Ah! Good point! :-(
Is the noise primarily *fan* noise? Or, a noisey disk(s)?
Can you replace the fans with quieter ones, etc.?
What about wrapping some 3/8" veneered plywood around the server

the skin doesn't need much structural integrity. It can
essentially be a "veneer" on the server itself (make the
plywood into a "sleeve" and then just *slide* the server
