    i need a lower profile heatsink so i can squeeze the system into a smaller custom case. i have no idea how to shop for heatsinks. do i look under socket 478? it mounts without those metal clips you typically see so im confused on what i need to purchase.

    newegg links would be helpful. thx in advance :hs:

    VERY hard. Even 1U heatsinks are usually 60mm. However, this one meets your requirements:

    You must have a LOT of cool airflow through that heatsink or your system will overheat.

    You might also check out www.3dcool.com. They have a good selection of heatsinks and plenty of other goodies to boot.

    why would you spend MORE money at that site for what you could get CHEAPER at newegg?

    I didn't say he had to BUY anything there. It's a site specifically catering to the sort of thing he's looking for, whereas Newegg sells a much wider variety of parts. He could look on 3DCool, find something he likes, and then look around for other places selling the same part # for less. Haven't you ever done that?
