    Well, you are up on the list :toast: I might be able to send you some, but not anytime soon bro. Got my mom at the hospital and a lot of stuff going out. I have to hopefully get ed's HDD out tomorrow, but I would have to look for the fans. I'll let somebody take care of you for now, if when I find them and get things sorted out nobody has taken care off you, I will if I have the two fans around here.

    Okay, after spending some time formatting HDDs for crunchers, I realized I have a 20GB I don't need. It's IDE and I pulled it from a Mac, you'd have to DL some special drivers to format it, as when Windows 7 installs drivers "automatically" it doesn't show up. (Read as, I'm too lazy to deal with it/someone else could use it more than me.)

    So, if someone want's it, I'd be more than willing to at the very least split shipping with you in the US.

    Hey, if my Mom was in the hospital, I'd be worry too, it's just kind common sense.

    I wish her that best of luck. My Dad had to learn to walk all over again when he got his knees worked on. So I know a bit what your feeling right now.

    Hmm, I am still looking for that Mega 1156 mount. I can also make use of a 1156 mount from any Xigmatek Cooler- looks like they are interchangeable. Thanks!

    Not sure if there's any interest but I decommissioned my Skulltrail and I have the mobo, CPUs, RAM and am looking to pass this on to a fellow WCG cruncher. The mobo is fitted with waterblocks for the CPUs, MCH and Southbridge/NV200 chips. The mobo is dual socket LGA771 and supports FB DIMM DDR2 RAM only. I have no idea what this beast is worth these days but it's a solid producer and runs 24/7 at 4ghz inside Intel Vcore spec. For the Folder/Cruncher this mobo has 4 16X PCIe lanes. It's a beast. eATX form factor with dual 8 pin mobo power so it requires a serious PSU.

    PM to discuss. I am not going to list it for sale. Thanks.

    Currently in need of an AM2+/AM3 motherboard with 140W support for a fellow cruncher. If anyone could please PM with what they have available that would be great! Thanks again.

    @CD

    Okay, turns out I don't have the 20 GB hard drive I posted about before. Needed it for a crap mac for a friend.

    But, I have a 40 GB that someone could have for free. IF they need it.

    [​IMG]

    Edit- I think it may be a "green drive" as it would spin down when not in use, I had it hooked up to my rig for maybe a day because I was too lazy to remove it after I formatted it.

    I need some DDR2 RAM please :) The cheaper the better!

    A single 1gb 800 DDR2 would be great, a 2x1 set would be spectacular.

    Hope someone can help me out.

    Wherever I can find the iron.
    Now that I've downgraded, and sold one of my i7 rigs, I'm looking to optimize the crunchers that I do have. I currently have an s775 cruncher at my inlaws that is running an e2180. I'd like to upgrade it to a Quad for crunching. Anyone with a Quad they could sell me so I can squeeze more juice out of this cruncher?
