Taking queue from the Graphics card section, I thought it would be fun to show your progression in CPU's.

I'll start: (edit: I added in the CPUs of computers my parents had that I grew up using)

Intel 386 DX 25MHz
Intel Pentium 90MHz
Intel Celeron 733MHz
Athlon XP 2600+ @ Stock
Athlon XP 3000+ @ Stock
Athlon X2 4200+ @ Stock
Intel Core2Duo e6300 @ 2.8GHz
Intel Core2Duo e6400 @ 3.2GHz (It fried when my power supply took out my computer)
Intel Core2Duo e6400 @ 2.6GHz
Intel Core2Duo e8400 @ 3.6GHz

1. Mac RISC PowerPC (I think)
2. Pentium 2 350 Mhz ( I swear this thing had heart)
3. Pentium 3 667 Mhz
4. Athlon XP 1700+ T Bred B 0310 XPMW @ 2.0 - 2.2 Ghz till lightning hit it
5. Athlon XP Barton 3000+
6. Athlon 64 cant remember the clock speed
7. Athlon XP Barton 3000+ (Same one, current)
8. Next: Core i7 920

Let's see how much I can remember:

Intel 486 (don't remember the model, this was many years ago)
Intel Pentium OverDrive (120MHz I think)
Intel Pentium 166MHz
Intel Pentium MMX 200MHz
AMD K6-2 450MHz
AMD K6-III 450MHz
Intel Celeron 600MHz
Intel Pentium 3 700MHz
Intel Celeron 900MHz (overclocked to 1.1GHz)
Intel Celeron 2.4GHz (overclocked to 3.2GHz)
Intel Pentium 4 "A" 1.7GHz (overclocked to 2.1GHz)
Intel Pentium 4 "B" 2.4GHz (overclocked to 3.2GHz)
Intel Pentium 4 "C" 2.4GHz (overclocked to 3.2GHz)
Intel Pentium 4 "C" 2.6GHz (overclocked to 3.2GHz)
AMD Athlon/Turion X2 TK-53 1.7GHz (laptop)
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83GHz (overclocked to 3.8GHz)

Various secondary PCs over the years:

Intel Pentium MMX 150MHz (laptop)
Intel Pentium II 400MHz
Intel Celeron 600MHz
Intel Pentium 3 600MHz (Slot 1, a few of these)
Intel Pentium 3 666MHz
Intel Pentium 3 733MHz (a few of these)
Intel Pentium 3 933MHz
AMD Athlon 733MHz
Intel Pentium D 915 2.8GHz (overclocked to 3GHz)
Intel Pentium Dual-Core E2140 1.6GHz (replaced the PD 915 in a secondary box, although the mobo doesn't like to overclock with this chip)

Probably missing a few, but that's most of them.

One error in your post. The Pentium Pro was only offered in 150MHz, 166MHz, 180MHz, and 200MHz clock speeds. It was never offered below 150MHz. Though I had heard of the existance of 133MHz Pentium Pro samples. I've yet to ever see one.

mmm, ya it is 150mhz, got it when it was brand new chip

Couldn't remember the clock, as the "daily usage" is from my dad, I haven't touched it in many years

I am and always was a huge fan of the Pentium Pro. It was awesome back in its day. I still own three of them. One 150MHz CPU and two 180MHz CPUs that were both overclocked to 200MHz every day I used them on an Intel PR440FX motherboard.

That computer cost $3600, which I am happy to say by far the most I have spent on one. I guess I was much more [H] back in the day.

The Pentium Pro was really something. Every desktop and laptop CPU that Intel makes today is pretty much just an improved version of it.

Thanks. :)

Those are just personally owned CPUs. I've had more that were purchased for systems I've built and resold. Some of those were dual processor Xeon workstations. Also working for the [H] I've had countless hours with a variety of CPUs. Athlon 64's, X2's FX's, Phenoms, Core 2's, Extreme Editions, etc. Right now I've got three Core i7 920's in my office. Only one of which belongs to me. (I'm typing this on that system now.) All of which can do 3.8GHz or more on air. Two of them I've been able to hit 4.2GHz on air stable.

(bolded ones are from my PCs, others are ones I've built for family members)

AMD 486 @ 100MHz
AMD Athlon 700MHz (Thunderbird), later replaced with AMD Athlon 1.2GHz (Thunderbird)
AMD AthlonXP 3200+ (Socket 939 Barton)
AMD Athlon 2000+ (Thoroughbred) - motherboard for Thunderbird PC needed replacing so I needed a new CPU too
AMD Athlon64 3200+ (Venice probably)
Intel Core Duo T2300


After completely skipping the Core 2 and the Phenom, I'm moving to the Core i7 920 next. The main problem is that I can't find a decent monitor (I want 1920x1200 and I'm a perfectionist :p) so I'm sticking with my CD T2300 laptop until I do.

my first and only cpu so far:

pentium D 805

next will be an i7 if i ever graduate and start MAKING money. idk why this thing is so rare. i have never seen one in fs/ft, and i cruise there a lot. and the only one ive seen so far in this thread was one extreme edition owned by, who else? dan_d. i actually quite like it. got it on an asus p5ld2 motherboard and one click in the built in OC software takes it from 2.66 to 3.456 no prob with a core contact freezer. little prob in the summer now though. :\ havent tried to go higher than that.

You had to start one about CPUs.... so many more than GPUs.... well, here goes. Some might not be in order and others were used for such thing as personal web server and/or firewall boxes and/or personal e-mail servers.

Commodore 64 - 1Mhz (wish I woulda kept it)
Timex T1000 - what CPU did it have in it.. don't remember

386sx-25mhz - later added a co-processor
386dx-40

Which was your favorite O' hardware jedi? :D

That's a tough question. I don't really have a single favorite. The ones I remember most fondly are probably those I had in SMP systems starting with my dual Pentium Pro 180MHz CPUs that I ran at 200MHz. Then I had my Celeron 366's overclocked to around 500MHz which I later upgraded to dual 533MHz CPUs which I ran at 600MHz. After that I didn't have another SMP system until my dual Opteron 246's which I only used for a very short time before upgrading those to dual Opteron 254's. I then built a second system for my server needs out of the dual Opteron 246's. Most recently my dual QX9775 system served my needs for work and gaming until getting the Core i7 920. The QX9775's will go into my server setup.

With all that said I'm very fond of my Core i7 920 which is running nicely at 4.2GHz on air cooling alone. This was extremely easy to get going at those clocks and its been rock solid the entire time I've had it.

Intel Pentium 60MHz (Packard Bell as well. Even used a screw driver to pry the CPU from the socket without using the latch release. Then put it back in by force. Minus a row or two (or a few), it still works. Good thing too because it was the first and only computer we had at the time and I used it as a learning experience because I was bored.)

Intel Pentium 4 1.7GHz Willemette (first overclocking experience... to 1.8GHz)

Intel Pentium 4 3.0 HT (socket 478)
Intel Pentium D 920 (2.8GHz: Pointless "upgrade" just to jump on the PCI-e bandwagon)
Intel Core2Duo E4500 @ 3.0GHz
Intel Core2Duo E8400 @ stock (yet another pointless upgrade cause my OC to 3.6? is unstable according to IntelBurnTest.)
