Very strange request this one .. I am working with a team who are looking at the effect of mining on electronic components at a microscopic level and we are looking for some AMD and nVidia GPU to test plus MB and CPU parts. 


We had a look at trademe and there are plenty but we need to understand, how long the equipment was mined, the environment, rates and a few other details as part of the analysis and so far no one there is being as upfront as we would like.


Basically need a few RX470/570/580 class devices, some GTX1060/1070 and motherboards.


Preferably only mined from new and not gamed on before or since. 


Even dead equipment may have some analytical use


PM if you have anything you don't need and I will see if we can use it ... as this is grant money there is not a lot of it left after Beer and Food 😜
