This listing is for a brand new build. It has not been used or turned on other than for stability testing on the overclock of the CPU. It Prime95 and IBT stable @ 4.9 GHz at only 1.38 Core Voltage. In addition to the parts listed below, a good $200.00 of extras have been put into this. These extras include 4 Scythe 1850RPM GTs in push-pull on the H100, and a lot of BitFenix Alchemy single-sleeve cables that match the motherboard, right down to tie mounts to keep the wires organized behind the mobo tray. No bird's nest in this machine.

CPU: Intel Core i7-2600K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($279.99 @ Microcenter)
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100 92.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($109.99 @ CompUSA)
Motherboard: ASRock Z68 Extreme7 Gen3 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($249.99 @ Newegg)

Hard Drive: Crucial M4 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($187.00 @ B&H)

Power Supply: OCZ 1000W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($159.99 @ Microcenter)
Optical Drive: Asus BW-12B1ST/BLK/G/AS Blu-Ray/DVD/CD Writer ($74.98 @ Newegg)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (64-bit) ($99.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $2783.16


As you can see, the main parts only, excluding all the customized extras, comes to just over $2750. I am hoping to get an offer at least close to that. Once again, this build is brand new, sitting in a plastic bag ever since it was overclocked. This is NOT USED. Any additional information/pictures available upon request.

Look what this guy pmed me he wants to build and sell computers for more than it costed him on these forums You are overlooking the fact that these are not secondhand parts. I put together this rig to sell. It was only even turned on for the purpose of overclocking it. Also...your fudge factor of "400-500 less when they are in need of money really fast" is sort of relative to say the least.

First of all, I don't see anywhere that it says "No selling of new items." That should not have been a surprise if you had actually read my initial post saying it was new.

Second of all, you wanted $1300 for a brand new computer that was built for more than double that amount of money. Sorry I didn't jump on that offer.

{EDIT}: For clarity, He initially PM'ed me with an asking price. I asked for what you might expect: The cost of the parts, plus about $150 considering the fact that it's built, and has a VERY nice overclocking chip.

To which he responded "ahahahahahaha these go for about $1300 my friend"

I then proceeded to tell him that his offer was absurd.

then he said: "some people price at 400-500 less when they are in need of money really fast not saying its what they go for 100% but if your patience enough you can find super deals on the forums prices are based on overclock.net"

Bravo on the build, but why 580's when the 7970's and 7950's are out?

To be perfectly honest, I started gathering the parts before they came out. I don't think that detracts from the fact that it can still play about any game at about any setting currently.


On that note, I might be willing to consider selling this rig without the graphics cards so the buyer could add whichever ones he/she would like once he/she gets it.

i offered him $1800 look what he said no thanks. Perhaps I'd sell the computer without the 580's for 2050. he should ebay it idiots with no computer knowlege whatsoever will buy it for that price or even more this is a forum filled with enthusiasts you expect us to buy this ???? also even though there is not a rule about it don't try to sell stuff at retail price or more its not gonna work on forums

Look... First you tell me that it is not allowed to sell a new computer (BTW, I still don't see anywhere that it is not allowed to do that). then you offer me a lowball anyway. THEN after THAT you have the nerve to complain about the fact that I didn't take your lowball offer.

You made an offer, I declined. No need to come and whine about it in my thread.

regardless, those are stil used parts. youll never get what you paid, let alone a building fee. youre trying to sell to people that know computers, but youre trying to do it like a botique shop.
February 8, 2012 1:10:02 AM

No need to get off-topic and thread-crap here. If you didn't get it for the price your were looking for, oh well. You seem to be selling off your parts anyway.

@ OP -
You'll have a difficult time selling higher-quality parts for near brand new prices here. eBay is truly your best bet.

I know the entire value of the computer based on OCN prices since that's where all of my trading is done. I don't see a sale price listed on the original post, so that may also help with your sale. If you need help getting an appraisal, let me know.

thanks. :-)

But, in light of the fact that I have not gotten any offers that I am willing to accept, I think what I am going to end up doing is just keeping this build for myself, and sell the rig I use currently, which will probably be easier to get a reasonable offer for.

I will keep this post up, just in case there is someone willing to give me what it is worth.
