35W tdp x2 3800. Depending on the actual price, i might consider changing my regular x2 3800.

Is there more information available on this 35W part?

Thats nice. THe good old days. Well this setup will be running something faster then the current celeron (1700+ OC'd). I really miss the old days (outside the performace obviously).

It brings possibilities. Yes. Unfortunately I don't have access to manufacturing equipment, hence a conversion kit maybe ;)

We'll see. Or rather you will :)

I probably have to agree with GamingGod. Since this is just an aluminum heatsink, there is no chance it would preform as good as 7000alcu. But then again, it has no problems with a 57W radeon 9700 pro so a 2400+ (53.7W typical 68.3W max)AMD Cpu should be withing range of cooling. One way it to try. ...

Well, i'm going to try this on one of my athlon systems, once my board comes back from RMA. Till then, this is just to see if it even works.

As for extremely low height computer... No, not really. Just wanted to see it work, plus its quiet :)

Well, for now I had to unscrew the plastic shroud so i could mount the heatsink on the cpu. Once i find a better way to mount it, the unit will be reasembled. As i mentioned, temperatures have improved slightly. high speed : 42*C Low speed : 49*C But then this CPU only produces about 20W (max 25W).

Well for your enjoyment. VGA silencer cooling my celeron sortof. The problem is mounting of course :). I'm considering of getting a block of copper so i can mount the vga silencer to it and then mount that to the board. Somehow, since there is no 4 hole mount on socket 370 The second pic shows that ...

Well, risked it. 12V ok. As for frying... Well the board was free along with the chip. Its semi dead. So no worries there about frying that. The VGA silencer, I payed for. :) First impressions of using the VGA silencer to cool the CPU... Tricky. Since there is no way to mount it... Yet. I have to us...

VGA Silencer CPU cooling :)

Well going to start my first experiment, but I need to know how much power would the fan require. NOt shure how much Radeon97 provides. I'm going for full 12V, but the last thing i want to do is fry the fan.

Well, i'm not shure what to say. One thing for shure is that to really know if it can even compete to the 7000A-AlCu or Cu, is to wait for more reviews.

And RPM doesn't translate directly to noise. Since this is a non standard fan.

Well, the idea of the socket 754 being obsolete in a few months is incorrect. THe socket will live for some time to come. It will be AMD's entry level single channel setup. All chips on the 939 will have dual channel support. (not much of a difference in performace, yet) AMD 64 (939) will be dual ch...

IF you are in Winnipeg. Try Coreys Computing. But you are not going to save any money. Price cu $67.99 alcu $77.99. So I don't think you'll save much by going local :)

Another thing you might try is to seperate the heatpipes on the heatsink side. This way it would give more cooling area per each heatpipe. Currently in your setup, you are sharing the same copper blocks and region of the heatsink for both heatpipes. Just a thought.
