Default Info on processors

KB80521EX200 SL255 256K

I was given these two processors, and and I can't find the information on these EXACT ones. I have found info on very similar processors around, but not these specifically.

From what I gather, they are 200MB processors with 256KB L2 cache.

Does someone have or know where I can get info on specifically these?

Any help would be extremely appreciated.

I feel like it might be bad etiquette to ask, but does anybody want them or can anybody find any use for them? I would like to know that they are being used for something good. They were given to me, so I never tested them myself. They did come out of a working computer. They are clean and appear to be in great physical condition, they are matched, and they come with their cooling fans.

Let me know by PMing me.

P.S. I think it would be nice if there were a forum within this site for things like this. I posted a thread in Lounge asking for other people's opinions. If anything, can somebody point me in the direction where this would be more properly posted?

Unfortunately there is not much call for PPro cpus these days. I have six of them, all rated at 200MHz. One has been working well for 7 or 8 years now. It is overclocked to 233MHz and still giving good service running my home ECMNET server and a client. One of the other five is the expensive 512K cache variant. It won't run reliably at 233MHz and the extra cache doesn't compensate for the lower clock speed. The remaining four came out of a Compaq 4-way system which was otherwise scrapped a few years ago.

You may be able to sell them on ebay. People will buy the strangest things.
