"Okay, now that you have seen what they look like, let me tell you a little story. The quality of the Alpha's is first rate, however, sometimes people report that the plastic feet are too long and the heat sink doesn't make contact with the core, or it mounts kinda crooked. First off, I am not the only person to have this problem. A simple solution is to sand down the plastic feet a little in a similar manner that you would "lap" a CPU. This worked for me and my PEP66, at least it was a lot better than it was before I sanded the feet some. But even afterwards I had to put a good amount of thermal grease on to be sure that full contact was made. So one day I sanded it some more and accidentally sanded too much, and with the Alpha's clip not being the strongest, it would easily wobble when it was mounted."
