Relocating that darn rectifier
Written by pcnz2004 on 2/10/2012 at 07:35 am

I agree with the concept of using the frame as the heatsink and would suggest
retaining the regulator / rectifier in its present location, but would recommend
removing it, coating the back of it with "heat transfer compound" (from your
electronics supply store) a sort of white paste that will actually improve the
heat dissipation to the frame - the mounting position is not exactly flat and
the HTC will take care of these high / low spots.
