[FS] whatever is left of my best PSC


Recommended Posts


Up for sale are the remainders of my best PSC, which are the end result of 5 years (2011-2016) of careful binning.

After nearly two years of sitting in my closet untouched, I tried to give them a proper sendoff earlier this year, but the session ended up in a disaster due to lack of proper insulation (as I only had vaseline at my disposal).

Given my current lack of motivation and testing equipment, I would rather pass these on to someone who is still energetic about this type of IC.


Sticks #1 and #2 are part of an early-2011 kit of 2200C7 PI. These have a KO8155 PCB. These still work fine on air, but last time I tried these on cold the system shut down at -50c in BIOS to never POST again. A similar issue has already happened with this kit around 4 years ago, where some oven time has got rid of it for a few sessions. Some results:

Note that my LN2 results were achieved with a very special IMC so I'm not sure if anyone can reproduce the clockspeeds, even in ideal conditions.


Stick #3 is a part of mid-2010 kit of 2300C8 PI. This has a KO8117 PCB. It no longer POSTs even on air, but this has also happened before and was fixed by XA's certified ghetto repair technique :D. Some results:

Last stick is from an early-2010 kit of 2000C9 Tridents. Is absolutely useless on cold as it fails even 1333 6-10-6 even though it's not too bad on air:

The mems are sold as is, i.e. with no original heatsinks, covered in thermal paste, vaseline and bartx aluminium heatspreaders.

These are sold explicitly as damaged and/or dead, so there will be no returns.

I've no idea how to price them in today's reality, so I'd start at 150 Euros excluding shipping, while being open to all reasonable offers.

First two sticks are part of the same kit. The rest are part-outs because many kits are very uneven and when you start molesting them, "having a second stick just for having a complete kit" doesn't really matter anymore.
