Default Noise reduction inside PC

Hi fellas

i just finished putting my pc case back together, i had it of to investigate where the noise of my pc was coming from. I have come to the conclusion (after blowing all dust out of inside) that its the PSU.

So at the minute i dont have the funds, unless extremely cheap, to change PSU's to a extremly quieter.

I was thinking on adding some padding to the inside of the case to see if this helps. What do u guys think of that? Also where in the UK could i pick some up?

And one more thinng, would i need to add maybe a fan or two inside to keep it cool while as the padding may up the heat.

Any advice on making it quiter or info on what i have mentioned above would be great

Many Thanks

I found these
Acousti AcoustiPack Acoustic Foam Blocks [] Case Mods=
Acousti AcoustiPack Multi-Layered Material Kit - Lite [] Case Mods=
Acousti AcoustiPack Multi-Layered Material Kit - Ultimate [] Case Mods=

and i would recommend adding a few fans whether you add the padding or not
