I'm sure you alway's hear 'what's a good fan', but since I'm looking for one for a slot processor, you might have some suggestions.
I'm running just stock on the machine (CoolerMaster) and my temps are high compared to the reports I read on faster processors that mine.
I've read that Global Win has a H/S and dual fans for my P-3 and there's a Golden Orb too.
I would be gratefull for your idea's.
I've got:
P-3, 500MHz, slot 1, (no o/c).
1 intake fan, 1 blower in a PCI slot, 1 exhaust from P/S.

Is your processor a Katmai? If so, it won't overclock that good and there's no reason for it to be really cooled. But the best heatsink for a slot 1 is the:

Alpha P3125

The other ones aren't that good at all from the stock.

If the Alpha is too expensive for your taste, try a GlobalWin VOS32. If you're not going to overclcok, a Golden Orb will suffice

only like 2 speeds of P3 Slot 1's were Coppermines, i think 700 and 800. The rest were Katmai Slot 1s (350 - 700mhz), or CUmine s370's.
