Hello Ladies & Gents, I'm downgrading due to losing my job recently and being officially skint I'm looking to keep some form of rig but also free up a bit of cash. I've been meaning to put these parts up here for a week or so now but I've been ill so haven't had the energy or the time.:shadedshu RULES Bank Transfer Only I'm not looking for any trades UK Only Prices Include postage for the UK No offers please, these are great prices!! MY HEATWARE PICS Spoiler All items will be sent in their individual,original boxes. Anyways, the items are - £135i5 2500k The 2500k has been a great gaming chip, good for overclocking and runs cool with a reasonable air cooler (I've never tried the stock cooler). This particular chip is not the greatest 2500K in regards of what voltages it needs for overclocking. I have run it briefly at - 5GHz @ 1.44v was fine for a 30,000 3D Mark run but was not stable afterwards. 4.7GHz @1.385v and was very stable but I felt it was too much voltage for a 24/7 overclock. 4.5GHz @1.31v load, 24/7 is what I settled on and has been solid as a rock with no bsods. It comes in the original box with the stock cooler. 3D Mark 06 Result 30,001 ------------------ £65 Asus P8P67 1st Revision NOTE - THE MOTHERBOARD IS A 1ST REVISION WITH THE POTENTIAL CHIPSET FLAW Obviously I have to make you aware of the above fact. However, it has been a very solid board with no instability problems. It was pointed out that the date for returns to ASUS for a revised B3 stepping board has now passed, therefore I contacted Ebuyer to see if they can replace the board but unfortunately they are not able to. I have given the item a considerable price drop to reflect the fact that it is a 1st Revision board. As you may, or may not be aware, the ports potentially affected are only the 3Gbps SATA ports on the chipset. The 6Gbps SATA ports aren't at risk. I have used all of the four Sata 6 ports, both on the Intel & Marvell controllers, with no issues since purchasing and it has been perfectly fine. I have never used the Sata 2 ports. The bios is great, the boards keeps cool and has clocked my RAM and processor just fine. It is very stable and runs cool. A bargain item to get a Sandybridge build up and running on the cheap. ------------------ £30 G-Skill 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 Ripjaws 1600MHz CL 7 The RAM has been excellent, very fast and it runs cool. At 1.6V I have run it with it's XMP profile of 1600MHz 7-8-7-24 2T At 1.65V it will run at 1866MHz 8-9-8-24 2T without any issues In all honesty, it can probably be pushed more but I never mess too much with RAM due to the minimal impact it has on gaming performance and I always want 100% stability. _________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________ Gigabyte HD 5870 1GB Reference Graphics Card £100 PICS Spoiler A powerful reference card. I have used it at 2048x1536 and 1680 x 1050 resolutions and it played games fine at both. Stock cooler and standard bios with no raised CCC limits. It's not the greatest clocker, I managed 950/1250 but needed the voltage bumping. With my 2500K @ 5GHz that produced a 30,001 3D Mark 06 score as I detailed earlier. It's also not the coolest running card but I'm sure, with a bit of TLC and fresh thermal paste that can be rectified. It's not what I would call noisy and plays most games at their max settings, all in all, still a very capable DX11 gaming card. Make sure you have a sufficient PSU, I have run it on my 650w sandybridge rig without any power issues. It comes in its original box with a crossfire connector. _________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________ Antec TruePower 650W Modular PSU £50 PICS Spoiler It comes boxed with all the original cables. Only 7 months old.Has powered my previous 1090T rig and this current Sandybridge rig with no issues and they have both been overclocked. It's very quiet and has been stable as you like. Part of the mesh sleeving is ever so slightly frayed on the main power cable but this is purely cosmetic and will probably (as it is in my case) behidden out of view once it is all connected up in your case. A bargain for a powerful, solid PSU.
