    WTB: i7 Haswell; 4790, 4771, 4770, etc.

    Looking to pick up an i7 Haswell chip. To be (probably unnecessarily) specific, any of the following would fit the bill: i7-4790k i7-4790 i7-4771 i7-4770k i7-4770 I'd also like to snag a couple 8GB DIMMS, either DDR3-1333, or DDR3-1600. This is all going in a low-end system running at stock...

    I'm having some touble with an old Socket 939 board...

    Thanks for the thoughts everybody, but this puzzle has exceeded its capacity to amuse; the board is headed for the recycler.

    I'm having some touble with an old Socket 939 board...

    I did. Correct. There was literally no change when I used a discreet video card. No offense taken; I think we've all done dumbass things like that once in a while. :) Thanks for your thoughts, though.

    I'm having some touble with an old Socket 939 board...

    WTB: 939 Opteron

    Right on. Thanks man. Do you happen to recall what model it is? I seem to recall that 165s were pretty common around these parts because they were a really good value, but I'm really hoping to score a 175 or better... Thanks again!

    WTB: 939 Opteron

    Yeah, I know; it's a bit of a longshot. But my need for a low-end system for a tinkering project just happens to coincide with me getting a bug up my butt to do some vintage high-end OCing (because, eh, why not?). If you've got an old, upper-end 939 Opty laying around (if somebody actually had...

    100% Working repair for Gateway XHD3000 30" LCD monitor

    Necrothread! My monitor was strobing; no bands of color, no grids or distortion, et cetera, just a rapid on/off strobe effect. So, I opened her up and (after confirming all the caps were in good shape) I baked my board at 375 for 8 minutes as so many others here have. Unfortunately after...

    Somebody buy this man's crap. $130 delivered for brand new modules? That's at least $40 under retail!
