    Also got a few items here that I am planning on getting rid of. Mainly stuff I have been keeping just for backup. I'll get a list and some pics later on.

    If anyone is interested I'll have the i5 760 + Ram + mobo from system specs rig up for grabs on the 1st of March.

    This time I'd be happy to ship internationally. So if interested shoot me a PM.

    Thanks Kiex. If CP still isn't feeling well, maybe he can give one of us his sign on so we can update the OP.

    I have a bunch of 100baseT switches to give away - and I'll even split the shipping with you. Most are NIB (new in box), others are used but working. All are either 5 or 8 port.

    Will do. The alternative is to make a contest thing for it, although won't have time to organise it this time around.

    I will most likely have the contest rig covered, once I can figure out if I can or not I will then go ahead and let you know, you set up the last one right?

    I don't see why not. As long as BOINC will run, WCG should. (There are also numerous hosts running it)

    Well I agree, and seeing as Windows Server 2008 R2 is based off of Windows 7 or the other way around, it should run. Just wondering if anyone has had any experience running it on a Windows Server 2008 R2 system.

    I will be selling my last remaining X58 cruncher soon, so I'm offering it here first. I have the following parts:

    1x Asus Rampage 3 Extreme
    1x Intel i7 920 (C0)
    1x Corsair Dominator GT 1866MHz 3x2GB

    Happy to let them go separately or as combo. All of them would be a special deal for crunchers or folders. I'd like to keep the prices to PM's.
