XP 1900 + Alpha 6035/Delta = possible?
Maybe a dumb question, but will my old alpha work with the XP part? I got a new TT volcano 7 HSF with the XP, but it vibrates like hell. So i was thinking, why not use the old screamer for that (I actually find the low-tuned hum of the TT HSF more annoying than the Delta's high-pitched scream )... Did anybody try that? I would expect to see a little better performance than with the Tbird, since the XP is thermally more efficient, but, like i said, i'm not sure if the Alpha HSF is compatible with the XP part...

It's good to be back again
About the PAL6035 - almost all those "old" coolers, that work fine on the Tbirds WILL work fine with the Palominos...
I got one PEP66, which works fine on my XP1600+, a little modified for a better airflow and an "on-top" fan.

Yes, it should be ok. I think AMDnut actually has a XP + 6035 combo so he can tell you for sure.
Radeon 8500? NO!
SiS 6326 8MB?! OH YEAH!!! (Mweheheh...)

Thanx! I had a feeling it would work, i just wasn't sure if the XP core was bigger or not (i know it's bigger L x W, wasn't sure 'bout the height) - I wouldn't want to crush my XP core, ya know...

Yes, it will work fine!
I'm actually running the Vantec 6035 on the XP chip because I needed the ALPHA PAL6035 to keep my email@example.com/1.85v TBird cool!
It is harder to keep the old TBird cool than it is to keep the XP chip cool. I am running the Delta fan on the ALPHA though. I have ran the ALPHA on the XP for comparison, and it keeps up with the Vantec copper cooler that I'm using now. A few tricks though:
I have the fan sucking air away from the base
I'm using a Delta fan
The ALPHA has been lapped nicely
I'm using Radio Shack thermal grease (the white stuff)
The ALPHA should work fine for you.....
