I'm Looking for the ratings of the quasi heatsinks.
They're not rated, found this. The Amazingly DIY Friendly "Quasi Heatsinks" – diyAudio Store

I see dissipation numbers for the 40 mm heatsinks, but where are those data for the slimlines?

We aren't providing a cooling rating for them - please use your discretion when deciding what you are going to do with them.

For DCG3, Salas said "easily" enough dissipation with the quasi's!

The space saving is temping for a 50w apex power amp. I'll see if Apex guys can help me out.

There is a very, very large difference between the cooling requirements of a linestage compared to a power amp. The extrusions are not heatsinks, as Gian says.

Depending on them to have any power dissipation in a situation like that is risky.
