Alpha P3125 can be used on any P3 or slot1 Celeron. If you want
to use it on an Athlon, you must get the P7125 version witch
is a P3125 modified to fit the Athlon. The heatsink is held
together with screws instead of clips. It takes a little longer
to install, but once it's done, it's literally impossible for
the heatsink to fall off the processor. Also, a detailed installation
guide is supplied with the kit.
I would have to say that the Alpha has a slight advantage over
the Globalwin in terms of features. The copper embedded plate
and the aluminum ducking plate are nice features that give the
Alpha an edge over the VOS32. But, in the end, only the heatsink's
performance will tell us whether it's worth it or not.
you can get a VOS32 for about $30, while the Alpha is about
$50. So Globalwin clearly wins the price category for its smaller
price tag. The VOS32 came with a Y adapter for the fans but
no grill. For the Alpha, it's a little complicated, depending
on where you buy it, it could come with any type of fans and
may have some grills. The prices range from $45 to $55 so shop
around to see which store has the best deal. Both units came
with a tube of thermal paste.
