Need help in Utah! Looking for LGA2011 MOBO to test 3960x on.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone! My friend has a 3960x cpu that we both want to test to see if the CPU works. He got it in a trade, and hasn't had a chance to test it yet. If it works, I want to buy it off of him, and use for my next build.

So my big question is this:

Would anyone happen to have a spare x79 LGA2011 board we could test this chip on? OR have a build we could drop it into? We'd be willing to come to you, and you'd be doing us the greatest service if we could! biggrin.gif

I'm located in Murray, UT 84107, and he is in South Jordan AND Sugarhouse depending on the time of the week, but i'd be willing to travel to test this thing out.
Thanks everyone, let us know! smile.gif - Jessekin32

Or if anyone has any other ideas as to what I can do, please let me know. I just want to find a way to test this thing before Friday.

Anyone have any suggestions on what I should do? Any advice would help...

I just saw this on the top page. Isn't that like 4 minutes from Salt Lake? Isn't there a friendly and helpful computer shop/Microcenter there where you can throw a guy ten bucks and a tube of MX4 to see if it boots?

Yeah, Murray is within the Salt Lake valley, and about a 10 minute drop from Salt Lake City smile.gif

Sadly, I don't know where I could go to get this done. There is a line of computer stores here called "PC-Laptops" that does everything computers, but they don't sell components. Just whole systems. I'm going to see if they can do something for me tomorrow, if not them , I don't know where to go D:

Anyone with any other ideas, or knowledge of where I can go locally?

Give it time. You have several days and I'm sure there are members in the area that will see this soon enough. OCN is usually sorta dead this time of day anyways.

So I called all the PC Laptops here, and they were no help :/ And I didn't think I'd get any bites late last night, but you never know who is a nightowl tongue.gif

Here's my bump and plea asking for assistance with my chip xD

Thanks guys, and let me know if you can help, or have recommendations. smile.gif

Another bump. I just picked up my i7-3960x today, and I REALLY want to test it to make sure it works xD

If you live close by, send me a PM, and i'll send you my Cell# to see if we can work anything out. I wouldn't mind tipping to test this thing. smile.gif

Yet another bump. I'd still love to test this chip if anyone can help me. I really don't want to pay Geekbox $37.50 just to see if it posts frown.gif
