Finding an appropriate heatsink for 5V 3W LED? Answered
Hello, I have bought some 3W 5V leds, and now I have to dissipate the heat they produce. I am thinking of using an xbox 360 GPU heatsink i have laying around (
), cut in apprpriate size. Then I would glue the led with thermal epoxy to it.
Can somebody suggest an adequate size for the heatsink? I can't find any info around. I have other heatsinks as well, I would rather not buying a LED heatsink if that's not mandatory.
Thanks in advance :)
Picture of the leds attached, they have no board to screw them with.
