Zx8301 heatsink?

Postby Kermit » Sun Sep 10, 2017 2:07 pm

I have ULA heatsinks on my ZX81 and Spectrum ULA, so would that also be the way to go with the Ql?

The 8301 is not thermally constrained. The main constraint on the 8301 in the QL is the poor quality of the DRAM Sinclair used, and the poor quality of the power/ground configuration. An 8301 heatsink would do nothing for the QL.
