noisey case - sponges?

Has anyone tried this? Does it really work?

I have 4 80mm silent case fans..but with 4 in there..it aint really silent.
Gona replace the 2 intake with a 140mm silent fan later..

I read somewhere that If you line the inside of your case with fiberglass or sponges (cheeper) then it would reduce noise levels cuz the sponges would absorb sound waves..

Any ideas?

Im thinking this would hurt case temps maybe??

watch your temps after you do it. Any sound dampening will act as an insulator to some extent. If they are rising too much you may have to remove some.
