Noise Cancellation

Hey guys! I'm looking for some quick and easy ways to reduce my case's noise. Any home made solution or cheap kits? Thanks!

my case is an Aspire X-Cruiser Btw

You can add insulation to the inside walls to absorb sound and you can isolate vibration from fans and harddrives. Also I think if you build a box that you put over your fans with insulation inside so the sound can't get right out, it will lower air flow slightly but make it much quieter. This is a small diagram.

There you go.

Your best bet is to get quieter fans however.

There are kits for insulation type noise dampening, but not for muffler type boxes as far as I know, HERE is the article I originally saw about the mufflers. His are ugly and I think they would be better if he had put a baffle in like I suggested.

Those might help with vibration noise, but I have no experience with them, and I think most people are more concerned with performance than noise.

Quiet Fans (Yate Loons) and Foam are keys to having a quiet case.

Also watercooling sometimes helps!
