Yup! I sold three dual cores recently, and while I spent some of the money on a new board for my i7-860 system, I still have a bunch left. And I'll probably be able to get ~$150-175 for this system, and I'm hoping to pick up a pair of other dual cores this coming weekend @ ~$25 each
I may have an E6300 available fro sale real soon, as well as a PD 820 and another chip. I'd be willing to cut deals for anyone here.
Wow, that's some crazy hardware, and good job on the moneys!!! It's good to have guys on the team that have all that goodness, so you are a
I'm going to keep you in mind T, because I've been wanting to put together another system for a while.
I sold my last C2D at a 1100% profit--it's a great business, although the limiting factors are space in my dorm room and availability of HW
Did you buy used?
What der herros? How did you manage to pull off 1100% profit? We must learn your ways
FYI- This site seems closer to FreeDC in terms of WCG daily credit accuracy than BOINCstats:
May be a good backup site to FreeDC for now
Indeed I did. I picked up a Core 2 Duo system for $10 because the case was badly damaged, repaired the case, and sold it for $120. I also got an AMD X2 for about the same price, put it in the case from my i7-860, and sold it for a similar price. And usually each system I assemble gets to crunch for a week or two until it's sold
The problem is, I can only get about two systems a month at this price--but that's not terrible, as it's still about $200 in profits a month that I can spend on WCG stuff
That's great! Thanks for posting it!
Here's my "new" Core 2 Duo:
A C2D E7400 running on an Asus P5K-E under a Zalman CNPS9500. I'm currently testing a 3.4GHz OC, which I think is probably as high as I want to take it. It's run LinX for an hour stable, so I think it's good. Maybe I'll shoot for 3.6GHz tonight. I'm going to throw WCG on it tonight
I wish I had a premium 775 board that wasn't an ancient 975X.
No, it still shows me in 24th.
J/K Norton. Yep, that is a great stats site for sure. To bad it didn't have the pie chart like Free-DC does though.
We need a good coder to come up with an easy pie chart editing program. Maybe through M$ Office? Where one could enter the stats and it would automatically produce the pie chart.
I'm working on one with Office- halfway there Done on the names and %'s ... still messing with the pie and slice colors
It's a special board to me--the backbone of the first computer I ever built myself. Then it ran an E6400, but it was still a solid setup
It'll be hard to sell it cry, but I really just don't need it any more.
While it isn't supposed to do the sort of FSB that a P45 board does, it still works quite well
Yeah, I bought a used ASUS P5WDH Deluxe a few months ago, and it has been solid although it doesn't go over ~385 FSB. One of the caps between the PCI slots blew up sometime in the last month or two as well.
Sweet man. I need to learn more about MS Office as it has some powerful capabilities for sure.
Seems like nothing but trouble lately. FreeDC went down, the WU version change, I lost internet for several hours, and now I find my PC had blue-screened.
Distributed computing rewards perseverance and tests patience
But look on the bright side: freeDC went down but we still have alternatives, WU version changed but KieX was quick to supply a solution, your Internet went down but there was work in the buffer hopefully , you BSOD'd which seems like your only real problem. It may have been a freak thing or its just something that a little tweak or 2 will fix.
All's well in rough sailing and it seems we have been sailing in some turbulent waters lately
But I think KieX is right:
It sure does test patience!
Only had enough free time to piece this together and test for 100% functioning parts- will be getting it online probably by next weekend. Can't remember the last time I went so long without crunching
Thinking I might make a bracket to physically mount the radiator, but it actually runs OK with the bottom mount fan This would probably be a great candidate for a genuine sleeving run..
In the words of performance-pcs.com, if you sleeve it, they will come! Thus, I say go for it, it'll look great and be a beast!
That's a ton of hardware stuff in a small box!
What GPU is that you're running?
I just got the new C2D crunching
Passive XFX 512MB HD5450 from KieX (the one he was offering in the other thread). Even sent me the Low Profile bracket
Looks like I got my first few computation errors when my computer blue screened twice :shadedshu Computer isn't sending results cuz my internet is being dumb.
