Hi All, 


I have a couple of projects I am working on an looking for some free or cheap PC parts. 


1. A socket 1155 CPU - does not need to be high spec. A Celeron or Pentium would be OK, maybe an i3


2. An old socket 478 system (Ram, Mobo and CPU).


Open to any ideas/offers

I've got a Pentium G2020T (I think) pulled from a HP Microserver -


Socket 1155 (well, FCLGA1155). If it suits you're welcome to it. I'm located in Wellington.

I'll have a hunt, I may not have thrown out all of these.

I'm a geek, a gamer, a dad and an IT Professional. I have a full rack home lab, size 15 feet, an epic beard and Asperger's. I'm a bit of a Cypherpunk, who believes information wants to be free and the Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.
