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.i7-920 @ 3.57Ghz 1.28v
Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD4 F10
6Gb Walton Chaintech 1600Mhz 7-7-7-18-1T
Noctua NH-U12P Push/Pull
Radeon HD4850 512Mb @ 700/1150Mhz MUSASHI cooled
2 Intel X25-V 40Gb in Raid0
2 Barracuda 500Gb in Raid1 + Maxtor 320Gb
U2-UFO Case cooled by ~750Cfm!

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
EVGA nVidia GeForce GTX-480 *(soon to be 580)
4x Seagate 1TiB SATA - 2TiB RAID 10
Western Digital 1.5TiB (Storage)

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 calledPeter 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.
