Found this today, a pair of NIB PIII 1GHZ 100FSB being sold for a duel mobo setup.

Retro Rig: PIII 1Ghz (SL4KL), P3B-F 1.04, Crucial 512Mb, Geforce4 TI4600, SATAII Raptor, AWE64 GOLD, STB Voodoo 2… TBC

They are new, in box though. And were not all that common. That guy might get $150 for them, but certainly not $400 BIN. I have a used set of these CPUs. It is not easy to find a 440BX motherboard which works with the pair at 1 GHz. My Dell Precision Workstation 410 maxed out at 850 MHz, although 1 GHz is pseudo-stable. My Tyan S1832D board is of the revision which can accept up to 600 MHz only, although there is a hardware mod work-around I haven't tried yet.

I have read that many (all, or most?) 440BX boards work with a 133 MHz FSB. What would be interesting would be to see how far the pair can overclock to in such a MB. I don't think I've seen any examples of a dual 1.33 GHz copermine setup.

Um, overpriced by a factor of 40-50.

That would make it around $10 BIN 🤣

This is the top 100 MHz FSB Slot 1 CPU and sealed NIB. Will always go for an outrageous price. Just get a 800 MHz model and save yourself lots of cash.

Or just get the Socekt 370 version and compatible adapters, if your board supports FSB 133 and if you videocard can handle 89 Mhz AGP in the case of BX motherboards, you can go with the P1 1 GHz FSB 133 for much less than this, also no mentioning the FSB 133 model is faster

There is something about slot 1 systems which are magnificently more alluring than any socket 370 system.

Not in my experience. I prefer S370, but then the first machine I got to experiment with hardware wise was a 866MHz PIIIEB in S370 so it's probably rose tinted glasses on my part. Wish I still had that one but it was at school and my parents wouldn't let me bring it home (it had been a donation PC, I worked on it to learn more about computers for an extracurricular activity)/

What I like the most about slot 1 systems is that it is easier to source parts for them including nice boards since most people only go after the good 370 stuff.

Yes yes yes... but the way things are now, I think I'll just get (for BX) a 1.0 or even 1,1GHz FCPGA Coppermine and maybe, if possible, retrofit onto it a SECC2 case (esp. the side with the mighty logos and hologram) to get the all-so-important look. 😀

I could try this with in a P2B-DS or an Epox Dual 370 board.
I would try it out just for a quick benchmark spin.

But that would be a 33% overclock.
Do you guys think the CPUs can handle that?

I would be bidding on it myself but I have already bought a lot of stuff this week. I wouldn't be surprised that a 800 or 900mhz pair could do between 1-1.2ghz without too much fuss providing nothing went wrong cooling or power wise. If all else could piece together a pair of the same stepping if you can't find a matched pair at a decent price. Did this to my slot 2 xeon setup as I went with the 2mb 550 mhz p3 xeons and did the same to my 933mhz dell precession. Some steppings are rare so check things first before buying.

If i remember, Coppermine has stability issues over 1-1.1 ghz due to architerture limitations. Some people managed to overclock at the range of 1.2-1.3 ghz, but i haven't seen benchmarks of them.

Originally, Intel wanted to release an 1.13 ghz Pentium III back in 2000, it was never released due to extreme stability issues and problems during the reviews. Intel haven't relesed a coppermine 1.13 ghz untill the CD0 stepping
