So, here's been some polls on gfx and mem already, but what about the "heart of computer", CPU? What're you using? Satisfied? Bring it on!

I'll begin.

AMD Thunderbird 1200 @ 1266. R0xx.

Mobile P3-850. Plus 2x P2-350 and 5x P2-233 in the hack boxes.

Reasonably happy with 815, BX and LX chipsets; if I were to buy new I'd probably buy 845D purely because I'm unconvinced that the various AMD chipsets are stable enough.

2x Athlon MP 1.2 GHz

So satisfied it's hard to keep quiet about it. The machine responds like an F-16.

Let's see:

Celery 900,700,667,600, Dual 433
Duron 1G
P233 Laptop
PPC 603

What can I say? When people want to upgrade their HP POS all-in-one boxes, they tend to give me the old box, hence the Celery love fest.

Athlon XP @ 1.5 ghz on an OCed bus.

I've been showering it with affection since the day I got is, particularly since it replaced an aging p2-450. I even bought it a $200 case to live in. Pandering to a chip... :smile:

P166MMX: Not used, currently I scratch my head with it's pins. :smile:
Celeron 366 : Just lies around wishing I had a BX board so I could overclock it. :smile:

Celeron2 500 : Laptop, daily usage.
Celeron 400 : Currently being built into a linux telnet code box. I'll post pics when I'm done, it should look relatively neat. :smile:
Athlon 'Classic' w/ 3DNow!Extensions 950 @ 1000 ( fastest my board allows me to go )
Athlon Tbird 1.4ghz @ 1.4 ghz.


Oh yea, Llama most 68040 are 25 mhz, but they did ramp them up to 40mhz I think. If it's a stock Amiga 4000 it's most likely 25 mhz.

Oh heck, I forgot about my p2 300 unlocked that I use to hold mail. It's got this gigantic passive heatsink on it, and it holds envelopes just great. :smile: Has enough weight to it so it doesn't move around much either.
