Originally built in 2009, retired 2 years ago and has been gathering dust. Ready for Win 10, but upgrade has not been run.


Will deliver in the Christchurch area or you can pick up. With the huge V8 Cooler on the CPU, I’d be a bit reluctant to ship elsewhere in the country.


Price. Haven’t a clue. Offers around $500?




Case. Full tower. Cooler Master ATCS 840 E-ATX.  


Superbly quiet, all aluminium case, but it is TALL.


Spare bays: 5 internal, plus 4 front panel 5.25” bays. 


Front ports: 4 x USB 2, eSATA (3Gb/s), Firewire, sound.


Motherboard. Asus P6T LGA 1366.  - still in current line-up.


Processor CPU. Intel Core i7-920. 2.66 GHz.  Original i7 line-up, but still OK.


CPU Cooler. Cooler Master V8 Hugely better than the stock cooler.


RAM. 12GB—Kingston HyperX XMP KHX1600C9D3K3/12GX, 3x4GB, DDR3-1600, PC3-12800, CL9, DIMM. This was only 6 months old before PC replaced with new Xeon unit.


Video Card. MSI MSR4670 2D512 Radeon HD 4670, 512MB, DDR3, PCIe-16, DVI, CrossFire.  Only used for 6 months as specialist CAD software needed a card with NVidia firmware. The MSI card had rave reviews at the time.


Hard Drive. Seagate Barracuda ST3500418AS, 500GB, 7200rpm, SATA-2


Power Supply. Enermax Modu82+, 625W ATX PSU, Active PFC.


Card Reader. Lian Li CR-36B Card Reader, USB 2. Supports: CF, SM, SD, etc


Mounted in 3.5” front drive bay.


DVD. Asus DRW-22B1ST DVD Writer, DVD 12R/22W/8RW, CD 48R/48W/32RW, Internal, SATA


[Edit - added the following & took out all the double spaces.]


OS. Windows 7 Professional 64 bit Retail, with orig DVD. Hard drive wiped and OS reinstalled and updated. Windows 10 ready, but has NOT been updated.


Software. No other software installed.


Manuals. All original CDs and manuals will be supplied. NB most of the software on these CDs will now be superseded and you should download the latest from the websites.


Still have all the old boxes if you want them. Sigh!

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

I would have thought more in the $200+ region. I'm actually quite interested myself
