5 out of 5 eggsIt's foam

Pros: Just what I wanted.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It's to line the insides of an old pair of Radio Shack Minimus 7 speakers. Along with a better crossover filter, I expect to hear some great sound out of these little wonders.

The foam arrived in a ginormous box. Made me laugh. It could have been rolled up...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat material.

Pros: Easy to work with, fairly thin compared to some others, but really cuts down noise.

Cons: Not much, just wish there was a little more to it, to completely cover a large case - both sides, top and bottom.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat way to finish off an already silent case

Pros: + Decent thickness (can be stacked if needed)
+ Very flexible and easy to handle
+ Knocked at few db off my build, from 33 to ~30db. And the top db, is around 45, which is great for me.
+ Can be used to seal the many nook and crannies that cases have. Like seams or punch holes for cable management and what not. If you want to make a positive pressure case, this can definitely be useful to avoid 'leaks' and make it easier to achieve it.

Cons: - Although the 'foam' itself is very easy to handle, the glue is very, very strong. Stronger than the foam's resistance/durability.

Other Thoughts: * Someone pointed out that there was a very bizarre smell coming from the foam. I too noticed this, but I simply left the foam out of it's package for a night with a fan running. Barely noticeable the next day, and I think at this point it's entirely gone.

* Be very mindful when applying it, as I mentioned in the cons, the glue is very strong, so it's easy for it to stick at an undesired location. If you are extremely careful you can unstick/try again. But be sure to measure properly and allow for some wiggle room, befcause it will be definitely hard to do 'perfect fit' in a tight spot, without having the strip stick to a surface as you are attempting to place it.

1 out of 5 eggsNope.

Pros: A good amount of material.

Cons: My computer fans are still noisy.

Other Thoughts: I've tried better fans, a watercooler for the processor, now sound dampening foam, I'm starting to think nothing will make my computer quieter...

5 out of 5 eggsDoes its job very well for the price

Pros: Considering it only costs $16, this foam suppresses noise exceptionally well when. This might be because I put it on almost everything in my case that was not a hole for ventilation or a part of a mounting apparatus(not in the interior of the bays).

Also, I covered a perforated mesh of the 5.25'' drive bay on the front of my case. However, I also added two very quiet fans with great CFM/noise(Enermax T.B. Silence). Lastly, my case was already somewhat quiet, but I purchased this because my graphics card has coil whine. Since it's toward the center of the case, the foam should serve to absorb its noise better than it would for case fans, which allow much of their sound to escape directly out of the case.

There was more than enough foam to cover absolutely all surfaces(not ventilation holes) of the interior of my mid-tower case, and even enough left to double up at least a quarter of it(which I did not do, since it would be a bit of a waste for my computer). For a full-tower case, there is still definitely enough to cover all or most of the interior.

Note that this is very probably not a sole solution to case noise.

Cons: None, really.

4 out of 5 eggsJust some "facts"

Pros: light weight, easy to use/cut.

Cons: Don't expect much, but maybe a little is all you need.

Other Thoughts: Real world test in a DVR. DVR at 3ft=58db. Installed on top lid, and much of the bottom and side as possible at 3ft=56db. Added other sheet to side of cabinet near fan at 3ft= 55db.

I was able to get a 3db reduction in noise at 3ft. Seems that's about the best you'll get.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works for covering fan holes.

Pros: At $16 the price point is a bit high and i didn't need all that i got. I would have taken a smaller amount if it were available. I used this to plug up all the un-used fan holes. I don't know what it did for total sound dampening but at least i know it worked for the 2 side panel fans. I don't see a need for side panel fans but with that gap dust get in and that's where the noise will come out of. I have all noctura fans so i never hear them but if you have semi-noisy fans i'm sure this quiets it down.

Cons: Wish i could have bought have the product for half the price. I have lots of un-used foam now,

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: You get a lot of it for the money, easy to apply, no offensive odor that I could detect, it works.

I was not really sure if I was going to notice a difference with this, but I was pleasantly surprised. It does make a difference I can hear (or not hear) on my case (which has thin metal, as so many do now).

Cons: Once it is stuck, it's not going to be moved. The foam is not very strong physically, so if you try to peel it off, the foam will tear, leaving a thin layer still glued to whatever you attached it to. It is easy to trap air underneath-- I did like another reviewer suggested and used a needle to let the air out.

Other Thoughts: This is not going to make a loud PC quiet, but there is no silver bullet for building a quiet PC or quieting a loud one (unless the noise source is one specific thing you can replace). I chose the 3 case and 1 cpu heat sink fans for their noise to effective flow ratio, put the fans on silicone mounts, chose a case without a top panel vent (which would direct the noise right at me) and with a bottom mount power supply to keep the noisy PSU fan cool and slow, used Speedfan to get the case fan RPM as low as possible and still cool well, replaced my video card's noisy stock fan with an aftermarket (Arctic Twin Turbo II) cooler that cools far better AND is nearly inaudible even at full speed, and then finally added this foam to the side panels and top panel inside the case. I am happy with the results-- my PC is nearly inaudible while gaming, and even running Prime95 in place FFT and Furmark burn in test at the same time, it's still not obtrusively loud at all: My SPL meter gives a result of 51 dB(A) with the meter resting on the back of the case, with the microphone pointed towards the rear (I run the stress tests for 10 minutes to make sure its good and warm before I take the reading). If I hold the meter where my head usually is while I use the PC, the meter (which does down to 50 dB) doesn't even register a noise with the PC under full GPU and CPU load. This is not one of those high-dollar quiet PC cases; this is a $35 case I am using (although if I had known from the start I was going to add so many dust filters and noise reduction things, I might have just bought one of those premium quiet cases that already has all the stuff I added).
