@Norton, do you need fans for the rad? I think I have like 3 Corsair 120 quiet fans I can kick in. Pretty sure only the red rings but I'll double check.

If that is all you have, I have blue and the white rings that I could send in case the winner wants a different color than red.
Actually I could just send the rings right to the winner if it would be easier.

I cant find the drive, I am just going to buy it off ebay. I will look for a 128gb SSD.

He's been away from the forum since last week and I'm not a member over there. Any volunteers willing to get a message out to him?

This is a nice idea! I can help out too contributing towards a cpu. I haven't seen any decent deals for much lately. Since the board is an h150 w/o OC, we could look for a regular locked i5/7 cpu too. I'll keep my eyes open even more now.

I might be able to source an OEM Windows 10 Pro key through work. We usually have a couple lying around (sometimes used, but we can keep trying).

EDIT: This will be done legitimately, of course.

That is a great idea @theonedub !!!

And actually aren't you close to a Microcenter or Fry's? Either of them usually sell the i5 6500's and 6600's pretty cheap.

If Nic can grab one close to him we could all shoot the funds to his account so he could pick it up?

this i5 6400 is $175 Not Too bad.
The clocks are a little disappointing for a locked CPU though.

@stinger608 I checked Frys and their price isn't really any more competitive than NE or Amazon. Factor in CA tax and USPS shipping and it makes more sense to buy online and ship directly to the system builder for sure.

Yep, that makes sense bro!

If needed, I have a Microcenter about 100 miles away in Denver. I can run down there to pick one up if the price is much better.
The one and only issue would be that it would probably have to be at the end of March. Not sure what the time line is for the build, but I would be more than happy to run down there.
I'll probably be running down there that weekend (April 2nd) anyhow. I have to pick up some parts for a client build so it wouldn't be like I am going out of my way. :p

Oh hell, did I order the wrong one? Damnit! I was hurrying at the office and just slapped it in the cart. If you guys would prefer the other, I am more that happy to have that one returned and get the other one. I feel like a moron now.

I'll cover the return shipping so we can get the 80+ gold one. Just let me know.

Teach me to do tech stuff at the office, but I was trying to get it there ASAP.
