My upcoming build is going to be a high power LPC, in what I'm hoping to be a from-scratch, heatsinked metal host. I'm trying to do everything myself, and I don't have access to a drill press. I'm wondering about the feasibility of molding a heatsink around an AIXIZ module using solder or possibly straight lead. Lead's specific heat isn't much higher than aluminum, so I'd think its heat transference properties would be almost as good...Any thoughts?
