The [H]ardForum Perpetual Freebies Thread

I got a bunch of older Office software I would like to give away.

4x Office 2007 Small Business Upgrade
2x Office 2007 Standard Upgrade

They're all case and disc with key. I picked these up to resell over the years but they never moved, and I need the space, so maybe someone here can use them for cheapy giveaway builds for schools or churches or whatever. I'd only charge shipping, of course. Lemme know if you'd like a few.
they're listed as upgrade, I'm assuming I'd need an older version already to upgrade?
 
Want:
Coolermaster 212 "E" screws for LGA115x

Give (pay shipping)
Tyan S2882-D dual opteron mobo + IO
 
I have these free for the price of shipping:

1. 120mm metal fan grill
2. tp-link 5 port gigabit switch tl-sg105 GONE
3. RAMPS v1.4 with Arduino 3D printer board (no drivers included, please know what you are doing when you request this, not responsible if you burn down your house. It works fine as I have upgraded to a different board. Request at your own risk) GONE

Huh, It might be your lucky day, I happen to have part C in that manual. I use the Evo212 on my socket 2011 which happens to not use part C but part H instead, so you can have this part C. Just make sure this is the part you need. Picture of it below and in its retail package:

PM'ed back.

Another freebies in return:
500GB 2.5" and/or 3.5" Seagate SATA drives, just pay shipping. USPS FC should be < $5.

I need to do a bad sector check on both, but I know they power on and detect at the very least.
 
I have a pile of cpus I got here I was going to use for an art piece but never got around to it. If anyone has any use for 20 or so cpus from the athlon era back...they’re all pinned afaik. No promises any work or what you’ll get specifically. It’ll be like a box of chocolates. Haha.

I also have a commercial rainbird irrigation controller I am tired of looking at. If anyone can put it to use without just flipping, lmk. It’s bulky so expect ~$30 shipping.

Free local (Knoxville, TN) pickup--Deepcool Tesseract ATX case (black with blue accents). This is the ventilated panel version (not the windowed version). It's new in the box. I purchased this a long time ago for a build that ended up getting canceled. The postage on this would be a killer, so unless you want to send me a shipping label that's already paid for, this is only available locally. The case looks like the picture below.

This is probably heading to the dump on Saturday (3/2/2019). Please save this from the dump!

Yep. You can use anything from Office 95 and up, you only need to insert the disc when prompted to install. I was originally going to include some spare OEM versions of Office 98 which let the software install, but I wasn't sure if it was okay to offer them here since well, they're OEM. (I realize we can't sell these, dunno about giving them away...)

If a mod says it's okay I can throw one of these in the package.
 
In need of two DDR2 so-dimms for a laptop for someone less fortunate. I am fixing a laptop that has a dead hdd, and it only has 2GB of ram. Going to upgrade it to 64bit win 7 and I am donating a 500GB drive but I would also like to upgrade it to 4GB of ram. Would be super stoked if someone had a couple of 2GB so-dimms they would part with. Please PM me if you have something.
 
Anyone needs Intel Retail CPU coolers for socket 1150/1151/1155? I bought a few CPUs over the years, never used the cooler, so before I throw them in the trash, just thought I'd offer them as Freebie here to see if anyone needs any. Some are with copper core (i5/i7), others are just aluminum (for the Celerons/G/i3).

Free for the taking. Just pay shipping.

Let me know!

This guy is looking for exactly what you've got:

All gone. Thanks for looking!
 
After a bunch of hem-hawing the Veteran decided they wanted to go ahead and order the power adapter for the laptop. It'll be here Monday.

I am now looking for a Lenovo WiFi adapter other than a Intel 7260 currently in my T440. The adapter disconnects frequently from WiFi networks yet an earlier model (3160) I borrowed from a friend works fine using the same driver.

If anyone has a newer Lenova branded WiFi adapter, let me know and I'll pay fir shipping.

And, as promised I have 1 x 3TB, WD Red 5,400 rpm hard drive up for grabs for the cost of shipping.

Does it actually have to be Lenovo brand? Are others whitelisted and won't work?

Also, if the 3TB drive is still available, I'm interested.
 
