    Here is a link to an almost silent case, with some nice pictures.

    Anyone going to make one? ;)

    Mark: I'm heavily modding my Aopen case at the moment. But it's not going to be filled with expandable foam!

    I've Dynamatted the sides and top, which stops them from buzzing. Next I'm going for a QuietPC PSU, and then new CPU heatsink and fan, northbridge heatsink, round IDE and FDD cables, GPU heatsink, HDD cooler case, and probably a bit more Dynamat!

    Should be very quiet when it's finsihed, cost me around £200 in total I think. Worth it just as a project though, great fun so far!

    Has anyone used either the QuietPC HDD Quiet Drive casing or the cool aluminium cooler on Overclockers.co.uk? I'm looking at the Overclockers one.

    Cheers

    I use several of the QuietPC drive enclosures. As long as you don't put too big a drive in them they work very well. About 40Mb is the max, but check drive specs first. I haven't tried the overclockers one.

    think you meant 40Gb Nic.

    Hmm thats a pain though as I've just sourced a 200Gb maxtor from a friend to perform jukebox duties and was going to rely on a Quiet drive for noise dampening.
