I was wondering which of these Alpha heatsinks would be better :
The PAL6035
The PEP66

Which would be better for the pentium 3 FCPGA and i would also like the differences between these 2 models.
PEP66- Larger fin area, fan orientented for slocket usage (i.e. fan officially sits on the side of the HS) However this can be modded so it sits up straight or as someone did stuck two fans one sucking the other blowing. There was an article on the front page about it (before xmas?).

PAL6035- Smaller sink, fan orientation the traditional way- ie sitting square on top of the sink.

The PEP is the better 'Sink, as it's larger and naturally has a bigger surface area.
