    A Packard Bell 60MHz Socket 4 Pentium system showed up here yesterday as
    part of a collection of out-of-service computers. The desktop case was
    pretty munged up, but the motherboard appears to be in good shape. The
    system had the original PB Aztec full-length ISA sound card, but
    somebody replaced the antique 14.4 ISA modem and added a cheap PCI
    graphics card.

    Socket 4 is a rare beast, indeed, lasting about a New York minute in
    Intel's scheme of things. Socket 4 CPUs ran hot at 5v, and they came
    along just after the 66MHz 486-DX2, and before Intel got wise and cut
    CPU voltages down to 3.3v with the Socket 5 Pentium and the 3.3v
    mis-named 100MHz 486-DX4.

    If anyone (Bob Watts, for example) is interested in this board, I can
    test it along with its riser card. I have no means of testing the Aztec
    sound card.

    If it tests OK, the board goes to whichever PB collector who can give me
    a few bucks for my time plus postage. Let me know.

    If I don't hear from anyone in about 10 days, the board goes into my
    board scrap pile and the CPU into the gold-bearing CPU pile, at around
    $1200 an ounce. That's for pure gold, not for CPUs... Ben Myers

  5. HI Ben !

    Now that the holidaze are behind us, did you get a list of stuff together
    that you may want to sell with the Packard Bell Socket 4 board?
