I found these sound pads made by Akasa that you put inside the case to dampen sound. I was just wondering if anyone has ever tried these and knows if they work or not? My HTPC is really loud with fan noise, something I'd love to fix.. Louder than my projector!

Yes, I do use them and they do help, somewhat. Don't expect miracles, it is much more important to reduce the source of the noise by using quiet fans in the first place. I would say that it is the last step in trying to reduce sound levels.


Also, I would think that the use of these reduce airflow through the cabinet somewhat, so temperatures increase a little.
