what CPU do you mean by "Pentium Duo"?
If it's dual core Pentium 4: Forget it. A standard passive heatsink (folded fin or not) will not be powerful enough to cool it. Even with elaborate heatpipe-based solutions, passive cooling of dual core P4s is quite a challenge.
If it's Core Duo: This CPU has moderate cooling requirements and high maximum temperature. It can be cooled with a good passive heatsink; however, you might have trouble finding large coolers for desktops that are designed for the Core Duo.
