Default Is there effective soundproofing foam out there?

I was looking into silent cases by Lian Li, but I really do want an acrylic side window and a fairly flashy system, without the hassle of lots of noise.

Is there soundproofing foam out there, and would it be effective in a case with 3-4 80mm case fans?

There is a 'sound-proofing' foam, but it's expensive, messy and hard to control. Search for it on Home Depots site. I think that's where I saw it last. If you can't find it there, do a search on some Music Stores.

If the soundproof foam is so inefficient, is there a better way? Should I buy heat-activated fans to lessen the amount of fans being used and their respective speed/noise?
