Hola my friends. During my search for a better factory and better pricing, the old place decided to make my heatsinks before giving me a price, and with the incorrect files. They made the parts completely wrong and more importantly, before I said go ahead and make them. On a more happy note, all products (that are not made in house) are now being made at the place that is doing the InfinityHubs.
Back to the chEapSink. I got the incorrect units from the factory at a discounted price. People recommended I fix them, and sell them as the regular unit, but there would still be some oddities and it just doesn’t feel right.
I went ahead and made some adjustments to make them usable. They work perfectly with the Unity/Xenith, and will work with the stormcore using fewer screws. I feel like 30 bucks is a fair price that will allow more people to utilize heatsinks in their builds. I’ve got forty pieces that are ready to be shipped.
@Paul77 just in case you don’t want my extra black one
Wait so what exactly is wrong with them? They don’t fit the stormcore?
Love this project.
I just got a 1" thick piece of cast aluminum in the mail today so I can try routing it by hand with a beefy Bosch router and some end mills. Going to try 3d printing jigs/fixtures to make it easier.
They’re supposed to fit trampa vesc, focbox, etc
negative. This is the mini version.
What is wrong is that the ESCs will not be perfectly centered, there is no anodize, they have to be installed in a different manor than the regular, and I think the stormcore might require the use of 3 screws instead four (don’t have an SC, so who ever gets one can let us know the verdict).
1 inch is pretty thick lol. Also just curious why you purchased cast?
Cast is ultra flat. Much flatter than extruded. Yes, thick, I want to mill most of it away. Well, at least half.
Good looking out, but I dig the black!
Do these also fit your topmount box? 150mm opening
Negative. I could see about making one tho.
These are much smaller, I will dimensions up when I get a chance ( too much home work!!!)
Cast is just more stable, thus will likely to stay flat, but you gotta get it flat first.
I was referring to something like Mic6 tooling plate. I guess it’s precision ground.
I bought one two months ago, but it took him a month and many angry emails to ship it out. Ended up getting it powder coated
Ahhhhh damn, i was afraid of that. It took 3 months until i cancelled my x-brace order, and a week until I had a better set from elsewhere.
Thanks for the heads up!
