    Heya folks! Was going through my office today and had a look at a box of parts I've been holding onto for whatever reason but have decided that they need to go. I just finished up testing the entire lot and everything seems to be in working order! Most of the stuff is Intel Pentium III based and here is a list of what is included :

    • Genuine Intel Pentium III 800Mhz 133FSB 512k SLOT 1 CPU + Heatsink (probably a matched pair with the CPU below)
    • Genuine Intel Pentium III 800Mhz 133FSB 512k SLOT 1 CPU + Heatsink (probably a matched pair with the CPU above)
    • Genuine Intel Pentium III 500Mhz 100FSB 512k SLOT 1 CPU + Heatsink & Fan
    • Genuine Intel Pentium II 400Mhz 512k 100FSB SLOT 1 CPU + Heatsink
    • Genuine Intel Pentium II 350Mhz 512k 100FSB SLOT 1 CPU (bare chip)
    • ABIT AB-BX6 Intel Pentium II/III 100FSB Motherboard (tested to post with each CPU listed above!) + Vantec IceBerQ Copper Chipset Heatsinks on the bridge chips
    • ATi Rage IIC 4MB AGP Video Card (VGA only)
    • PROMISE Ultra ATA66/RAID PCI card (was probably used to add RAID to the ABIT board)

    Please do not ask about individual peices, I wish to give this away as one lot and not have to bother parting it out individualy as that would really be a waste of time and money. Besides, I am giving this lot away for just the cost of shipping!

    Remember, due to the age of the hardware and the fact that it has been in storage for quite some time (Well protected though), I can not offer any warranty or DOA but as I mentioned above, I have personaly tested the entire lot recently and everything seems to be in good working order.

    This entire lot is yours for just the cost of shipping and handling! Everything will come packed inside anti-stactic bags and bubble wrapping. I'm thinking somewhere along the lines of $25 USD via USPS Priority Mail w/ delivery confirmation within the cont. USA and probably something like $30 to Canada. Folks outside north america (aka europe, asia, ect ect) will have to contact me for a shipping quote.

    I'm only accepting Paypal as payment on this one ( helps cover both our arses ;) ). Sorry!

    Ummmm, lets see.... You probably have a lot of time on your hands and/or wish to setup a simple inhouse file server or something along those lines! :D

    I'm about 2 1/2 hours west of Chicago, Ill. ;)

    I live right near the boarder of Iowa, Wisconsin (I know, I know... :twitch:) and Illinios! Probably takes me about 10-15 minutes from my house to get to either state. I guess thats more like southwest of Chicago.

    Also, I usualy only ever go to the north end, mostly to catch games at wrigley field although I am hoping to score some bears tickets this year!!! I'd like to personaly see the new additions and revisions they've done to soldier field.

    P.S - I've also got a decent older PSU, pulled from a Pentium III Gateway PC and a few smaller GB hard drives I could throw in if anybody needs them (in order to help complete the above). It'll obviously add to the shipping costs but I thought I'd throw out the offer anyhow!

    You are welcome! ;)

    The PSU is a standerd ATX Gateway OEM power supply and I want to say, without having looked at it in quite awhile, it is most likey 200w or lower. It's enough to power a full Pentium III setup though. It has what I believe is a 100mm fan on the bottom that blows air directly down ontop of the CPU.

    Now you know how I feel and the reason why I'm offloading it as one big lot... :D:p

    If nobody takes me up on this offer in a week or so, I'll let you have one of the 800s. :toast:

    LoL! What do you expect for a basic PIII era throw in card? ;)

    No problem! I might also have a spare around someplace. I think it's an EPOX brand ATA66/RAID and it has it's original driver disk and product manual. Just need to dig around and see if I can find it...

    BTW, I do have a SiL3112 based SATA/RAID PCI card, brand new in the box if you could use that. Just let me know!?!
