Default Spare Motherboard and CPU for sale cheap

Hi all.

My motherboard died along with I have assume the CPU, in a power surge that my surge protect didn't prevent.

In the past, I had plenty of spare income to rebuild and continually upgrade.

Times being what they are for me, I no longer do and wont in the foreseeable future.

With the death of the board comes the death of my hobby.

So, does anyone have a spare motherboard/cpu they no longer use that they wouldn't mind parting with on the cheap or even no cost?

The old MOBO was a z87 with a 4670K so anything the same or newer would be of use.

I can pay shipping costs if from within North America (I'm in Canada).

Thanks for reading this.

I don't have any spare stuff and it would cost more to ship it anyway..

but i'll send 25$ your way (and maybe another 25$ next month - hopefully others will cime in) if you have a paypal account. Don't give up the hobby !

Why not do a GoFundMe, and we could set it up somewhere in the forum? Maybe we could elect a senior member to be sort of a conservator, and when there's enough money in the account, the executor could buy the equipment and send it to you or whoever the beneficiary is? Maybe this could be a community thing, where when members who have been around here for some years (to keep it from being taken advantage of by outsiders who happen to hear of it and are being opportunistic) can appeal to for help when unforseeable events like this happen? Given the massive investment in time and effort that it takes to become proficient at this, it would truly be a shame to have to abandon it because of some bumps in the road.

We had all kinds of things like this when I was in the Navy, especially in the smaller commands I was at like the submarine I was on from 85-89. No one ever had to do without; we were always there for each other. Why not make this a place like that, with real camaraderie?

I couldn’t say no to such a gracious idea but nor can I start one for myself.

So I managed to find a z87 Mobo for $80, used most of my budget, gambling the cpu was okay...its not, both the Mobo and the cpu are dead. Sigh.

I think I’d better look into selling a kidney...lol
