Still, untested and certainly dead is two different things. The hope that it may be a properly working piece includes the equal amount of despair ;) It's unethical to sell it as untested again after collapsing its wave function, even if the next owner doesn't care about it being Schrödinger's CPU.
Shame on us, doomed from the start

I would like to have one for my collection but at this price I can't afford it. Especially since I branched into collecting more esoteric stuff like Alpha systems. Those demand a lot of money for restoration.

Erf already bought two k5 200 in September...
That would really be unwise...
If it doesn't find a buyer quickly I'll obviously have to take it :(

A few AMD CPUs

Slot Athlons

IMG_20181017_230158611.jpg
The K5s

And a trio of FX 57s


Found the 2 K5 in september.
The 3 FX 57 in july.
Already had 3 of the slots, found the fourth this summer too.
Somehow those things fly in groups, after looking for them for years !

Haha, sure thing.
But I'm afraid I'm a multi-classed junkie :

Some intel NIB/CIB


Well according to my files, 142 AMD processors, 156 Intel processors.
Also 9 cyris, 5 IBM, 2 ST, 3 UMC.
So not so high after all. But good quality stuff !

I'll probably sell all my sealed boxed components (not that many after all). I'm sort of a collector but mostly a user. But don't want to break the seal and I already have the same bare parts.

Boxed items are great, but the storage space required is 4-fold. At one point in the past, I just said to hell with it, and threw out all the boxes and kept the parts. That was 17 years ago. I'm slowly holding onto boxes again until the point in which my closet won't close, then who knows.

Well appart for the 980X, those CPU boxes are not too big.
The problem is more on the Videocard and motherboard side. Also the consoles.
It's starting to crawl outside the cupboards here.
Got 3 MSI lightning boxes at my feet haha (580GTX, 6970, 7970), as well as a sega saturn and a xbox 360 ...

My wife stopped entering this room some time ago :D

Many retail boxes can be a kind of compacted to save space. I mean unglued and flattened. Some boxes have a lot of free space inside which can be utilised to store related parts.

That is, in fact, what I did 17 years ago. I kept them compacted for a 1 year, then thought to myself, "this is silly - throw them away". Back then, I never anticipated there would be such value in boxed items.
