    WCG Members,

    TPU does not accept any post about buying, selling, or trading items outside of our BST thread. This thread can only be used to give away items going forward. Also, postage has to be free as well. Thanks

    There have been some reported posts which engaged the mods in a discussion. The end result is that we (WCG members) need to stay within the forum guidelines for buying, selling or trading items. This also goes for all WCG threads (and all threads total in the forums).
    xvi and Mindweaver say thanks.

    Ahhh ok thanks for clarifying it. :) Just was curious since we had been helping each of the team members out over the past years when they are in need.

    You guys can still help each other all you want. There is no problem with creating a BST thread and giving a discount (or whatever) to other crunchers. It was just a loophole that needed to be closed as there was no way we could help if one of you got burned by someone who started crunching just to take advantage of the fact they could sell outside the BST rules.

    It was also inconsistent as people wanted to know why they could not do the same in other sections (like general hardware).

    If anyone has any questions just drop me a PM and I'll be happy to elaborate if needed. :toast:

    I've been entertaining the thought of finding a LGA775 Core 2 Quad to replace a Duo too, but would also like something to replace a Phenom II X2 550.

    I'm surprised these processors seem to hold their value a bit.

    Those core 2 quads are such great overclockers. My friend still have his q6600 overclocked to 3.6 and sees no need to upgrade to something better. He just upgraded his gpu to a amd 7870.

    All credit goes to Xazax for the find! Three days left. CoolIt ECO II Liquid Cooler (apparently the same thing as a H60) at TigerDirect for $10 after MIR (normally $20) with $5 shipping for one and up to $8 shipping for three.

    Can't find any information on what mounts it is compatible with, but it looks like 775. Also important to note that it's been reported that it does not come with a fan, but I'm sure most everyone has a 120mm fan laying around these days.

    Edit: Found what looks to be the correct datasheet which implies that AM2/AM3, LGA1366, LGA1155, and LGA2011 support seem to be "standard".

    MIR is good for up to 3 coolers.

    Rebate terms:
    Rebate option:
    Looks like reviews on Tiger aren't generally favorable (no fan, mediocre packaging, etc), so they're probably trying to offload it. Hard to find the cooler anywhere else. Found a discussion over on Overclock where people seem to say it's similar to high end air cooling.

    Thoughts?

    That's what I was thinking too. Shouldn't be hard to craigslist it for most, if not all, my money back.

    Am I insane? Microsoft, they're like the largest software company in the World, right?

    Why then...IDK, they talk about this 8.1 preview as being a snapshot of the real thing to come later in the year.

    So, now it is out, this 'snapshot'. Take a look at what this 'snapshot' is!

    If those, currently, 36 pages of problem posts don't paint the picture for you, the answer is this:

    WTF? Microsoft? Is that synonymous with tiny soft headed millionaire suits conning us all with, 'This is better than That?'

    This guinea pig is not happy, not at all happy with Microsoft, right now.
    8.1, so far, is a bust. :mad:

    Too impossible to beta test everything internally, so they have to send it out as preview. That's why you never install on a critical machine (only on test equipment/environment).

    Geeks.com usually seems to be the "stupid inexpensive" answer. I remember my dad picking up an E-Machine with, I believe, a P3 Celeron for ridiculously cheap back in the day.

    Anyways, I found this.

    Thanks - I believe that's the same one Norton sent me. If anyone finds something a little bit cheaper, let me know. If only I had a few more bucks in my paypal (or someone bought the dual Xeon rig I have) I could afford to keep my 2600K and put it up as a cruncher.

    Start a WTB thread over in the B/S/T section... there may be a few folks there that have something cheap for you as they move on to the new sockets ;)

    I have one cruncher here that it was offered to. If he doesn't buy it I'm going to keep it ;)
