Not looking put down money if avoidable. I have some DDR3 8gb 3200 kits and SO-DIMMs to trade. I also have two older HTPC cards with one that isnt officially supported in W10. An AMD HD4350 and an Nvidia GT210 also up for trade. (The GT210 is supported in W10 but its not passive)

Must be able to decode VP9, Be passive and have all the regular I/O ports. This is an output only card so even if its rocking DDR3. so long as the processor is good for things like Blu-Ray. We can see if we can work something out.

AMD or Nvidia -- I dont care. let me know what you got.


I think one of the spikey corsair vengeance kits have had the heatsink falling off before so the thermal adhesive on them might not be so good. I think it was the 2x4GB kit. It used to be my own back my 2500k days. I didnt realise that one heatsink was loose but it ran fine throughout ownership.

Parts will be tested shortly then tested again before they embark on their epic journey. I know that the GT210 definitely works as my ears are still ringing from the noise the tiny fan makes.... Hence me wanting a passive option (I used the card as a display card to try and restore a friends borked R9 280X)



::EDIT::

2x2GB DDR3 1600 Kit has been withdrawn as it turns out one module is dead. (big whoop lol)

-------

1. 2x4GB DDR3 1600
1. 2x4GB DDR3 1866

ALL SO-DiMMs still available

Please read and follow "READ BEFORE POSTING!! The Rules of this Forum" when posting in the B/S/T forum.

When posting in B/S/T, you must follow these rules:

Only post in a B/S/T thread if you are...
1) Bumping the thread. (Once every 24 hours for sellers)
2) Interested in the item and asking a question only.

Don't do these things in FS/FT threads:
1) Argue over whether prices are fair, or...
2) ...say that something else is cheaper elsewhere.
3) Argue with other members.
4) Negotiate the price of an item you want to buy. This should be done through private messages.
