Each transistor needs to be electrically isolated from the heatsink - that's the job of the pads. If well isolated it is not a problem to put one or more channels on a heatsink, because the heatsink is at chassis ground.

But since heat must be conducted away from the transistor you also need low thermal resistance - that the reason for using thermal compounds. Sanding and polishing the contact surfaces is recommended by some -- helps lower the thermal resistance. Thermal compounds are not insulating and must be used in a very thin film, it only fills microscopic uneveness in the mating surfaces.

Before using arctic silver as thermal compound check its properties - I think it is electrically conductive. You don't want to use a conductive material here.

Hope this helps,
Francois

Artic silver is fine with those pads.. have combined them before...

Arcticsilver is not conductive to the point that I'd worry about it... it can act capacitive (bit of a problem if you decide to use them on some videocards' memory chips), but I have used it with great success.. take multimeter and find which pin is connected to the transistor's tab... after installing transistorcheck for no continuity between the tab and the sink...

P.S. prefer Mica pads and thermal goop above the silicon ones..
burs on the drill edge of holes can for instance cut through the silicon and cause a short...

Hi Nordic,

I have emailed you directly.


I am busy collecting bits and pieces for the construction of this amplifier, has there been any discussion on suitable enclosures for it? What size enclosure should I be looking at?

If anyone wants to get a HDII kit, I'm selling two stereo sets in the trading post. I just don't have the time....
