Hey guys, I have a slew of 933 MHz P3s (I think around 6 or so) that I have just lying around. I was wondering if you guys have any idea of what to do with them or some kind of project I can use them for. I was thinking a quad-CPU system, but apparently the chips only have one CPUID bit so they can't be in anything more than a dual-core system. Any ideas?

I have more PIII than I need. You can do Dual CPU mode with the the klamath, the coppermine, the server version of tualatin and the PII (!)celeron socket 370 PPGA.For chipsets its possible on 440BX on some VIA chips and all serverworks PII and PIII chipsets.Intel 840 has problems in SMP mode if the CPUs are tualatins.If you have a 2 slot mainboard you can fill the second slot with an empty slot 1 to socket 370 adaptor. Its theorectically possible to use tualatin PIII-M CPUs on desktop boards and overclock them but the neccessary adapter has not entered production.
