I am new here in the forum but have been around a long time mining and lurking as you call it (I'm just not really the social gregarious type)
I have an oddball 5870 here that was given to me because they replaced the fan and had a bit of a problem.(yeah, go ahead, you can think I did it,lol)
The fan shroud/heatsink housing is loose because it was rubbing but it works "as is" perfectly as I tossed it into this computer I am posting this from and its mining at 950/300 @ 61C = 425Mh/s and has worked flawlessly the past couple weeks.
It would be easy to fix it I suppose,
BUT, I don't do single GPU's generally so I'd like to sell it AS IS
for any reasonable offer as a way of interacting with the community.
I would prefer BTC and I'm not greedy.
I will pay the shipping.
Oh, the trust issue, I am open to suggestions on however you would like to handle that.
I will monitor this until midnight tonight EST and will ship it first thing in the morning to the highest offer or not if no one is interested.
And I won't be offended at all if no one wants it.
