First off - do you know what is making the noise? If it is the harddrive, then your only choise will probably be to get a new harddrive. If it is the fan - which is the most likely reason - then you can put a few drops of that 3-1 oil on the fan to help it run smoother - make sure to unplug your computer first. The other reason is that it could be your case. I had an old computer and the case would fuck up and make noise, you just have to figure that one out by yourself.

As for the laptop from parts - I don't think you can, but even if you could I'm sure it would be very very very hard considering the way a laptop is built.

www.svc.com 's sound dampening section.

That should get you started.

Keep in mind as the noise levels drop, the temperature rises.

One in particular: The silencer mats will increase temperature by a few degrees C.

It's pretty hard to build a laptop from spare parts. It'll probably cost more than buying one premade.


The main culprits of noise are:

Case Fans. You can lubricate them and use silencing grommets.

PSU. You can buy a fanless powersupply or a low noise PSU, but it will heat up the rest of your case.

CPU Fan. There are low RPM/silent fans. You can also change the heatsink to a big one (google search fo Thermalright XP-120) and have a low 120mm rpm fan (thus silent) fan to cool very efficiently.

HDD. If it is clicking, then it is dying. You can suspend your harddrive too which will kill vibration.

Case vibration. Sound dampening mats and those silicon sound dampening frames for psu and fans work well.

Be prepared to pay a pretty penny.
