    Cooling FAN for Sproggy MK2 PSU

    I just finished the bulding of a Sproggy MK2 psu and everything is working well from the starting(lucky...).
    Nevertheless I have some doubts about the temperature of the heatsink wich seems to be high. Is this normal and have I to put a cooling fan to fix the problem.
    Thanks.

    I use a fan that blows air over my 2.7 sproggy. The heatsinks i am using are quite big (out of an old AT PSU). The temp is about 30degrees so not that hot.

    My heatsink is about as small as it could be to fit all the heatsunk components along the back of the board, which is fairly small... but have a fan (normal fullsize powersupply fan) and it seems to run KEWL...

    I have a fan blowing on it also. the supply is inside a tupperware box, with one hole in the lid where the fan is, and one on the side blowing the air above the motherboard towards the cpu.
