Oem Compaq/HP units had some great aluminum, sometimes copper core heatsinks with the backplate + screw in design. If you fan find a full Dell kit with the bracket, backplate, + weird green plastic clips they have alot of potential, especially the heat piped XPS coolers. Stock 478 Intel Prescott coolers are cheap and absolute overkill for any Willamette or Northwood cores.

Main pc: Asus ROG laptop. I7-6700HQ, GTX 960M 4gb, 16gb DDR4.

anyone with a lot of money want to buy and try
if the mod can be done to the Be Quiet! Pure rock 2 ?

It sure looks like the mounting is the same or very similar to version 1:

So I haven't tried, but I'd say its the same stuff and moddable in the same way.

with copper base and plastic bed i have only seen part number 304731-001

i don´t like plastic clips on the cooler and on the base. heat degrades plastic, i have seen how the legs break.
Same with the square that goes to the motherboard.

I did see a cooler made by coolermaster that was made probably for dell, which has a metal backplate and screw design. but it was not copper. but i might get that one since i know it will last forever

The Mugen 2 has some adapter parts which are I think needed to make it work on s478.

It comes with a bunch of adapters in the box to match whichever system your using it with, it wasn't a separate kit if that's what your thinking?
As long as the box is unopened or advertised as complete then you should be fine
