Oh... I thought the parmetal ones were 40cm. I just bought 4x modushop 200 X 40 H 165 for my F5 and they costed 129 euros shipped. Anyway...

20x12 inches... those things are huge
And 8 of them?
What kind of beast are you cooling? At least you will save on heating during the winter

Yes, the PSU boards are also ebay.

Mine heat sinks are 8" tall. 10" wide. 4 per channel. (4 mosfets per sink)
Looks to be about 1/2 the price of the modushop ones after shipping to me. Of course... I do my own drilling and tapping and have scrap 1/4" aluminum around. Even so... pretty good chunk of change.

Damn. Did you have them anodized locally? Or just use them bare?

In other news, I cut my aluminum pieces this weekend. They're just 10" wide piece to span the heat sinks. 2 pieces are 3" long for the front and back. One piece is 6" long to connect the front and rear sinks together. I think that should do it. 1/4" aluminum plus 1/4-20 bolts screwed into drilled and tapped holes in the heat sinks seems to be pretty beefy.

Need to go find some wood scraps for the front and rear panels now. And figure out what I'm going to do for the top. Perhaps another plexiglass piece like my F5 and DCB1.

Finally got around to finishing up some of the drilling and tapping. These things are going to be big and heavy! Hoping to get some more done while on vacation ahead of the new year.
