You have a welder? Would be easy enough to close up those holes and grind smooth. Would be interested in seeing it properly fixed. Those Tt fans look so tacky lol

I didn't opp for the fans, so we won't be seeing them. I may have to opp for some black smooth buttons to put over those holes for now. Welding that up and having the panel refinished would be a little expensive.

He only had about 20 bucks listed for shipping and didn't ask for any more. He shipped it a day or two ago. It's on it's way from California. We will just have to see what else may of been butchered on it when it gets here.

He is a seller with 700 positive feed back, we will just have to see. If It is a empty box I have over 1300 positive so we will just have to duke it out on ebay.

You will probably get it. If he wasn't going to send it he would have shown one in pristine condition probably.

I have couple of toughbooks that can smoke that one down specs wise. I am selling my getac right now because parts are hard to find for it. Also parts for that unit are hard as hell to find as well.

Anyone here snag it? If it wasn't for missing two pay periods before being picked back up I would of bid on it.

RAGEs? 1. Memories? 3-1/2, to be precise.

Was it the first or last half of the memory that you lost?

This just popped up. Missing side pannels, but I think it would be worth it for parts. Still deciding if I should bid or not.

It doesn't look too bad for what I paid for it. It doesn't have the voodoo emblem in the lid, the filter behind the voodoo emblem on the front is still there, the hard drive tray is still there. The back panel is missing.

Still had a service sticker on the inside.

I dropped an xeon x5660 hex core into the omen. Same x58 board I had been using. Despite it being clocked at only 2.8 it provides a lot better performance then my i7 960 quad core 3.2. Also being ex dce the market is flooded with them. They are now they are hitting eol. The servers they were in are now off support contracts. The xeons also have a lower tdp then the x58 i7s. An all around win. You may want to look into them if you are still using any x58 platforms.

The memory controller on the x58 platform is built into the cpu. Not the northbridge. With the xeon maximum ram is the 128gb from what i recall vs 24gb with i7. You can also run ecc ram or non ecc ram with the xeon. Still using the 24gb kit i was using with the i7 without issue.

currently exploring saturating the bus of an lsi megaraid sas with ssds. I have an ibm branded variant of the 9260-8i. I need to figure  how to keep it cooled in a workstation. Its designed for a high airflow server chassis. Then I can go about flashing the retail sbr and bios for boot time improvement. (Ibm m5015 bios is known to take forever)
