Ribbed pinns looks like the only change. I expected them to make it out of copper too but they never listen to me

It's possible that the new 8045 from Alpha cools as well as the big MC462. The Alpha is a lot less expensive, too. There's always a catch. The 8045 takes up about an acre, whereas the MC462 is now properly "zoned" for all? K7 mainboards.

Thanks for the info, sonny!

So Swiftech finally released it. This makes a lot more sense. I never understood the highly polished alumium pins in the first place. I would expect this new version will be the best HS on the market.

I wish the price would come down on it. It's still a little expensive to ship it overseas

Depending who is performing the "shootout," the MCX462 and the Alpha PAL-8045 are nearly identical in performance. As the Alpha is a good deal less expensive, guess I'll have to buy it.

I dunno why it took Alpha soo long to offer a Socket A HS--made for hot-running T-Birds. I think it may well be because they design their products so painstakingly.

Even though you need to remove the mainboard from the case to install either of these HS's, I think that's OK. Looks like they'll never come loose from their mountings, even in serious earthquakes.

You don't have to remove the motherboard. I've been doing a great deal of thermal solutions testing, and what I did was cut a square out of the motherboard backplate to allow access to the back of the motherboard were the ZIF socket is located. Works great . . . .

Well I picked up some stuff from the computer shop, my order took a month, & it did not include the Swifty . My new case setup cools pretty well so maybe I wait a little longer before I upgrade my cooler.
