Hey Raptor! Good to see you!

I was really interested in those SR-2 boards and wish I had space/time/money for one. Seems like you should be able to drum up some local interest.

What's up everyone! I haven't been around in a long time. A lot has changed, I don't know if this is the right place to put this but I'll give it a shot. I looking to get rid of my SR-2 with 2 x5670's and my Supermicro 2042g-6rf server with 4 6176 se's. I don't know what they're worth anymore. Any help would be appreciated, or if anyone is interested make me an offer.
I remember when those machines were destroying the daily pie charts, nice to see some OGs popping in :toast:

I'm going to give it a shot locally, but where I'm living now i don't think there would be any takers.

They still could if some one buys them.:D:toast:

OK, I'm officially in the market for a new dualie server. But I need the help of those of you that frequent the for sale sites to help me find what I'm looking for.

I want 2 20 or 22 core Xeon v4 ES or QS chips that are at least B0 stepping. To give you an idea of price, currently on ebay there are 2 2699v4 for $1100 each with B0 steppings. But I'm too cheap to pay that much. I came close to pulling the trigger on these but I just couldn't do it. I knew that by the time I bought the m/b mems etc that I'd be looking at $3k easy. I'd like to build the system for around $2k. That means I'd like to get the chips for around $1500 for the pair. But I'm flexible, up to a point.

So if you see something, say sumpin, as the PSA goes. I will do my best to reward you with either something from my hardware stash or something else from my bag of tricks. ;)

The lowest I ever saw the kind of cpu was 800 some months ago, was on ebay.

That would be in my price range. It just seems that the best deals tend to show up on forums rather than ebay. I guess because there's better seller/buyer reptuation and also because there's no commission that you have to pay.

Also, I'm prepared to wait. I'm hoping that when Ryzen come out that might put some pressure on prices. Not sure why it should unless AMD has plans for double digit core chips - which they probably do, just not at launch. But I think you get a lot of enthusiasts who bid up the prices on fleabay so that might suck some of them out of the ES/QS market.

I dont think I ever saw one of those 20 or 22 cores cpus on forums. Not everyone can afford something like that.

If you're paying for them, I guess but some people have connections and I think get them for cheap or in trade. That's what I've heard anyway. I've never actually known anyone personally but I know it's a very close knit community. Personally I don't think most of those chips every see the light of day. At least not this early in the game. I think they get distributed to friends and friends of friends first to use before they every actually make it onto the market. But again, this is just my own speculation.

I mostly see the ES or QS models. Lots of those are sold on ebay for 1k or so.

I am posting for my friends kid who just built his 1st desktop with a i7 7600k but ran out of money.

He built his desktop last night but he figured that the 7600k does come with a heat sink but it doesnt and ran out of money.

He wanted me to ask on here if anyone has a Intel stock cooler with the socket 1151.

I'll sure dig around. I believe it's the same as the 1155 and 1150?

Seems I had one for a G3258 1150 chip.

That's only a 53 watt chip. The 7600K is a 91 watt chip. Needs a copper core HSF.

Your right man. The G3258 fan has a copper core but I think it is a very small one.

Here's some of the hardware I have to offer. I'll donate this stuff to my fellow crunchers only for free if you're willing to pay USPS Priority shipping cost. No parts list at this time, I know some things will be hard to see, pm me with any questions. Thank you :)

Fans,
Ducts,
Psu/sata cables,
Cpus,

Mobo,
Pci slot covers,
Gpu/cpu coolers,
The logitech wireless keyboard is missing the transmitter.
Wifi g box
Wifi n router

Other stuff I'm sure..

I just pulled a stock cooler but if the rig is going to run boinc or something similar I wouldn't recommend it. It was running at 90C. Switched to an Arctic Cooler, direct touch model and now at full throttle temps are 60C.

Why does the option to edit a post expire? that's kind of annoying.
