  1. For an Air-Cooled system it would have to be the (1) Alpha PAL 8045 with a Delta Fan.

    Test results from manufacturer:

    Second would be the Kanie Hedgehog W.(Wing)

    See independent test results above.

    Third wouyld be the Thermalright SK6. This one is the cheapest yet with the best results.

    Also: see independent results above.

    So there you have it in order.
    1-Alpha ---------- PAL 8045
    2-Kanie ---------- Hedgehog W
    3-Thermalright --- SK6

  2. I believe the two heavyweights at this point are:

    1. Alpha Pal-8045 (once again Alpha is on top)
    2. Swiftech mc462 - still at the peak

  5. I use the Sanyo-Denki on my Swifttech.

    #1 = Alpha PAL 8045
    #2 = Swifttech MCX-462-A

    :tongue: Have you ever tried cooking an egg on your HSF? Tasty. :tongue:
  6. ha,

    I only use Alpha heatsinks, and at the moment it's a Pal-6035 with a Thermaltake 60mm fan on it. Chills my 1ghz Athlon at 1333.

    Thinking of getting the 8045 at x-mas time and gunning for 1500.
