Show off a CPU from your collection

Postby mwd » Sat Jan 02, 2016 9:51 pm

So I thought I should get the ball rolling. Show off a CPU from your collection and why you think it is cool.

Today is my new in box Pentium 66 SX950, this one does not have the FDIV bug but it is unused and looks great.

I have a few other socket 4 pentiums but none have the "Intel Pentium" logo still visible (or at least in good condition).

Match that raise it with NEW badass x8 pack

These are basically your mobile processors start @ 1.6volties & enough headroom for 50% OC
Very cool in they're day. Still can purchase new

LoL I spot a heap of processors under the bubblewrap ;) You are in trouble if I go to one of my drawers.
Will be a long night.

Rare cpu collecting is not my thing. Collecting majority of them before they all disappear is. LoL

An old pic of mine. As mostly all in machines.
Pair of sequenced serial Pro's. Hope I had a hand in US recyclers
respecting these from many previous discussions

Another P Pro saved from the recyclers. Though it wasn't cheap. This one is a 150/256k to join its sibling in the Vectra. Just need a heat sink for it

Very nice, love the Pentium Pros.

Today for me is an AMD K5! I wouldn't mind building a K5 machine one day...

Nice find avalanche, are they all K6 III+ 400's?

I love the look of the Pentium Pros too, cant find a motherboard to match then these days though :(

I have an Pentium 2 overdrive socket 8 CPU 333mhz but have never been able to locate a Socket 8 board for it. I think these are pretty rare now, I've also got a few 1.4GHZ P3's I saved from some servers being binned.

I don't often buy retro gear these days. My most recent purchase was early last year. The middle CPU is an older purchase. I'm sure there's another one out there but it appears I have the only Stepping 1 Revision 3 Cyrix CPU to have been reported and it came from this crude little shop in Osaka, Japan.

Cyrix 5x86 120MHz ( unknown stepping, revision)
Cyrix 5x86 120MHz (stepping 1 revision 3)
Cyrix 5x86 (unmarked and unknown)

I've got quite a bit of kit. I'll have to open the stash and check sometime. Most of the stuff I actually value is socket 3.

Bought this a while back.

NOS Cyrix? Couldn't help myself! Even if it's more VIA than Cyrix... :lol:
