    I believe I have two 8Gb sodimms from my wife's decommissioned laptop.

    I think Spartacus may still have an EVGA 3060, which is just under 8" in length. I purchased two of his cards, and they arrived in great condition.

    Corsair 5000D Airflow - $93 @ Woot

    I really like the HAF series. I used a 932 (I think that was the number) for several years, until my aging back decided it didn't want to lift it off the ground anymore and turn it on its side for monthly dustings (dog hair, you see). I have since moved everything to the XB Evo, and it is so...

    Upgrade from a 3600?

    My son recently upgraded his 2700x to a 5700x on a b350 Tomahawk. He noticed a large uplift in gaming, since the 5700x allowed his 3070ti to stretch its legs a little more, plus the 5700x did not throw as much heat into his small room as did the 2700x.

    Thermalright Peerless Assassin 120 SE $35.90

    I don't use pbo or anything, just run my 5950x at stock. But I cpu mine with it, so I keep the fans at 100% (noise doesn't bother me) and this cooler keeps my CPU in the mid-70s, while fully loaded at 4.3-4.4Ghz. I don't think I could ask for more, considering how little it cost.

    Uncharted code for Ryzen 5000 holder - $14 - SOLD

    I upgraded my kid's pc to a 5700x, but he has no interest in playing this game, and I don't have the time to do so. If someone else was thinking about purchasing this game, drop me a PM. My Heatware moniker is the same as my user name here, and I can take either Paypal or Venmo. Thank you for...

    Further Big Price Cut on AM5 at Newegg, Amazon, B&H Photo, and probably others 7950x @ $550-$555 and 7900x @ $474

    Have these lowered prices convinced anyone here to upgrade their 5950x setup to a 7950x build? If so, did you sell your old system to help offset the upgrade cost?

    Thermalright Peerless Assassin 120 SE $35.90

    I got the Thermal right Peerless Assassin 120 SE for my 5950x. I have a case with decent airflow, and I CPU mine on Nicehash. I run the CPU at stock speed, no PBO or anything else on. I keep the two thermalright fans at 100% for best cooling. The CPU runs at 100% load while mining, with an...

    LF: Graphics Cards, CPU's, Motherboards for High School Esports Team

    I can't help you with gpu's, but I have the guts of a couple of systems I used for hobby mining until a couple of months ago. You would have to determine if they are useful enough or not, if you don't mind paying for shipping. 1. The first system is one I currently have in the freebies thread...

    Moving from 3800x to 5900x any comments?

    OP, if you are upgrading solely for gaming and still have a chance to return your 5900x, you may want to get the 5800x3D instead. Hardware Unboxed did a nice video pitting it against the Ryzen 3600 and Ryzen 5600x, both with a 6600xt and a 6950xt at a couple of different resolutions. You may...

    AIO or air for midrange system?

    The peerless assassin 120 is really nice for the price. I use it to cool my 5950x and it does the job well enough.

    Thermalright Peerless Assassin 120 SE $35.90

    I use this cooler on my 5950x, and while cpu mining on Nicehash and the cpu is at 100% load, my cpu tops out at 80c. I run the fans on full speed for better cooling.

    My AMD Ryzen 5950x is a beast of a CPU! I cruise with averages around 4700mhz. Extremely happy with going with AMD instead of INTEL for gaming / prod

    I was able to score a brand new 5950x on OfferUp for $400 a couple of days ago. This lets me max out my system and skip a couple of upcoming generations. After selling the 3900x it replaced, the upgrade cost was small, and the Thermalright Peerless Assassin for $40 from Amazon keeps it plenty...

    The [H]ardForum Perpetual Freebies Thread

    No one has taken me up on the offer to take this locally, so I am opening it up to anyone who wants to pay for the cost of shipping. Just be aware that the only place I have time to visit during my lunch hour is Fedex, and the last time I shipped a component (a gpu, that time) it was around...

    Are you selling your GPUs before ETH merge (proof of stake switch (9-15-22)

    I sold one of my 6 cards, two more will go to upgrade my sons' pcs, and the other 3 I will keep to do some spec mining.

    The [H]ardForum Perpetual Freebies Thread

    Could anyone in the Houston area use an X58 system? I purchased this on the forums last year, from Kamikaze, and it has been the heart of a two-gpu mining setup. Since I have dismantled the setup, I no longer have a need for it. I am not certain if I still have the owner's manual, but I did...

    If anyone in the Houston area needs a Helium miner antenna, I have an outdoor Rokland 5.8 dbi model you can have. I used it for about 5 months before I purchased a higher gain model. I may still have the pole mounting brackets to go with it. It is about 3 feet long and made of fiberglass, I...

    Starlink Public Beta About to Happen?!?!

    We are looking at doing something similar in a year or two. We have been in Houston for over 20 years, now, and we want a place where there are less people, and no HOAs.

    Local Houston WTT: AMD gpu for Nvidia (mining cards) - Trade found

    Posting here, as I have had no luck on local sites: I have been mining for a few months, and I would like to do an even trade of one AMD gpu for an Nvidia card, in order to have more diversity in my setup. I have a couple of 6800 non-XTs (reference model and a Sapphire Pulse). These have been...

    Would it be naïve to sell my Vega 56 for $$$ to buy a better card "when" prices fall again?

    That system should be plenty enough to start playing around with mining. I mined, for a bit, on an old Phenom system. The cpu was too old to mine, but the gpu worked just fine with Nicehash.

    SOLD: Zotac Rtx 2060 Gaming 6Gb

    SOLD - I purchased this card from my local MC on 4/26 (for $499+tax), and used it until I got a decent-ish deal on a 6700xt a few days ago. I can provide the receipt, if so desired, and I have the retail box and all material it came with. I am asking for $480/shipped and Venmo is my preferred...

    CPU situation for 3d artist

    There have been a few 3950x cpus show up in the FS/FT forum (recently) in the low $500+ range, from users that have upgraded to Ryzen 5xxx. That is a significant cost difference vs a new 5950x, if you don't mind buying used parts.

    WTB: DDR2 SODIMM, 2GB+/stick

    Yours for the cost of shipping, probably $5-7. I could ship them out on Tuesday, during my lunch break. The residue on the memory chips on the one module is from the tape that held it into the laptop it was pulled from. Sorry for the bad pictures, but they come from a cheap phone. LMK

    Where do I buy a 5700xt nitro+??

    My local MC had an open-box Nitro+ for 400 just a week ago. Doesn't help you now, but there may be a few going through the channels, if you can keep an eye out for one.

    Gone, to ThreeDee - I have these ddr3 sodimms that are not being used. I tried to give them away, before, but never heard back from the gentleman. If anyone wants them, they are yours for the shipping cost.
