    Yup. Shipping is a major issue for us poor plebs in far off places. But sometimes it's worth it.

    I need a Chipset cooler for my Nforce 430. Due to temps i can't overclock my X2 4200+ above 2.4ghz. It has been tested on3 boards up to 3.1ghz stable and the board its in can do 320+FSB (or what ever its called on AMD) when it was sitting in front of a Window AC(no longer live in that house so don't have them anymore)


    BTW if for some reason it doesn't fit on the board i could use it on my P35 board as the chipset gets toasty on that too

    Guys, just so you know lately the rules for this thread have been really really flexible as far as who can ask for parts and stuff. I strongly suggest that if anybody wants to help out you take a look into who is asking. Things are going to be a bit watched now so keep an eye out for you own selves!

    Tim, you're up for that chipset cooler :toast:

    Just to elaborate more on what El Capitan was saying, please do not ask him to put your name up for a specific hw that you "need" and you do not "intend" to crunch with:eek: Read the title of this thread, plain and simple, it's crunchers needing crunching hardware! If you're asking for stuff here and yet you're not crunching, (and I do check the stats on a regular basis) it's called "scamming". Because you're basically taking stuff from people who paid with their hard-earned cash. I don't know about you all but the way I was raised that is called "stealing". We won't stop you all from helping out others but please watch who you give your stuff to and make sure they're using them for the right intentions;)

    I agree with CP and Bogs post. If your not crunching or not going to crunch please don't ask for parts.


    what about people that fold? Would it be ok for them to ask for hardware?
    but anyone can look and see that i am crunching and folding:)

    Folding and crunching pretty much go hand and hand, if you're not doing both you're doing one or the other;)

    P_O_S_-stop being paranoid bro:confused: everyone knows what you've done for this team;)

    I have no issue at all with folders in this thread, not at all. It'll be a pleasure as a matter of fact. Tim, just so you know. You are backed by TPU 110% bro. Captain approved :D

    Also bog, thanks for elaborating bro. I haven't been home much at all, most of my posts these past two days or so have been from the phone rather than from home. Trying to make my posts and short as possible.

    I've got a little bit of a guilty conscience.. I asked for a DVD drive a while back but I made it clear it was not for a dedicated cruncher. Should I refrain from that in the future?

    This is not intended towards anyone in particular. Those that have done so know who they are. You crunch hard man, you are good. However, in the future let's try to keep this thread what the title states it is. Things have changed a bit, one is nice, advantage is taken. Nothing personal bro, just a general statement.
