There have always been more than a few ways to quiet down
noisy computers. Some techniques involve using advanced cooling devices, or
lower powered processors which do not generate as much heat. But what do you
do if you have an old computer you can't modify?
After all, sound absorbing inserts inside the chassis will only go so far - exhaust
ports are notorious for leaking higher levels of noise.
Danish company by the name of Plasmic have one possible solution called
the "Cocoon." The Cocoon as its' name imparts, is a sound proof cabinet that you
place a standard computer into. Acoustic baffles, and other engineering on the
inside keep noise down, yet still maintain the all necessary cooling factor. Noise
dampening sits at 90% according to the manufacturer.
