I have made a circuit that is meant to control 12V LED Strips using a WS2803 Chip. The problem I am having is that the L7805CV regulator(datasheet: http://www.kynix.com/uploadfiles/pdf0125/L7805CV.pdf ) reaches 80°C while the 1k resistor bank reaches 40-50°C.

Because of the nature of the WS2803 chip being a current sink this is the only combination of parts I could find that would work to switch LED Strips.

The circuit: each channel has a 1k pull up that has a transistor connected to it, that transistor feeds a 390ohm pullup that goes to a final transistor that works with the LED Strips. All pullups go to a 5V line provided by the regulator from 12V.
