Intel Pentium 4/D & Celeron/D owner's Thread - Page 46

post #451 of 761
Guys and gals!

Now that we are talking about CPU's that are relatively rare (I'm hesitant to say the P3 Tualatin is rare, because lots of people talk about it, but it is a good candidate I'm not sure if it was sold in great quantities or not. I'm not familiar with the server side of business, so please enlighten me if you know), I created the Rare / Unusual CPU club a few hours ago.

If you have one, or remember more CPU's that are rare and worthy of adding to the small example list I made, I invite you all to join in and share!

Cheers!

I remember, many many many years ago, when I was still using my Dell Dimension 4100 with a Pentium III 800MHz, I wanted a Tualatin Pentium III so badly, even if it meant 1.13GHz or 1.26GHz variant. The chips were very expensive since they were somewhat rare, along with other factors. The cost wasn't worth it when a new CPU would be better for similar money, so I (and others) skipped it (so yeah, I'd say they classify as uncommon at least).

Fast forward to like 2009, and I see they're like ~$20, even for the fastest 1.4GHz server variant! Imagine my surprise! I wanted to grab one, but I found that the adapters that were previously plentiful and cheap were now the ones that were rare (more like nonexistent) and expensive! Gah! Talk about role reversal. So, I just ended up grabbing the CPU and the motherboard off of eBay. It was too cheap/easy and I'd hate myself later if I didn't. I still never really tried overclocking it or anything, but I'm glad I have it.

If you look on eBay, you might be able to find motherboards for it. You have the CPU for it, so why not?

If you want my hint, boards like mine with VIA chipsets support up 1.5GB RAM, however, they can tend to have flaky AGP4x support (with nVidia cards, it's forced back to AGP2x speeds) along with other quirks, and are slower in general, so weigh the pros and cons. If you don't need to greater than 512MB for it (like just Windows 98SE and old use), I'd honestly recommend going with an Intel i815 chipset for it.

Better yet, maybe grab two and a server board. I bet it'd work quite nicely as a "dual core" CPU, maybe even in modern Windows.

Well, I have a Pentium D 915

It's technically my dads, but im building him a nice C2D PC and then he will be happy, and give me the PD

then i will buy a really nice DFI board (always wanted a DFI board) and make it a little LAN rig,

overclock it till it does too

heres a CPUZ of the setup

Shoot. Throw me on the list too.

Pentium 4 531 @ 4.325ghz on H20

Pentium D 945 @ 5.93ghz on phase

Try overclocking it! You may be surprised. I have an Asus TUSL2-C that I've been playing with recently. However, you'll have to have some good ram that will do 150+mhz. I recommend the Infineon HYS64VXXXX-7 series. They will do upwards 170mhz @ 2-2-2-7 Crucial 256mb Micron sticks have better timings and will do around 155mhz @ 2-2-2-5 and 158mhz @ 3-2-2-7

I highly recommend the TUSL2 or TUSL2-C if you do that.

Don't get the CUV4X-D or anything similar because they only support Coppermines up to 1.0ghz. (I have a CUV4X-DLS)

I bought mine for £12.99 + £ 3.99 shipping (€ 19,75 total)

Buying two right now is out of my equations. But hey, I never had a dual CPU system, so come to think of it, it sure is tempting!

Thanks for the advice on the mobos. I already have the experience with the i815 chipset, that is the one on my Intel Desktop motherboard with my P3 1GHz, so even though it will only accept 512MB, I think I will prefer it to the VIA, which would probably give me more problems, like you said.

I still game on my Pentium 4! 3.2ghz with HT. Combine that with an 8800GT 512MB and you get decent performance at 1600x900. Upgrading to an i5 2500K soon, however.
