    Yeah, the 40 and 42mm motors are all seemingly 40mm cans with or without fins. I went with a finless 40mm motor because I wanted greater surface area for my heatsink to work, and it has. I'm getting...

    You made a factual statement that was incorrect. What is "proper" heat transfer? The actual keyword is "must," which makes your statement erroneous. By stating you "must" do something, you're...
