Don't count on the anodizing to act as an insulator... bad juju. The aluminum isolators you see used have special anodizing, metal and processing.

Sil Pads work great and their cheap. Good heat sinking is more about having a resilient mounting scheme... like a strong spring or clip. Thermal cycling (expansion and contraction) has more to do with poor heat transfer than than insulators and goop.

The moment you drill a hole through and put a screw in you break the insulation...

According to the first post, Alleycat has the TF version, so electrical insulation is a non-issue.
