I have maybe 70 or so... Any specific combo/models you need? You want memory as well with it?
Might a nice dx2/66mhz. and mobo interest you for instance? Need spares? Because i still have a box of those sitting unshipped/unclaimed.
Yeah, it's a 486 66MHz. The chip says Intel DX4ODPR100, so whatever board would fit that I suppose. Or realistically, any board/chip/RAM combo from ~1993 would work.
Hmm. That's a 100MHz DX4 you have there i think. Last of the line of 486, before Pentium. Those are pretty rare, and runs on 3.3V lines. You can NOT replace it with a DX2@66 however, as it is NOT socket compatible (for the most part) as regular 80486 like DX2 run on 5V, so you would fry the CPU. Like i said, DX4s are rare these days, esp. the 100MHz. ones which you seem to have. If CPU can be tested working i would hold on to it and replace whatever is broken, like mobo perhaps... The 3.3-3.6V mobos are a bit hard to find as well, but needed for the DX4's, unless you modify the socket yourself which i don't recommend as it requires a lot of headscratching to figure out where to add res to drop Vs.
