I think it's time to declare bankruptcy on some unfinished projects. I have photos of most items, which I'll attempt to upload, so let me know if you're interested so I can prioritise.
Unsure on pricing, so open to offers on everything.
Collection from St. Albans. Might be able to...
Supermicro MBD-X11SSV-M4F Mini-ITX Motherboard Intel Xeon E3-1585 V5 NEW RETAIL | eBay
I've wanted one of these boards since they came out, but they never seem to drop much below £1000, so this is an absolute steal IMO.
Managed to snag a used R7910 barebones for a decent price; have a few questions:
- What are the differences between R7910 and R730? As far as I can tell, chassis, motherboard etc. are identical -- just BIOS? Quieter fans?
- Does the R7910 support PCIe slot bifurcation? It's mentioned in the...
Looks like Supermicro has a new NVMe HBA out.

Explicitly states a PLX chip this time (unlike the 4E4T). PCIe X8 into 4x Oculink, so potentially bandwidth-limited. Still, though, might be worth a shot; Seems to...
I'm after a couple of socket covers/protectors for LGA2011-3 (I believe these are bigger than ones for LGA2011) -- have a project which will need some work before I can put CPUs in it, but want to make sure the pins are protected.
Willing to pay a nominal fee + postage.
Looks like you can now buy SFF-8643 to SFF-8639 cables direct from Intel: SFF PCle SSD Cable - SSD Spare Parts
These are likely genuine Amphenol items.
Having previously previously paid upwards of £30 per cable, I'd say this was a good deal. Shame it's not available in the UK.
Looking to upgrade my main rig. Picked up a Ryzen 7 1700 and 2x16GB DDR4 UDIMMs during the Black Friday sales, and an ASRock AB350M-Pro4 motherboard. However, I'm now planning to return the Ryzen and Pro4; I'd like to use all the PCIe slots, but if using a U.2 adapter in the M.2 slot...
Everything in excellent/as-new condition.

Crucial MX300 1TB M.2 (SATA) -- £200 inc European shipping

Looking for a (preferably) 3G SAS controller (been having trouble with 6G ones on my expanders, so want to rule that out).
24 or 16 (internal) port would be ideal, but let me know what you have; 12 or even multiple 8s would work.
I'm interested in getting an Avoton board for general NAS duties. Was just wondering what the status of these boards is, now the CPU defect has been out in the open for a few months.
If I buy a new board, can I expect that it'll have been 'fixed' (either by the board-level mod or new stepping)...
I'm looking for 6x VLP RDIMMs or EUDIMMs, 8 or 16GB. PC3-12800 or quicker, ideally.
I can swap or PX for standard-height DIMMs if needed -- have a mixture of 4, 8 and 16GB sticks available in DDR2 and DDR3.
Also looking for a Dell PERC H200 adapter with full-height bracket.
Looking for one of these cables, as provided with eg. Intel NVMe SSDs. Full name is SFF-8643 to SFF-8639 cable.
Bought one from Amazon, assuming that Amphenol are the only people that make these, and ended up with an inferior cable. So looking for the genuine Amphenol-branded item now.
