I have a PIII 733 which I purchased from a friend who parted out a Dell. The processor only has a heatsink and no fan. I am running an ASUS P3v4X mb and getting temps over 50C and I am concerned that with out a fan on the processor it is only a matter of time before it is fried.

I need to know how to remove the factory heatsink from the processor and then I need to know which heatsink and fan combination I should put on it.

All help will graciously excepted.
