And yes it does work amazingly well. Previously in a quiet room I could just hear the hard drive humming but now you can only hear it if you are within two feet of the case. With any music playing it is now totally silent. I think this is a worthwhile upgrade for any user particularly if you have upgraded to a large hard drive.
Mine came with it already installed, and I have to say the Hard disk was very quiet. The CD drive was noisier.
