i thought installing was supposed to make it less noisy?

i went ahead and bit the bullet and bought a hdd.  i installed gow3 and started playing, and there's no change.  i have dead island installed to a flash drive and when i play it, the system is utterly quiet.  i don't understand, i'm starting to get really ticked because i got the hdd just to install the games just to reduce the noise.

It does reduce the noise, it also reduces drive wear and tear.
A few other people have posted similar things regarding Gears 3, so perhaps its something to do with that?. Have you tried installing a different game to see if it is the same?.

GOW3 spins a while longer than the older disc check schemes. It should spin down after a few minutes.
