This was added to replace an anemic Celeron 2.53, and we quad'd the old school DDR RAM from 512kB to 2GB and added some groovy blue-LED'd fans. An aftermarket CPU cooler goes on this weekend. They haven't made these for many years, so I want to do everything I can to protect this baby. If you have a Dell, it almost certainly has a proprietary HSF bracket that is incompatible with any aftermarket coolers, so make sure to pick one up. This processor also supported boosting the RAM speed from 333MHz to 400MHz, and of course, hyperthreading.
The computer had been reduced to a dust bunny inhaler that was scarcely fit for even email or the lightest of web browsing. It is now more than adequate for browsing, video watching, and even Open Office spreadsheeting and WP'ing. Man that RAM beef-up makes save times for even (relatively)large files almost instantaneous.
For less than $75(maybe up another $60-ish to $135 if I add a PCI rev none video card and replace the PSU), we managed to kick the replace-our-secondary-computer-can at >= $350.00 down the road for hopefully another 2 or 3 years while better technology becomes obsolecent and therefore more affordable.
The kids are actually fighting again over time on the reinvigorated Dell, and it feels good to have saved money and landfill space too. If you have an old socket 478 machine, this CPU could really make for time and money well spent.
The vendor from WA state shipped promptly. Item arrived in a thin paper box, on a small piece of anti-static foam pad, wrapped in several layers of anti-static bubble wrap. The unit had been fully cleaned of old thermal paste, and all of its pins were straight. The new/old CPU dropped in and fired right up after applying the requisite glob of new thermal paste and re-installing the heatsink assembly. The system recognized and accepted its new components.
After adding a 256 mb AGP video card, This Old Desktop once again prowls the interwebs with noticeably improved 'speed', @ minimal expense. It'll suffice for a little while longer; at least until I can assemble a budget dual core rig from various 'pre-owned' components.
Makes the perfect setup if you have someone looking to learn about computers and using the internet, etc.
is still not blazing fast, the Intel Pentium 4 has had a noticeable effect in the speed of the computer. Given the price and result it was a very cost effective
