Gauging interest here, I'm in NYC and I have a free 2U Rackmount case for local pickup available if anyone is interested in the area. It looks like the picture below. Has a couple dings and scratches and the top panel has seen better days near the screw holes but has the case fans intact, sorry I don't have the key for this but the front panel is already unlocked. Compatible with ATX motherboards. I will have another one next week that is a 4U Rosewill Rackmount case next week for free as well.

If no interest, they will just end up in the trash after 3 weeks.



The 4U Rosewill rackmount case I will be putting on the freebie list for pickup next week after I sort out all the internals. This rackmount case looks pristine, no dings and dents that I can see. I have the keys for the front panel lock for this one.
That rosewill works pretty decently for a GPU mining rig in case anyone wants to stock up on stuff while things are cheap. Won't fit some of the massive newer cards, but things like the 3xxx series FE cards fit great.

If you don't get any bites here, I'd post them up on reddit homelabsales and hardwareswap and they'll be gone in a day--those are excellent home labbing cases. :)

I'm on the wrong coast, but if you can find not obscene shipping, I'd be interested. But who wants to deal with shipping on a computer case?

I'm interested. Where in NYC are you? I'm just on the other side of the Hudson River.

This is a stretch. Does anyone have the following Cooler Master 115x bracket from a Nepton series AIO? I only need the 115x brackets that attach to the pump itself as I have a backplate and standoffs that will work. This unit has been gathering dust because it only has the AM3 mounting bracket on it and the RL-AM4B-NEPS-R1 AM4 kit Cooler Master made is now impossible to find.

If all you need are the metal bars, just go out and buy some aluminum flatbar and fold it into the shape you need. The X clamp, screws and mounting studs are all over Ebay. It can be done with a bench vise, hammer, drill and a tap.

If it has an internal LiPO battery, the battery probably went flat. Try leaving it plugged in for a few hours, sometimes the charging circuitry is smart enough to trickle charge the battery until it reaches its working voltage, and it will charge normally after that. Once the battery is charged enough, the device should turn on.

If it doesn't turn on after a few hours of charging, invasive surgery is required to either revive the battery manually, or replace it.

I remember wanting one of those so bad from the fire sale, my walmart only got 1 in :p
Walmart associate stole my online order for two. I spent an hour driving there to be told "it says here your order is ready for pick up but we can't find it." Manager offered a $40 gift card by mail, it never did come. I did eventually get ahold of two, they were solid.

Have a Lenovo 100S-14IBR laptop. - Gone.

I could use some DDR3 if anyone has some to spare. I'd offer older memory in exchange, but I doubt anyone needs DDR2/DDR/SDR/SIMMs.

Needed: Any size or condition working NVME for testing. I have a 2nd NVME bought on the H and forgot to test it for a few months and now I can't see it at all. My fault for not testing it. I want to rule out a bad MB. If you have something way past it's sell by date, but still works, any size, it would be a great help.

Walmart sells cheap NVME SSDs in-store in the electronics section. If you don't want it, you can always return it.

Have a Lenovo 100S-14IBR laptop. Don't remember where it came from. It works, but needs a charger and the battery doesn't hold a charge for a long time. It is VERY slow. Maybe useful if you need something small and light for basic office/light internet browsing.

Screen is bright and has no obvious issues. Keyboard and trackpad work. Overall case has moderately worn paint.

Specs:
CPU: Celeron N3050
RAM: 2 GB
SSD: 64 GB
OS: Fedora 36, but has SLIC for Windows 8 and by extension 10.

CPU and RAM are non-upgradeable unless you have a BGA rework station and the weird expensive DDR3L chips it uses. There is a M.2 slot for storage expansion. For the charger, the 65W generic Walmart charger with changeable tips has a tip that will work with this machine. It can be yours for shipping. It goes off to recycling if nobody wants it.

I could use some DDR3 if anyone has some to spare. I'd offer older memory in exchange, but I doubt anyone needs DDR2/DDR/SDR/SIMMs.

if nobody has snagged this up yet i could definitely put it to good use. Either way, i do have some DDR3 ram here if you still need some.

I have an old shuttle all in one touchscreen with atom cpu. I got it in a lot of electronics. No hdd, it powers on and shows text but gets some red lines across after a few seconds. Includes a 19v ac adapter for it. Think it has 2gb ram. Probably not a flat rate item so if you are interested pm your zip code and I'll see what pirate ship says.

a 6100 should be fine for them. 8000s are still pricey for some reason. dat722 will be being real nice if hes got one to give!

Someone claimed it, just forgot to remove it from my post.

I do still need some DDR3 though if you have any to spare.
