Heh, that happened to me too. That's how noise is: get rid of one noise
and then you can hear something else that it was masking.

My drive noise isn't too bad, mostly a little seek noise from the main
drive. My audio drive is mounted in a cheap 3.5-to-5.25" adapter frame
that attaches to the chassis with rubber grommets; I don't hear that one
as much.  But they're different makes and models of drive, so I don't know
how much that has to do with it.
