Plasti Dip sound test

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Finished up my Armor Jr.

Sound clips were done with my camera placed on top of the case, same location for both runs.
First 10 seconds GTX 295 at 40% fan speed, second test at 80% fan speed.
The after, all you pretty much here is the fan exhaust.
Even feeling the top of the case you can tell how much vibration has been damped.

Pretty impressive results, you don't realize how much vibration contributes to the overall noise.

It's best to save the files, listen to them at the same system volume.

Enjoy

that's pretty incredible, i was skeptical when i read the other thread, and you sir have proven that it does help.

i wonder if you could put some acoustic foam over top of the plasti dip? then place the camera in the same spot and get a 3rd recording. My problem with noise has been, not being able to find a dense enough material that is cost effective and easy enough to put inside a case... you might have found that material

I just finished painting an old case. I just need to finish some sleeving and I will see if how much the sound decreased.

One note that I should've added.
I added anti vibrations strips to Megahalems between tests.
