Is there not a way to get a Deluxe 4U chassis that's 400mm deep?

The Dissipante 4U is available in 400mm depth. Don't know about the Deluxe. Check their sales page.

The limiting factor is the depth of the heatsinks. It is a standard size in order to standardize the manufacturing process. Though you may check the OEMs actual website (www.modushop.biz)as there are more options available on there.

We do not produce a Deluxe 4U with a 400mm depth. If you are interested in the UMS layout for the 4U 400 chassis feel free to send us a CAD drawing and we can customize the heatsinks in any way you want

I'm about to finish up the layout of the case and before moving on I would like to ask you what front panel design is more simple, easy to make and cost less between this two (there is a plexiglass in both), forgot to mention is a Slim Line 02/280 10mm front panel:

They cost exactly the same as they are both customized on both sides of the panel

I made a soekris dac and made something very similar (almost identical) to the first pic. I donít know what costs more, more holes or plexiglass. I will say, however, you need to check, double check, triple check, and maybe even quadruple check to make sure your drawing layout will work with your soekrs display board and the way it is mounted. There is very little margin of error.

Thanks Gianluca, when doing both side of a panel do you suggest to redo anodization after works?

Thats's exactly what I'm trying to achieve, a case for the dam1941 with the own display board. As you suggest the margin a tight and that's why I thought about a single hole for the leds and display shaped like that.

What case size did you choose for your build?

I believe it was the pessante 2U. It turned out pretty good. If you use a cable to connect the dam1941 to the display board it will be a little easier as you wont have to ensure the display and 1941 line up properly when mounted.

In my opinion in your case anodizing the panel after the milling is not really needed because the only part which is going to be drilled from on the front face is going to be covered anyway (recess for the knob).
