The egg crates are there to stop the echo in the room. If you scroll down the comments, I have a better explanation and photos.
Very true. They are basic cheap cables, but they are only used for standard, everyday sound. I also have an M-audio sound card that runs through (semi) shielded cables into my Naim Audio set up for music.
Thanks, that was essential!
Yes, I'll try to share the TinkerCad file later. I wasn't aware that was possible before.
This works exceptionally well at keeping the electronics cool and totally free of dust. As I mentioned in a previous reply, I've been using the drawer for nearly a year now and there is barely a speck of dust inside the box. And the CPU never gets to anywhere near a dangerous temperature, and the fans are as close to silent as I can imagine.
The hard drives have been fine for nearly a year so far. Its not like I open and close it every day (although I did at first, just to look at it!). The drawer is closed most of the time and if I ever need to swap a drive, the computer is turned off.
