Intel Pentium 75 Processor - SMASHED!

Intel Pentium 75 Processor - SMASHED!

Introduction

 

On Friday 24th of November Mr.Tweak and raTus set out to do an easy task of turning a Pentium 75 chip into a keyring. We started of with a Ryobi drill and drill bit which turned into a hammer and nail punch...

 

 

We thought this powerful drill would do the trick...

 

 

We tried a little harder...

 

 

The outside of the chip seemed resistant to the drill bit, but the inner core struggled to hold of the drill's power...

 

 

After drilling through the initial core, further into the core the drill again struggled with the immense strength of the core. At this stage we were getting rather annoyed with the chip so that was it's last straw... As The Terants would say, "You shit me to tears!".

 

 

We had to show the inner core who had the upper hand, so we got out the old hammer and nail punch to give some good old fashion punishment...

 

 

I think you can see who clearly won in the final - LOL! The hammer and nail punch were victorious...

 

 

Cameron "SOV" Johnson said he wanted us to send this processor back which he sent to me for a joke... So, we have packaged it up and are going to send it back to him... :)
