in a PC you can re-mount the hard disk with grommets or hang it with hair bungees and zip ties and eliminate most of the HD noise by isolating the HD from the chassis (done that often with recording studio computers). I haven't cracked open my 622 [yet] to look for a way to quiet the hard drive. it's not that loud frankly, except during bootup when it's like a jet airplane.

You need to be careful about thermally insulating the hard drive from the case in some of these smaller machines. Without a metal-metal connection, the cooling can be much less effective.
