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
any day!
