    Re: Anyone still have their old AMD XP's around? What have you done with yours?

    From my first build to my last build, they have all been AMD. I could get into why but it's to much writing and history but suffice to say that it goes back to the K6 and the K6 II days of the processor wars. I still have the last one I built, a Barton 2800+ on a GigaByte mobo, 4GB of pc3200, running a media server in the corner. Been so long since I had to touch it that I have forgotten its clocking but I remember being pleased when I was done with it. XP's and prior Palaminos I think too, saved AMD. Not just because of flexible performance parameters but also because they priced the floor right out from under Intel and the PIII and P4. Still running an AMD quad core laptop, I just didn't get to build this one

    I have a Compaq Presario from 1999 that I upgraded everything except the Super 7 motherboard, and I replaced the K6-II 380 and upgraded to a K6-III 450 that I overclocked to 550 and 600 and it still works just fine. I have an old maxtor 30G hdd and Win 98SE on it. It just will not die. Terrific chips. Terrific motherboard. Terrific bios by the Compaq folks as that mobo accepted every bit of new hardware I threw at it, and there was quite a bit (hdd, fdd, optical, modem, video card, memory, ide add-in cards, and finally, the k6-III 450). ,

    I have a Compaq Presario laptop from the same vintage; came with a K6-2 366 processor on an OPTi chipset and some video accelerator I'd never heard of. But everything on it still works great. I pulled out the old CPU and replaced it with a K6-III+ 450, although the mobo is limited to a 66 MHz bus and I can only run it at 400 MHz, on an undocumented 1.8v setting, because of this. (Of course, a K6-III at 400 beats the tar out of a K6-2 at 366!) It also got a bigger, newer HDD and a fresh Win98se install. The good thing is that I discovered that the board can accept a 256 MB SO-DIMM, so it now has 288 MB of RAM. I use it mostly as a digital music center for my bedroom, although with the extra RAM, it's useful for light web browsing as long as you don't expect miracles.

    Those Compaq laptops were built like tanks. They weren't perceived as all that good back in the day, but they've outlived everything else of that era. I have three of them, but I use that 1273 the most because the others have a 160 or 192 MB RAM limit.

    Re: Anyone still have their old AMD XP's around? What have you done with yours?

    I have an Athlon 2500 downstairs somewhere. Last time I checked it still ran. I don't remember which Asus board it is mounted on, either an A7V8X-X or A7N8X-X. I have some data on it I'll need to pull off at some point (or just use it), and I think when I turn it on I'll see Windows 2000.

    I switched to AMDs with the Thunderbirds. That was when Intel thought it was a good idea to encode the serial number into the processor. That caused me annoyance and displeasure, and everything I've built for myself or others since has been AMD.

    I decided to go "artsy" last Christmas. Note, these processors were already dead, so no working processors were harmed.

    Great pictures. Looks like all the drawers in our laundry room where I have way too many old components stored away.

    I'm posting this from my desktop a Shuttle AN35N Ultra with an Athlon XP3200. If the damn thing would just break I'd build a new computer. I've also got an unlocked Barton XP2500 and a "spare' AN35N Ultra just sitting around.

    I had an unlocked Barton 2500 that I ran at 13 X 200 = 2.6GHz back in 2004. It was just awesome. And it was stabled. Used a kt-600 Albatron mobo. I loved albys, sorry to see them go.

    Re: Anyone still have their old AMD XP's around? What have you done with yours?

    I used mine in systems that I ultimately donated to my son's school. It has been quite a few years now. They are probably in a junk heap somewhere now. I still have a couple of chips around, though, an old pally, t-bred b, and K6-II 380 and a k6-III 450. Plus a couple of others I think.

    I had to move last summer so unfortunetly I threw it out, it had a XP-M 2600+ @ 2.7GHz, ABIT NF7-S Rev 2.0 board and 1GB Corsair XMS ram it was a beast back in the day.

    Re: Anyone still have their old AMD XP's around? What have you done with yours?

    Shuttle AN35N Ultra boards around. I then took my two XP-M processors and dropped them in a Tyan 2466 board and overclocked them using the socket wire mod. I think both were running just fine at 2600MHz for years as my server/BOINC machine. It's still assembled in the basement minus a PSU which I stole for something else. Can't think of a good use for it. I can't bring myself to throw away parts I know still work.
