Yeah, yeah, I know, ancient or what

:D

Ive found these CPUs and was wondering which one would you go for.

IQYHA 0345MPMW Y91190ZA40296
IQYHA 0345SPMW Y91190ZA41111
IQYHA 0347SPMW Z372232K30316
IQYHA 0347SPMW Z370902K30041
IQYHA 0347TPMW Z371382K30726
IQYHA 0347WPMW Z372202K30547
IQYHA 0347WPMW Z372202K30633
IQYHA 0347WPMW Z37222 K30440
IQYHA 0347WPXW Z372242K30500
IQYHA 0348RPMW Z374212K30863
IQYHA 0348SPMW Z374252K31446
IQYHA 0348XPMW Z375802L30369
IQYHA 0430GPMW Z443502H40204
IQYHA 0434CPMW T074382H40182

For me the IQYHA 0347SPMW Z370902K30041 looks to be the best one.

The IQYHA 0434CPMW T074382H40182 also looks enticing being one of the last weeks the CPU was produced.

So what do the old timers think

:D

Im not rich, each CPU cost 50€ + shipping
😅
Ah, but if you buy all of them, they might ship all together! A saving! :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:

Well, more seriously, I was never too worried about binnings back in those days (I was only just getting started) but I have very fond memories of my 2500+, and a 2800+ I picked up in a computer faire for a fiver (which, because it was so cheap, I absolutely hammered).

I'd go with the two you suggest, and probably another random one or two for giggles.

But but I want to roll the dice on only one
😅

My beautiful 2.7Ghz prime95 stable IQYHA 0401UPMW Y911792A40359 got destroyed by my sillyness, forgetting that conductonaut would bond with the silicon and heatsink if left for an extended period of time. I had forgotten I used LM and so when I went to take off the heatsink it pulled a piece of silicon off the CPU.

I remember back in the day that the smaller the number at the end i.e. Y911792A40359, signified that the silicon would be nearer to the center of the die and had the best chance of being a golden sample (at least that what was being dicussed). But some batches would start with a different letter before the number and that most I have seen have started with either 4xxxx or 3xxxx.

Here is the competition, albeit these were probably done on an Infinity, or UltraB revB, I only have in my possession an UltraV revA so CPU voltage in BIOS maxes at 2.0v 😅

Don't feed the price gouging hyena's, please...these can be found for free if you look enough. €50 for Socket A stuff is a rip-off.
Thats all well and good if you live in a large enough country that has computer fairs.

If I was living in the UK as I used to for sure I could pop into a local computer fair and have a chance of finding some socket A mobile CPUs for a couple of pounds.

But that is not where I live and where I live it is an impossibility to find a mobile barton CPU.

Just to put some context at what im saying, having run a "computer shop" since 2006 I have attained several barton CPUs over the years, but all of them are locked, I have a 2800+ and two 2600+ but cant get them to reach the 2.7Ghz of the golden 0410UPMW I killed, so the hunt is on for another golden sample.

Yes, 50€ is excessive, I found one in Italy for 35€, but the seller is not prompt on answering my question going days before answering and ofcourse they are not answering what i am asking but saying whatever they like! So i am a little weary of purchasing from that seller ...

Because they are prized by museums ?
