  • I dug around. This web page shows the individual items in the AAVID heat sink hardware kit:

    AAVID Heat Sink Mounting Kits

    Basically, you need SAE #4-40 machine screws, nuts, washers, and lock washers. These should be cheaper at your local hardware store than they are in a kit.

    The only real advantage of the kit is that it comes with an insulator, but I am going to guess that thermal paste is also more cost effective. If anyone knows of a reason to prefer an insulator over thermal paste, post a reply.

    Update: Sparkfun sells some of the necessary hardware:

    Unfortunately, it does not appear that Sparkfun sells washers or lock washers.

  • Where can I get mounting hardware for this part?

No public wish lists :(
