There are a zillion 60mm heatsink/fan units. The best almost invariably work well because a Delta 38 60mm fan is part of the package. Offhand, I think it's a good idea to avoid big HS's that use 80mm fans. They are the best, but this is a PIIIE, not a K7.

www.dansdata.com has reviews of many HSF's. www.overclockers.com has a nice and accurate list of HSF reviews. I personally like Vantec's CCK-6035D. Reasonable price, good performance. But, there are a hundred others that work as well.

Trust me on this one... Stay away from anything reviews label as loud or even moderate noise levels. Keep in mind that most HSF reviews are geared toward the overclockers, and the balance of performance to acceptable noise levels can be inhuman!!.

7000 & 8000 rpm fans are awesome performers but are unbearable. Go with a quiet solution. I label my millenium glaciator as barely tolerable for noise level, but with excellent cooling. (I don't know if they work on intels tho.)

The Millennium Glaciator works fine on PPGA Celeron's. Never such cool temps has my olde C366 seen!

I seriously doubt that the Glaciator(1) has a problem with C2's and PIIIE's.

Link is down my friend. But if they have an AX-7 get that. Everyone seems to be raving about it.

Maybe it's time for me to get one.

The original glaciator is sold out. The newer G2 is now only $30

http://www.millennium-thermal.com/start.htm

Since you are looking for low cost, the AX-7 is not for you. The lowest price I've seen is 25 without a fan. With a decent fan + shipping, you are looking at $35-40.

If I might ask, what is the price range you are considering? Almost anything would be an improvement to the stock cooler. I guess the real question is "how much better" makes it worth the trouble in the first place.

That's actually a lot more than I thought you'd say. You are right on the edge to go with the glaciator2 or even an AX7 with a cheap fan. Both will drop your temps significantly, keep the noise level bearable, and also be excellent coolers for AMD socket A's, should you choose that path.

The direct result will be cooler CPU temps.. However, I am not sure how much it will improve your overclock potential, with a P3. To that, I defer to the Intel experts.

The AX-7 is made by Thermalright. I urge you to avoid the AX-7, only because it's a very large HS that needs a good deal of clear "real estate" around the Socket 370. If you can confirm that your mainboard does have enough space before buying it, by all means, go with the AX-7!

HAHAH As you can tell, SteveI is well known in the forums for his knowledge.

I hope you have found a good HS at a good price.

The Glaciator does indeed work well with a FCPGA PIII! I use it - and like it! If you give the fan 7 volts instead of 12 it won't perform as well, but it will for sure be a lot quieter...
