Default Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

I was given a VP6, working. Even it's original Jackcon caps are good (appearance-wise). Of course I'll recap it. Picked up a Supermicro P6DGS for peanuts as well, I dont know if it works or not, its previous owner had no way of testing it...but it was cheap enough that it was worth the gamble.

Two Dell 2950's (6x3.5" option) and Two R710's (8x2" option). I think I'll turn them into drive cloners (do 6/8 in the time it takes to do 1).

Thumbs up Antec Performance One P180B case from Craigslist

Last week, I got an Antec Performance One P180B case off of my local Craigslist for $10. It came with a SATA DVD-RW drive and also four 120 mm fans (three of which are Antec with a speed selector) Ė a little dusty, but all spinning fine. Some pictures:

Looks pretty good to me. Maybe not perfect, but the owner noted all of this in the posting (i.e. the loose front door, which he fixed with glue, along with the scratches, stains, and dings on the side.) Speaking of which, what is it that people drink next to their PCs that always leaves these stains in the paint? Neither Ammonia-based, nor alcohol-based, nor dish detergent, nor Chlorine-based cleaners can get that stuff out. You can see the stains on the first picture I posted above. It doesnít really bother me too much, as I know the case is clean and disinfected already, but Iím just curious to know what it is.

Here are some shots of the inside:

And look what I found behind the HDD cage:

- A box of screws that supposedly came with the case. Iím glad the owner kept these and didnít loose them. The front door keys for the lock are also there - very thoughtful of Antec to include this in the case design!

And here you can see one more imperfection on the bottom:
https://www.badcaps.net/forum/attach...1&d=1539923662
- The case is missing a foot, which has been repaired by the owner. It maybe a little modÖ but again kudos to the owner for actually caring to do this. Most cases Iíve found on my local Craiglist here have been much worse and much dirtier. Missing feet? Ė Almost the norm.

On that note, the case was also cleaned up pretty well by the original owner prior to selling it to me. Of course I still pulled it apart and inspected + cleaned/disinfected it further (itís just an OCD of mine.) Nevertheless, I canít remember the last time I picked up a PC case from Craigslist that was this clean. Most stuff I get here is at least very dusty and goes all the way up to having dead roach and bedbug bodies (at which point, I usually just throw it away or refuse the deal). But not this case (punÖ weeee! )

Moreover, whatís weird is that I bought this from the more ďpoorĒ side of my neighborhood. I frankly expected to get a case full of roaches when I saw the condo complex (and hence why I cleaned + inspected the case again). But no! It was clean. Meanwhile, Iíve had pretty poor luck picking up good stuff from in front of big McMansion houses in the richer parts of my neighborhood.

So perhaps the theory I came up with in the Panasonic Thrusters thread is true:

Not the first time either that I seem to pickup something very crappy from an otherwise good-looking house.
Anyways, for $10, I think I scored well here. Now to think about which build I should put in it. With all those fans, it sure can take some hot hardware. I guess Iíll have to dig out my Pentium D 830 CPU. Itís been getting cold lately and I could use a room heater.

If I remember correctly you got that from me in one of my big box sales at a very good price.

Got a load of dell hardware a few weeks ago including

Dell usb 3.0 4K docks x 3 for a fiver each
A load of new 65w and 120w laptop power supplies £1 each
A few other bits and pieces

Non pc stuff got a Bose wave radio/cd. Absolute filthy but worked a treat once cleaned up. £10
Bose personal portable CD player, absolute bargain for a £1. Was buried amongs loads of kids toys. Looked like it had never been used still had the cardboard piece inside that you remove before first use. Unfortunately numnuts over here killed it as was dirty from the outside so tried cleaning. Managed to tear ribbon cable when dismantling (wanted to clean around button) luckily I managed to bridge with a thin cable but had to sell for a 3rd of what it was worth if I didn’t damage the ribbon.

Anyhow off tomorrow and sunday to some Carboot will update with haul hopefully.

No, I got that case from a local shop that was going belly up.

This is the one I got from you, Antec DF30 gaming case, which is still in use BTW:
