Bing.. If you still have this heatsink, me wants it! hehe
I had that one when it first came out.. Modified it many times to fit other stuff in the past so i cant use it for Slot 1 CPUs anymore.. still have the original fans for it though .

I like this thread!
For once I can contribute back to this forum lol. Heres a couple of Slot 1/2 boards I once O/Ced with. Back then, I'd have killed for the Slot sinks you guys have been posting. At one point, I had a custom made sink on a 933, but alas, no pictures.. Heres what I still have(still working condition )
ALR 80386 setup. First computer, last time I store bought(1992):
Whopping 4MB of RAM
Bid dady 25MHz Intel CPU
Two Slot boards that I loved.. First is a Gigabyte GA-6BXC w/ 128MB RAM and a S3 AGP card. The 350/100MHz cpu ran at 500MHz for atleast 3 years on the stock cooling. The second is another great board. ASUS P2B. I didn't get to play much with it, as I had procured a Socket A setup that took my attention..
Hope ya'll enjoy this as much as I do. I've been looking into telnetting a BBS, but its got me lost..M11X 1.3GHz I3 SSD + 30 others

My very first OC was with a Pentium Pro in a Compaq DeskPro 6000e or something like that.
it was a 200mhz with 1mb L2 Cache... which I paid $7 for at geeks.com.
Got hot like a stove and the heatsink that I had for it DID NOT have a fan. but I had it run while playing Diablo 2, which barely ran because PPro did not come with MMX, which what D2 required lol. that PC also had 128mb of RAM, and a 32mb TNT2 PCI card and the old Sound Blaster 16 ISA card that was nearly 12 inches long lol.
This was before I got a job and bought an Athlon 2500+ w/ nForce2 chipset board, etc... the rest is history.

I was digging around and found the first system I overclocked. AMD Athlon 1.4 @ 1.6 (This was a massive overclock at the time)
Notice the additional HS on the GF2 ! lol
I did have boxes of really old stuff but I binned the lot (Pentium Pro, P75)You only live once, look out for those true friends and never forget them EVER!!

For CPU I ever pushed was in may of 2000, it was a celly 400 on a Tyan Trinity 400. My greatest oc was my 1.1t-bird pushed to 1620 with air. Later got a Swiftech MCW462-UT 226w Pelt and a meanwell s-320. Well lets just say the cooler wasn't fully touching the cpu and it went poof.Media Server | Norco RPC-470 | GIGABYTE GA-890XA-UD3 | Phenom II X4 925 Deneb | 8gigs G.SKILL Ripjaws PC3 10666 | 64gig Crucial M4 | x2 2TB Samsung F3 | x2 1TB Samsung F1 | x1 2TB Samsung F4 | 500gigs Seagate 7200.10 | Sapphire HD4830 HDMI | Corsair 650hx

Here's a small collection from the box under my desk from previous overclock experiments.
CPU's ranging from an AMD 286/10, 486DX2 66, Pentium 60-233mhz, AMD K6 200-500mhz, Cyrix 686 120+, S.478 P4 1.6-2.66ghz, Athlon 64/Phenom II, s775 p4 630 + e6320, Sun UltraSPARC IIi 550mhz.
RAM: Everything from 72 pin SIMMS EDO/Fast Page/ECC, SD-RAM DIMMS, DDR-DIMMS, SGI proprietary DIMMS.
There's piles of motherboards in the back room for all the chips, and a few Athlon T-bird/XP combos still working, with some Slot/Socket P3 setups still working if installed in cases. Not going to picture the other boxes of heatsinks and video cards.
The best heatsink mounting setup I remember working was the Digital Alpha's with the heatsink bolted to the cpu alongside the clip for the socket. Those never overclocked all that well though without changing the clock crystal on the mb.

I NEED Slot A stuff!
Hi all - I have a lot of older gear, but I am missing/needing at least two GFDs (Golden Finger Devices) for slot A AMD cpus. I have been wanting to do this for years, but now there is no source for them that I can find! It seems like 2 years (hell, maybe it was 8 years!) ago when I searched they were everywhere, but not now.
I know this is way old stuff, but I've still got a perfect Compaq PC, and a perfect big-name motherboard, and all the needed parts that I can use for backup units and such.
So can you guys help me out? I am willing to pay for shipping, plus a little if you want. This is obviously a budget operation.
PS - Hope this isn't in the wrong forum - I didn't know where else to put it.

It was made in Japan, when it comes to the metal finishing, the current Taiwan or China made top high end heatsinks simple can't beat it.

I've got some good stuff at home. I think I may have gotten rid of my T-bird 1ghz that oc'd to 1.5. That was an awesome chip back in the day. I still have my asus a7n8x- deluxe and 1700+. Still works. I also have a celly a something and my cusl2 socket 370 with my alpha cooler. I'll grab some pics when I get home.

This thread brings back some memories.
Although not as old as some of the other parts posted, this was my first overclocked CPU. I wish I could remember how fast I got it up to.
