    In an effort to give back to this great community of crunchers and folders, I'm going to start giving away random items that I don't need anymore. All you need to do is pay for shipping. I'm starting with just a few random items that I have lying around. If you don't need anything, maybe you know someone who does, but can't afford to buy it. Maybe you have something you'd like to give! If you wanted to offer some items for free, I'll add your item to the list along with your user name. Good Karma for everyone.

    I'll be adding more stuff as I find it. Maybe some bigger items too. I think it's a good idea for us each to do this once in awhile. This is kind of a spontaneous project, so it may take a few days to get it organized. So, if it takes a bit to get back to you, please be patient.

    I'll try to update this list every couple of days as things are given away. I will contact members requesting items within a day or two. Members who have asked to have their items listed, please let me know when those items are no longer available!

    Anyone may donate. However, you MUST be an ACTIVE WCG or Folding team member to receive items!! No big deal though, since it's so simple to join either team!!

    Available items:

    Several syringes in Thermal paste-paulieg
    Intel stock 775 stock coolers-paulieg
    Miscellaneous case fans-paulieg
    crossfire and SLI bridges-paulieg
    Random cables (just ask)

    Socket A Sempron 3000 and 512MB Hynix DDR2667-theonedub
    2 ATI Crossfire bridges-Boomstick360

    What size are the fans? Need a 92mm and a 120mm, let me know if you've got it.

    I doubt anyone would want it, but I do have a Socket A Sempron 3000 (iirc) sitting somewhere. Maybe someone has an older rig crunching and needs a replacement?

    You can still donate even if you don't fold or crunch. I'd like to keep the receiving for WCG/folding members only.

    Added a CM mid tower case!!

    As sad as it is, I have AMD's first x64 desktop processor I can throw in. s754 A64 2800+ (newcastle) that I purchased nine years ago brand new and have run everyday since. That's 1.5v stock baby!! If anyone is looking for any cables or adapters I have plenty of those just ask what you may need.

    Decided to move this thread to the WCG section, where it belongs. All of my items are still available, plus I'll be adding a set of Ballistix tonight.

    Paulieg, you never added my 2 items: Socket A Sempron 3000 and 512MB Hynix DDR2667.

    If you could PM me the price for one of the Yoon 120 fans, the 92mm fan (if you found one), and a syringe of thermal paste I would appreciate it.

    Paul-I would like to add a caveat to this (if I may)......

    The intention of this is to provide team members the following:

    1. Help you continue folding/crunching by providing you some "no longer being used" hardware free of charge (shipping cost at the most) if your rig is crippled.

    2. Upgrade some of your folding/crunching with other members' extra hardware, once again, free of charge (shipping cost again).


    This is not intended for

    1. People who are free-loaders that think that can get some free hardware by folding/crunching in a short amount of time and then disappear into the four-winds:shadedshu

    This might not apply to all but I know I have been a victim of someone who I donated some of my HW and then they just kept asking me for more stuff:shadedshu like I'm some kind of a surplus store:wtf:

    So team watch who you're giving your hardware to and make sure it will be used for it's intended purpose:)
