Swiftech MCX462 Review - Swiftech MCX462 Review
Tue, November 20 2001 | 10:50AM | PermaLink Feedback?
Hubert from Vipers Lair takes a look at the new and improved Swiftech MCX-462! Sure is sweet!

Like it's older brother, the MCX462 is a mammoth. With the Delta SHE 68.5cfm fan, it's noticeably larger than the MC462, though the heatsinks are fairly similar in size. The copper base on the MCX appears to be slightly thicker, but not by too much.

Rather than fins, the MCX462 uses pins, 371 of them to be exact. The pins are made of a highly thermal conductive aluminum material that Swiftech attaches to the copper base. Unlike Alpha, which forges them, the pins here are soldered on. The fit is quite snug, and I don't think this will be detrimental in performance.
