I think the best course of action is to get the pre-drilled 5U chassis from the store. Look at it as an investment -- because of the universal mounting spec you will need only change the amplifier boards (and maybe transformer) if you want to try a different amp. The PSU and chassis are then genuinely universal, which is nice, as that's where the $$$$ is when building an amp.

I intend on buying 3 of those, one for current Turbo F-5 V-2 build, the other 2 for Turbo F-5 v-3 mono blocks. We'll see how the V-2 goes first!

I honestly had not thought about the fact that the 5U was a universal chassis and really does make for a wise purchase. That way I will have one chassis that I can also use for furture projects as well. I intend on toying with some of my own designs once I study up on amplifier design. One thing that interests me is the hybrid SS and Tube amps as well as the SIT designs.

When you consider that you can build basically any of the Pass designs (BA-2, BA-3, F4, F5, F5c, F5T, Tea-Bag's new F6 boards, and possibly soon AlephJ) And the HoneyBadger in that case, you quickly see that it's a smokin' deal.

Also there are many more PCB that you could adapt with minimum fuss into it as well.

Yea, and it looks like the faceplate will be easy to mod for a VU display as well.
