I saw some units a few months ago in German evilbay, but I lost the chance to grab one. :(

You still got their numbers?

I wonder what they were listed under??

I'm subscribed to world-wide eBay listings for what I thought was all possible combinations of 68040 I could think of (effectively **68**040****) and I never saw them. :unsure:

I thought I'd dig this up again... even though the OP has been banned it might be of interest to others.

Like others I was very interested in trying out this mythical cool running 040 so I thought what the hell and bought an MC68040RC40A L88M on eBay a couple of weeks ago. I finally got around to fitting it on my A4000Ts 40Mhz WarpEngine this morning.

I'm going to dispel the myth: it's not really cool running. It runs finger-burning hot and really still needs to be actively cooled. So as it still needs a cooler you'd do just as well with your existing 040 chip. Disappointing.

Of course this is just my opinion and your mileage may vary. But if you're tempted just save your money or buy some beers with it instead (y)

Cooler than an earlier 040?: Probably.
Cool to the touch?: Certainly not.
Worth a little extra money?: Debatable.
Worth a lot of extra money?: Certainly not.

Are you sure you didn't get a fake reprinted chip?

(Not that I have any experience of the L88M chip) :coffee:

That doesn't matter, please can you start your own thread for it? Otherwise the feedback system won't work.

I'm going to close this thread now.

Thanks!
