3D Spotlight heeft een review gepost van de 3DfxCool Alpha P3 125 cooler. De reviewer is er erg te spreken over en benoemd hem tot beste luchtkoeler voor je PIII van het moment.
The Alpha P3125 is an excellently made cooler. If you are willing to give up $55 of your hard earned dollars for the unit you won’t be disappointed with how well it does perform.
The cooler can increase the life of your CPU by keeping it cooler than what you would get with anything else and it can be used with some of the future P3 CPUs. The Alpha P3125 allowed me to overclock my CPU to 600MHz with only a core voltage of 2.0 volts.
Many people that I have seen with Pentium 3 450 SL37Cs were only able to get to 600MHz, but they had to use a little bit higher voltage level. The actual installation of the cooler is easy. Removing the stock unit is a little different though. If you were willing to pay $55 for the Alpha P3125, it would also be a good idea to know how to properly remove the stock unit, so that you don’t also end up with a $150 to $600 dead CPU. Overall, the Alpha P3125 does what it is supposed to do and that is to be the best air-cooling unit for the Pentium III.
