Is there such a list somewhere? I wasn't able to easily find one that listed the drives that would work and ranked them by features, speed, and most importantly noise level. All I know is that the Optiarc 7170A that came with my Mac Pro is unacceptably loud. I'm not sure asking Apple to swap it would get me anywhere other then being without a machine for a bit. I probably wouldn't care for the occasional CD/DVD burn or backup, but there's no way I would use it to watch a movie. It reminds me of the 6 fan PC enclosure I replaced. If you know of a list, please post a link. If not, maybe we should just start one stating drive brand, model, fit inside a mac pro, and noise level.
