RockPro64 Case 2x3.5" HDDs and 2x2.5 HDDs
#6
Can't same I'm liking the idea of the fan and heatsink placement I would have liked another fan inline with the SBC, so that it's heatsink is cooled more directly, rather than potentially heating up the stacked 3.5" hard drives above it. I know it doesn't generate much heat idling... but will warm up significantly under load (because it can) and even a few degree increases is a lot over time when it's sustained. 

If I get one, and this is the final design, I'd be looking at putting the largest fans I can either side of the SBC - front and back -  (because can probably only fit 50mm fans at best in that space, else one larger one and vent-holes would be enough) and linking them together and having them temperature controlled by the SBC or via an external bi-metallic temperature switch. Some nice fan grills and dust protector inserts, and it would run nice and cool, even under reasonably heavy sustained workloads...
