And I talk from experience.

I own just about all the top shelf coolers you can imagine and the performance of this unit is pathetic.

To stress test a cooler you take the most tough CPU to cool,I name the AMD T-Bird 1.4GHz(you may OC to 1.5GHz)and then you strap the cooler.Run Quake 3 or Unreal(my fave stress test)and run demo with 16 players duking it out.
After 15 minutes you monitor the temp,and compare to other collers.

All in all the ThermalRight,ThermoEngeine coolers are my fave.With the Delta AFB0612EH(known as Blck Label)these give great performance.The ThermoEngeine is the king of light coolers.

And if you want more punch and dont mind the extra costtoo much take the Swiftech MC462 with the awesome(bit noisy as hell)Delta 80mm (call it HUGE LABEL,lol)68cfm fan!You are on your way to take the first place as far as forced air coolers go.

The Alpha PEP66/Delta BL combo is a great cooler,too.And the TaiSol forged al/copper bottom insert with the Delta BL is yet another worthy alternative.

For a nice looking compact(heavy)cooler for your Duron and P3 the CopperORB from Thermaltake is ok.Just stay away from the Orb,Chrome Orb and "Super"Orb as they give poor performance when compared to the CopperOrb(also called Dragon Orb/with cfm fan on top!)

So there you have it.

I use the Swiftech MC462(Athlon 1.33Ghz@1.5GHz) with the Delta 80mm 68 cfm fan!He he its a ok.My second system(P3 700@1015)has the ThermoEngeine/Delta BL.All cool,all safe.

I'm suprised you can only go to 1.5ghz, or is that just the nice round number you were aiming for? You don't need the power of the swiftec to oc a 1.33 to 1.5, you could easily do it with a lower end cooler. Have you tried the noise killer silverado? Super quiet and very good cooling according to tomshardware.
