Hi Everyone;

As you may already know, a long-time and well-respected member of our community was lost recently to cancer. Mark Klebofski - a.k.a. MKMods - spoke words and gave teachings that were heard all over the world. Even TPU's servers don't have the capacity to hold all of the kind words that can be said about Mark.

There is a fund that has been set up for a Computer Lab in Washoe High School (US). I stress that if anyone has the ability to contribute financially to this cause, then please, make this your first port of call. Details can be found here..

There are some of us that are financially disadvantaged ourselves, but there is still a way we can help out in Mark's memory. Some of us UK TPU-er's have begun talking about putting together an MKMods Tribute Rig, and donating it to a lesser fortuned family or a person with a disability that needs a rig to communicate through Social Networks.

The kind people here have donated some parts towards the rig; but now we need a little help. The TPU community is a great one, and this is reflected in the actions of our members:
First, many thanks to Israar for helping to get this idea off of the ground; his advice has helped greatly in getting us this far

Parts we have
  • A DVD-RW drive has been donated by Bo$$
  • HDD(300gb) has been donated by KieX
  • A Q6600 G0 has been donated by scaminatrix
  • A Retail code for a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium x64 has been donated by qubit
  • OCZ ModXStream Pro 500W by gumpty
  • Asus P5QPRO from FreedomEclipse
  • Some more ram from gumpty
  • Cables and fan's from moonpig
  • Coolermaster 430(best case in the world) from NdMk2o1o
  • OCZ Vendetta 2 from FreedomEclipse
  • Logitech MX 600 by v12dock
  • Money for a GTS250 from Sasqui

Thanks to everyone so far, and thanks in advance to everyone else. I, for one, am proud of what we can acheive when we come together.

If anyone has any questions be sure to pm me or scaminatrix or even post on this thread if you think it will be useful.

The recipients are NdMk2o1o's programming friends - http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2259782&postcount=12

Thanks to scaminatrix and Israar as well as all the donators for making this brilliant idea a reality.

Rig Has been delivered!!!

we don't know for sure what we'll need as we don't have a case or a motherboard yet but if you can make a list of what you've got we can include it in our build and it will help us plan ahead

we don't have anyone to donate it too, in fact we were planning to use this thread to discuss finding someone.

I'll put you down on the list of possible's for the case.

not much really, we'd prefer it if they held on to the rig as it would be disappointing if it ended up on ebay a few weeks after we'd built it and we'd prefer it if they were near to someone who would be willing to build it as postage for a full sized pc would be very expensive and the person that builds the rig would have to be willing to either pay those costs or deliver it themselves.

Well the family I have in mind are close friends of mine, and 2 of the most genuinely nicest people you could meet. They are both studying full time and have 2 small kids, the bloke is also looking for work sthough not having much joy in todays climate. He is studying to be a plumber and she is doing her A levels and also may have an apprenticeship as an programmer. As you can imagine money is scarce, I take for granted being able to jump in my car whenever I want and not worrying about petrol or buying shed loads of beer and bbq food on the weekends when every bit of money they have goes into paying for their bills and making sure there kids are fed (as it should). They currently have a single core p4 emachine with 256mb ram and something with a lot more oomph for their studies and programming would absolutley make their year. But obviously if there is someone else less fortunate this could help then thats fine as it is a charitable act but I though I would throw out a suggestion.

Sounds good, if you could draw up a list of their needs/what the rig will be used for, we could tailor it to their needs :)

Well to be honest being as they have a cruddy old P4 anything is going to be a big step up, it will be used for programming, office work, internet and possibly some light gaming but that is not important. I just thought I would mention them as I said they are 2 of the nicest people I know and it would be nice to be able to do something like this for them, i know it would mean a lot.

I must have been away when the news about MK was made... :( That hurts, I've bantered with him in many threads and really liked his style and what he did.

I don't have much to offer off the shelf...
I have two ASUS X38 boards, but both have issues because of a PSU that killed one, and damaged the PCI bus on another.
A large box of fans
I do have a Tualatin chip and an ABIT AG8 board + 2 GB of DDR1 memory

If any of that may be of use, let me know... Thanks for taking on such a good cause.

Is it only the PCI bus that is affected on that X38 board? I assume it has onboard sound and it's likely you could get away without using the PCI slots?

Yes, everything else appears to be working... I think. I can't recall if it has on-board sound, but I do have the PCIe sound card that came with it.

Be glad to ship it free.

BTW - It's the X38 Maximus Formula with a Rampage BIOS

That Abit AG8 was one the great boards of it's time. Look here it even has the Third Eye capability. :rockout:

Yes, the Abit website is still alive and kicking, even though the company is long gone. :p

What do you guys reckon to this CM 930? it's £10.99 & £11.99 shipping, though am a bit confused as he lists shipping and on another bit says collection only??

£22 for a sweet looking case, though don't know to much about the 930 ....... but £20 will get you a flimsy POC on ebuyer and dabs etc so thought I would see what the bay throws up

:toast: very generous, damn I love TPU man, where else does stuff like this happen on a regular basis? :eek:
Hey, what goes around comes around... this site is the best. Where to ship?


That Abit AG8 was one the great boards of it's time. Look here it even has the Third Eye capability. :rockout:

Yes, the Abit website is still alive and kicking, even though the company is long gone. :p
:toast:

It was the *ONLY* 915 board with DDR400 and PCIe - that I could find. The only problem is the PCI bus divider limitaton, it hits a FSB wall at 247. Other than that, a great board.

we don't have anyone to donate it too, in fact we were planning to use this thread to discuss finding someone.

I'll put you down on the list of possible's for the case.
If you need a retarded disabled noob to donate it I'm in! :p

Just kidding and I really think that it is a good idea to all put something in the rig.
For the mobo there is a lot of cheap ones on e-bay.


He gonna be missed. :cry:

Really wish I can donate something, I donated a DVD drive for a build we did for Mark once a while back and god knows I would do it again but my situation right now is very bad economically and I really can't spare anything. :( You'll are doing a beautiful thing, shows how great the tech community is. :respect: :respect:
