I was wondering if the Swiftech MCX-462-U fits in the Dragon Plus, because I want to buy it but dont know if it will be blocked by some capacitor or something on the motherboard.
I want to get this Heatsink because my ThermalTake Volcano 6cu+ is too noisy and also my temps are 43C for the case and 52C for the Athlon XP 1700+ CPU under full load. My temps used to be lower before I removed the generic white paste and put Arctic Silver III. Isnt ASIII supposed to be better? Maybe its because my heatsink has a bunch of dents where the CPU die contacts it.

It should fit, although a tight fit at that. My Soyo board barely fit with an Ax7, which is roughly the same size. Arctic Silver III is a good several degrees over generic thermal paste, it's noticeable if you record the temps.
Soon enough, Intel will make the i845s...imagine dual channel Sdram...*shudder*
