    Hey guys I wanted to test the waters here. I usually sell on OverClock.net (where I have the highest trader rating out of 50K members lol) but I really like this Forum and thought I would see what happens.

    I will post a mess of pics soon (you know I like to post pics lol) but basically I want to sell off the key components of the SKullTrail.

    For sale is the Intel D5400XS dual socket771 Motherboard in original package with all accessories (and then some lol). I paid just under $700 for the board alone. Check Provantage.com for currrent price.

    As part of the package I want to sell a pair of Xeon E5420 proccessors. I paid $750 plus for the pair. Check Provantage.com for current price.

    And the final equation is the 8GB of Transcend CAS5 FB DIMMs (DDR2 800) which I got direct from Transcend.

    The entire rig is just a few months old and in immaculate shape.

    The mobo is fitted with MCH and SB waterblocks

    The CPUs are fitted with FuZion waterblocks.

    Here's my rough calculation of what I spent:

    Mobo: $680
    CPUs: $750
    RAM: $250
    Waterblocks: $300

    Total cost new to me: $1980.

    Asking $1500 shipped with insurance in the CONUS.

    PM me if you are interested.

    Thanks :rockout:

    I am not parting the rig unless I sell each component as they are all required to make it work.

    I have a few waterfall reservoirs for sale still. I have them listed on my store...but I would give a 20% disc to members here. PM for details.

    I spend aprox. 3-4 hours per res if you consider all the steps involved.. Unless I can find a way to assemble faster I can't see selling them any cheaper: size is not the factor controlling cost.

    reservoirs run about $20-45 USD, you could make some money if you sold a waterfall or volcano in personal consumer size your only competition is a tube or cube lol. keep up the good work and don't worry this barebone will sell it self :)

    lol...well gotta wait and see.

    I wish I could understand how PC vendors make a profit...the margins are tiny.

    It cost me MORE than that to get them laser cut. Yep. My pile of parts costs more than a res you could get from PPC...then I still need to put it together and test it.

    Well I have to make sure I can find a buyer for the Core: CPUs/Mobo/RAM. Although I have some people interested in the RAM and CPUs I have yet to find a Skullhead that wants the mobo...

    When I get that accomplished the rest will go up for grabs...

    Everyone asks that. It works great.

    Think of an F fitting...that's all it is: two "F" fittings. For some reason everyone thinks that the top card gets no flow. The top card gets less flow...but it evens out because it also restricts less on the exit...so the temps are withn 3C of each other on all the cores.

    This way you provide the same temp water to both cards instead of passing warmed water to the second card capiche?

    Try it out with some tube and fittings...the end of the line will spurt more water...but the penultimate outlet still squirts...


    I made a pair of ball valve manifolds with 3 outlets. The closest one flowed about a third as high as the end one....but reverse that on the return and the sytem balances.
