Yo Wev I just spoke to Jr in vent and he said that he has changed his mind and would prefer that you sent it to me instead.
I know that JR is a very generous person - but he ain't that generous.

Well, ya all missed out. I had the motherboard and cpu in the [FS] thread for a week - combo deal for $260 and the only responses I got was one guy who thought he could buy both for $170 and another one who said that he would just buy an i5 and socket 1155 motherboard for those prices......... hmm whatever
I don't think you have enough PCI-E slots on the motherboard. Best you get a new one... I'm very willing to take the old one off your hands as well.
This combo is a genuine 4.56Ghz for benching under water and runs 4.1Ghz 24/7. As solid a motherboard & cpu combination as I've ever had. Both components are still selling for over $250 a piece new for those so inclined to stick with slightly older generation chipset. Anyway, JR is happy with the purchase and I know the gear is going to someone who will get some use out of it and really appreciate his new rig.
The nice thing is he gets into this whole new setup for less than 1k when it's all said and done.
