Yup. Even putting it in a case is dubious as a means
of reducing noise.
Can't you just locate it someplace else? E.g., so there is
not a hard surface behind it to reflect sound back at you?
Ah, it ha a plastic skin. I was imagining a steel box
that you could slide into a plywood "envelope". :-(
Sure would be nice if server makers paid *some*
attention to reducing noise levels. But, given noise
vs. reliability, I'd err on the side of reliability
