I'm in the process of upgrading my current PC to a Ryzen 5 based machine (also getting new motherboard) so I have some parts to sell.


I have a Ryzen 3 1200 CPU and a MSI B350m Mortar MicroATX motherboard for sale.


Does have the stock cooler, but I don't have the original mounting hardware (the ones that look like AM3 mounting hardware that you remove to install the stock cooler.)


I don't have the original box on hand, so gonna have to make this a pick up only sort of deal.


I'm wanting around $275 for it, but price is negotiable within reason. Pickup is in Hamilton East, near the uni campus but if you're in the Hillcrest area I can probably drop off, will discuss with buyer.


CPU has been overclocked previously but it's always been moderate, like around 400mhz OC, never been messed with in regard to delidding or anything like that.


Motherboard is on almost latest BIOS revision, meant to do the updates but haven't got around to it yet, will be done before handing over to buyer. Does include IO Shield and stuff.




The parts have been well looked after, since they've been in my first ever all brand new parts build and I didn't want them to break or wear out. I do have the motherboard manual on me, as well as receipts for the CPU and Motherboard from PB Tech and Computer Lounge respectively.










EDIT: I do actually have the box, just it's in storage at my parents 6 hours south of me, so I'd need to get them to post the boxes up to me which is a bit of an inconvenience but if you need for example the AM3 cooler mounting things for the motherboard I can sort that out if buyer lets me know

May have been a bit greedy with my asking price given this is used Ryzen Gen 1 stuff, so let's lower it a bit to $240, I am still open to negotiation on the price of course.

EDIT: I should also make it clear that the stock cooler IS currently mounted on the board properly, I have removed the AM3 compatible mounting hardware that is necessary for some aftermarket coolers like the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240R (the cooler I have bought and realised I don't have the correct bits to mount it on my motherboard).

I'll chuck pictures up tomorrow

Still available, I'm happy to go down to $190 since it is collecting dust on my shelf at the moment
