A good case for a Modern DAW
This review is from: iStarUSA D313SEMATX-DE1RD-RD Aluminum / Steel 3U Rackmount Compact Trayless Server Case - Red Bezel 1 External 5.25" Drive Bays
Pros: decent space for a shallow depth rack, looks good, does what I needed for a gigabyte Micro ATX board, i7 3770s chip, and a couple SSDs and hot swappable 3.5in back up drive. 15in depth is perfect for a rack mountable able digital audio workstation. Red face place is stylish.
Cons: Its a little tight so you have to plan the build out or you'll be removing the drive cages a few times to get all the components in. No vents in top/sides/bottom, so airflow is limited. I'm using a fanless power supply and it really wants to vent out the top. I'm considering mounting the whole thing upside down but not sure how my CPU cooler will do in that config.
Other Thoughts: It's hard to find a nice looking, 3U 15in deep, rackmount DAW so I built one. So far so good.
