    Hey guys. I'm in serious need for a bunch of motherboard screws and standoffs. I'll certainly at least pay for shipping.

    I have a single SLI bridge sitting on my desk.

    Paulie, how many stand offs are you looking for? I think I have a few around here

    Well, just found out my Opty 165 (skt939) is working. Problem is, none of my local suppliers have a mb. So, either I buy a mb from someone here, or sell/donate the chip to someone who can use it.

    Seeing as shipping is going to be pricey, this might not be feasable, but lets see. (I live in South Africa)

    The chip has been lapped, and only ever overclocked by 200 mhz.
    I would like to keep it, so let's see what can be organised.

    Need a waterblock to go along with that board? I can ship it to chicken patty and he can include it along with the board.

    Tempting.
    Having issues with the mb I was using to test, so let me see first what the culprit is before I start spending.

    The one issue is there is no decent wc gear available here, so I'd have to order from the states, so I'll have to see.

    Ok. If the mb I have is knackered, I'll have to get another, so then might as well go for something newer. It's for a Xmas present for a young lady.

    If it's the chip, then there's no point.
    PSU is a 650 Coolermaster, and the gfx card I pulled out of another pc today, so that should be fine.

    Idle temps for the cpu were 38 deg c in the bios, but I'll check that.
    But am I correc that if the pc just completely shuts down after a few min, the PSU or mb are the likely culprits.

    EDIT: If Velvet's keen on the block, he must take it. Don't think I will be getting wet anytime soon.

    That's not true. He just wants to make money off you :p

    j/k. He's sending me a CPU back. I forgot to fart on it before sending it to him and now the CPU won't overclock :(

    usually i do, but sadly only when im near her.... we live 600km divided, and i have no car. travelling is very expensive in Germany. a simple. bus to her, costs 80 euro for both ways.
    atm our relation is pretty stressed, and im somewhat handcuffed in my doings.
    This Girl is everything to me... she is the reason, im alive,that i still want to live, and that i still fight. and shes the reason, i ever considered buying me a new rig, it was a dualcore 4400+... without, i would have never grown, from a person, that can stick a rig out of random parts together, to someone, that sometimes knows a little secret, which is giving a few mhz,a few hours of stressfree time more or even someone, who is good for a laugh, and making jokes.:)


    the poor CP. i bet he fears to send me something, now, that my countrys customs, fucked up his free drive:eek:
    luckily, its difficult to break a block. i may need to do a conversation with cp;)

    again, sorry for that CP! i could have informed, it must be sent as present. my mum told me, that the american ebay sellers, from which she sometimes buys stuff, also always send their items,packed in Gift-, or regarding the time of year: christmas paper;)

    it turns out that i can't run my 5kBE above 1.28v without it overheating(running a stock heatsink from a phenom) maybe a good cleaning and reseating with fresh paste will help that(i sure hope so if not i will be back with a request for a heatsink :eek:)

    This is way off topic, but I think this would have to be his significant other.


    Otherwise this would be a Germany or Florida type deal.
