A killer for me in these kinds of cases is the side fans. Makes it awkward to 
fit into any furniture without having to leave a gap at the side for 
ventilation. A second issue is that with a side fan, a lot of the noise comes 
forward. A rear fan pumps the noise as well as the heat out the back of the cabinet.
