Specifications

 

 

I don't generally include specifications for heatsinks, but this one does have some special qualities to flaunt. So here we go with a short and sweet information blurb from the Swiftech site:

 

Heatsink

 

CNC machined, C110 copper base, 3"W x 3"L x .500"H, flatness better than 0.0003", micro surface finish 8 or better.

 

371 Helicoid Pins made of High Thermal Conductivity Aluminum Alloy, press fitted in the base.

 

Overall heatsink dimensions 3" x 3" x 1.66"

 

Weight: 23.2 oz (650g)

 

Retention Mechanism

 

Motherboard fittings: 6-32 Female to Male 1/4" standoffs with lock-nuts

 

Heatsink fittings: 4 pre-assembled compression springs provide exact specified pressure per chip manufacturers

 

As we can see, there is nothing here that isn't top notch. This begins to tell us a story of WHY this Swiftech sink has everyone talking. But fancy terms and numbers aren't what we're really here to talk about today. We want to see the story behind the numbers and see with our own eyes why the MCX462+ is sitting at the top of the food chain.
