I have this up for auction if anyone is interested.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/251155827447

I am also selling 8087 coprocessors for $20 shipping included, and yes I did test each one individually in my XT.

I am also selling some engineering samples and other things if want to look at my other auctions. I don't mean to spam,but I'm a broke grad student trying to pay the rent.

Speaking of "paying the rent" I saw your p-pros for auction.

I'm in the market for 2 WORKING 512kb ones. (200mhz) also a socket 4 motherboard.

Sorry, these are 256k, 180 Mhz, otherwise I would be keeping some selling the rest for a lot more. I have seen some on ebay this week but they won't be cheap. The gold content alone on those is over $50.

I know, I was talking about the actual gold content of about 1 gram.

As for the 200 Mhz, 512K model I just saw 2 of the SL22Z processors go for $29 each. I thought they would have gotten more.

SL22Z is about one of the most common Pro sSpecs around.. so worth more as gold scrap than to a collector

There are only 6 production Pros that are worth more to a collector than for gold scrap & none of them are 200s

are you wanting to run P60/66s or an overdrive?
YES.

I'm working with a couple other people on a "ultimate 686 benchmark" comparison. The thread is here: http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewtopic.php?t=32947&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0

He had previously taken all 486's and done a similar benchmark. now its pentium/pentium 2. I just had a 66mhz pentium donated and all I need is a board, among other things... expect a thread about it in the for sale section here.
