Where to purchase LM323K Heatsink?

Hi,

I'm looking for another heatsink for the LM323k voltage regulator.
(I have some, but they are about half the height)

Does anyone have a source for these?

thx in advance

Found heatsink at Mouser...

I think this is the right one... 1.25" high:

I believe the part number recommended here is actually too tall at 1.25", instead it should be 1" tall. The number I recommend is WAKEFIELD 680-10A

Based on the dimensions that I took from an original, Wakefield 680-10A is correct.

They are 1.81" (46mm) square, with a 1" (25.4mm) height.

In operation, it gets very warm. I would not recommend substituting the shorter
680-75A or 680-5A.

I would agree don't go smaller. In fact the height difference between the 1" and 1.25" is barely noticeable. The heat dissipation isn't. I would suggest going with the 1.25" just to be safe. When an LM323 goes it can just short the raw voltage across costing you many components on your board.

Cheers,
Corey
