P Alpha: Three-hole Base for a Perfect Fit
On the positive side, the P Alpha is notable for its three-hole base for installation on the processor socket. If one lug on the CPU socket breaks, then the other two hold it in place. Apart from that, users should steer clear of this cooler with its poor cooling efficiency. The fan is much too small in relation to the heat sink, they skimped on the material, and the contact area to the CPU is all but optimal. In short: It's a non-descript cooler with an extremely loud fan, unsuitable for overclockers or for fast processors.
