I just saw these cases on ebay - had I seen them earlier I would have gone for these. They look custom built just for Ncores !! I still might transplant mine over

Same seller, but these look more appropriate for the NCore, no heat-sinks...

Despite that - the cases with the heat sink seem to look a little bit cooler - so to speak. Given that we are generating some heat and trying to keep the ambient temp in the case down (my previous case ran the SMPS really hot), I think these are a good match. Here's my transplanted Ncores anyway:

Just in case anyone else wants to lower the temperature around the SMPS capacitors, here's a heatsink I just received.  It's sized to fit the top of the large flat heatsink on the SMPS600 (3.5" long, 1.1" wide and about 1" tall).

Heatsinkusa.com custom cuts the width and sells this size for $1, although the shipping and handling is $10 extra!

Looks good! Have you noticed any drop in temps with your new cases?

Yes they do seem to run a bit cooler - not that I was too worried about temps to begin with. Just heading into summer here with ambient temps heading north of 25c

Anyone knows a provider for an acrylic case?
I plan to wire as class II, and I dont want to use a metal chassis for safety reasons.

I've been thinking about offering a 5 channel amp.  With Cards stacked within the chassis.  Much like this gentlemans build from DIYAUDIO



I suppose I could do something like a [3 card 3 channel], [4 card 2 channel], [5 card 5 channel] offering.  I'm a little hesitant because I don't want to get stuck with a bunch of cases that don't sell.

Thanks,
Robert

can you post the link regarding that set up? it is very interesting indeed.

....need to get a few more bits before I start to build the encores. Could someone tell me what type/size crimp I need to connect the     
(TE Connectivity 15CUE1) IEC inlet, and also what are those plastic covers called that slide over the crimp. If someone could point me to a website to order in the UK or just to show what I need to order would be a great help. Thanks.

I am thinking about building or buying a pair of these amps.
I was wondering is anyone offering cases, amp kits, complete
builds, building service etc.

Going to compare to a dual mono ClassD Audio SDS254 amp
that uses one linear power supply.



Thanks All,
JT

Does anyone know where one might find a rounded case such as Hypex used for the Midimono?

This is precisely what I am looking to do.   Anyone have a source for a case where you can mount "cards" like this?

full aluminum, nice for a dual mono set
Ghent Audio (http://www.ghentaudio.com) will be modifying their case (now for ICE modules) to be NC$00 and SMPS 600 ready:

I think their case is a little more refined than the SiliconRay equivalent.

"Hi,

We will have new design case-kit, specific for NC400 and SMPS600 soon, about half month later.

I will let you know once finishing production.

Greeting,
Ghent"

That Ghent case looks rather nice to me. Seems a little bit less wide, and a little bit longer, than the Siliconray one.
Has anyone actually tried it yet?

I thought so too, and it just recently became available, so I'll know in a couple of weeks! Ordered black case with silver faceplate, Ghent told me one can get an all silver case for $10 more.

A little spendy, but includes hardware. Seemed like a nice middle ground between the $70 cases and the uber nice Aluminati.

Do you by chance have any photos of either of those combinations?

Not for the NC400 case specifically, but you can get a pretty good idea looking at various photos on Ghent website;

http://www.ghentaudio.com/index.html

Also, it's possible Ghent would email photos, he's/they've been responsive to my queries.

This excerpted from an email from Ghent right after I posted above, "We will update our listing with Silver color after we taking all pictures, still need couple of more days :)"

So there you go!

Would you know if they have actually measured the interior temperatures of their cases during operation? As discussed elsewhere, even if the hypex modules are very efficient compared to AB class amps, they do generate some heat, and especially the smps600 seems to suffer from operation in high temperatures.
