Simple and elegant!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Fred was really easy to work with. His website has recently been updated to make it easier to buy his products. I received a quick reply to my email, and when Fred realized I have added the SideKX handles and cover, he suggested I try his "T" model heat sink which is brand-new and specifically designed to accomodate the SideKX.

After placing my order I received the package in just a few days. The installation process was very simple, though Fred has created a very good set of instructions that should ensure nobody makes a mistake. He does not feel it necessary to use heat sink compound, but I did add just a little between the rig and heat sink anyway.

Make sure you READ the instructions. You DO need to open the rig to fit the heat sink, but just to get a grip on the PA transistor nuts while removing the old screws and replacing them with those supplied in Fred's kit.

The Cooler KX-T heat sink installed easily, looks good, and doesn't add much weight to the rig. I'm sure it will help significantly to keep the rig's temperature down during heavy use.
