Gear Nut


Greetings slutz. I finally have my 4 UAD cards and need to move them to a bigger house. I keep looking at those damn avid magma chasis on ebay and cannot get up the confidence to buy one for fear that I'd be buying the wrong thing.
So what is the deal with those? The prices are all over the place for what seems to be the same thing from the same sellers.

Any advice yall could give me to help reduce my chances of fn up would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks all..

I have 3 x UAD-1's in a magma 4 along with 4 x SATA Hds connected to a SATA PCI adapter card (in the 4th PCI slot) ... the front fan in the magma was VERY noisey, I just disconnected it ... works fine ... doesn't get too hot ... The magma chassis cost £700 UK new ... ITS ALL GOOD ... does improve performance of UAD-1's
