Default Very Large Heat sinks for Pentium 3 Tualtin vrs. small heat sinks with fans?

i snatchup up some pentium 3 tualatins i plan on using in a dual processor computer and i they came out of a dell server that just had very large heat sinks on top of them ..... now usually im used to seeing smaller heat sinks with fans on top of them and i was wondering if it would be ok to use these on my computer.... what makes me doubt it is that the dell case has 2 extra built in the case as to where mines just has the fan in the power supply.

Older CPU really only use heatsinks and seldom fans.See if you can modd you case by getting hole drill bits and drilling hole on the side where the heatsinks are and also have 1 120mm exhuast fan.2 80mm fans above the heatsinks.There is a tutorial in the case mod section of this forum that tells you how to do this.
