    How to dampen the sound inside the case.

    Is there anykind of dampening material that will NOT absorb heat, and keep the PC cool, while lowering sound levels by alot. I need some of that. How would I install this stuff?

    WORKS GREAT! Only $1/sq ft, the cheapest on the market. This stuff is awesome. It absorbs very little heat, maybe increasing closed case temperature by 1 degree C.
