I'm looking for an aluminum 25cm by 100cm heat sink with 2.5cm fins.

This is actually for some 50W LEDs but I thought this was the best place to post because desktops use heat sinks.

What my question is, is there anyone in NZ that supplies heat sinks such as the one mentioned above?
I can get one from the states for $300 so if anyone knows someone cheaper in NZ please post them!

Have you tried a non ferrous metal supplier for some aluminium extrusion? That or an electronics repair place who might have some heat sinks from discarded kit.

I know I've got some around, but the box of junk is 12,000 miles away - sorry

Did someone buy a 50W LED from Deal Extreme? ...mine arrived a few weeks ago... and I added a large CPU heat pipe heatsink to the order. You still need to make an adapter plate, because CPUs are a little bit smaller than 50W LEDs.

A heat pipe heatsink is your best bet, and you need the fan. Better still, underdrive the LED. With the last bit of current the efficiency tapers off anyway, and trust me a 50W LED is too bright for most applications. Even looking at a 10W is blinding. I'll be trialling my 50W for stage lighting once I get a chance on the company milling machine - but drinking coffe over break times is so much more appealing. Also got a few other LED strips for our new home.

You can run LEDs at 70 degrees, but best to keep them at 50 max.




You can never have enough Volvos!

Ullrich sell it by the meter, but you will have to call them to see what is in stock. Most likely a minimum purchase length will apply, like five meters or so.

If your requirements are huge, they will manufacture of course : )
