After what I've heard I can't mount a PEP66 on my motheboard (ABIT BX133-RAID) without having to move the fan position, and therefore make it's cooling effectiveness not as good as it could be. So therefore I was thinking of buying the PAL6035, which is smaller. But now I want to know what temps you are getting, what you have heard about it.. and a site with a review would be really good
The alpha PAL6035 is a beauty, pretty damn impresed myself. I use one on my PIII-850 which is overclocked to 1003Mhz and the temps idle are between 32-34 and 41-43 under max load, I put a high powered fan on the top of it set to suck air off of the heatsink (the fan is a Pico electric 4600RPM) but the stock fan should do fine. These things are great, Alpha is the best in my opinion.
I just got my Alpha PAL6035 and tried to put it on my Abit KT7 Raid mb. It didnt fit, I had to grind down part of the fan frame to get it to fit properly. The grinding was to the fan from only not the fan blades. I did not remove the "legs" off of the cpu, should I have? My temps have gone up to 50 and 51 celcius. The fan rpms are at 7000 and system temp is at 24 celcius.
