if u use it right it wont affect cooling. its to stop vibration, so as long as nothing rattling aroud, old mouse mats will do the job just fine.

buy some of those cheapo green cloth ones, and butcher them with scissors and screws!!

:devil: :devil:

PaxMate didn't work for me
Didn't stop noise and didn't affect cooling.

Just in case my post was deleted accidently, LOL. If you have good airflow through your case(personally, I like 100 cfm for a K7 machine) the vents in the left hand case cover should be taped shut. Most folks swear by Dynamat, it's expensive and smells a bit yucky before it's "broken in." I don't know if it's available in the UK, or if it has a different trade name there.

I think dynamat is available but its a lot mroe expensive than paxmate and i was wondering whether theree is that much of a difference between the two
