    My little celeron cruncher is refusing to upload Wu's. Time is correct. It also has two computational errors sitting there not uploaded.

    I think I forgot to mention previously, but I am leaving for FOSDEM 2014
    If any machines I run chokes up, I won't be able to do anything until I get back. Which will be very late on 3rd of February.
    I am not leaving today, no, but I also going to be too busy during the time I am still home with the preparations I still got left.

    Thus, see Ya next week! :toast:

    EDIT: Aww suh-weet! this is my 1111st message :clap:

    Lets just say I got myself a really good deal on a single socket asus rog lga2011 motherboard. I am looking for a cpu. I am seeing some sub $200 6-8 core ES cpu's. What are your guy's thoughts on those.

    EDIT: Oh wow. There is a $60 4930k on ebay. Listed as new. 88 sold the last 24 hours.

    $60 for a 4930k? Yeah jump on that :laugh:

    There are going to be a lot of eBay cases opened in a short time. ;)


    But, good score on the mobo! :toast:

    Edit: now you've tempted me to give one a shot

    BNIB $60 4930 free shipping out of china so something fishy... but buyer protection is really good. The seller has 99% feedback out of 3000. If any crunchers want the link just let me know. 115 sold already. I got two. Might resell if they test out good.

    Just be weary of "buyer protection" from international sales, as it's not the same. I got pathetic help from eBay on a crap Korean monitor.

    But you have a point; I'm tempted. :D

    Look at that. He is. He also mostly sells pet stuff, such as dog collars. Also has a 2tb hdd for $30. My money is in ebay's hands.

    If these are the real deal, at that price it would be amazing to bin for an awesome 4770k!

    and a PS Vita w/game and memory card for $35

    I'm estimating that he's raked in about 20k in payments for more than 100k in goods for the 4 items listed.... someone is trying to fill their pockets

    I bought a couple CPU's from a couple of Japanese sellers. It takes forever, and a day, for delivery, but, both CPU's were top-notch and worked just fine. Best deal around, was from Japan.

    Just my two cents.:rockout:

    Actually, one was Chinese, my P4 2.8 GHz, was from China. Took over three weeks to get it. Turned out to be one of the most reliable CPU's I've had. Was on for 24/7 for nearly 6 months, no hiccups. Check my Specs, that's the one!

    I hope you get them!!! That'll be an awesome addition to your board.

    Did they take down the listing? I can't seem to find it anymore :confused:

    Was worth a shot at least. Oh well.
    Anyways. What do you guys thing about those cheap ES chips. ES means they are not supposed to be sold. They are clocked lower than the regular chips. Then tski had that board that just went out possibly because of bad ES chips.

    Keep in mind bro, that if it shows up after about March 2 it would be too late to file a claim through PayPal!!! I seen some folks on another forum get screwed big time on one of these types of sales. "If it too good to be true" kind of deals.
