My Bursons arrived today. Also made a try at making a case heat transfer block.
A very good idea. Then, we need some ideas to dissipate heat from those op amps.
Hey guys, I'm looking at the massdrop for the Gustard X12. Is it a good deal? What are some other options around $450 if the drop doesn't go through?
Remove/Change the houssing with an aluminum or coper one.. They should work up to 85'C ...

Strongly not recommended
In case you really want to do this, then:
- you'll loose Burson's life-time warranty
- it will be very difficult to remove existing red plastic housing because of internal yellow molded thermal compound
- short circuit might occur if external aluminum/copper housing will get installed
For those really needing an external copper housing then have a look at BURSON SS website because there's already a copper housing made especially for the V5 SS opmaps, but it needs to be properly grounded (no need to remove existing red plastic housing). It's been designed to minimize external EMI/RFI noise, so it's basically a copper shield to minimize noise injection.
Sorry I could not replied earlier, due to our weekend break. If you have any questions and request please send via our main email. PM system is not working for me right now since we right now.
Here is a bigger photo of the heatsink as requested:
Yes, the heatsink part is hold by two double sided thermal tape. Thanks again for all your support.
