    where to get a good fan for my new PIII

    I gona get a PIII 800b slot1. it's an OEM. So which cooling fan should be good for this baby? show me where if you could.
    I will overclock, here is my spec:
    Asus P3V4X. Micron PC133 256mb. Dimond Viper Ultra.
    With this spec, how fast can I go?
    or if I get a better video card like gefore2, then how fast can i go?

    Here http://www.millisec.com/ or here http://2cooltek.safeshopper.com/index.htm?57073 or here http://www.coldcpu.com/

    or even here http://www.plycon.com/


    For a slot one P3 I would go with this...

    Alpha 3125s

    I too would recommend the P3125. What I don't recommend though is the combination in which you get the Delta fans. At 46.5 dba it is just unbearable. I'd recommend quieter fans.

    The PAL7125 is for the Slot A Athlons, not for the Slot 1 PIIIs.

    tat143, if it's not too late, seriously reconsider getting the 800EB (6.0 x 133MHz). Instead get the 800E (8.0 x 100MHz). With the E you get a FAR better clocking possibility with it's lower initial FSB speed.

    to S_klass.
    I got this one http://www.upgradeplanet.com/shop/pr...74Q3KP2CV9PQE.
    I don't know whether the link will take you there, but they claim the CPU is PIII 800B 133MHz 256K. Is it the one you been talking about.
    I still wonder how fast can I go with my spec above.
    Help me guys, I am rookie.
    Thanks

    I meant the P3125 with dual deltas for $53.

    The 800b you are referring to is offically called the PIII 800EB. Those feature official 133MHz FSB speeds. But since the yields on the PIII production lines are so similar, the 800E (100MHz FSB) stands an excellent chance of doing 124+MHz FSB.

    If you are asking me for an opinion. I would suggest you buy a PIII 700E or 750E instead of the 800E. Why? Those 2 chips hit the magic 133MHz FSB far more frequently then the 800 does.

    Let's lay the numbers on the line.

    PIII 700E (100MHz default) = 7.0 x 100
    PIII 700 @ 133MHz FSB = 931MHz (High Probability)

    PIII 750E (100MHz default) = 7.5 x 100
    PIII 750 @ 133MHz FSB = 998MHz (Good - High Probability)

    PIII 800E (100MHz default) = 8.0 x 100
    PIII 800 @ 124MHz FSB = 992MHz (Good Probability)

    PIII 800E (100MHz default) = 8.0 x 100
    PIII 800 @ 133MHz FSB = 1064MHz (Average Probability)

    PIII 850E (100MHz default) = 8.5 x 100
    PIII 850 @ 133MHz FSB = 1130MHz (Low Probability)

    If you want a Good - High percentage overclock vs a low probability overclock, you would see that the PIII 750 is a better choice. Those numbers are good on aircooling. Of course this is juz MHO but I doubt many here will disagree.
