If anyone's interested, I finished testing the six P233MMX CPUs: P55c at Overclocked to 300mhz?

On topic:

Thinkpad 600 with a DVD drive, 288MB RAM and a PII 233 (I downgraded it on purpose from a PII 300).

I have a Thinkpad 755C that has 20MB RAM and a 340MB HDD running 95B on it.... I got it almost 10 years ago for free 😀
I recently got a 10GB Travelstar drive from some scraps, I still need to see if it will work with it

I also got a T40 last year... I upgraded it to a Pentium M 745, a Japanese market IBM OEM Atheros A/B/G WLAN card, and upgraded to 1.25GB RAM.... the little 40GB Travelstar drive works amazingly fast! Since it's so old, it runs WinTPC on it and works pretty good (better than XP)

mine is upgraded to the max 4MB DIP RAM like yours 😀

That look like a AMD PLCC version N80L286-12 or 16Mhz with possable no 80287 coprocessor but it hard make out the chip below it.

I dont think i has a co-processor either.. That black dip socket right near the PSU plugs, i guess is for the co-processor..

Few days ago i bought this board too:

Kouwell-KW-241. It has also a 12mhz processor on it..

What on the chip just below the CPU which just tab smaller?, Dose say N80C287-12 on it if so then that co-processor they can look just a CPU package.

on the motherboard with teh G2 chipset, the open socket is for the 287. the 40-pin dip chip with the white sticker is your keyboard bios. The suntaq, the 287 socket is still near the cpu, and it is close to the power socket in that case.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

You know there are PLCC version of the co-processor which should be 44 pin but with all the off wall stuff done back in day you never know.
Usedly you only see co-processor in 40 pin CDIP or PDIP.
I think it say below CPU say Suntac but I can't really tell becuase ligth flash mask it thatt whay I was asking.

True, off-the-wall stuff can be encountered. However, one thing you will absolutely never see on a consumer-class 286 or 386 board, is a soldered-on coprocessor.

It's not retro and I didn't buy it but I was a friend gave me his iPhone 3GS. I don't have AT&T for my phone service and there's no SIM card but it has wifi and I was able to copy my music to it so it's pretty much an iPod Touch for me.

Got a Freeway FW-6400GX/150/WS board. It's a slot-1/slot-2 uniprocessor board that supports up to 150mhz FSB. Also got a P2 Xeon 450mhz ES with it and a couple sets of quad Xeon board brackets. 😁

Pics of my actual board to follow when I receive it.

Crimson Tide - EVGA 1000P2; ASUS Z10PE-D8 WS; 2x E5-2697 v3 14C 3.8 GHz on all cores (All core hack); 64GB Samsung DDR4-2133 ECC
EVGA 1080 Ti FTW3; EVGA 750 Ti SC; Sound Blaster Z

That is pretty sweet. I didn't know such a thing existed.

I'd actually forgotten all about Freeway... I wonder what happened to them. They had some really cool motherboards during the PII/PIII era, but pretty much disappeared after that.

I think all the manufacturers produced far more interesting boards back in the P2/P3 era than they do now. I think A-Trend/Freeway went out of business sometime ago.

I also got a stick of PC150 with it as well. It's only 256mb, but it should still be loads of fun to play with. Maybe I'll get lucky one day and get my hands on a full set of 4 sticks.
