Default This was one ugly heatsink!

Well, it could work depending on how much cooling you need.
This seems to be made for cooling CPUs, and it comes with a fan. When it is running at 12V the thermal resistance is 0,28C/W, which means that the temperture rise is about 0,28 * 100W = 28C when dissipating 100W into the heatsink. With an ambient temperature of 25C the heatsink temperature will be 28C + 25C = 53 probably a little higher, though.

But this uses a fan too help cooling the heatsink, which I hate because it's always so noisy. And there seems to be very little space for mounting the power transistors. And don't you think it's very ugly? I do.

I would definity look for another heatsink, a normal one if you are planning to use it with an amp.

Check for example

Default indeed it is made for cpu cooling

indeed it is made for cpu cooling, with a fan. and from reviews i've read about it (as a cpu heatsink) it sucks...
but i think it is kinda pretty.. not on an amp.. but on a cpu
