For now I will use them as is. The damage to the pads is not so terrible if you don't need to re-work them anymore. If ever I think these beasts need an upgrade, I will consider a new front-end PCB (with LS disconnection relay implemented).

Today was a sunny day, which wasn't forecast, but I took the opportunity to take a photoshoot on the amps

Default Aleph 2 not hot enough?

I have just finished one monoblock of my Aleph 2. It makes good sound, but I am wondering whether there is something wrong with my build. I was expecting the heatsink to be scorching hot, but turning the amp on for more than 1 hour and measuring the temperature at one of the MOSFETs mounting bolt, it settles at only 56.7 degree C (around 20C ambient). The heatsinks are only warm and I can put my hands on the heatsinks forever.

My heatsink is the 10.080" profile from HeatsinkUSA:
10.080" - HeatsinkUSA, LLC Store

I am using 4 pieces of 9 inch long section per monoblock (3 MOSFET mounted on each 9 inch piece). It is guesstimated at 0.80 C/W/3 inch. So theoretically my setup is around 0.80/(4x3 inches) = 0.067 C/W.

More info on the build:
1kVA trafo
16 x 15000 uF electrolytics (2.7 mH inductor)
Power supply output at 50V
IRFP244 matched within 10mV
Parts BOM per kk-pcb (Pass Labs ALEPH-2 DIY amplifier PCB)

Maybe I should not worry about all these and just enjoy it.
