Quiet enclosure? For Macbook Pro 16"

I was leaning towards the Razer enclosures, but I've read about how the fans always stay on and are annoying. Due to recording audio, I need the room to be very quiet, as much as possible. Are other enclosures better fan-wise? Or do I need to mod a Razer?

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

@madmax00178, Long Thunderbolt 3 cable (2m) and fan swap is the way to go. Other than the enclosure and PSU fans, you'd likely have to manage the cooling fans of the installed graphics card too.