Has to be Lenovo due to their proprietary nature. Any off the shelf part without a FRU will be rejected by the laptop BIOS.

Drive may be spoken for. Waiting for reply.

Anyone have a couple 1gb sticks of PC2700 or PC3200 laptop ram?

Make sure that the E6550 is compatible with your motherboard, it requires at least a x35/x31 chipset due to the 1333 MHz FSB.

Thank you I did check and it seems to be. It was one of asus' premier boards of the day. If I ever got another which 775 CPU would you say is most widely compatible? Back in the day I owned an e8400 C2D I believe.
 
LGA775 was one of the longest (if not the longest) supported sockets Intel ever released.

It spanned two completely different generations of CPU architecture (Netburst and Core2), as well as several core revisions of each. You'll need four or five CPUs to span the entire LGA775 range because of chipset limitations.

i925, i955x and prior was purely Netburst only (Pentium 4, Celeron, Celeron D and Pentium D)

i945, i965 and i975 was the transitional period and supported a mix of both Netburst and Core2 parts. 945 chipsets were generally limited to 800 MHz FSB Core 2 parts like the E2xxx, while the 965 and 975 supported 1066 MHz FSB CPUs like the E6xxx series (besides the few models which had a 1333 MHz FSB like the 6550 and 6750.)

x31/x35 and beyond were purely Core2 and Core2 Quad parts.

If I were to make a set, I'd get a Pentium 4 530, Pentium D 925, Pentium Dual-Core E2160, E6600 and an E8400. This would get you near the entire range of compatibility.

Thanks for the info! If anyone has any of these CPUs lying around I don't mind throwing a few bucks your way. Otherwise I'll probably have to buy a few off of ebay. I'm guessing 775 will require me to have some DDR2 correct?

LGA775 spanned three memory technologies, DDR, DDR2, and DDR3 late in its life.

Since the memory controller is on the north bridge, the memory required depends on the motherboard. You can end up with weird memory combinations, especially on 3rd party chipsets.

Cool. Pretty crazy it went all the way back to DDR. Doubt we see those days ever again.
 
I have recently seen the light of Corsair's ML fans and I have decided to give up all of my worldly possessions in exchange for the soothing whoosh of a soft white LED glow.

...

Seriously though I've replaced my case fans and gone through my boxes and have these fans up for whoever wants them, just pay shipping.

ALL GONE THANKS

2x Fractal Design Dynamic X2 GP-12 120mm, 1200rpm 12v .18a, black, 3-pin (these came with my Meshify C)
2x Corsair AF120 quiet edition - ran for a few months, includes the white, blue and red color rings (to be clear this is two fans, not 2 packs of two fans)
2x Corsair AF120 quiet edition white LED - ran for a few months (to be clear this is two fans, not 2 packs of two fans)



I also have:

1x Xeon L5410
6x 2GB Registered ECC DDR2-800 (Virtium, DIMM part number vl393t5663e-e7s)

Still available. Someone take these. :p
 
Can anyone use any of this stuff? :p Take it all.

Edit:
Cards gone
DVI cables gone
Rounded yellow IDE cables and 1x each of the PS/2-to-USB adapters gone

Are those DFI LANparty IDE and Floppy cables?

You know what, they might be. I did own a DFI LANParty board at one point. I remember purchasing some rounded cables but I don't recall ever buying yellow ones separately like that, so they very well could be from that DFI mobo accessories package.
 
I have some computer cases that are free to go to a new owners. I know it's heavy to ship, and missing their original box, shipping cost + materials may be a little too much whether it's worth receiving it/them, but here they are:

1) Corsair 500R, still has most of accessories, there may be some little scratches, but nothing major. Just pay shipping (TBD)

2) Thermaltake Level 10 GT White Snow. The E-SATA port is broken, but otherwise, everything else still works. Just pay shipping (TBD)


3) Three Dell PC towers (the Optiplex line) with missing the CPUs. One is a socket 1155, two are 1150.

To be clear, I'm in the Twin Cities, MN area, so if anyone here lives close by, you are welcome to come and pick these up. Just need to hook me up for the address.
Interested in a dell
