Default C6 build help please.

I know its been talked about a million times.

I just ordered this

http://www.survivallaserusa.com/DIY_...2_7862087.aspx

will this fit with it? I read in jayrobs post that if i wanted a longer heat sink i would have to drill out the pill.

http://www.survivallaserusa.com/Exte...2_7862094.aspx
I would like that heat sink, but all the build tutorials online use the standard sized heat sink :
Copper Heat Sink

I dont want to machine or drill, so would i need to get the standard one? or could I get the larger tapered one?


Thank you for reading.

The extended heatsink fits just fine and is preferable for the C6 as the standard sized sink is pretty small plus you get more room to work with for your module as the standard can be a bit cramped.

Thank you so much.

I am tripping out on one thing though. in the email i just got telling me it had been shipped, it says my shipping address is unconfirmed?

What does that mean, if anything, and do i need to take any action to mitigate a disaster?

Nope that just means you have not gone through the verification process for your address yet with paypal. On larger orders some vendors will require you to have a confirmed address before they will ship to you.

Sighhh i should have ordered the non tapered heat sink, or just the standard copper one.

I just saw this:

http://d11fdyfhxcs9cr.cloudfront.net...small_7613.pdf

And i realllllly dont like how it sticks out that much!
Dammit, I really should have looked at more pictures before I ordered. Too bad the service was so good that it shipped out in 8 hours.

Actually, I like the appearance of the extended and tapered heat sink in the S4 host (more than in the C6). Personal preference I guess.
