It depends on the room itself and how reflective it is... if the other walls have bookcases, drapes, a bed, carpets, etc... then treating the 'bounce' wall does have some significant benefits. I assume he was getting some echo from a rear bounce and the foam helped it (although I have no idea).


My office is a perfect square (horrible) and all hard surfaces in every direction - but since it's a leased office I can't really do foam... so I bought 8 2'x4'x2" absorbers and spaced them around the room. Not only does my PC audio sound great, but I no longer hear my voice echo when I'm on the phone or having a discussion with a co-worker.


I used these: Acoustimac DMD242



Not as inexpensive as tacking foam squares for sure, but much easier to move to my next office.


I foamed a previous build as well... but that's a waste of time and effort IMO. However, there's a great solution for that... turn up the volume until it isn't audible any longer.

I did line the backdoor & around the window, which cut down audible pump noise at least... n may have reduced some of the noise I can hear from my flex bay radiator? it blows into my case though, so idk.

it's some hard core stuff. Better stick it on right the first time [IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/tongue.gif[/IMG]

Not bad! I see you have acoustic foam, do you actually notice improvement from it? For the cost of it, i thought it was only beneficial if you have alot of it in the entire room.

Non the less, looks clean!

I always remove HDD cages , since they are airflow killers . I just put my HDD in Alpenföhn Alptunnel or scythe himuro and hide it under PSU cover , or 5,25 slots .No screws just cartboard / foam /rubber under the HDD box.

looniam i was thinking drilling two small holes to screw in the side or bottom of the HD on the side or frame of the case. maybe even back mobo tray, if it has any air flow.

Maybe if you use high quality velcro and your case is in a safe place where nothing can bump it, maybe.

Still wouldn't recommend it tho, I'd always recommend securely mounting your HDD's, preferably with vibration damping.

I'd suggest that if you don't want to bother with HDD cages, you're probably better off not installing HDD's in your case at all. You can just place your HDD in a raidbox or a NAS(Doesn't have to be expensive, you can build one out of an older pc.)
