Show us your calculations based on the thermal resistance of the heat sink, the total power dissipation of the devices mounted on the heat sink, the ambient air temperature and your expected heat sink temperature.
A picture of how it is mounted so we can see if you are restricting the air flow around the heat sink would help.
