Laser heatsink, or just any old big heatsink? I have a massive one left over from some radio equipment.

Not quite for a laser, but rather for a fanless CPU:


18cm x 18cm x 14.8cm at 730g. There, that should satisfy you!

Wow, that looks great! Sure would last very long.

Sorry about your lathe though!

Cheers! :beer:

Radius of 3.5cm so this sink has a diameter of 7cm ? That is sick. :D

CPU heatsinks that I turned into lasers. These are the CPU heatsinks I use for pretty much every desktop build I do.








I love these things. I use a drill press to bore the hole for the aixiz module. The heatsinks alone are enough for no duty cycle but if I wan't I can also use the fans that come with them and hook them back on. I've run 445's at 1,800mA for over an hour 1/2 without any problem at all.
