There is a difference between the original MDD case and the FW800 versions.
The many holes by the fan and elsewhere are missing in the later years. Is this a production change to save money? or was this indeed a better cooling system?

It may have been a noise issue. The early MDDs were the source of numerous complaints from musicians because the PSU fans were too loud. Maybe removing the holes made it possible to run the fans a bit quicker....
