it seems to be cheaper to buy these one than buy server board+case+ipmi+power supply

This year, with 4 separate Ebay transactions , I purchased 4 x Intel lga1356 node boards with Mellanox VPI network at $100 each.
I been waiting for a cheap Intel chassis to complete the project. The cheapest Intel chassis that I found is $650 + shipping.

I am tempted to make a offer at $900.

but the problem is that there aren't many LGA1356 processors available on ebay...

There were a few sellers earlier this week who gave me counter offers at 90$ for a couple of 2418L chips. So they are there just depends on what you want to spend. They might even go lower if you were buying enough to fill one of these

LGA1356 cpu pop up on Ebay with ridiculous low price, for comparison, pickup a bunch E5-1428L at $60 each, cheaper than I3 processor. Most sellers just want to unload it, now the cat is out, price will rise. o_O

Ya really. I noticed that the seller that we all did offers on the other day has posted another batch of 2418L at a fixed 90$ price, no offers allowed. Guess he figured he had a hot seller once we bought up the first batch so quick

Ebay seller EES_Components sent me a written note, that he/she have 3 x SR0LM E5-2430 $350, I couldn't make out his hand writing, not sure is $350 for all 3 or $350 each. If anyone interest, I could pm his/her email.

Some one was looking for an intel case for these boards, oem-xs where the boards are for sale has intel cases at 300, so he seems to accept down to half price?

I would strongly consider buying a case + motherboard together. Intel platforms are very proprietary.

I am busy shopping on Ebay this weekend, and will make an offer to the entire chassis and board next weekend.
