Inventor seeks advice about heat sinks

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello Overclockers,

I'm a garage inventor looking for parts for something I am working on (involving liquid ring vacuum pumps). It just so happens that the perfect part for what I need is really similar to extruded radial fin heat sinks, kind of like the classic one on the stock Intel LGA775 P4, except without the bifurcated fins.

I've managed to find an example or two of heat sinks like this (such as the Coolermaster CI5-9HDPA-01 And CI5-9HDPA-0L and the nPowertek SF 775-2) using sites like frostytech, but I can't seem to find any of these older heat sinks for sale. I can still find some of the bifurcated ones for sale, but cutting the extra ends off the fins is going to be way too much work.

Would any of you knowledgeable folks be able to direct me to somewhere I could buy a few extruded radial heat sinks, or give me an idea of a more modern heat sink like these which might still be for sale? I'd be very appreciative of any help you could give.

You're looking for ones about the same size at the Intel ones?

Have you check non-consumer heatsink companies or LED heatsinks?

If you have the money, you can get custom heatsinks made or check if a machine shop can meet your requirements as well.

Aye, I'm looking for ones around the same size as the Intel ones (~90mm) although I am very flexible on size. It's more the shape that I am seeking.

I know that I can get custom ones made, but that requires a lot of money and has a minimum run size of multiple pieces. The whole point of finding the right consumer heat sink is so that I don't have to spend $500+ on what should be a $20 part. I can't really afford to go custom every time I need a weird part; that way lies bankruptcy.

Any suggestions?

Look on the for sale site for anyone selling Intel stock heatsinks.

Or - put up a Wanted post in the FS sections asking for stock Intel coolers. Tons of people have them sitting around.

This. Pretty much everyone on these forums has a stock heat sink (like the ones you need) just laying around with no use. I'm sure someone wouldn't mind giving you one for free or for $10-20

Edit: May be a perfect find.
