Can anybody recommend the best Heatsink and fan for a AMD K6-2 533 mhz processor.

I currently have a 366mhz processor, but acquired the 533mhz through a friend and have no idea whether my present heatsink and fan will be adequate enough???  

How can you tell??

Cheers,

Pete

From AMD's recommended list, I would choose one of the GlobalWin heatsink/fan combos.

http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/ProductInformation/0,,30_118_1217_1101^1109,00.html

You may not find the exact model listed, as this list is quite old, but the GLobalWin site shows the products that are suited for socket 7 and newer processors, and would work fine for your K6-2.
