Best,

It got to over 50 degrees with the HS standing vertical. With a TINY desk fan it drops to about 10 degrees above ambient. So I need to find a larger and more efficient heat sink.

it will be much more efficient if cut in two halves per length , then positioned with fins vertical

with piece that long , you have maybe just 1,3 of capability of one half

also - you need dome clearance between fins and base on which is heatsink standing

This is just a piece of HS that I use for testing, so not worried at all. Just needed to make sure everything actually works.
