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!

Pentium MMX 166Mhz

Pentium MMX 166Mhz

An attempt to take a macro picture of an opened Pentium CPU. The sharpness and details could be better – need to find a good way to illuminate this. The white dots are dust 😉

This CPU was in use ca. 1997.

Does anyone recognize the different units (ALU, cache, etc..) and can add notes ?

Dell Optiplex 170L (Before)

As you can see here, this power supply’s intake is completely clogged with nearly 10 years’ worth of dust. Given the notorious nature of Dell’s PSU’s to fail, how it survived like this up to this point is beyond me.

The famous green Dell fan shroud caked with machine dust. It didn’t look much better underneath, where the heatsink for the Socket 478 Pentium 4 Processor was completely clogged.

A wide view of the dust-free internals of this computer after detailing. It doesn’t look like an almost 10-year-old computer!
