socket 370 and celeron

I have a VIA socket 370 micro ATX. The manual says it supports P3 (FC-PGA & FC-PGA2) and Celeron FC-PGA. So
I got a Celeron FC-PGA at 1GHz/100MHz bus. The processor
fit fine but the heat sink is too large. Is it possible to
use a different heatsink that is smaller? Any help is appreciated. Thanks--Laura

  1. You mean the heat sink is hitting some resistors that surround the CPU socket? Yes, it's prefectly OK to get a different heatsink that fits better.
