    I try to offer stuff up when I can. However, I don't hold a candle to Bogmali. He has even bailed me out a time or two. By the way, anyone need a 2GB set of DDR2? I've got a 2GB set of Ballistix dying to be used in a cruncher. Just pay the shipping and they are yours. :D

    Also, I'd like to thank CP for creating and managing this thread. I think this will take the place of my "Pay it forward" thread, which is good since I don't have the time to maintain the thread.

    if you add them to the shipping from bogmali, i promise to buy an am3 board next month !:D
    (a ud4p), so i can pair them with my old proc and my actual board, or as long as there are parts missing (only a few, not expensive,board has igp) with 2 other ballsitix i own, in the 939 board i get... is that a deal? ;-)

    you all are damn friendly, but paulieg made me weak with saying they die for a life in a cruncher:D if things work out well (christmas), the x2 the will get replaced with a nice,cheap regor, or even x3, if the prices drop:)

    anyways, a hell of a bunch of freaked out idealists, and friendly crunching athlets!:rockout:
    thanks for every bit of help ive got!

    Hey Paul, circle back to what Velvet what was saying about the radiator coming from you (was there a res in there as well?), I offered to fork out a rad so the one you are sending to him you'll be sending to me instead to save shipping costs. PM me if you have questions bro.

    Asrock X58 eh, is it the same one I have?

    Hey Bog, send me your address, and I'll get the rad to you. No res is coming. I'm actually in need of one myself. So, if anyone has an extra res, particularly a Swifty Micro res, send it my way!!

    I think it's the same board, the Supercomputer. Couldn't resist. It was $100 off open box at newegg. I was going to try the Extreme, but it sold out too quick.

    Yeah. the Extreme is a cut down version of the Supercomputer, and a heck of a lot cheaper. They sold out while I was mowing the lawn Sunday. :banghead: It's all good though. I got a good deal, if the open box is a good one, and it nudged me to finally buy an SSD. :D

    I've got an OE PSU (Bestec ~250w), that powered my E2200 comp and the Sempron 3000+ just sitting here. They should still work too. Maybe I will see if it will fit in a different box and just add a bunch of foam peanuts and bubble wrap :laugh:

    It might actually work! Although I am a little hesitant because the PSU might damage the MB in shipping... Let me know if you are interested and I will figure it out.
