby in case blowing up computers ever gets old ;) Keep reading that site you were on, it's a great place to start.
