Hey guys. Building a middle atlantic rack and looking to add a fan to it. I love the look of middle atlantic with the temperature read out but it's so expensive. I'm looking for something a little cheaper. Anyone used the pro cool ones on eBay? Or even the Pyle one? I know Pyle is not a good man. Would those be really loud? I have my rack next to the TV. So I don't want anything that's noisy.

What equipment is installed in your rack that you require fans? Or would your setup have no airflow?

I have four power amps, pre-pro, dish receiver, bluray, HDDVD and tvss installed in the rack without fans and do not require them.

I have the slim rack with the dark cherry enclosure. So there is no air flow at all.

Do you have enough room in the rack to install the vented plates on top and bottom of rack? This would provide convective cooling!
