    I'm putting together a system for a friend and I am using David French's budget DAW as a model (see below). At Davis's suggestion I am asking if there is another case that folks would recommend that might work better than the Nexus Breeze in terms of both cooling and noise. I am looking to spend no more than the cost of the nexus if possible. My total budget is around $800.

    Thank you,

    BTW, I've since upgraded to a Plextor 740A DVDR/W.

    Antec P180, remove upper drive cage if you have older TC powercore cards.

    Also, install all drives on botoom drive cage.
