I wish you the best of luck on your build, but you might want to avoid advertising your age as you technically have to be 18 (not that many members care about this)No worries, I'll probably only order the parts around November as my parents will pay for some of the parts as my birthday is in November, and I'll have enough money saved by then. I just want to make sure I make the best choice as it might be my only build (at least until I turn 18, I'm currently 15) as my allowance is so low.
That’s a good choise, the c6s are nice, small easy builds. Just keep in mind the smaller heat sink if you’re going to run a powerful diode.UPDATE
I am going for a C6 with an aluminum heatsink, so I'll do the build in only a month or two. Thinking better, I like a smaller host better than a bigger one. I might do an S4X build with a 9mm or NDB7475 in a year or two after this one.
The same as the one I was initially planning to put in an S4X (PLTB450B @1.25A). Thinking back, I'll use a copper heatsink.If I may ask, what diode are you planning on using in the C6 host? I would not put anything close to two watts or more of optical power in that host. You should be concerned about waste heat and being able to remove it from the diode.
