Re: Pentium PRO?

Knowing the strength of the parts I 3D print in PLA, I wouldn't dare using that kind of adapter to be honest . I mean, yes... but I think it is more designed for the Intel oem P4 heatsink. just run a test print for fitment - then make a solid one out of ABS. Should be fine if you arent going to …

Re: Pentium PRO?

I see some cooling discussion here, so I'm just going to add a link to a Socket 478 adapter that would help if you got access to a 3D printer: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:6109363 Ok... that's cool. *RIMSHOT* I am 100% going to try that. I have an xp-120 that would look so stupid on such an …

The only right answer is to which is "better" is whatever blows your skirt up, little girl. Daddy likes gold, and for the longest time, …

Re: Pentium PRO?

On a side note, are there any available heatsinks for the Pentium Pros still available or is it even more painful to find than mainboards/CPUs? I still have 2 black PPro 1MB around....had a dual-socket Iwill DP6NS system for years. Shoot me a PM - I have some OEM dual-fan ones knocking about. But I …

Re: Pentium PRO?

I obtained an intel pentium pro from a random assorted box of cpus i bought a while back and ever since i got the processor it has just been sitting on my shelf as a shelf piece. i was wondering if anyone here has had any experience using these processors, is it worth spending the money on a socket …
