Yeah. It's gonna be a Frankenstein creation.Sounds like you've put in enough time trying to work it already...probably a good idea to get another board, like you mentioned. Personally, because I have a ton of time on my hands (disabled), I wouldn't give up on it yet...visually, if nothing seems to be physically wrong with it, you can usually get it working right again. Sometimes though, you just end up wasting a lot of time. It's tough to figure out when to cut your loses. I guess I'd probably flash the BIOS a bunch more times, clean the entire board again, and inspect with magnifying glass...that's about all I've got for ideas right now. The Dell T1650 case swap sounds interesting...I'm sure you'll give us some pics over in the Dell Workstation thread...right?
I got a thermaltake S300 case, Cooler aster MWE 550 Gold PSU, the t1650 Mobo, su800 ssd and the R9 390x.
The t1650 has an e3 1275 v2 cpu, 8gb ddr3 ram, case, PSU, no HDD. Some Quadro GPU. Got it for $160 cad. I'll have to get another stick of ECC 8gb to make it 16gb and dual channel.
I'm hoping to get at least $600 cad ($470USD) for it. Will thoroughly test it in games.
If the HP Z420 was working, I would have used that for the r9 390x and sell it for $500 CAD and then use my GTX 1070 in the T1650 and sell that for $600. But, oh well.
