Hey, so I was looking on Modwerks(I really need to do another project....its like an addiction!:anyone:) and I came across THIS Module/Heatsink Assembly. It is all in pieces so I was wondering if anyone has a pic of what it looks like assembled, as well as how well it dissipates the heat. For example, would it be alright heatsinking for a 445? A 6X? I mean, what would be the target diode for this Module to house? :thinking:

Thanks for any and all replies! Peace,
Isaac

You sir, seem to be missing your link to the product.

If it's what I think it is, the $25 heatsink, it should be able to sink the heat off any diode quite effectively as it does have a lot of mass and a lot of surface to air for usage with fans (active cooling with airflow).

Link added in OP, its not the Labby style. It is 12.99 and looks a lot like the front end of the Kryton Grooves. I was gonna add the link originally, but 'me ADD kicked in and I published the thread without it ha!

That would be nothing but a little bigger Aixiz module and I would not trust it to handle anything over 1W of heat, as I have used some 1W IR diodes in modules very similar to those.

You should do OK with red diodes and 6x blurays I think. Anything over that, needs moar mass, or more fins and airflow. Your call.

so for a 6X do you think it would be able to run one at 100% duty cycle?

I use that in my scanner for my 445 @ 750ma with a small fan and it works fine. I would be scared running it without a fan on it though.
