Default Upright Heat sinks for f5

I know this has been asked a few hundred times, but hey... I really want to build a tall narrow chassis for my f5, I know upright is less efficient and therefor more expensive but I cant help myself.

Nelson says:

At 1.3 amps per channel, you will see idle heat dissipation of 62 watts. To keep the temperature rise of the heat sink to 20 deg C. above the ambient temperature, you will want a heat sink rated at about .6 deg C./watt for each transistor. An example of this would be a chunk of finned aluminum, with a series of 2 fins attached to an 8 by 6 base. You will need two per channel.

So for 1 channel I would need a 2"D x 6"W x 16"H with at least a 1/4" plate
as a minimum size.

Does anybody know of a supplier of this type of design/dimensions or an alternative that I might build myself??

Can I stack smaller sinks and link them somehow?

I am open to any suggestions no matter how weird.

Cheers all
Dean

Is it possible to use something like this

Conrad Heatsinks - Products

Perhaps the MF35-100?

Standing upright, with the fins running horizontally? Surely this is a bad idea

I'll keep this open just in case someone who has tried their horizontal heat sinks running vertically has some sort of advice or measurements.

Look forward to any comments, cant find much using google, mainly PC related.

Just found this at the ESP site, basically says horizontal fins is a crap idea.... Back to the drawing board.

Does anybody have a supply or supplier of heat sinks roughly like:

100mmW x 50mmD x 300mmH with the fins running vertically?

C'mon, just for laughs

Anybody, Bueller ???
