I'm I the only old fart that used PC's from back from the 90s?
Only thing I have left are slockets, and some Pentium's or something. I also have (4) 32 pin ram?, 200mhz p200?, and a mb. It works.....

How many other sites are you using?

It's funny that you're looking for this cooler since I just saw a few being sold by a local shop that refurbishes and resells old tech. They are only open on Thursdays (for some weird reason) so I will check for this exact model for you next Thursday.

I bought one of these direct from Alpha back in the day. Ran my 300A @ 450. :) I don't know if I still have that thing. Good times.

Yeah, it's a weird situation. They refurbish and resell parts from companies nearby (primarily IBM) as they get rid of stuff. They visit my factory once a week (on Thursdays) to sell stuff. I actually picked up a Dell u2410 (sans the monitor stand) for $15, so the items are usually pretty good on price.

I should check if they have an actual store... I'll keep you updated either way though!

I have that one in my hardware archive/museum of yore. I will dig in my plastic storage boxes for it. I'll post a pic of it once I find it, Eclypse. I think I bought it in late 99 or early 2000.

Naw.. never owned one of those.. think the highest p3 I had was a 700mhz.

Going to put it on a p3 1000mhz CPU though :). Right now it just has a passive heatsink.

Just want what I once had for cooling even though it was super loud!

If I was smart I'd just figure out a custom water block for it but that would'nt be right for the period.

Never OCed my Celerons or P2/3 so can't help you. But nice nostalgia here. That is a monster...good luck. Maybe you should offer an actual specified reward get people motivated to check their basements, sheds, attics, land fills etc. ;).

Trust me I wanted to originally. Wife said no.

It retailed for $50 back in 2003. I know and dont expect anyone to want to be bothered for a tiny 15-30 dollar sale. Who would?

$50 for a full in tact heatsink.

I'll take a quick look. I moved and pared down everything I had so I may not have anymore left. As for the guy looking for a 1.13 tulation I know I had at least two on a dual board I'll look and see if I have any.

Throwing a bump in for Alpha Cool! My buddy had a socket 7 Dragon Orb and gave it to me; I couldn't stand the racket, so I went looking and ended up with the Alpha PAL8045 with a custom fan that I can't remember now (want to say undervolted Papst or something...). I loved that hex pin cooler! I had a Arctic 7 on my socket 775 and Scythe SCINF-1000 on my socket 1366, so it turned me onto low noise coolers with high performance!

Alpha PAL8045

Oh the memories BUMP.

Found my email thread on P3 OC'ing with Alpha PEP66 w/ a 55w peltier, 80mm Panaflow, and AS... I'll look for pics after looking through a few more boxes. Pretty sure I sold it with the system though.
