For Sale – Super server bundle: 14 core E5-2695 v3, ASRock Extreme 6 X99 mobo, 80GB DDR4 ECC RAM

I have a super powerful CPU, mobo and RAM bundle here that would make a great home server, I have used it as an unRAID server for about 18 months or so but am downsizing.

I have used this rig for running unRAID with dockers and VMs. When running VMs you can do GPU pass-through and I’ve had really powerful multi-core Mac Pro desktop running as well as a gaming VM with a GTX 1060 passed through. It’s an absolute beast. Great for running multiple VMs as a home lab.

ASRock X99 Extreme 6 ATX motherboard
Intel Xeon E5-2695 14 core/28 thread CPU
80GB !! (5 x 16GB, 4 Crucial and 1 SKHynix) of ECC DDR4 2133 memory

Motherboard specs:-
On-board dual LAN
Supports up to 128GB RAM
Ultra M.2 slot
8 RAM Slots

Intel Xeon E5-2695 v3 14 core/28 thread CPU. This is a late stepping engineering sample indistinguishable from retail. The v3 Xeons had a “bug” from Intel where using patched Microcode you can bypass the usual turbo boost restrictions to have all the cores running at single core boost speeds. In this case you can have all 14 cores running at 3.3GHz. The ASRock motherboard already has the patched BIOS in place so all you have to do it plug and play.

If you wish to go back to stock, simply update the motherboard with the latest BIOS from ASRock from within the BIOS itself. I will supply the patched BIOS anyway so you can always go back. As long as you have a decent CPU cooler then it is fine. even at full tilt my CPU never went over 60 deg. Although I did this for interest sake, my server sat idling 99% of the time anyway so a bit of a waste for me

Here is the Anandtech thread where it was all discovered and people built the mods:-

Page 3 – What controls Turbo Core in Xeons?

Also here is an explanation of all core vs single core boosts :
Actual CPU Speeds – What You See Is Not Always What You Get

Looking at current prices on ebay especially RAM which is crazy right now, this lot is worth about £800 or so, so I think this is a good price.

Price and currency: £550
Delivery: Delivery cost is included within my country
Payment method: BT or PPG
Location: Harrogate
Advertised elsewhere?: Advertised elsewhere
Prefer goods collected?: I have no preference

For Sale – iMac Pro 3.2GHz 8-core Intel Xeon W processor 64 GB Ram & 2TB Hard drive

Hi,

Before I put this on the bay I thought I would try here first as prefer to sell to a forum member whenever possible.

I bought this last week in an auction, it’s brand new but I have taken it out of the box and checked it out as I had planned to use on a job that has now altered and it’s no longer needed. The mouse and keyboard are still in packaging and completely unused.

Specs:

IMac Pro

  • 3.2GHz 8-core Intel Xeon W processor, Turbo Boost up to 4.2GHz
  • 64GB 2666MHz DDR4 ECC memory
  • Radeon Pro Vega 56 with 8GB of HBM2 memory
  • 2TB SSD storage
  • Magic Mouse 2 – Space Grey
  • Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad – British – Space Grey

It’s obviously still in warranty plus it has Apple Care + so it’s covered for three years as from a July 1st 2019.

To buy new from Apple it would cost £5799, I paid £4600 last week but looking for £3800 ono for a quick sale. Just to reiterate this item was brand new unopened last week and has only been opened to check and prepare for a job that then cancelled.

You can see from my feedback I have an excellent record plus I have been a member on here since 2001.

Collection would be best (I am in West Sussex) but could arrange delivery if that is only option.

Happy to answer any questions etc. Will give it a day or two and then advertise elsewhere. can upload photos tomorrow.

Price and currency: 3800
Delivery: Delivery cost is not included
Payment method: Bank transfer
Location: West Sussex

Last fall, we expanded voice control support by introducing the Xbox Skill for Alexa, which enables you to navigate and interact with Xbox One using voice commands through your Alexa-enabled devices. Today we are adding more supported countries and new Alexa voice commands to see what’s happening on Xbox Game Pass and check in with your Xbox Live friends.

The July 2019 Xbox Update introduces the ability to find out what’s new to Xbox Game Pass, what the popular games are, what’s leaving the catalog, and more; simply by asking Alexa. Try saying, “Alexa, ask Xbox what’s new on Game Pass?”Want to stay up-to-date with what your friends are doing on Xbox? You can ask Alexa who’s online, what your friends are playing, and more. Try saying, “Alexa, ask Xbox what are my friends playing?”

For Sale – REDUCED – Apple Magic Trackpad 2, Magic Mouse 2, AirPort Extreme & Twelve South Magic Wand

Like others, I’m having an Apple clear out to make way for my recent purchases on here

I’ve tried to get on with both but have given up, the mouse especially but I’ve just recently bought a Logitech MX Master 2S mouse which does all I need. No remaining warranty, box or lightning cable with either.

Magic Trackpad 2 – Perfect condition on the top and all ends. On the rear are a couple of marks. One is a single faint scratch towards the top but no matter what I do, I cant capture it. The other is as shown. Obviously neither affect use and aren’t seen anyway! Works perfectly.

Magic Mouse 2 – This is in perfect condition and works perfectly.

Both will come fully charged and will be securely packaged. I’ve used/mislaid the lightning cables so I’m sure you’ll have your own for recharging.

Will consider offers/deals for combinations…

Cheers!

Price and currency: £75, £50, £83 & £23
Delivery: Delivery cost is not included
Payment method: PPG, BT or cash on collection if you’re local
