Marcin and friends, in terms of vibration control, I don't know if you have already tested, but probably yes. If not, I suggest that you try to use cork under your computers and its power supplies (three individual pieces dividing the weight evenly). It's amazing what these three "feets" do with the result of the sound. Here, I plan to completely coat the inside of the computer with a thin layer of cork. I really recommend this test.
One tip: if the computer and/or the PSU have original feet, don't put the cork under your feet, but directly under the chassis, on the metal part. Avoid the original feet. You'll be amazed with how natural and rich it sounds.
