2TB mech HDD for gaming

I'm after a new 2TB mechanical for storage/gaming with the following:

no head parking (absolute dealbreaker - used to game on a WD green that kept freezing every few minutes)

7200 rpm spin

quiet

I was looking at the 7200 version of the Western Digital Blue, but it's hard to find these days. The new Barracuda (M006, I think) also caught my eye, but I need to know whether or not it has the head parking - does anybody on here know?

Many thanks,

9I.
