Default F5 heat sink, rhetorical question,

I'm moving to Mexico in about 4 months and have all the components and boards from the shop for Nelsons F5

i recently took apart a Cambridge 5.1 surround sound receiver and have the

have a heat sink with fan attached, small neat and compact,

this was cooling six B817 E4E1's six, D1047 E 4F1 and six D946BR, although i haven't a clue what they are but hope someone can identify them from the numbers,

Question would the 4 fets in an F5 generate more heat than this lot, ?

thanks for any thoughts or input,

John S

it will perfectly cool F5 , presumably with lazy spinning vent ( 7-8Vdc)

make tunnel around fins - you can use any sort of plastic foil for that ...... maybe piece of Roentgen (I scavenged full pack of these from buddy working in local lab) , so it will be most effective

attached fan control by Papa

it will start fan with full throttle and slow it down immediately

PSU voltage - simplest - just put 7812 reg in front , in case of feeding it from main amp PSU

Thanks Zen
i'll tunnel it as you suggest yes i had intended fitting a circuit to power the fan
i think its 6 volts but will fit a pot to vary the speed,

regards all
