You'll have to get second hand (or maybe some really old stock). socket 7 (and slot A) are no longer produced and even socket A and socket 754 are history now.

BTW you'll see K6's on MB going cheap on ebay all the time. If I was looking for one that's where I'd be looking first. CPU fans for older cpus can be tougher, but they are around - or you mod some other standard fan...

amosf ..... please be sure of what yr saying ..... socket A is still there and will be there for a at least 1 more year .. skt 754 is the new platform for sempron procs .. so yeah that still has a few more years before it comes obsolete .....

as for the orignal post .. slot 7 is very rare now ....... u might be able to find some old stock or used ....

--Edit--

also learn to use the EDIT button ..... its there for a perpose ... double posts isnt a good sign u know .. its a really bad omen

I just bought a brand new socket A and a socket 754, so I know they are not obsolete, my point was more about how many sockets back the socket 7 was and how socket 939 is the new kid on the block... The A & 754 are dead and gone as far as the cutting edge guys are concerned

And I can use edit just fine but sometime people don't go back and read the editted post I fear...

And BTW I did see a new socket 7 MB on a store shelf about a year back, but it had to have been sitting there a while

Depends on whether I had already read it once before the edit. It's all in the timing And yes. lots of socket 7 on ebay, which is the key point here...

For the cpu fan, I think that socket A heatsinks are compatible with socket 7.

I still have 3 socket 7 systems in service. A P200mmx print and mp3 server, a P166mmx firewall and a p200mmx@188mhz desktop... I'll probably upgrade on of thos to a K6-2-500 shortly as I believe I have one coming soon. People dump a lot of old PC stuff here

And I've still seen the bidding go up a ways on a K6-2 here in Oz. It just depends on whether their are people looking for one at the time... Rare items like a K6-III or even a pentium pro sometimes go up a bit as well, tho not so much with the pro these days...

I like cranking up the old stuff as well, and had my first AMD running a couple of days ago - a 386sx25 running small-linux on floppy on 3 meg of ram...
