    best celeron cooler

    I'm setting up a new system and
    am wondering what is the best cooler
    to use. It's a 366 Celeron ppga with
    a Powerleap Pl-PII slotket on an ASUS
    P2B-DS m/b. I'll want to o/c to 550
    but want to add a better cooler before
    I try. What's good, where can I get
    it, and how much ?
    This statement is a lie.

    I got the above cooler Alpha7HO from 3dfxcool. It is really good for the PPGA Celeron. My temperature dropped from 43deg to 36 degrees. I definately recommend it. It costs $30. If you want anything better that this you need to buy a Peltier (Thermoelectric cooler) which will run you $$$+

    Thanks. I'll check it out.
    Also, I've seen people decoding the info on the chip, which batch, how good o/c able etc.
    Where can that info be found ??

    My Celeron 366 info:
    Batch # L9150523
    MM# 821011
    version # 726928-002
    Pack date 5-14-1999

    Can anyone help me out with the info ??

    The first alphanumeric symbol is an L meaning
    that it is a Malaysian chip, the alphanumeric
    symbol is the 9 which is the year it was made.
    The next two digits are combined to tell you
    the week your chip was manufactured, yours
    being the 15th week, which is when the yields
    started getting very good across the board.
    The last four numbers , and i could be wrong,
    but I believe they indicate production number
    of that week.

    Hope this helps.
