honestly you could go to a store such as circuit city or bestbuy and go to the car audio section and by this stuff called Dynomat... it very thin stuff but it is THE best sound dampening on the market...its expensive but it wont take up all the space like that foam crap u see on the net... you could get the door panel kit for like $20 or so and i would think that would be enough,if not buy another, they also have a large roll for like $50 or so....

Also, that matting can also increase temperatures a bit because its going to remove a lot of metal surface area that might normally absorb a little bit of heat. It might affect things 1-2C env., nothing huge but just be prepared going in.

it will be noticable,it should be a bit quieter when u couver most af the metal in your case, and if/when u do this remove your case fans and cut little strips and seat them between the fan and the metal case,it will help a little,and as for the jet sound,its probably your fans running at full speed,maybe try turning the speeds down a little on them if possible

A lot of the sound that fans create isn't the actual airflow, but the vibration against the case and the fan itself. Using rubber mounting screws will help a lot, but I strongly suggest you buying a cheap fan controller. The only time you need your fans on 100% is under HEAVY load. If you bought something like this, you could turn them way down when internet browsing or watching a movie...
