Right. Thanks for reminding me about those, I wonder if I could use one on the T2P4 P54i single plane boards I've got somewhere when they surface. Though since I've got the P55i split plane version around somewhere also I should sit them side by side and see if I can just add components. I think I vaguely recall checking near 2 decades back and it was too different.

Unicorn herding operations are proceeding, but all the totes of hens teeth and barrels of rocking horse poop give them plenty of hiding spots.

Just received 2 nice SL7AA 3.2Ghz Pentium extreme Edition Sockel 478 CPUs.
I was a bit afraid since i couldnt track the parcel for almost a week.

Very nice! And with the current prices on those, I'd be worried too 😀

Please use the "quote" option if asking questions to what I write - it will really up the chances of me noticing 😀

Got my self another Xbox360 250gb. With two original wireless controllers, one original wired controller and two gamestop controller. It came with 4 games (not in picture) that are in near mint condition, with only wear is on covers and of course it came with the PSU. I guess I got lucky, as the console is in cosmetically nearly new. No dust, one or two minor scratches and from non-smoker home. I paid 20 Euro plus shipping.

Got this board unexpectably for free
https://theretroweb.com/motherboards/s/asus-a7n266-vm

Thought it is dead, cause I've got it "probably non functional" and it didn't have any large capacitors. So I thought, who would remove capacitors from functional Asus board. So I've sent it with lots of non working boards to friend (electrowaste). It's because, he usually desolder some stuff he needs, and then, rest send it to electrowaste. He returned caps on the board, even despite the fact, I told him, it is probably dead, and to a suprise, board was fully functional with caps. I even didn't expect I get this board, so he returned it to me, with some other functional boards. What an unexpected suprise, didn't expected that. So lucky, I didn't throw it out directly, because I wanted at first, just to mix it up with non functional boards, and send it directly to electrowaste, but he was in my city, so I gave him the boards to desolder stuff from them, before take it to electrowaste.

Grabbed a bulk lot of CPUs that popped up, Originally wanted it for the AMD 5x86 CPUs but noticed there is a Blue Lightning in there along with a SX25 Overdrive.

I have been able to identify all of them aside from the two smallest

Intel 08486SX-25
Intel Pentium 120
Intel 486SX-25 Overdrive
Intel 08486DX-33
Blue Lightning DX2-66
2x AMD 5x86-P75 AMD-X5-133ADW

The smallest Im going to assume is possibly a 286 with the slightly larger one being a 386 of some kind, wont know till they get here.

Oh noes, the cap let the shmooo out 😁

My guess is an i386 (larger) and i387 (smaller). 😀

The sliglhtly larger one looks like it had a heat sink on it at one point, but I do like your way of thinking ..I could use a co processor.

Picked up few motherboards in the local flea market today, both pretty weird, but interesting:

One of them is Slot1 NMC-6BEX, Full ATX, has SB-Link, absolutely no info about it. Not sure if it's 440BX or EX, I like the green PCB tough.

Another is Socket 7, this is a really strange one. It has Intel 430HX PCI-Set, Integrated S3 Trio64V+ (Upgradable to 4MB), it has integrated Vibra16C sound chip, it is Full ATX format, but the power connector is AT. There are no SD-RAM slots, only 4 72pin ones. It also came with some ram and Intel Pentium MMX200 cpu in it. If it works, it may become a strong DOS PC build.

NMC should be exact as EPOX EP-bx5-C. Same BIOS works.

Thanks! Downloaded the CD and EPOX EP-bx5-C seem to be easier to investigate.

The socket 7 motherboard is Acer V35X:

Looks like I'll be able to contribute a BIOS dump for it, that's nice.

Bought these components from a gold scraper yesterday. I had difficulty bargaining with him, since every offer I made him, he would compare it with how much gold he could recover from them. Some CPU's had quite bend pins but managed to straighten them out under a microscope.

And how much gold does he think is that? I would estimate Athlons and P3 contain less than 0.05 gram. So about 2.5 USD not counting the work and cost for acid etc.

He claimed the components had about 3 grams of gold. In the end we agreed for 1/3 of what he wanted. I also got 3 heatsinks for socket 462 and one heatsink for socket 370, and one "newer" AGP card in the lot.

I always feel proud of myself when buying the components from gold scrappers, because I know I've just saved them.

3 grams of gold these must be magical CPUs. Sometimes I wonder if these gold scrappers even have a clue to the actual gold content let alone actually make any money let alone profit.

If eBay is semi accurate these NexGen cpus seem to be around 300 USD, which is more than the gold value even if it was 3 grams (160 USD) and 3 grams is being stupidly generous. (1 gram is 53.40 USD for reference)
