Damn nice finds, still hunting for a 2500-2700 1155 right now for my son,

Also photobucket has gone to money grubbing hell so I recommend switching to imgur for your images :)

keep us posted

Will do. I didnít realise photobucket was useless now...I will switch when I get a chance. If only you werenít on the other side of the world it would be worth it to grab one of these PCs just the the 2600. Some of the ones with scrapped up cases have gone for $50.

Everything Hardware / Upgrading old faithful and another random PC

Hey everyone.

I just bought 2 more random HP SFF PCs (I bought one last year that I am using as a TV box with an i5 2400 and 4gb ram). The local auction site here has been clearing out mass quantities of them from a hospital that closed. Never hard drives in them.

One is an i7 2600 with 8gb ram that I got for $70+15%auction fee ($80.50total). I recently grabbed a 120gb WD green SSD for $59 all in during black friday sales that will be going in this PC. Between this PC and my current TV box (mentioned above), I will keep one and give one to my grandparents when I get back to Canada.

The other is an i7 3770 and 8gb ram purchased for $90 ($103.50 after auction fee). This one I am robbing of parts. The 3770 is going in my main desktop to replace my 3570k (ivy bridge non-k can be overclocked by 4 multipliers, so it isn't going to affect freq from how I am running the 3570k). And the 2x4gb ram was just put in my desktop to bring me up to 16gb total.

One frustration I am having is that ram timings aren't playing the game. Even if I set timings in the bios it isn't forcing them...non JEDEC and not what I set. No idea what is happening. Anyone had this issue before. Either way I will keep the ram installed, since it is still running near what I want and it is doubling the capacity.

Now I just need to buy some thermal paste soon to get the CPU swapped.

Good times.



Ram that was pulled



Edit:
Forgot to put a pic of the 3770 awaiting transplant.

Used the gigabyte method someone mentioned in your post and damn son why you put in so much work when that method was instant and easy :D it preinstalled the usb drivers before the install screen so it went damn smoothly. was shocked how well it went, to be honest.

Todays rant: Banks and people who work at them that say the line "They should not need this" or "I know they said it is required but really it is not" you're all garbage people and I hope you get aids... that is all ps not just aids SUPER aids that kind drugs do nothing to help :P

Finally done all the paperwork for my house and found out the bank did not stamp something I told them was required but the lady said it was not at the bank (how lazy can someone be where they refuse to stamp something) and that made it so I could not use my main account for my mortgage so every 2 weeks I need to move money around... so dumb

It's a good skill to have for benching. My Win7 now installs on current AMD and Intel with USB/ Xhci and NVMe support.
