Why do we recommend AcoustiFeet? When giving advice regarding quieting your computer, we always recommend working first on the big sources of noise in your computer. The biggest sources are the power supply, the CPU fan, the case fan, the hard drive, and, if applicable, the video card fan. It is always more effective to first eliminate the sources of noise in your computer, rather than first trying to dampen the noise with noise dampening materials such as quiet computer feet.
However, after these issues have been addressed (the big sources of noise have been eliminated), some customers find that their computer is so silent that even the smallest vibration that is left becomes a source of "noise" they want to eliminate. Acoustifeet quiet computer feet are an extremely inexpensive and effective way to address this slight remaining vibration.
A great deal of PC case feet are solid plastic, or (at best) very hard rubber and therefore do a good job of transmitting unwanted vibrations from inside a PC via the chassis/case into the desk, floor or shelf on which the system sits. When your PC case is in direct contact with the a hard surface, your PC can generate annoying noise elsewhere (secondary noise).
Acoustiproducts has designed a unique set of 4 self-adhesive soft silicone quiet computer feet called AcoustiFeet. AcoustiFeet quiet computer feet are designed to decouple a PC case from the floor or substrate by absorbing vibrational energy, therefore helping minimize noise generation caused by vibrations. AcoustiFeet are a simple and economic solution to combat unwanted vibrational noise. Throw away your plastic computer feet and apply a set of 4 self-adhesive soft silicone case feet. These quiet computer feet are also low-profile (7mm high), so they won't necessarily be seen. The rounded edge is designed specifically to dampen vibration transmission in a number of planes, and for varying case weights.
Acoustifeet quiet computer feet are not just limited to combating PC noise and vibration, they are also useful for Inkjet and Laser Printers, HiFi Separates, TVs, Small Form Factor PCs, Home Theatre PCs, and any number of appliances and enclosures that would benefit from vibration absorption and reduction. Speaker cabinets may also be a useful application for these feet, helping to isolate the speaker cabinet from the surface on which it sits.
These Acoustifeet quiet computer feet are the heavy-duty version of AcoustiFeet which are suitable for most PCs including seriously heavy PCs, including heavier PCs with multiple HDDs, tower-style case servers, and other applications like noisy photocopiers and office equipment etc.
