How about just getting a Deneb?

It would be cheaper, as fast and offer more flexible options for other addons than what you've suggested.

Deneb has Kickflash equivalent built in
It's Zorro III and probably as fast as a PowerFlyer/FastATA with a cheap USB2SATA adapter
You can use ultracheap USBKey to transfer data instead of a CF card

With Poseidon in Flash you can boot from the SATA hard drive (although deneb would never be as fast as SCSI on the CSPPC!)

To lower the noise I would consider ditching both your current hard drives, getting an IDE->UltraSCSI AEC-7720UW adapter from ACard (you can get them for about $40 on ebay) and using a cheap 5400RPM 120Gig PATA hard drive at upto 40MB/s with the CSPPC SCSI

You need to make sure you dont have your DVDRW connected via CSPPC SCSI or it will kill your transfer rates. Use the onboard IDE instead.
