I remember reading an article on it but the one they recommended whas like 80.00 and thats a bit pricey for my blood. Any advice would be great, the main thing I am battling is vibrations as I use watercooling and it is fairly quiet as is. TIA.

I hear it's AcoustiPak.

I run PaxMate because I installed it before I began studying this site.

It's OK, but not recommended here.

can you not isolate the (i assume) pump somehow rather than the whole case. surely ther must be one culprit more than others?

The pump is actually very quiet, the main noise is the vibration coming from the 120mm fans on the rad and the drives.

suspend them. if vibes are the source of the noise, no amount of acoustic damping will do a thing. got to stop the vibes from getting into the case.
