Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Alpha PAL8045 Review - Alpha PAL8045 Review
Sun, November 25 2001 | 12:20PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Scott at Templintech takes a look at the baddest Alpha heatsink available the PAL 8045. Definitely one of best heatsinks around!

Now for the good stuff the Alpha it's self is a massive hunk of dull black aluminum sporting a hand counted 426 thin hexagonal pins, the base has a homogonous build with a flat copper heat spreader that has mystified people for years, there is no gap between the copper inserts and the Aluminum body of the HSF which makes for nearly perfect heat transfer between the 2. Theories for this construction have included press fits, cold forging, micro forging, shrink fits and more, suffice it to say that only Alpha knows exactly how this HSF is made but it's very well put together.
