Free to a Good Home:
Dead Z97-WS - Giving away for free + shipping

Will Ship To: US48, US50

All gone in less than a day!

Hi folks! I am giving away these three motherboards [update: only one left] for free, plus the actual shipping costs which depend on where the shipment goes. If you want to pick those up locally (Orange County area, CA), I'll give them to you at no cost at all, just like that!

All motherboards come in boxes, with IO plate included, and with no other accessories.

Please check the details below.



#1: This one is actually a motherboard + CPU + RAM combo. I'd prefer to keep this all together since I really have no use for those pieces individually. This can be a great start for your budget build, decent performer for basic tasks.

- Motherboard: ASUS M4N68T-M V2, micro-ATX, Socket AM3.
- CPU: AMD Athlon II B24, dual-core, 3 GHz.
- RAM: ADATA DDR3-1333, 2 modules * 4 GB each.

Note: Comes without stock cooler mounting bracket, as shown in the picture. You can use aftermarket cooler which does not need the stock bracket, or you can get one for few dollars. I used it for the last time few months ago, and it worked with no issues at all.





#2: ASUS H87M-E, micro-ATX, Socket 1150.

Note: I used it last time quite some time ago, over a year, and I never had Haswell CPU to use it with since then. It probably is working but not 100% guaranteed. Socket is fine and clean, no bent pins.




#3: ASUS Z97-WS, full-ATX, Socket 1150.

Note: This motherboard is dead. It is 100% not working. Guaranteed. Good for spare parts, display purposes, using as a template for building your custom case around it, or whatever your creativity tells you. One beast of a motherboard (while it lasted) and still looks imposing.

What went wrong with the Z97? I'm not really interested in taking it, just curious as to why it failed. Maybe it's fixable.

It was working with no issues for few months. Then I did major system overhaul and swapped few components around. Put everything back together, turned on, everything works fine. Then, 20 minutes later, for no apparent reason, the system turns off and never powers on ever since. Fans not spinning, no response to power button, etc. Some error LEDs were on and error code was displayed. I checked those and it did not really give me any clue as to what's wrong. By swapping everything else I eventually narrowed it down to the motherboard. Replaced it, and the system works again. So, not really sure what happened. I have possibly caused that with something I did, or else it would be too much of a coincidence how it died soon after my manipulations. But then again I can't put a finger at anything I did, and it did work for 20 minutes. By the way, the replacement board worked for 2 years since then and is still going strong, paired with 4790K.
