Best monitoring location is the heat sink of the processor. Measuring
either intake or exhaust air means NOTHING if air flow is restricted.
Air temperature INSIDE the case is a poor second to measuring actual
component temperature, but a giant leap forward from measuring either
intake or exhaust air.
Model railroaders often complain of noise from their trains, and go
through several lengths building the benchwork to minimize the noise.
The track base consists of plywood and homasote, a pressed paper like
material. There are no nails from the track in to the plywood, and in
most cases the homasote is glued to the plywood. This helps quiet the
vibration noise. (Some of us simply use thicker plywood that doesn't
transmit sound like the thinner stuff.)
What about pictures and plans for a shop vac enclosure? They'd seem to
have the same problems of heat and noise.
