I sound deadened my computer with stuff called "peal and seel." You can find it in the roofing section of your local hardware store. It's asphalt backed aluminum that acts as a sound deadener for homes. Car audio enthusiasts use it as a cheap alternative to dynamat. I notice a big decrease is sound when I was using air cooling. Make sure you have good ventilation as it will insulate your case slighty.

well there's a link there to a review and installation guide. basically you just cut it to size and stick it on your case panels. Really all it will do is stifin up your case so there are less vibrations, and thus it is quieter. It works on the same principle as dynamat for your car.

there are several other stores that sell a similar material for much less. I know you can get it from these stores:
svc.com
newegg.com
xoxide.com
and maybe from:
zipzoomfly.com
performance-pcs.com

I'm not sure if one brand is any better than another. I have heard people complain that their temps went up after they isntalled it, so it's really up to you. do you want a quiet pc that is a couple degrees warmer?

you don't want to use an asphalt based sound deadening material because asphalt absorbs heat and then radiates it back. you would be much better to use a nylon or foam based sound deadening material in your computer. yes, the asphalt based solutions work great for cars and homes, but there temperature isn't so critical. (and believe you me, dynamat works great in your car!)

That's why I told him he would need good ventilation, that it would insulate his case. I know about dynamat, my whole truck is done in extreme. I gain 4db when I was into Bass competitions.

ohh 4db is an excellent gain! I have my car done in a mixture of extreme and regular. the front doors, rear deck and the trunk. I didn't really have to put much on bc my car came from the factory w/ most surfaces already had some. Thank you Chrysler!

I was extremely happy with 4db. I metered a 137db at the dash on a termlab meter before dynamat, and hit a 141db afterwards. Great stuff.
