Will the 24.4.2AI fit in road cases for the 24.4.2? I haven't seen this addressed in the forum.
Specifically Gator's last release of the 24.4.2 case, but any general observances of differences in case fit would be helpful at least.

Yes. Same chassis as the original.

Thanks Matthew. The rep I bought the case from said it was not compatible with the AI. I really hope he's wrong. I was under the same impression about the chassis.

I've discovered why the case (Gator G-Tour PRE 242 DH) was not compatible with the AI.

The plywood cutout that rests against the bottom center of the back side of the desk (to keep the desk from sliding into the doghouse) prevents the desk from seating properly against the doghouse. One of the removable card's handholds keep it from sliding to where it should sit in the case. The plywood also blocks the S/PDIF jack, the ethernet jack, and a tiny bit of one of the Fire Wire 800 jacks.

Not a huge deal. Something to mark where to cut and a coping saw and you can cut out just enough of the plywood to expose the jacks and the handhold.

I also STRONGLY recommend cutting out about a 12" section of the foam beneath the desk from front to back to allow the bottom of the desk to cool. I cut the foam all the way through, peeled that section out, and lightly sprayed adhesive on some thin foam panels from the craft section of Wal-Mart to re-cover that section. The foam was less than $1 for enough to cover what I cut out.

EDIT!! Yet more foam to cut away... I just realized there were fans in the AI's and new ventilation holes. I'll now additionally be cutting away part of the foam on the sides to allow the fans to move all the air they were designed to move.
