Hey all, I'm currently looking at some heatsinks for the 1266 Tualatins in my Supermicro P3TDDE, and I've just got a real simple question. I'm not very familiar with the IHS P3's in regards to coolers, and on Ebay I came across some Cooler Master CM-MF370 heatsinks and was just wondering if these would play nicely with the extra height from the IHS. Last thing I want to do is break the tabs on the socket trying to mount them because the metal bracket isn't meant for the extra height or some nonsense like that. 😜

That cooler is for FC-PGA and others without the IHS, so wouldn't be suitable, unless you are willing and able to bend the clip so that it can cope with the extra height.

First of all, that's not Socket 370 cooler, but Socket A/370 cooler. So it may or may not be compatible. It's hard to say without exact model number. I would recommend Titan TTC-D5TB or something similar, it has universal mounting clip for any Socket 7/370/A CPU.

The Cooler Master DP5-5G11A is rated for 1.4 GHz Tualatins and I have two of these in my twin Tully rig.

ETA: I posted a picture of them in operation in this thread: Dual Tualatin 1.4 GHz build - motherboard selection

Any socket 7 cooler will sit comfortably on a tualatin CPU.

Socket 7 coolers are not suitable for Tualatins anyway due to their relatively lackluster cooling performance.

I have no idea why I wrote socket 7. What I meant to write was socket A. Here's what I use for my tualatin builds:

Could've been a brainfart, no man overboard 😜

Those look pretty formidable for any Tualatin btw 😀

Yeah, be careful what you say on a thread like this. You don't want people to fry their systems or break their sockets/CPUs because of faulty advice.

They're aluminium heatsinks with a copper core and an 80mm fan, made by a taiwanese (or chinese?) company named Titan. These were very popular in my country in the socket A days so they're pretty easy to find and dirt cheap. You can find almost identical coolers on aliexpress.

Well I've certainly done worse to this poor system, so that seems pretty reasonable to me.

Thanks f or the input, everyone. 😜
