This heatsink is designed to mate with itself to form a tunnel. The heatsink extrusion has screw flute centre to enable 4 x No.6 self- tapping screws to fasten an 80mm standard type fan on one (or both) end/s to drive air through the heatsink assembly. It is ideal for high power amplifiers and power supplies. The entire assembly, including fan/s can still fit inside a 2 x Rackunit (88mm) enclosure. The heatsink also features ribbed fins for extra surface area, a 4mm thick base to enable thread tapping and small vee grooves on 5mm centres to facilitate mounting hole location. The centre groove, for example, is directly below the middle fin.
