    Bog-

    That seems pretty messed up, but I guess there are always going to be people who take advantage of others.

    On a side note, I wish there was a way to request items here instead of making a WFF thread in the other forum.

    very well thought/said.

    Speakin' of that, although It wasnt free, I still have a E7200 i bought of Paulieg, he sold it to me because I promised I was going to crunch. Paulie, don't worry buddy, its still here, I just need a board and it'll crunch away bro. I expect to have it running in the next 3 weeks. Money is just tight right now. When I do get it running, it will replace my AMD cruncher, same thing, just that the E7200 should pump out better #'s :rockout:

    anyone have a Socket A mobo they can give me? I have everything else(CPU,ram,HSF,PSU,HDD) the mobo i killed awhile ago.

    @bogmali you wouldn't be talking about me would you? If so :( i would say thats not true i was crunching/folding with that hardware as much as possible till the mobo died. now i am trying to get a replacement


    also how much for one of the 120mm fans shipped? It would be great in my main rig(that folds and crunches 24/7)

    I have a socket A mb pulled from a compaq computer, but one of the outer retention tabs is broken and obviously it offers no OC. If you want the specs I can dig them up.

    I would love a couple of those 120mm fans ;)

    There are (6) tabs on a socket A MB that the HSF retention clip latches on to. On the board I have one tab is broken, specifically the bottom right one if you go by the above picture. The board used to run my old Sempron 3000+, I have no means to test it, but it worked fine the last time it was powered. I should also add it is Micro ATX with 3 PCI and 1 8x AGP.

    I wonder what holds the socket in place on the board? Those coolers can put a lot of pressure on that...

    POS-not you bro, you are actively folding man and crunching:D

    I have an MSI KT3 Ultra that I can unload along with an Athlon XP 1800. LMK if you want just the board or both;)

    This thread was a good idea but it seems stagnant... I will donate $20 towards the purchase of any CPU bought (to crunch) from the B/S/T Forum by an active good standing cruncher (as long as the seller* doesn't mind and this is ok with forum rules, of course).

    Lets keep the crunching effort and 'Pay it Forward' alive.:rockout:

    Now that I will be adding an i7 rig (next week) to my E8500 rig, I am in need of a router. Anyone have one they don't need?
    Can't wait to crunch with an i7:)

    What kind of router? Basic 10/100 wired ethernet or something wireless?

    You can make a router out of an old PC with a bunch of network cards using Windows internet connection sharing, if you have any old computers clunking around, give it a shot...

    I'm almost ready to go i7. Getting a Gigabyte board, a D0 i7 920 from MicroCenter, and some cheap DDR3. I'll be crunching with it for sure. When I sell my 775 stuff, I will send a little rebate to the buyer if he/she crunches with it for a few weeks or so.

    I have a wireless router you could have. You just need to pay the shipping.

    Is it wired as well? I think most of them are. I am not too excited about wireless. But if I can connect both rigs via wired I will gladly pay for shipping!
    Let me know how much. I will PM my address to you:)

    Thanks Paulieq :toast:
