I have an Alpha heatsink/fan. I've had it for a little over a year on my celeron 500. I just got an 800 and I was wondering if the older Alpha will work on the newer cpus?

Socket 370 cooler
It will work but what is the model adn mobo it might not fit so you should check.
Got an Abit SA6.
I was wondering cuz I've seen some Heatsink crack CPU's and others that don't make good contact with the CPU. Thanks guys!

I'll hopefully make a journey to 1.2 GHZ!
