    I may have a Rosewill RV2-700 available at some point but it won't be real soon. I'll drop you a PM when I get ready to unload it to see if you still need it. ;)

    Hey guys!

    I'm looking for a WD 250gb SATA to put back the raid 1 in normal mode on my sista computer, which is my new cruncher :) x4 635, running 30%. I just put an APC 550va on it, to keep it safe, now I need an HDD.

    I've bidded on a brand new WD Blue on ebay, but I don't think I'll get it for under 20$ :/

    Pops, I have a few PSUs (Antec 550w, Ultra 550w, 3x Antec 650w) at home, but I'm not going to be back home probably until October. I'll see if I could get one mailed out to you in the meantime.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Okay guys, I am feeling the need for another Crunchers Helping Crunchers project. The last one went very good and couldn't have been done without the help from you guys. Now I just want to help even more. So My buddy Norton and I are looking for ideals for the next Crunchers helping Crunchers project. This time I would love to be able to incorporate more awareness to what we do and the projects we work on into it. So if anyone know of someone who can use a hand or an Ideal of what we can do, post up and lets try and make this happen again.


    And I also want to send a personal thanks to all of those who donated in the last project. We really really do appreciate it and without your support we wouldn't have been able to get it done. :toast: This is what builds and maintains a team and I am very proud to be a part of this one and to call all of you friends.

    Thanks Brandon. Just make a list of what you have and pm me with it. I'll let you know at a later time what we will need from it. "toast"




    Also as a side thing we can do. I like Cp's and Ion's ideal of crunching in other's names to help them out. Even though F150 is at the top of the charts I would like to see if our team can pull together and help him reach his goal. That's depending on if he would like for us to help.

    I really have alot of MISC stuff and making a list would be painful. Why not make a list of parts needed and we can rummage through stuff to see what we have?

    Somehow I wasn't able to get in on the last project and I would like to avoid that happening again. If its a build, I volunteer to buy the Source 210 to house it in.

    Cool ideal Brandon. As of yet and since we are just getting off the ground we need to figure the project out and all the details. If it is indeed a cruncher receiving a build I would like to do as it was done the last time and kinda keep it a secret/surprise. So If there is someone needing a rig plaes pm me with the details and see what we need to do to make it happen.

    Thank-you dub and we will sure get back to you on it we will let you know when this happens and what needs to be done.

    I don't have parts, but I'll pitch in a few bucks to buy something. Let me know!

    In the other hand, I'm building a 3rd cruncher. Have only a AM3+ board, need everything else, let me know if you guys got anything laying around.

    Do you think we should break this out into a separate thread?

    Crunchers Helping Crunchers- Back to School Project or something like that.

    I'm in for whatever is needed- a Mobo maybe?

    +1 to that.

    I remember in the past we use to have contest for just about a complete rig with all parts donated from members. Maybe CP can resurrect one again sometime.

    I agree that we need a new "sticky" thread for this.

    Maybe something along the lines of "Fall 2012 system donation," or something along them lines. Each time we do such a project we should make it a sticky until it is completed and delivered. This will make it easier to keep track of the projects.

    Of course that is just a suggestion LOLOL

    I can look, if my old 160gb SATA is still good. I t was in t he computer of my bro, unpplugged, cause he was making freezing his system. I tested 2 days ago, no bad sector, short, long test went good with WD utility, no smart error.

    I guess he had trouble with his SATA cable..

    I'll double test, if you haven't found any, I could send it to you, I need a 250gb but found a 400gb on my side. Instead, I have a couple 80gb at work, that we won,t use it. I can spare one ;)

    Thats awesome. I've always to get my hands on a dual/server board. never messed withthem and would love to play on one and figure them out.

    sucks being in my current situation still. Hopefully someone will grab it soon so I can stop thinking about it.
