Just the covers? Sure thing:

Dissipante: 3mm Aluminum Covers – diyAudio Store

300 and 400mm, 4 or 6 rows.

Not slots, but round holes in a pattern like this:

Is it possible to reduce the price of the Deluxe 5U Aluminum chassis by requesting heatsinks without pre-drilled holes and with plain front and back panels?

The "maximally vented" panels (6 rows of vents) are the most that was determined that you could take out of an aluminum panel and it still have structural integrity. However your design with circles might allow for other possibilities. Please email contact@diyaudiostore.com and Gianluca can have a deeper discussion about this with you. Probably the holes will need to be smaller or the gaps between them larger than what you show.

Steel is heavier and stronger (which would allow for less material to be remaining) but a custom steel design cannot be produced by CNC and must be punched out, and will have a MOQ (minimum order quantity) of around 20 units.

What you describe is a stock 5U x 400 Dissipante, if you then add a baseplate and maximally vented 3mm aluminum covers.

No, I need the pair of 200 x 40 x 210 heatsinks per side, which requires the 413mm deep chassis.

Thank you. I see it now, I had not looked at some of the available options.

Hello Rich,


If you already have a DXF drawing with the extra holes you would like us to drill for you feel free to send it to the email address Jason has written and I'll let you know how to place your order for your customized cover

Good Evening

I am looking a wee bit of advice please.

It is my intention to build a 10 channel amplifier. Each stereo channel is about 170 mm in width and 90 mm in height.

The following chassis comes to my mind.
Dissipante 5U diyAudio Store

Is it possible to squeeze three of these PCBs on each side based on the
40 mm heatsink 200 mm * 210 mm?

Please advice.

Thank you

Yeshu26

Hello Himanshu,


Please have a look at the PDF I have sent you through the ticket systems. You have to consider a height of 210mm instead of 165mm and you can calculate if there is enough space for your components on the heatsinks
