AMD-1U Socket AM3 rackmount system >Barracuda Balancer 340< Originally $1800 PRICE DROP

Will Ship To: US50

Hey guys!

I've got an interesting little piece here. It's a Barracuda Balancer 340. It's an $1800 piece of very specific network hardware that I've got laying around. Keep in mind, if you would like to re-use it as it was originally intended, you would have to purchase a license update (~$300 per year) and re-install their OS.....or you could be like me and install whatever the hell you want on it!

Manufacturer Specifications

I've been using it for the a few months as a media server (using an eSata PCI-E card w/ 90 degree riser and port multiplier) using an external tower full of HDDs.

Once you open it up, it has an MSI GF615M-P33 motherboard, a Sempron 140 CPU, 1 x 2GB Samsung DDR3 a 4GB PATA(IDE) Flash module (I didn't know they had these!) and the PCI-E load balancing card. While there's no specific mounting spot for any storage drives inside, I've had two 2.5" SSD drives in this chassis before velcroed down and it worked great.

This thing is in GREAT shape. the ONLY thing wrong with it is a very small tab on the plastic piece that holds the expansion slot cover on the chassis broke, so if the chassis gets jiggled around a lot, the expansion slot cover can become loose and fall off. Very minor issue that will NOT come up with regular use. It's almost not even worth mentioning, but I like to be thorough.

EXTRAS:
If you'd like, I'll install a Phenom 8450 Triple Core CPU for free!
It'll come spiffy and clean with Arctic Ceramique on the CPU.
I'll throw in some SATA cables for free upon request.

I'm looking to get $225 $200 $175 $150 $125 and I'll have it very well packaged and shipped via FedEx but feel free to make me an offer!
or I'd be willing to trade for a REALLY nice Radiator w/ really nice fans + cash depending
