    It can be refered to as acoustic noise reduction aswell...
    ahem...

    What is it that's noisy? Try opening your case while your PC is on and holding each moving object at its base (obviously dont hold the fan) and see if it quietens it, then try re-seating all the noisy objects.

    Carpet tiles, 25p per square foot from your local carpet superstore. Double sided carpet tape and you're away.

    I'm not just whistling dixie here, I actually use this in my HTPC and it does reduce noise considerably

    I'd say thats a better idea than getting ripped off.

    no i'm sold on it. think it's a good idea. Another plus is it would certainly kill vibration of components such as water pumps you might mount in the case.

    Buy some quiet fans aswell, the noise proofing stuff doesn't really do much tbh. (Just google some reviews)
