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
as a skin?  Since you are probably sitting it on a flat surface,
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
into it)
