I know that heatsinks have been overly discussed, but I have a question.

I have a eight of these heatsinks here:
AAVID heatsink

It is capable of 0.41 C/W for an 8" extrusion, which I have 8 of.

How many of these do I need per channel of an Aleph 2? I currently have the chassis set for 4 heatsinks per channel. How will this work out?

I am just unsure how hot I can allow the Aleph 2 to run.
