What to do with old server mb/cpu?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a old dual socket intel server motherboard with 2 single core xeons at 3.2(think). Just been sitting in my basement for 2+ years. What could/should I do with it?

What type of Xeon...probably better off recycling it. The power consumption will be high and not to mention loud.

Don't know for sure. Got it almost 3 years ago. When I got it, wouldn't fire up. Whoever put in one of the cpus bent about 20 pins. I straightened them and borrowed some ram and got it to fire up. The board can take quad cpus but they are still $400+ everywhere. On a side note they have huge, heavy solid heatsinks. Either copper or brass.

Few suggestions in here... http://www.overclock.net/servers/112...e-servers.html

Other than that; we're in the same boat.
