There really isn't any good off the shelf solution. You will peobably have to do it yourself. I spent a while looking before I decided to make my own, and they seem to turn out alright.

Me too.
The only cabinets with heatsinks along the side that I found was from Monacor. However the price starts at app. $310.00 and I not sure that these heatsink are big enough for the Zen.

Here in Italy there is a source for such enclosures, the "pesante dissipante" series from Hifi200 (www.hifi200.it), but I think that forwarding expenses would be a little high

But of course you can take a look...

Cheers

Thats the case you can buy from Monacor or Fischer Elektronik.
I bought it from Schuro .
Cost 140 but I cant remember the C/W-value.
Will look it up later.

Monacor

I like it too (well, I bought it) but still 140 is a lot money.
For lets say 100 you can get the nicest and biggest heatsinks.
You just have to do the rest of the case...
Im not good at making chassis but Id never buy a finished case again.
Its just not the same looking at some manufactured case or a complete DIY one.
Take a look at the gallery at Passlabs and youll know what I mean.
