Cooling Poll for a P3 800
I am interested in getting a little more out of my P3 800 100 mhz fsb fcgpa cpu. What is a good choice for a cpu cooler? Where is a good spot to order online?

There are quite a few good coolers for that chip. However, running it in a slocket converter can cause some issues, because big heatsinks can wiegh quite a bit. Some motherboards come with a plastic support on them for this issue. If yours doesn't, the be a little picky.
The Golden Orb and Chrome Orb are supposed to fit on that chip, even though they are made for the Duron/Tbird. However, since you are running on a slocket, it may not work 100% for you.
If you goto the steals and deals forum, there are some links in there for cooling hardware. 3dfxcool.com and 2cooltek.com were two of them mentioned.
And, of course, no processor cooler can be efficient if your case is an oven. Meaning, if you have this in a mini tower case with no or only one case fan, then overclocking is not reccomended. You need good air flow in your case to get the best results.
What size is your case? maybe consider cable rounding to provide better airflow? No use in blowing around thehot air that is expelled from your CPU
You can find a comprehensive cooler review over @ Toms Hardware http://www6.tomshardware.com/cpu/00q4/001211/
The GlobalWin FOP range is not too heavy to run on a slocket (speaking from experience). They are reasonably priced, too. However, they are as effective as they are NOISY, so if you have a desktop box, or have a tower on your desk, it may get irritating!
