I'd be interested if the price was cheap enough... I bought one recently but it died shortly after I got it
Just need a cheap 3 slot board for a gpu folder...

But if you sell them together, you will never get more than 200. I highly recommend selling them separately. I sold 2 Q9550's E0 and C0 and thats how much I got for them.

Everyone know is buying combos for 1155 as they are around 350 or so new. That's why it's best to sell in pieces as there are some people out there still with some sort of 775 set up who would love to upgrade!

Good luck.
I think when I was buying it was C1 vs E0. Mine is an E0, which was supposed to be the better OCer.

I guess that would depend on the price you're thinking...

Im another one that really liked my 780I A1, Never a problem, Clocked good enough for my Q6600 to 3.6 Stable at 1.30 V

I was able to get 4.1 on my P45 though :)

I might be interested in a few things too, If its priced right.

Honestly, the only bad thing I can say from my experience in the board was the vdroop, and even that wasn't a big deal once I got used to it and compensated appropriately while OC'ing. Other than that, she's been rock solid.

So I read, but it never really bothered me, once I was used to it. Maybe if I'd been shooting for a crazy OC, but I was never all that bothered about it.
