    Fans needed for the custom case? I got 3 headerless 92 mm fans lying about (could not get them fixed myself), and 2 120mm fans up for donation as well.

    I don't have any suitable parts for donation, but count me in if you need cash.

    The 120 fans would be cool for sure, I have no idea how the custom case is going to look in all fairness, but I'm certain it will have a couple of fan grills!

    Just a quick edit, we're not in any particular time trial to get this all finished within a few days. It would be best to take our time, then we have more chance of getting the parts that would be best for crunching, not to mention that the custom case might indeed take some time to actually build!

    We do of course still need an eu cruncher volunteer.

    And all these people sending money for postage probably don't realise that all that money combined can buy a crazy beastly processor by now :laugh: :toast:

    OK, just saw this donation thread, and I'm too late it appears. What can I do? Any needs not met yet, such as postage, rtc, since it looks like the rigs are nearly complete. I just gave someone else 8 GB of DDR3 yesterday, and that looks like the one part needed on the U.S. side. So, please let me know @Norton

    Any donations towards these rigs are more than welcome- drop me or @RCoon a PM if you want to contribute any of the parts or a paypal contribution. We are currently set on the USA PC but could use a CPU, CPU cooler, and a PSU for the EU PC. We currently have a few folks that have made paypal contributions and are close to be being able to purchase some of the remaining parts for the EU PC!

    Thanks again to this great community for all that you are doing to help this cause! :respect: :lovetpu:

    If things go fine, I might be able to secure a 7870 for the EU PC. Sounds good?

    I'll let you know if it goes through. Might need financial help for this one, though. I'd expect it to be about $140, shipped.

    If needed, I can spare a OCZ Vendetta II with it's 120mm fan, then another Zalman 120mm fan and a 140mm from the Define R4, can pay for shipping in the EU.
    The cooler is for the 775 socket, but I guess you can change the brackets to fit on a 1150. PM if these parts are of interest :)

    Appreciate the offer. The cooler doesn't fit on 1150, so we'd have to find some 1150 brackets that work with it. Brief googling shows people trying to drop these on 1150 with no avail, I'll look into some adapter brackets for now.

    The OCZ Vendetta II is a re-badged Xigmatek SD1283, if that helps.

    I would suggest an AIO for the EU rig just for shipping purposes. Cant imagine hanging
    You have that sort of backwards, the Xig was the clone for the original OCZ design;)
    AIO offer for EU PC sent :D

    @Norton I do not need credit for those parts, you all paid for them!

    @Vinska has been a champ and donated a 650W PSU!
    :toast:

    We're all but done, just need a CPU, and we're almost at our target with money donations. I believe somebody might be dropping into a microcenter once we've got enough for an i7 or a Xeon ;)
