There were still some places selling them when I was checking, and some on ebay...but the prices werent really worth it for the lackluster performance they offer these days.
ALL4AMD said:lol i got the k7oc device. used it to find my max stable speed on my 750 slot Athlon tbird then did the resistor mod to make it always run that with the case on.
Whats is funny is i got it for a 9th grade project and ended up getting an A cuz my teacher had no idea what the hell i was talking about. all i did was talk about clock speed vs voltage vs temp.On the Lam said:Yeah, I think I had the k7oc one as well. Took my 500 to 700. At the time (1999?) 500's were going for $300 CDN & 700's were going for ~$700 so it felt pretty good. Cracking open the case was a little nerve racking tho.
Anyways, athlon classics can be had on ebay for like ~$5 plus shipping, so I'm wondering if I should build a fleet of overclocked athlon classics
