Lol, wut? I'm not complaining about anything, just trying to educate you on the value of your hardware and get you to realize your mistakes so that you can make better choices and have a better future. The fact that we're posting links to $4 CPUs means that while they may go for a lot more, they go more frequently for next to nothing. The finer point's I'll leave to Dan's excellent posts above me.
If you price your system right like everyone is saying, it will sell, and this problem will go away and you can get some hardware that's more to your tastes, budget, and imaginary power consumption ideas. byusinger has 1U Xeon E3v3 servers in the F/S forum for very little that will use less power and have good enough performance for you to continue learning on so you can get yourself out of this spiral.
Have you had any bites to your sale this time around?
Remember: $350 and the madness stops. I have heat, I have paypal, I have a home address in the US. But now that I see I can get a 2699v3 or 2680v4, board, and 32GB Reg for about $450 if I avoid the weird Chinese boards (I need expansion slots, anyway), maybe I don't need to keep letting you know you have at least one person interested.
Woot did you say. LOL
