I am about to inherit a vintage socket 370 Asus Black Pearl mobo. I would like to build a nice P3 rig off of the board but I have the CU not the TU, fcpga not fcpga2 so I can't run the 1.4 tualatin I want. I have found a pin adapter to make that happen though but I am worried about it's stability. I plan to slap a water cooling block and possibly a Peltier cooler on it and overclock it as much as I can and I need to know the slocket will not present a weak link. If it would I'll throw a coppermine in there instead and throttle it up as much as possible.

p.s. please spare me any "why are you wasting your time", "get a P4" etc remarks. I do what I do because it entertains me. Wink

I've seen slot-to-socket, but not socket-to-slot. What one did you find?

Oh, wait...that's not a Slocket you're talking about really, just a fcpga to fcpga2 adapter. I don't know what they'd be called, but a slocket it's not. IMO, the Powerleap and Evercool are the only ones to consider. I've used a Powerleap for a Slocket, but never needed one for socket-to-socket2 so I don't know first hand. But, they work as advertised.

i dunno, your motherboard might not be compatable with that proc. id look at the mobo specs first.

a slocket is to allow you to plug socketed chips into a slotted motherboard. Powerleap, Evergreen, and a few others made them for both the Pentium III and Athlon back in the day.

I, too, have seen and used them, they were a good idea. It pretty much looked like a socket soldered to a vertical PCB that gets inserted into the Slot 1 slot. Worked well enough I guess, though you'd be pretty hard pressed to find one nowadays.

Ya, but I have no idea on a socket-to-socket. Mind if I get this moved to the hardware folder for better assistance?

I initially asked in the hardware forum, I got more posts here though.

Ya, I just passed by that thread a little while ago and saw it. Pretty odd that a lot of folks haven't used one. I guess that kinda shows that MPC forum members are pretty new to the hobby, because a lot of folks used these things about 3 years ago.

Gotta link to the one you're looking at? I'd like to look over it. They do their job perfectly I feel. They support the new voltages and multipliers fine and there's no real downside that I know of. I used the Power Leap in a Slot1 board so I could use the 1G that came out, but I wanted to keep my board at that time. I was building an AMD dually at the time and wanted to focus on that more than anything else. I think it cost me $54 at the time, but they should be much cheaper now.

This one

http://www.upgradeware.com/english/prod ... /370gu.htm

In a reveiw I read they didn't even have a socket 370 test mobo, they plugged a socket 1-socket 370 adaptor into the board then this one into the previous one then the processor. I wonder what kind of creative bracketry was required to attach the heatsink to that stack.

I've use both slockets ans socket adapters and there are two things to keep in mind.

1. Use their heatsink if at all possible. A standar cooler will not work due to the thickness the adapter adds.

2. If you must use a after-market cooler, be sure to keep the weight down to a minimum and make sure the cooler has the ability to adjust for the thickness of the adapter. A heavy cooler may damage the socket or adapter.
