    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???)

    Intel Core i7-2600K
    Asus Sabertooth P67
    2x4gb G.Skill PC14900

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

    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.
