Xeon Hacking and Overclocking X79/X99 [Beyond X58] - Page 54

Alright. People are usually pretty honest around there and can prove that their products are working properly so it should be fine anyway. Thanks for all the info! :]

It's a bit eerie knowing that is actually a "good" deal considering what most people are asking for X79 these days... and to think I bought my X79 Deluxe BNIB for $150 about a year or so ago lol.

Yep.. I picked up two Deluxes for $150 each earlier this year. They were used but they might as well have been new, very little wear, sealed accessories, protective plastic on NB, etc. Seems like prices are still ridiculous for the most part though.

If you're new to eBay auctions let me warn you about the "snipers", maybe its just me but I started doing it after I noticed others doing it. Never put in your real max bid until the auction is like 10 seconds from being over so other bidders have no time to react. There are even tools and apps that will do it for you at the last second. Its kind of annoying but seems like everyone does it now. Bottom line dont get excited that you have the best bid and it seems like a great deal...someone will snipe it at the last second if its too good of a deal.

Don't spread my secret lol. As soon as I got high speed internet back in the early 2000's ebay was mine for the picking with that method. I will keep my other bidding a secret though.

Another tip is, if the buy it now price is fair or decent always do it. 95% of the time auctioning will always run the price higher than the original buy it now.

Example

I sold 2 FX6300s a few years back. Both had a buy it now price off 70 shipped and a starting bid of 45. The first one sold for the Buy it now price the first day. The other sold for 87 after the auction.

You need less than 10s for that stuff.

I noticed this with the 1660 auction. It was on €7 for over a week, then on the last day it went to €20, then €50, €70, €97 and in the last 2 seconds it jumped up to €136.

I'm afraid your secret is out there, I figured all of this stuff out in about 10 minutes by Googling it up ;]

I also thought of something myself, maybe it's what you're keeping to yourself~

Still, thanks for the help guys. It's nice to see people trying to help out others


I was wondering about this as well, although not particularly for this set but I believe I've read about some people having trouble running non-ecc memory on Xeons

I am running non ecc ripjaw. And ran also at 1800-2000mhz speed. I was asking about the rated speed. Can I run @2400?

...

FYI: I was bidding on that auction.

2 month ago or so i started looking for "cheap" X79 boards and decided not to purchase a CPU until i have a board.
During that time all the E5-1660s on auction were selling for less that 100€ and there were plenty out there.
Once i got my X79-UD3 (got that in almost new condition with a really decent cooler for 60€ total) all the reasonable priced auctions were suddenly gone.

Which is why i deciced to type in 135€ last second to make sure i get that chip. 40€ extra over the last one that sold would be enough i thought...

seems like i was wrong. Someone wanted it even more than i did and really overpaid thanks to me.

Allthough i am pretty sure prices will come down again soon.
