Who We Recommend
Building a silent computer is often a difficult goal for enthusiasts and power users to achieve, especially if the computer needs to also be fast and cool. The SF01 is a package of two foam pads designed to help absorb noise with minimal impact inside a computer chassis. Each pad has large surface area and high density 4mm thick foam to provide good noise reduction and flexible integration choices.

May or may not meet your expectations01-23-2015

Purchased this for a water cooled PC housed in a Corsair 750D with minimal expectations. Received and installed this on my side panels with little to no difference in sound. That being said my system is already extremely quiet with the loudest component being the water pump which isn''t even all that audible to begin with. I was hoping that by adding this foam that it would block maybe half the sound of the water pump but it did not. So my take on this is if you have a ventilated case and have no rattles or anything you won''t benefit from this foam.

But good luck trying to remove it. It crumbles into pieces and leaves glue underneath. A little work to take off but still a great absorber of sound/moving objects.
Good pick for sound reduction and budget07-24-2011

This foam is not heavyweight, and as such not the best to be used for case rattle issues. It is designed to minimize sound reflection instead. The two 15x21" pads are about 3/16" thick, easily bendable, and the sticky is quite strong and instantly sticks semi-permanently. Came in a huge box, they did not fold the foam. This is enough to cover the two outside panels of a full tower, or even more W/smaller units. If you want to detail almost the entire case, get two if you have full- or mid-tower; or if you want to cover the mobo backplate/tray too. My last kit was ThermalTake, and the foam came loose after a day or two when it was coverning even the slightest bends, like 20* angles. I would rather have problems with the foam sticking too easily than coming loose. A few times the foam stuck to my fingers and tore all the sticky off in a couple of small places, but this was not a problem in the big picture. Another review said you can take it back off and reapply, not my experience, temperature may play a factor (it was a little hot, 80+*F). If you want to reduse case rattle, I suggest you either go with one of those more expensive kits or put the foam between the offending rattling peices. My computers are quite quiet. Tip: when you have an air bubble, just pop it with a screwdriver corner or knife. Also, don''t put foam in the way of the sliding panel area. Measure the slide area first and stay >1/16" away from it. May not be flame-retardant.
No logos on this stuff05-01-2011
Reviewer: James (6)
I attempted to mostly silence a new case so I can''t really say how this individual piece effected the overall picture, but the case ended up being fairly inaudible. I bought this stuff as opposed to the Frozen CPU brand (or other available) of the same because it didn''t look as though this foam had any logos on it. I was correct in this assumption. So, if you want what seems to be reasonable sound dampening foam sans ugly logos, get some of this stuff.
