I'll bet it's good enough, at least to get started.
Mine is just barely warm. I have a large heat sink, but it doesn't have much
in the way of fins.
If you have a large chunk of 1/8 in aluminum, that might be worth a try. Say
3x the area of the bottom.

What's your ambient?
You can get slightly better cooling if you turn it on its side/end, or lift
the fins off the surface with a couple of spacers so the air can get in there
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's. I hate spam.
