Those guys at Mikhailtech just don't sleep do they? This time they take a look
at the Swiftech MCX462. Damn, actually a better hsf then my original MC462?
I want one now!
Also, now the pins have a smaller diameter compared to the ones on the MC462,
2.38mm compared to the 3.17mm. MC462-A, the first version, has 269 fins while
the new and improved MCX462 has a total of 371 aluminum-ribbed pins. With the
change in both shape, size and number, the increase of surface area from MC462
to MCX462 is 50%, or at least that's what Swiftech claims and I believe them.
But not only large surface makes a heatsink great, the base must also be good.
In this case it's even more. The pure copper of the MCX462 is thick, large and
very very flat.
