7 year Necro-wow
7 year Necro-wow
I was just thinking about mine, and found it difficult to remember, but here it goes from my best recollection:
It all starts when I was allowed to use my parents old XT computer for educational games at age 8...
1988: 8088 (I forget the clock rate, probably 4Mhz)
1991: 286 8Mhz (OC:ed to 12MHz, This was both my my first own computer and the first one I took apart and put back together again at age 12, it scared the crap out of my parents)
1994: 486sx 25mhz (OC:ed to 50Mhz, This was my first - from scratch - PC build, For OC all that was needed was the addition of an HSF which it did not have stock)
1995: Pentium 90Mhz (OC:ed to 120Mhz)
1997: Pentium MMX 200mhz (would not OC at all)
2000: AMD Duron 600mhz (OC:ed to 800Mhz)
2001: AMD Athlon 1.2Ghz (Would not OC at all, this thing ran HOT)
2001: AMD Athlon 1.4Ghz
2001: AMD Athlon 1.2Ghz (same CPU as above after crushing the 1.4 (and it's replacement, my second 1.4) with an asetek vapochill
2001: AMD Duron 600mhz (OC:ed to 800mhz) After I destroyed the 1.2 with the vapochill and got fed up and sold it)
2002: AMD Athlon XP 1800+ (No OC. I had gotten tired of loud fans, and it was fast enough)
2004: AMD Athlon64 3000+ (socket 754) (OC:ed from 2Ghz to 2.4Ghz)
2009: Intel Core i7-920 (Was able to hit 3.8ghz stable air cooled with built in cooler in Shuttle SX58H7, but it was LOUD, so I'm running stock until I need more speed.)
I cant. I posted in this thread years and years ago. I copy/pasted and added the most current ones since I remember those.Damn, im amazed that you guys/gals can remember that many and that far back! Im lucky if i can remember my current rigs specs. Im not kidding, i have to keep all of my component boxes in bigger marked boxes! Otherwise...chaos.
I barely remember what GPUs I've had over the last 25 (?) years, less the CPUs I've had over the last 30. I know I started with a Zilog Z80 in a C128 and a 386DX was my first x86 processor. Then, I've had a chip from probably every gen architecture from both Intel in AMD (and Cyrix).I cant. I posted in this thread years and years ago. I copy/pasted and added the most current ones since I remember those.
Well, since we're doing this again, I've had the following since the 2600k:Prebuilts:
Pentium MMX 133Mhz (I think)
PIII 800 Mhz
E6600 @ 3.2
I've built a couple PC's for my dad too, but I can't remember what components I used.
Time to update this since it has been over 10 years!E6600 which was capable of reaching 3.4Ghz or so... and then a year later the Q6600 since affordable quad became all the rage. Haven't felt a need to upgrade since.
UpdateLet's see what the old brain cells remember;
486DX2 66 I think it was a Texas Instrument one.
Pentium II 400
AMD K6-2 350
Pentium III 450 (still own)
Pentium III 800 Slot 1 Coppermine (still own)
Pentium III 800 Socket 370 Coppermine (still own)
Pentium III 1.1Ghz Taulatin
AMD XP1800+ (Thunderbird?)
AMD XP2500+ Barton (still in operation)
Pentium 4 2.8Ghz Prescott (still in operation)
AMD 3000 64
AMD Phenom II X4 810
Core i7 960 S1366 (my current primary rig)
Phenom II X6 1100T (my current secondary rig)
No Celerons or Durons for me
