Oh, I didn't know it came in anodized black as well. That was something I was looking for in my heat sink - anodized in color. Black is likely what I would have gone with, but other options would be nice too. One of the builds in the build list used the 80/20 as the heat sink/structure and it made a very attractive fixture. I'll have to browse again to remember which one, though.

Which reminds me of another factoid I recall from my research...

EDIT: it was Fizzout's build that used the 80/20, for those who want to check it out.
