Now that I have beaten my cooling issues into submission it's time to confront the matter of sound deadening.
Not that this machine is hideously noisy, but it seems likely that some sort of sound insulation might be an improvement.
This is the stuff I'm thinking of using...
It is commonly used in various sound control situations ( recording studios and the like) and is fireproof.
Does anyone have any experience with sound deadening their PC?
I've seen the products carried by the likes of CompUSA, but it's absurdly expensive and you get precut panels. Most of what I have seen is merely 1/8-3/16" thick flat foam with an adhesive back.
The eggcrate shape of the pictured foam looks like it would be highly effective in dispersing/trapping sound waves.
