    ALPHA PEP 66, worth it for an athlon?

    is it?

    the Thunderbird 1ghz on an abit kt-7?

    I would have to modify the heatsink sligtly to have the fan on the top.. does it cool better than the PAL 6035?

    Nothing like BS!

    Go there and have fun!

    The regular PEP66 has a 60x25mm fan and does not fit on most Socket A boards without modifications. They make a version for Socket a that uses a low profile fan (I think a 60x10mm fan) that puts out a lot less air flow and hurt the performance a lot. With the dsame fan though the pep66 will cool slightly better.

    Yes, if you modify PEP66 & allow a (Delta 25x60mm) fan to be mounted on top; instead of using a slimline Delta 10x60mm fan (~22cfm), it will outform both PAL6035 & GlobalWIN FOP38 on a TBird.
