    To give the younglings an idea the Pentium III was 0.18um (180nm) and would peak at around 1.3ghz :p

    My first desktop had a Pentium III...and it only had a stock cooler on it. I think I was about 10. I don't think I had anything to monitor temperatures but let's say that air in the rear of the case used to be quite toasty! Boy that brings back memories.

    1.3ghz??

    I had Thermal(take)right Copper heatsinks with 8000rpm Delta's on a pair of PIII's @ 1.1ghz, and that was OC'd to the max on an Abit VP6 :)

    I was thinking of the Tualatin core which was actually 130nm, you are right the 180nm would only go to around 1.1ghz (Intel had to recall the 1.13ghz version).

    My first CPU above 1Ghz with a 1.4ghz athlon thunderbird an an Aopen black beauty motherboard :)

    Not too long after that I embraced SATA with the ABit NF7-S with an athlon XP 2500 barton core :D

    2x 80GB 7200.7 HDDs in raid 0 back then was SO much faster than my old 4200rpm 6GB Drive (I tended to take huge leaps back then lol).

    Comparing the highest end boards of the time to even a budget board these days in terms of component density let alone quality really makes it stand out :)

    (The foil around the socket was to stop the screwdriver you were applying large amounts of force on to get the heatsink to mount did not scratch the PCB!)
