    Hello everyone,

    I am starting this thread so that we can try to help each other out on getting some of our unfinished rigs up and crunching.

    If you have an unfinished rig, you can post a list of components you need to get that rig running and I'll make a list in the first post with the member name and what it is that they are missing. This way anybody can see it and help out if they can/want.

    However, in order to qualify for this you need to have an average of at least 1000 points according to the below link. (EXCEPTIONS ARE POSSIBLE) Once at below link you can check the "Average" column to see if you qualify. Purpose of this is to see who really wants parts to crunch or not. This shows some sort of dedication to crunching and gaurantees us that these parts we are sending out will be used for what they are intended for.


    Below is the link where you can check your stats including the average. If you have any questions please ask away.


    PLEASE NOTE, no negotiations in the thread, this is not a FS/FT/WTB thread. Take it to PM if you want to negotiate.

    http://stats.free-dc.org/stats.php?page=team&proj=bwcg&team=22175



    I ask as a favor to help me keep this list updated. If you have already received the part(s) let me know so I can remove the name from the list. Thank you.

    indeed it is. I'm sure there are people that got a CPU and a board laying around that maybe need things like a HDD and some RAM, or a PSU to get a rig running but are short on cash, well if they post it up, i'm sure me and some of the other generous members here can either just give the hardware for as low as shipping, or maybe just a very good price to make some money and also help out a fellow cruncher on saving lots of money and getting their rigs going.

    Let's see how it turns out :toast: Thanks for the help too man!

    Hi guys

    if someone want to sell a pump for my quad I could begin again crunching with it.i'm in canada.

    exemple: swiftech 355 or 655 or something similar :eek:

    i don't have paypal and i'm under a bankruptcy so i'm not rich.i can't buy a new pump here in montreal the price is just too much for now. (swiftech 655 120$+15%tax it just too much for now) so let me know if somebody have a pump to sell.

    thanks
    Chicken Patty says thanks.

    Thank you stanhemi, I myself don't have a pump to donate, but I'll put you up on the list and hopefully somebody will be generous enough to help out :rockout:

    i have an a64 x2, a pair of ballistix, a phenom stock heatsink

    it would be grateful, if someone has parts, to get the a64 up and running:
    - some am2/am2+ board, should have at least some settings to undervolt,and primitive memory adjustments, preferred with igp, because of lacking:
    -pcie graphics card, in case i dont get an igp... performance is not needed. it only should deliver a video signal, so i can activate boinc.
    -some spartanic HD,dont matter if ide or sata,even 20gb are enough, only for OS,Boinc,Everest,some benchprogs
    -PSU, but i hope to get an RMA of my old 550w generic one

    im relatively new, but have soon found my passion for crunching... my outputs with only my ph2 hopefully prove that;) thanks for any kind of help!
    Chicken Patty says thanks.

    these things are hard to kill.. i had one 4400+ years ago, that got 1.6 daily for 7-10 hours, had more than 105c° on one day in summer(shutted down very lately), and got cutted. at last it died, due to my waterblock breaking the edge of the blank die... but it took every torture act with ease :D

    I have several white box / generic atx and matx cases i'd be happy to send out. Some of the larger ones are cut up a bit for extra fan holes and not pretty but they're all functional, most of them with single 80mm fan ports on the back (older style). Cost a penny to ship, but im sure i can find a big enough flat rate box to send them in. Let me know if anyone needs one.

    Just regular cases. Old, mostly white or beige colored atx or microatx (like dells and stuff) cases, though some have been painted or are another color and whatnot. I have probably 10 of them.

    ok gotcha. I actually have a spare case so I won't be needing some, but that'll be great for people with rigs just laying on their night tables and stuff :laugh: get them in a case, keep things organized :D
