I need to fit out a friend's eATX rig with the best acoustical dampening material, any recommendations? I've been searching but can't make sense of all the anti-sound substrates.

AcoustiPack seems to be a top brand, however, keep in mind: The first step in making a PC silent is to either remove loud parts, or replace them with quieter parts. So if you're working with a loud PC, acoustic foam isn't going to help a whole lot.

Yup, I'm already switching out the loud culprits. He's just got so many friggin fans in this big honkin' Azza case that some side, top and bottom foam will really cut down on the whizz, whirl and hum. Thanks for the recommendation.
