    I figured I'd ask in here since what I'm lookin for is kinda old.

    Anyone have or know where I can find a pic(wallpaper 1920x1080) of nothing but cpu's? trying to find a pick containing a large collection of the history of cpu's. I think it'll be cool to have all over the screen. If you work in a pc shop and have access to all them could you take a good pic for me?

    Thanks. I'm trying to look everywhere.

    Collection wallpaper of other pc stuff would be great also. I'm adding it all to my win7 pc theme.

    I've done soooo many different phrase searches, lots of web sites. But no luck. Anyone else got any ideas or luck? I thing it'll be neat to see just about all the different cpus going back to the biggies that look like oversize ram chips to what we have today all together in a collection. I wouldn't mind one of gpu's either or anything else that'll be interesting to have.

    i spy some EDO RAM, two slot 7 Athlons, and an Intel Pentium w/ MMX! also looks like there's a couple of first-gen Pentiums in an anti-static bag under the table.
    ahh, the good old days. when 60%+ overclocks were common and only involved changing some jumpers and heat was minimal, even when overclocked...
    good times!:toast:

    reminds me because i once fried an 8086 that was stock at 6MHz by overclocking it to 24MHz, it ran for a few minutes then went POP!:roll: 400% overclock:rockout:

    The Vanta didn't even have a heatsink on it, but it wasn't hot enough to burn me when I touched it.

    I wonder what temps it got up to, it does't have any sensors so nothing would tell me.

    Okay, still haven't learned how to use my camera yet, but here's cpus!!
    [​IMG]
    The top row is AMD stuff, the 2 that are hard to see are K6-2s 350 and 380Mhz. There's some athlons and durons there too. The pentiums start at 75Mhz and go to 133. The mmx pentium, I'm not sure what speed. Also know squat about the pentium pro, not even sure how I got that!
