Decent result from home-made fandapter?

Chip is a P3 700 cB0 sl3xx week 35 on ASUS CUSL2-C
You know those GIANT drinks you can get at some fast-food and convenient stores with the rubbery thick plastic dome shaped tops? I took one and cut it to fit my heatsink and mounted an 80mm fan (41CFM I think)
on it used my existing fan clips secured through small slits in the plastic. Running at 117 FSB (takin it slow) temp never exceeded 40C running FAH and Sandra burn in wizard. It did hit 43C when running Soldier od Fortune with FAH minimized. This is two C lower than my now deceased celery 600 ran at 108 FSB (972MHz) @ 2.0V. The 700 was running at 1.65V -819MHz.
Do the P3's run hotter or cooler than the Cellys at default settings.
I'm installing a ThermalRight SK6 tomorrow. I was just curious whether this fandapter is doing as well as the 7500 RPM 50mm Step fan that it replaced.
