its a P3 1100, i got a stock 40mm fan off a P2 heatsink and glued it into the laptop heatpipe its enough to stop the laptop rebooting and the customer asked the famous question "I need it fixing today, is there anything you can do without the correct spares ?"
i saw "cpu cooler" and thought you were looking for a replacement heatsink. nothing wrong with adding fans, i suppose. but did you try removing the heatpipe deal, cleaning it, and applying some fresh as3? that should help too.
hehe, as its a P3 coppermine CPU, the heatpipe does have an offset fan to help move the air over the heatsink, but with it being a laptop the standard 40mm fan is tryin to push the air down, when the former fan pushed air sideways. anyway, the little bit of air i generated is enough to survive sisoft on multimedia benchmark 10 times
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
