Each 5Ux200mm heatsink module is rated at 0.28 C/W. I will update the info page. Hifi2000 is in the process of getting independent testing done, when I have the results I'll publish them here.

Is the listed 165mm internal height for the 4U case above the 10x10 grid baseplate or total? The baseplate looks to be about 10 mm deep, is this correct? I'm playing with parts to see what I can stuff inside once my cases get here.

Does the shipment in transit include more 4U and 2U handles? I would like them, but want my amps to look alike, and I'm guessing others are waiting to see what becomes available, too.

Thanks for doing this, Jason.

Hi Bob,

Correct - about 10mm. The heatsink brackets are ~1.5mm and the base when installed is ~8mm, comprised in itself of a floor of ~1.5mm and flange edge of ~6.5mm.

So the heatsink is 165mm, and you have 155mm left to play with if you mount the base with the perforated holes towards the top of the chassis. If you mount the base with the holes towards the bottom of the chassis, you get another ~6.5mm.

There are more 4U handles on the way however there are 4U and 2U handles in stock right now.

Any more questions please ask. I know more about the interior dimensions of those chassis than I care to admit! More diagrams will be forthcoming, right now I'm taking a bit of a break while things are in transit to get other things done.

Thanks, Jason. I guess my tall caps will go in a 5U project.

I saw 1 4U pair handle pair in stock, and I am building 2 x 4u cases, along with a couple of 2U projects I didn't want to get stuck with an odd man out.

Gotcha! Ok I see the problem... I have activated pre-ordering for the 4U handles now then so if you want 2 to pre-order instead of the 1 that was left in stock you can do that now

As for the caps, perhaps you could either use our PSU board and mount it to the back of the front panel, or put a riser on the back of the front panel and use your own PSU board, or use a riser internally somehow... but yes the 5U is a lot more space to play with!

Would it be possible to give me the interior dimensions for the 2U Pesante?

Thanks.

Ah, I see we are missing some of the internal measurements. I'll find that out for you and update all our listings so every one has the internal dimensions in there (if they exist, they are on the product information page).

they are
internal width 360mm, internal height 80mm

also possible to find other specs by looking at 'spare parts'

UPS...that was for the dissipante with heatsinks

Pesante(no heatsink), internal width is 430mm, height is 80mm

I suppose internal height is the real important one to know

What would be the best way to install a 3mm LED through the front panel? I have access to a drill press but I'm not sure how to secure the LED.
