I am also getting 4 of those yes from here for one of the rads. I figered I already had 4 ultras so whay not use them up. With a little sound deadening material in the case maybe the noise won't be as bad?

I don't know of any PC "sound absorption" that absorbs a broad enough spectrum to clean up noisy fans - I dunno, fans don't bug me personally so I'd just not worry about it lol.

This is just in the making it isn't built yet. As I get parts for it I get them like today when the doorbell just rang. The UPS guy finally caught me. I was waiting since Friday for it to!
