hi at all :)

Im using four 3040 schottky diode in to3p-3 case,recycled by some atx supply... for rectify 12v toroidal transformer for a very high quality tda7297 :D hahahah

this is the old trasformer...

There are no contraindications for this use?
or it's better a normal single case bridge rectifier?

They are ok for the purpose. Relatively low-voltage ones, but enough for your 12V. All the rest parameters are fine, plus schottky are faster than average rectifiers, which is always good.
