Anyone have advice on computer enclosures? I figure that is the best way, next to putting the cpu in another room, to silence mine. I suppose I could build one as well, but I don't know what they look like exactly. Like how airflow works in them or where the cables feed out to.

computer enclosures when built properly can stop a lot of noise and bring the noise levels down heaps,
http://mtrs.org/MTRS/noisecontrol.html melchoir's research assignment shows this very well, a basic enclosure has a hole in the bottom with a non-direct airflow path for the intake and a hole in the back for cables (non direct as well) and for ventilation, u need to make sure the air (therefore also the noise) doesn't come straight out of the case but has a few twists and turns to go through 1st, so that the noise get's attenuated on the way out as well :)

Hey everyone. First time poster.

Thanks for the link to the article. A good read. I many have to try my hand at building an enclosure one of these days. Looks like fun.
