List of options trading blocs in international trade
Information seems to be a bit thin on the ground on these, or I just can't seem to be able to find the right keywords to go with the search button. BTW, after moving the drives to older chipset on Linux and trying the latest hdparm, I could set the APM to 255 (disabled), but of course it does not survive cold boot. I have active cooling on my hard drives so this might have been an option for me, although generally it is advised against due to rising of the temperature of the drives when the heads don't park.
Summary: do NOT buy new 1TB platter seagate 3TB drives ( ST3000DM001 ) for quiet usage.
