I was interested about Alpha Pal6035, PEP66 or Swiftech MC370-0A, but i want the best Hsf for my Cpu and it seems to be GREAT!

This is the question: Is it possible on a C2 600? or it's only for AMD?

I know there are other solutions like Blizzard or Hedgehog but i trust Swiftech technology.

Thank you very much for your support.

generally if it will fit an athlon it will fit a celeron, this is not always the reverse as the celeron has a tougher core than the athlon plus some celeron heatsinks have little rubber feet that need taking off for the athlon, you may want to put some kind of support on the heatsink in the corners for balance as some heatsinks wiggle a little when knocked or shaken which will thin out the thermal compound and scratch the heatsink and chip core resulting in slightly worse heat transfer

## Just an FYI as well heatsink is also for use on the new P IV's. The swiftech MC 370 got really good marks as well when tested as a socket 370 cooler by the way... so you might want to think about one of those... ##

Thank you very much for your support.

## Just make sure you have the required mounting holes, the swiftech requires four holes drilled in your mobo to mount it to. So make sure your motherboard or Slocket whichever the case may be has these four hole's if it doesn't I wouldn't even order it. If you don't have those holes there are some other quality heatsink's out there, the Globalwin FOP 32-1's are what I am running on my Dual Celly BP6, but alpha's as well are some out standing heatsink's use what you prefer. If ordering that swiftech tho, make doubly sure you have a way to mount it. ##

My .02 Cents =)

This HSF is for Socket A / P4 mobo only with the 4 mounting screws it requires.

- It is HEAVY: Weight: 27oz (760g) with fan, 20oz (560g) without fan.
- It is HUGE: Overall dimensions with fan 3"x3"x3", without fan 3"x3"x1.56"

You can't easily use and sort of clip cause the hsf is bigger than any socket (not only wider like the Taisol). There should be also serious weightproblems with any sort of clip.
So I pretty much agree with SpeeDJ.

Thanks for yours support,
I didn't saw the need of four holes drilled into mobo to mount it to! :)
Now i must choose Swiftec Mc370-0A or Alpha Pal6035.

You could always expoxy bolts to the MoBo. This would work too.
