    Anyone have a 95W X6 sitting around that they don't want? I was looking to replace Lauren's current X4 with one.

    Also if someone knows where I can get a 7970 used for a good price, let me know. ;)

    I would let it go but I have a board on the way from Jr to install the 6 core in the vulcan. I may take this extra AM2 chip and sell it as a combo or help another cruncher out with it.

    Yup, if anyone has a board he can borrow or have while his MSI is out for RMA, would be great.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Okay crunchers I have a s939 board up for anyone who wants it. Just pay shipping and it yours. But it has a little flaw that doesn't hinder operation as I have been crunching on it well since I started crunching until about a week ago when I replaced the flicked thing with a x4 setup. The flaw is that about every 4 months or so you will have to replaced the bios battery as for some reason it drains it down. I do believe it is a bios issue the can be remedied by replacing the $12 bios chip. I never replaced it due to the fact It didn't really bother me that much as I have a stash of bios batteries. Also the thing will not soft off which also maybe cured with a new bios chip. Other then that the board is rock stable and everything works on it. The x2 proc and memory in it is not up for grabs as I have it going to another member here, pay it forward.


    Oh the board is a Asus a8n-e pci-e board. Non-SLi.

    Big thanks to ThE_MaD_ShOt for sending me out his spare WiFi Adapter at no cost- only a couple more days to deal with my dying USB stick. In the years of Folding and Crunching the only hardware I have had die are USB WiFi adapters :laugh: This is the second or third one already.

    You are very welcome Dub. I too have a couple dead ones laying around. But they are so easy to setup with linux. Just plug it in and your done. No driver disc to mess with and no software to fool with.

    by chance any got a couple of power cables? Like a molex to p4/8 (cpu power) I mainly just need a 4pin for the cpu power but a 4/8 would work also. I got ahold of a psu but its missing a few cables like that one which I need to get another rig (1st ever s775) running.

    I would attempt to making some up but I don't have the stuff to do it. I figured I'd see if anyone has a few before I go that route. Its for an old ultra psu. So if anyone has a dead modular psu laying around and can't use the cables. I sure can lol.

    Have a special request- if any member has time, can they check their local CL for a replacement keyboard for an Acer Aspire 3680?

    I have one that I would like to get back up and running, but the keyboard is shot and the one Prime Amazon Fulfilled supplier has a track record of sending the wrong one :laugh:

    dunno. let me check and see if that 8pin would plug in somewhere so i can use the 4/8pin. Unless i mod the cable to get it to work lol.

    edit* yea, that'll work. The psu does take a 8pin that I can put that in its place and use it for cpu power instead of gpu. Thats one of the ones its missing other then 2 other molex's, 4pin and 2x6pins.
