View Full Version : pentium 11
A strange question perhaps...I have acquired a Pentium 11 processor complete with fan and heatsink.I do not yet have a slot 1 motherboard,so I cannot plug the CPU in to test it.Is there any way I can tell what speed a
Pentium 11 is just by looking at it?
Thanks for any suggestions,
Now that I have achieved A+ certification,I realise how much there is still to learn...

On the top of the PII Case is some laser etched markings.
The top line should look similar to this:
these stand for speed/cache/bus/voltage respectively.
If not then you have the OEM model and its a little more cryptic:
80522PX400512E S0012 2.2V
where the first sentence's first word's last 6 numbers stand for Speed and Cache Size respectively. You may not have the E, which stands for ECC supported cache. Hopefully you do.
The first is the one you want. Later...
Oh yeah. People have been known to actually swap casings on CPU's so if yo want to make sure you have what you were sold then check this site out. developer.intel.com/support/processors/tools/frequencyid/ (http://developer.intel.com/support/processors/tools/frequencyid/)

Also look around the Intel (http://www.intel.com) site, they have an ID page where you can identify the CPU by the model numbers stamped on it.
The link posted above to the frequency ID utility assumes you can install and use the CPU...
Soon as I come up with all the answers...they change the questions!!
