    So anybody got a wireless adapter for cheap? Would like to have it before the competition starts to have the rig reporting as often as it needs to. Stinger, sold that one you had yet?

    [wtb] for new cruncher

    I would like to buy a slim dvd drive for cheap, but in good working order of course. Also I hear that these drives need some sort of sata power adapter for desktop use? I need this slim drive for my new dedicated crucher/folder and it will be mounted in a BYTECC drive tray. (reason for slim drive: Haf-Xb has very limited drive bays)

    As for trades? I am willing to give up this triple rad if anyone is interested.

    I have a slot load DVD burner in my dead Dell XPS M1530 lappy if you want to try something fancy? ;)

    May work with one of these:

    I've got the drive, adapter and Bytecc bracket but I guess shipping wouldn't come off cheap... or fast.

    The SATA adapter on these is very small - IIRC, only a 2-pin.

    I have IDE slim drives, but no SATA. :(

    You can pull an adapter out of a Dell Slimline. This one is IDE, but they might have SATA ones in newer models.

    There's also a Slimline SATA adapter and a slim DVD SATA drive on the Egg. I'd happily trade straight across for a radiator. :laugh:

    Oh wow! and there it is... A decent price for a slim drive by LITEON! I Newegg searched again after seeing this post and it was easy to find. I swear this is a new listing because I search the egg and amazon for cheap slim drives about a month or two ago and found nothing under 50 bucks. :p

    Well this is your average deal for a drive, I think I'll go with it. Thanks everyone for your help, I do appreciate it. :respect:

    It's all good brutha! This new cruncher I am building is going to be rather fancy (haf Xb) and that is why its taking so long to finish. I am using the slim drive so that I can fit an ssd with it in the same drive bay, as the xb only has two total. The second bay is going to have a fan controller for nights when I want to sleep peacefully. Lol!:p I am quite excited about this build because it's gunna be my first i7 / gpu cruncher!

    I guess I have some explaining to do.. :laugh:


    This i7 build consists of all used hardware and months and months of selling older hardware to gain funds for it. The only thing I bought brand new was the case and that was my birthday money back in Dec. I lucked out on the i7 though, bought it from sneekypeet paired with a Gigabyte board for just $150. I simply wait around for those super sweet deals cause I'm in no hurry and because I can't afford brand new parts after all bills have been paid. :eek:

    Binge picked up one from Microcenter for me. I don't think you're likely to find one cheaper than that ;)
