    Since this isn't an official FS thread, I've removed any prices. If there's something you're interested in, pm me. Thanks.

    Thanks CP, but you might have to edit some of those things out. Initially I had only posted a description and price so I could get some opinions on whether or not I was asking a fair price. I figured I would have to start a normal FS thread to actually sell stuff. I don't know if people got that part or not, but it was called to my attention that I hadn't included pix and that since it wasn't an FS thread, I shouldn't post prices.

    You see, I can't remember what I did last time. I think I did an FS thread and then gave a discount for crunchers, but I didn't like doing it that way since in a couple of instances more than one person had an interest in an item and I wanted to give crunchers first crack at a discounted price.

    So I thought that this time, in addition to getting a reality check on the prices, I would alert the team to what I had (or technically, was going to have) on offer. But that didn't work out either.

    So I'm going to put up a standard [FS][US] thread later today and go from there.

    I would still appreciate some input on what people here think are fair (undiscounted) prices for the stuff I've listed (shipping to continental US included). Otherwise, I am going based on completed ebay listings for the same or very similar items and have picked prices toward the low end of the range (if there is a range). None will be the lowest price - just pointing in that direction.

    As far as prices I'm out of the loop, but they seem okay. If you want to give a cruncher a discount, then you can just shave $10 off or what not. :toast:

    I don't see how a monitor or lack thereof would make a difference, but run the Easy WCG config program in this thread, that should solve your problem.

    It doesn't look like it's plugged in. Maybe that's the problem. :roll:

    Just kidding. ;)

    I have my rigs set to check in every 2 hours but for some reason they will sometimes accumulate as many as 60 or more completed work units before reporting them. Data is uploaded and they are ready to report, but don't get reported. The easy config file fixes that by having completed units reported immediately. I'm happy to let the the server and client negotiate when they report though so I don't worry much about it. Either way is probably cool though.

    I've been running one without a monitor for almost a year without any problems. I do have WCG easy config installed and it uploads as soon as they are finished.

    I've got 2 atoms crunching away for over 2 years now both with out monitors.. 1 just crunches and the other one i've got mounted in the ceiling that outputs to a projector i have hanging from the ceiling which doesn't get any air flow. They do a little better than the athlon 1700+ mp's I have crunching. :toast: Just ensure that you have HT enabled in BIOs. :toast:

    Also you can remote desktop to them or use VNC.

    If any of my fellow crunchers are in need of an AMD AM2/AM3 cooler, I have a Thermaltake V1 that you can have. Just shoot me a few bucks for shipping.

    If anyone has a extra SSD sitting around, or heck, even a better normal HDD than my current one. Let me know. I'm just looking for cheaper options other than what's on the egg.

    I could use a decent PSU for my Phenom 9500 rig. The 350w SP doesn't seem to cut it. I get random hangs and the PSU runs very hot.

    So something 400w and from a reliable brand.
