Intel Pentium 120MHz SY062 (No Dust Removal)

Intel Pentium 120MHz SY062 (No Dust Removal)

This is an Intel Pentium 120MHz with an sspec of SY062. It was pulled from an old desktop that was given to me by a friend.

The cooler was not properly attached to the processor (2 clamps broken) and it did not have any thermal paste or pads.

It uses most likely uses the P54CQS processor core and is based on the P5 micro architecture.

It operates at 3.3 Volts (Modern chips use ~1.4 Volts), has a maximum power consumption of 13.4 Watts and can operate from 0°C – 70°C.

I was hoping I could keep it in working order after opening up the lid but I unfortunately slipped as the lid came off and slit 3 of the wires.

I took some advice from Pauli Rautakorpi from another post to downscale the individual images since they are higher resolution than the smallest details my microscope can resolve. I used XnConvert to downscale each of the 88 photos by 50% from their original size. This allowed me to use Autopano Giga, another software tool which performs better than Microsoft ICE at stitching these images (when it works). Autopano Giga does not like the 24MP photos and rarely works with them, but it was able to handle the down-scaled photos just fine!

GIMP was then used to manually remove all of the dust and solder particles which I was unable to remove prior to taking the image. Please use the other image I posted without the dust removed for any reverse engineering attempts, I may have unintentionally modified some structures in the dust removal process!

Intel i5 2500 iGPU Crop

This was from a full die composite I tried to do but it failed miserably. It is the same one that the single core crop came from. Since people seem to have really liked that one, here is the igpu from that same session. I was focusing my dust removal attention towards the cores, so I did not clean this as much as I would have liked.

Remnants of the Elliott MOS Laboratory

Remnants of the Elliott MOS Laboratory

Tasked in 1967 with creating a MOS integrated circuit process, then an 8-bit computer in MOS, the Elliott Microelectronics MOS laboratory building is finally biting the dust. It was the expertise from this development that spawned other UK facilities such as Motorola’s MOS 1 fab.
For many years the attached office building was used by Pico Electronics, inventor of the X-10 protocol and One for All remote controls.

The CPU cooling fan on my PC at work was working overtime. Now I know why.

Removed the dust and now it doesn’t sound like a jet taking off 🙂

Dusty RAM and strange chip

Dusty RAM and strange chip

This is just after I opened the machine up for the first time in a few years. There was penty of dust on these RAM chips.

Dusty CPU

Another shot just after I’d opened the machine, showing encrusted dust on the CPU. Shortly after, I wiped down this, and the rest of the chips, with a lump of damp toilet paper.

A view along the 2nd keyboard connector, and the resistors next to it. I removed the dust ball (on the left) after I took this image. I thought it looked cool.
