I assume you need to quiet things down for recording and not just
because it annoys you. If so, #3 above means do your recording away from
the computer. I've got a Behringer mixer and 20' microphone and
instrument cables. It's no problem to hit record and walk over to the
mike. That's the second part of #3.

You could also employ a sound baffle that the noise is placed behind -
not inside as that would cook the poor thing, but just some acoustically
absorptive material (simple as a pillow) in the "path" of the noise to
the microphone.

The first part of #3 would be to locate the computer box out of the
acoustic area where the work is being done. A simple example, even if a
bit radical, would be to put it outside a window with the cables
entering through the small opening - which could also be "sealed" with a
towel or something. The hallway or whatever is outside the room would
work as well, and even a closet which might be considerably cooler than
the working room if it's anything like mine in this cold area and with
poor insulation.

Good luck!
