Default Re: Your Best Dumpster Finds

The best dumpster find I can think of was an Intel L440GX server board that my nephew found. It came in very handy, using it now as a server.

It seems to have an engineering BIOS on it, not an official one. It also came with an engineering sample P2 processor in it, intended speed is not marked but it runs at 300-333MHz okay. My nephew lives in Folsom, so I guess it might have a connection to an Intel employee.

In the same case with that board was also a KT400 Albatron motherboard with an Athlon XP 2400+ (2GHz). All it needed was caps. Sold the board for an nForce2, kept the processor and that was the basis for his first computer.
