Hello audi0,
I like your ingenuity!

I've CAD'd up some boxes for a Firstwatt F5. The design is pretty simple and uses the Conrad heatsinks as the main support structure. Once I finalise the design, I see what price a local metal fabricator will cut up the aluminum plate for me.

Cheers,

alex

Hi Alex,

Actually I have a passively cooled audio computer in very early stages of construction, I was thinking of using Altronics diecast heatsinks (H05450) as part of the structure, great minds....

Hey Alex,

I just checked the Conrad web site, I think the Altronics item might be a Conrad product

Yeah, I believe Altronics do stock a few of the Conrad heat sinks.

I bought 4x MF35-151.5 and the shipping to Perth was only $12! The heat sinks look great, and all reports on DIYA are good for quality and customer service.

Cheers,

alex
