    Cool

    The Alpha Pal6035 is one of the better performance HSF's on the market.

    Be VERY careful using a Copper Shim, many a user has fried his CPU using this product. You don't want it to short out anything on the CPU's surface.

    I use a PEP 66 with a YS 26cfm sucking & a YS 21 quiet blowing on my Asus A7V133. Have a very thin layer of SS on the CPU core. My temps run between 40*C & 44*C under a load based on room temp.

    I installed a copper shim, sprayed the bottom side with clear coat to ensure it was not grounding out the bridges. I did not have to remove the CPU pads. Coated the shim with a light coat of Thermo Grease not SS. I never saw a drop in temp.
