      @ZombieBarioth you actually can wear out a CPU by overclocking it. After a year or two the CPU may need more voltage to hit the same speed or you may have to lower it.

    • ZombieBarioth
      ZombieBarioth Month ago +3

      There's a misconception that you can wear out the CPU by overclocking or running it at full load too much, so either the seller doesn't know better or they're playing into it themselves.
      If you're listing the frequency, temperature, and whatnot then it shows you clearly know what you're doing, and less informed buyers are more likely to see you as some sort of expert.

    Just used your promo code for the windows 10 pro, thanks man i needed one after my build hahah


    Umm 800watt cause u could upgrade GPU downlink that sorta triggered me I used brand new vs old 450 watt I replaced bad caps in and it did 11.7 volts and new insignia did 11.988 volts so 800 watts for higher end cards are needed so it doesnt cause random crashing
    I tested a powered hungry opteron and old i3
    And r9 280x

  • Bound4Earth

    I disagree with taking out the overclocking bit, as it is important and no different then listing a video card not being used for mining when selling. It means that no damage has been done to the components. Especially with the issues that Ryzen 3 is having when overclocking with static voltages on all cores in range of default can just destroy the CPU. Now the CPU will only work properly with lower voltages and this can hurt the boosting feature, etc. You can easily damage a CPU with overclocking if you do not know what you are doing and even if you know how to do it can cause damage and a CPU. You can talk about how trustworthy a comment like this is, but you do not talk about that aspect and claim you can test it, but without the knowledge you would never know the CPU was damaged or now only accepts lower voltages because it can still run windows and play games. As you state a CPU is not fragile, but overlocking is not a simple or easy task and can easily damage a CPU. I think you take this far too lightly. If I am buying a used CPU or GPU I would go out of my way to try and find one that was not overlocked.

    I might leave the EVGA in myself as I know that their products with a part number that ends in "KR" have a warranty that follows the item and not the person, extra value to me if its not too old. Oh and remember if you base your pricing on ebay prices I would go by SOLD items, not whats listed as those obviously havent sold and might be over priced.

    To add to your point on trying to move and make the sale QUICKLY. We are dealing with an AGING PC that price that is volatile and only in the negative direction. Imagine if AMD announces the release of their 4000 series, BOOM your PC takes a price cut because those would be buyers would just rather wait for the 3000 series to be put onto the used market.
    Time is money, and in this instance the money is burning in the capital that you have (the PC) while depreciation takes a strong hold. This is the philosophy that I took when trying to sell my PC, I was just trying to minimize my losses instead of trying to maximize my revenue.

    I would give him no more than $450 usd for it. no offense it's 4 years old and used. 250gb ssd and 1tb hdd is way too small. the only thing of any worth is the 1070 which is easily outstripped by the new amd cards by a cool mile. never overclocked sounds like you're lying. i simply don't care. most people buying used hardware want a good deal. if i'm paying Apple prices I would rather buy a Mac.

    Based on my experience with picking up a relatively new condition oc edition 1060 6gb 2 years ago for only $150, this rig is overpriced for sure. If he had it for about $600-$650 ish at most, it would be a steal, and pretty much spot on cost wise considering its dated hardware as greg said himself.

  • CrimFerret
    CrimFerret Month ago

    I'm sorry, I don't think he's going to get any bites at even $700. I don't care what the parts sell for used. The CPU is virtually worthless at this point in a complete system thanks to AMD. Given what's in that, I'd probably consider parting out the Motherboard and CPU. The rest of that system would make for a really good base for a Ryzen based system. If he could get a couple hundred for the MB/CPU he'd have a good portion of enough to do a really nice upgrade to a 2700X or better.

    It's funny you mention the prices of a used i7-6700. I was helping a friend upgrade his PC which had a Pentium G4560. Thought we could just throw a used i7-6700 in it. Turns out we could get a new Ryzen 2700 with a budget B450 board for the same price and then sell the old mobo and CPU. Sometimes, used hardware makes no sense.

    Never sell on eBay. I've made the mistake 4 times and all 4 times I was fucked over by shitty buyers abusing eBay's buyer protection policy. I sold a NZXT Kraken X42 which "arrived with no cables" despite them being in the photos and zero incentive to remove eBay took the buyers side and I refunded $20 of the sale. An i7 8700K which "is not what I purchased" wanted a return and I received a i5 4690K in return brought it up with eBay and again they took the buyers side. Other 2 were both watches, one that had literally never been worn he wanted a slight refund because of "Scratches" where he showed the brushed metal side of the watch thinking that was damage. Again eBay took the buyers side and I had to refund $15 and lastly there was NOTHING wrong with the watch, buyer didn't claim anything was wrong but requested a return on a "No returns" auction and eBay once again, took his side somehow.

    Wonderful site to buy off of because they take the buyers side in seemingly all situations.

    I don't disagree that $850 is the high side, but you have to price high to get the price you need to get. Most of these people are going to see it at $700 and try to offer you $550 for it. I personally would add some benchmarks, and follow your picture advice, and maybe find a cheap kb/mouse and a 1080p monitor from the thrift store and repost it @$850 and then take no less than $750.
