    I'd be willing to test one in my X58 3X SLI :toast:

    Will be posting to Norton most likely. And then if they don't work for him, the idea is to keep them moving till they find a home where they do.

    If it works out- I can test them both, use one of them, and then get the other one moving to another Team member ;)

    Sorry- broke my Thanks button today :rolleyes:

    That sounds great.

    Depending on how much you'd be looking to get for them, I could certainly see trying to find another cheap LGA1366 board--basically, I could scavenge parts from other systems and all I'd need is a CPU & board to get another system running :toast:

    And I broke mine too :shadedshu

    Let's see if they work first before you start hunting down other pieces- and cost is a non-issue ;)

    Oh of course. What CPUs (model #) are they?

    But if they work fine for you, I could certainly spring $75-$150 to bring another i7 online :)

    They're my old Xeons L5639's. So one of them may possibly not work at all on a single socket. And if the other works.. there's no guarantee a motherboard is compatible with it. They work together on an SR-2.. but not sure about any other configuration so that's why I've gone about calling it a "test".

    If that doesn't work out with Norton, I have a high end Gigabyte board that I know supports the Xeons. It also supports the ECC registered memory as well.

    Crap!!! Woke up this morning to my system not crunching! Took a look, and there were 0 WU's in my Boinc. Took out the App_data file, rebooted, and now all is fine.....Well other than there are no work units for the video card.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Alright fellow crucnhers, I have setup a f/s thread with some nice combos. I have crunched or are currently crunching on them so they are rock solid. Crunchers will get discounts. Clicky for linky. Reason for sale is I am trying to fund some upgrades for my main rig which will lead to other stuff for sale later. Also one of the combos (matx am3)I will sell as it is pictured, case and all, for a little extra money on top. :toast:


    I also posted this in the team thread. :toast:

    I could use some DDR3 RAM for my i7-920 rig. Basically anything would be great--even if it's just a single 1GB stick, that would be enough for what this system does (I don't like seeing memory usage in the 85-95% range--that can't be good).

    I have a 350W if that helps :( It would work without a GPU in the system if you need to just get one up and running.

    I have a Thermaltake 450w without any of the modular cables and a 650w Antec that I'm saving for an upcoming dual-CPU build.

    I may be able to pick up something tomorrow, but no guarantees.


    t_ski, shall I look and see what I can find?

    This is going into a build with an xfx radeon r7750 double dissapation card, so I will need at least something in the 400-450W range, but if I go a little higher I have the potential to add a second card. Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated! :respect:

    That thermaltake unit he has would work great if you could find some modular cables!
