    Where can you buy a P3 CPU heatsink and fan?

    Where about on the Intarweb can you buy a CPU heatsink for an old Pentium 3 socket 370?

    Maplins have discontinued and Scan doesn't have anything!
    Dabs show items, but are out of stock (no suprise there!)

    So where can I get a server grade cpu fan and heatsink?

    Yes, they often say Socket A/Socket 370 on them (or in manufacturer/retailer web listings)

    I used a heatsink off an original P4 which fitted exactly and was much bigger
