    Hi NEWBIE911, welcome to the Forum,
    I'm sorry but for sure your Mobo isn't compatible with the HeatSInk Pal8045 (check it here) so I suppose that is the same with the Swiftech MC462A.

    You can modify the heatsinks, however, to fit, as long as you have a hacksaw and vise. This does void the warranty, howver (how the hell are yo going to break a heatsink anyhow???)

    Asus Sabertooth P67

    I had to take the corner off my alpha to clear a capacitor.. I used a file. IT worked great.

    an alternate idea is getting the swiftech mcx370 designed for socket 370 cpus but i am sure it will fit your mobo

    Usually people will work around if it doesn't fit. In this case in the thread you've see people used files etc.

    Before my slot computer died I had a Volcano 6cu+ I was planning to put on the slotket I had to cut down maybe 2-3cm because it was coming in contact with the chipset.

    You can hacksaw or get a machine sandpaper thingy I don't know what it's called
    Peter Gibbons: Let me ask you something. When you come in on Monday, and you're not feelin' real well, does anyone ever say to you, 'Sounds like someone has a case of the Mondays'?

    Lawrence: No. No, man. ****, no, man. I believe you'd get your ass kicked sayin' something like that, man.
