As the title says. I have one reference cooler from an XFX 5970 BE card. If it fits I can sell one card with it.

Cards have been running at 820/150/1.03V.

230€ per card, you pay the shipping (about 10€ I guess)

Bitcoins or a traditional bank transfer.

If the cards are in good condition (when was the last time you mined with them at these settings?) I'm willing to pay 440€ for the 2 including shipping to France. I can add 10€ for the original heatsink.
What is the fittings size? Is there a special connector included to make a direct connection between the 2 cards easier (for Crossfire setups where the water comes in a first card and enters the second directly without any tubing).

Is paying with Bitcoins and escrow acceptable (through juggalodarkclow for example)?

Another questions : do they work properly at 0.95V (ie: with noticeably less power consumption than 1.05V at the same frequency)?

They are mining as we speak.

They work at 0.95. Can you tell me some right core/mem settings so I can test them and let you know the wattage at the plug.

I don't have a CF connector, there is just some tube between the connectors. Fittings size G1/4 if that's what you are asking.

460€ with the heat sink and we have a deal!

Few months ago I would have agreed to escrow but not anymore. I just don't trust anyone here enough. If that's a dealbreaker, I understand.

Any previous successful deal here on BitcoinTalk? I've seen you around but don't know much about you.

I'll think about the 460€: there are other (non WC) 5970 I'm looking at, the 440(+10) offer was based on what I'm offering for the other 5970s and the expected bonus for the wc. I'll wait a bit for both your answer to the power draw question and the answers to my other offers and confirm here.

For power draw, 650MHz at 1.05 and 0.95V with the PSU model would be quite useful.

G1/4 is good for me.

PSU is Nexus RX-1000, 80+ bronze

With 650/150/1.05V wattage was 465 and with 650/150/0.95V it's 400W.

Since you have other options I'll drop my price to that 450€ Cheesy

I've bought eight singles from yjacket: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=89673.0
Sold two of them to user dobo79: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=60138 he is online pretty often so I'd assume he answers PMs pretty quick.

I bought this whole rig with these 5970s from Xfinity: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=109773.msg1193341#msg1193341
made some slight changes - bigger rad, different mobo, cpu etc - and now getting rid of the original GPUs.

I've only one thing to clear up: I see on https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=109773.msg1193341#msg1193341 that a 120mm fan was used. Did you have to cool the cards in any way other than the water cooling ?

It's a little odd that you bought this and sell the cards so soon: in only one month you changed almost everything from the rig (only the frame and PSU seem to remain). Do you have a special purpose with this kind of rig?

Sorry if I seem to be overly cautious.

No, I don't have any fans blowing on them. Watercooling keeps everything under 43C (room temp 21C)

I have all the stuff but they are in different rigs. Just trying to get rid of some GPUs that I don't need. I already have two 7970s and a bunch of 5870s. These are easier to sell.

Finally managed to do a bank transfer this morning.
Just so people know, although my bank (Crédit Agricole Ile-de-France) has a form on their customer website for SEPA transfers and I tried to use it on Saturday October the 27th, they needed:
  • 2012/10/30: a visit to the local branch with ID (branch is closed on Sundays and Mondays)
  • 2012/10/31: a phone call to notice them I still couldn't do the transfer then an email with a copy of MXRider's IBAN/BIC
  • 2012/11/01: waiting for the national holiday to pass
  • 2012/11/02: 2 phone calls from them to finally sort out what didn't work on their end

That's 6 days to be able to make a bank transfer to a foreign account... which will take 3 more days to complete!
And people complain about 10 minutes confirmations Smiley
