Default Heatsink for the F3

Hey all.

I'm currently preparing the casework for my F3 (plan to start drilling on the weekend). It's a Hifi2000 case, and the biggest sucker I could find.

The heatsinks are rated at 0.2C/W, BUT, each side is actually made up of 2 0.4C/W heatsinks, which are held together with a bracket, meaning there's a tiny gap between the heatsinks.

What would be the best way to mount the transistors on this thing ? Would two per heatsink be sufficient, or should I put some sort of compound between the heatsinks to ensure they make proper contact with eachother ?

Mount the top two Mosfets on one sink, and the bottom Mosfet and
JFET on the other.
