@dexvx: nice Athlon 1GHz 😁
I got one too, so can finish collecting slot A platform.
Nice, unfortunately, since mine was HP OEM, it only has a somewhat large heatsink. Hard to install a fan because it will get very close to the memory sockets.
I think the classic Athlon (Orion core) 1GHz is much rarer. I was at a recycler and saw an Athlon 700 MHz (Pluto, fastest of that core). May pick it up if it's still there next time.
I've been searching for a 1Ghz Slot-A Athlon Thunderbird (with the full speed cache) for many years now.. I haven't actually seen one actually for sale anywhere since right about when they came out new originally and the 3-5 years after that then they sort of all disappeared. Well rather, I did see one on ebay once for $600.. but that doesn't really count.
