Do you really need all that cooling? My 2xXR-E have 4xLED sinks on the top (the self adhesive ones from JayCar). They are OK at 1A too. Here, these:

never really thought of the OTB problem that sometimes arises. Perhaps i'll replace that big one with a few small ones.

not as easy as i thought to remove the big heat sink. It's bolted down with the nut firmly sealed on the inside. perhaps i'll just chop it down a bit?!?
