    I need a stock Intel s1366 cooler (stock only) for a project I'm working on.

    Does anyone have one that they're willing to send my way?

    EDIT-
    NVM- board is toast and I need to go another route....

    Sorry to hear that Bud :(

    At least the rig you won last challenge will keep you crunching for awhile too...

    EDIT- NVM... board is toast so I'm going to go another direction

    Starting to build a new cruncher to replace the rig I'm donating to the current WCG challenge. Here is what I have so far-

    [​IMG]

    Any body have anything to donate to the rig? The full system will be donated eventually to a future WCG challenge after it crunches for me for a couple months.

    I'll likely have something for you (psu, case, or ram). I'll contact you after the challenge to go over what I have left in the parts bin ;)

    Sears has some, but I'm not sure how small they go. Home Depot might, also.

    Ok, finally getting the 1045 system shipped out to @kenkickr today, and starting to look for parts for the new build. Norton I believe is getting me a Thermaltake Urban T21 case (cost of shipping). @ThE_MaD_ShOt , if you got a cooler and/or a HD laying around, I could use it. Looking for a PSU, RAM, and maybe a HD and CPU heatsink (depending on exactly what Mad Shot has laying around).

    Remember people, I'll only use this rig for 2-4 months, at which time it will be donated as a future WCG challenge prize.

    Bill should be able to hook you up with a cooler, too. He can probably send it with that case for not much more in shipping.

    I could probably hook you up with an HDD. I'm assuming you need DDR3 ram?

    Yes, DDR3 is what I need, and I would appreciate the HDD. I'll probably get Windows 8.1 for this rig, as much as I dislike that OS (heh, I can get it for $70 though college.)

    believe I have a Mugen 4 coming with the case from Norton.

    It would be from the Microsoft website, Windows 8.1 Pro for Students.

    You may have some luck picking up a copy of Win7 from another Team member.... ;)

    Does anyone have an extra copy of Windows 7 or 8/8.1 that they would be willing to donate to @BarbaricSoul 's build?

    I was lucky enough to get windows 8.1 pro for free at my school since it was used in some of my classes. I can also get some server versions as well

    ELMS was a student program that allowed you to check out some media from the library or buy discs at a very discounted rate. I think I got XP for $10 and Vista for $30 or $40 when it first came out.

    Also, if your a current student you can enroll for Dreamspark:

    https://www.dreamspark.com/Default.aspx

    If your college or university is enrolled in the Microsoft Dreamspark program the students can register for an account with their .edu email and get free software and training.

    I would definitely prefer to have 7 over 8 or 8.1
