A great deal of PC case feet are solid plastic, or (at best) very hard rubber
and therefore do a good job of transmitting unwanted vibrations from inside a PC
via the chassis/case into the desk, floor or shelf on which the system sits. In
this situation, where the case is in direct contact with the substrate, the PC
can generate annoying noise elsewhere (secondary noise). They have designed a unique set of 4 self-adhesive soft
silicone feet (UK Reg Design Applied), of varying softness (for different case
weights) and in two colors. These case feet are designed to decouple a PC case
from the floor or substrate by absorbing vibrational energy, and therefore
helping to minimize noise generation caused by vibrations.
A little extreme? Well, yes, perhaps: but even with very quietest PCs
it is vibration that becomes the most significant
culprit/contributor to noise generation. So they have developed these case feet
to try and minimize vibrations in our pursuit of 'ultimate noise reduction'.
Multiple Applications! - Antivibration case feet are not just limited to combating PC noise and for
vibration control in their application - they may be useful for Inkjet
and Laser Printers, HiFi Separates,
TVs, Small Form Factor PCs, Home
Theatre PCs, and any number of appliances and enclosures that would
benefit from vibration adsorption and reduction. Speaker cabinets may also be a
useful application for these feet - helping to isolate the speaker cabinet from
the surface on which it sits.
