Asking 85BTC for the cases, 40BTC for the mobos, and 25BTC per extra power supply installed (one included); I'll include four all-copper Socket F coolers with each case.
(These are ~$675, ~$450, and ~$250 new, respectively)
I'll include four all-copper Socket F coolers with each case.
All offers considered.
"Almost new" because they are unused (no dust inside, plastic wrap still on the handles) but the top panels of the cases were scratched up in storage. Detailed photos of the condition available upon request.
These cases are really beautiful and are true dual use tower/rack cases. The fans are all large diameter and quiet(ish) and Supermicro sells a tower conversion kit with feet. Mine come with the rails installed (but not the rail receivers). All five drive sleds are included along with four dummy drives (for airflow management).
These cases typically come with two of the three PS hotswap bays occupied, but I have enough power supplies to sell them with 1, 2, or 3 as you choose;
25BTC for each additional power supply (not bad for 1000W ABLECOM
Note the Tyan page specs only quad-core opterons but if you flash the S4985 with BIOS version 3.02, you can turn it into a S4985-SI, making it compatible with Shanghai and Istanbul processors, because the HT can now clock higher than 1000MHz.
