The starting point of the noise in all cases, a specific form of movement or vibration, which brings the air to vibrate, but also transmitted via the hardware itself and simultaneously elsewhere in turn stimulates air. Fan rotation for example, leads to vibrations that are transmitted to the PC cover over the frame and the air, this thought-resonate, so it also becomes a source of noise.
This demonstrates a fundamental phenomenon of the limitations of other noise reduction measures. You usually use only one side of the problem - the vibration transmission through direct contact - and hide the transfer via air. Insulating mats contribute to noise reduction at first by their very own weight. Because they increase the mass of the outer housing parts, which is why at constant energy - the panels are not so strong to vibrate - so vibration source.
But insulating mats go further by preventing them as well, that air vibrations react upon the body. This superbly soft material absorbs incoming sound waves and thus prevents them can bring to vibrate the outer walls, while reducing rapidly the reflected sound.
As a result, they achieve effect via two methods and are thus inherently more effective than traditional measures. This makes them the ideal way for noise reduction and the best way to reduce the noise level of the PC.
The insulating mats are high quality products from German production and are also used for cabin construction. Your soundproofing is therefore proven and desires as well in industrial solutions. They are made of soft polyurethane ester acoustic foam, which was provided at the top with a finely perforated leatherette. Thus, the mats are visually appealing, dirt-resistant and can be washed off. The underside is self-adhesive.
Especially effective is the sound absorption in the frequency range 1800-3500 Hz. Between 1,200 and 6,000 Hz over 40 percent of the sound are nevertheless still swallowed and at 400 Hz least ten percent. With these properties, a wide range is covered. Especially the annoying high frequency noise of many fans is particularly effective reduced. Lower frequencies such as droning noises are indeed less absorbed by the material itself, but also minimized by its own weight.
This set is designed for the Corsair Carbide Air 540 and includes 14 insulation mats. The damping set can also be installed without any special knowledge. This is ensured precisely tailored and labeled insulation mats and precise installation instructions. This is specially designed for the requirements of the case and explains step by step the installation, gives practical tips and explains the possibilities and insulation options.
The number of mats is supplied sufficient to dampen the entire housing may - even the fan slots. As a result, you have the choice of how much insulation you obstruct, in order to achieve an individual optimum of cooling and Laustärkereduzierung.
For more information about the material specifications of the insulation material can be obtained from the datasheet. Note: Some pictures show the to be insulated housing, which is not included.
