the P3-1GHz CPU has only moderate cooling requirements, however, I have some doubts whether that cheap heatsink will be sufficient. On the other side, the heatpipe-based solution seems like overkill.
I suggest that you go with a standard 1U cooler designed for 1GHz P3 CPUs, not necessarily one on the $5 price range, but nothing fancy either. There is a wide choice available, e.g. see my review here: http://www.anandtech.com/casecooling/showdoc.aspx?i=1571
The review is a bit old, but some of the models reviewed are still available. Any one of them should do.
