The [H]ardForum Perpetual Freebies Thread

I need one of two solutions to repair a friend's PC...

--any old motherboard with SATA.
or
--PCI SATA card

I also have tons of FREE old stuff available in my FS/FT thread.
 
Have:
DVI Cable 6FT New from a Dell Monitor
Apple Firewire Cable 4P-6P
Apple iMac Power Cord (See through you can see the 3 wires inside of the cord made for the iMac G3 bit will work with any item with the standard IEC Power Input)
2 X Floppy disk drives + Several disks (All are not guaranteed to work)
IDE/SATA to usb 2.0 Adapter Only the Adapter no power supply as I am keeping that for myself (Sorry!)

Wanted:
VGA Splitter (Male 15pin DSUB to 2 x Female 15 Pin DSUB)
VGA Cable 6FT or more (Found!)
Small IDE HDD 4+GB or more but not more then 120GB (this is for an old machine and the maxium is 137GB Due to the LBA Restriction (I think) (Found!)
DVD-Rom/CD-RW All in one drive preferred
2.5" PATA/IDE hard drive <20GB 5400RPM is preferred but any will do Thanks
 
I could use a set of 3.5inch mounting rails if anyone has some handy. I swear I've probably pitched 30 of those things over the years. :p
 
Just looking for an IDE ribbon cabel to go from my motherboard to two IDE drives... LMK!

have a fan or two (bit noisy but they work!)

Interesting... since I'm pretty sure I have the heat sink with no fan!! :p
Can't count the number of times I told myself to just throw it out.
Now I can't remember if I ever did or not.

Lemme check tonight, and I'll PM if it's still there.
 
recieved lots of replies on FS/T. thanks everyone! ended up getting a Northbidge heatsink, P4 heatsink+ fan, and a 2.0Ghz cpu FOR $3+SHIPPING ended sending $12.
 
Hi,

I am looking for 7 to 10 DVI to VGA adapters.

I am part of a student organization at our university which refurbishes PCs that are then donated to non-profit organizations in the Philadelphia Area. We recently got a lot of decommissioned DVI-only workstations, but most of the monitors that we have are VGA. I didn't have enough at home for all the systems

I'd prefer to get a lot of them from one or two people. I will gladly pay all shipping-related costs, but let me know if you have an alternate asking price.

Thanks!
 
must take 775 single core. cpu and be from Canada trying to get one for poor family going again.

I have ONE.

Sorry that it's not more so it can be a bulk deal, but I doubt shipping would be more than $3 via first class. (Cardboarded up in an envelope) If you still need at least one more, let me know. It's your standard DB15 VGA Female to DVI-I Male adapter with 4 pins around the keypin.

Thanks for the offer, but as you stated, I'm really looking for lots of 4-5, if not a whole lot of 10. I am willing to pay more than shipping if necessary. It'll save everyone time and effort, since I don't want to bother someone to ship out one thing.

Keep in mind a set of 10, brand new, is $23 shipped to your location (from your heatware) from monoprice.com. ;)

I may have a few, but I most likely gave them all away already. I'll double check and PM you if I find around 4 or more.

Thanks, that's exactly what I was thinking (I was checking monoprice/Ebay for lots). It's not a huge priority at the moment, and will most likely post a WTB thread later for this and other items we need to get these systems out the door.
 
Hi,

Thanks,
Jinx

Hello,

What I'm looking for
- s775 or s939 board that supports DDR2 (integrated graphics would be great)
- s775 or s939 cpu
- Any ddr2 ram
- IDE hdd (something like 40Gb would be good)
- Low end power supply (something around 280W would be enough)
- Might also be looking for 2x KTT8000/256 laptop ram

I'm not in any urge, this is simply for a low end server that I could use.

What I have
- ATI Rage IIC 4Mb agp video card
- Crystal CX4235-XQ3 sound card
- 128Mb PC100 sdram
- LNE100TX Linksys ethernet pci card
- DFE-530TX D-link ethernet pci card
- DFE-690TXD D-link laptop ethernet card
- Dual phone lines pci card
- A bunch of sata cables
- Motorola CyberSURFR Wave cable modem
- Webstar DPX100 cable modem
- Usb Logitech quickcam messenger (Webcam)

FYI I'm located in Canada (shouldn't really change the shipping price for such small items but just wanted to mention it).

Please keep in mind that some of stuff is old and that I cannot test it.

Thank you :)

Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for a heat sink that fits a socket A (462) motherboard and supports up to a Athlon XP 3200+ processor. It can be one of the heatsinks that requires mounting holes.

What I have for free:
Pentium III 500MHz Slot A processor pulled from a Dell
56K Modems, both ISA and PCI
simple PCI sound card
 
Might be a long shot, but does anyone have a Phenom 1 HSF? You know, the one with four heat pipes?

Thanks.
 
Well, I gave a desktop PCI b/g WiFi adapter away in this thread a few months ago...and now it turns out I am in actually in desperate need of one. Odd how things work, huh? :p Anyone?
 
Anyone have a spare LGA 775 CPU Heatsink Fan (I need it to support an 84WTDP P4 2.8GHZ) any kind is fine as long as it supports the Prescott core 84WTDP my cheap OEM cooler is not cutting it and the comp shuts down in 10 seconds because of CPU Overheat

Thanks
