    Default I Need: All Your Old Dead boards

    I need a lot of motherboards. I'd rather have dead ones because I'm only using them as decoration. My Manager at work has authorized me to wallpaper my department in old motherboards, like my house



    I need about 36 boards total and I think I only have about a dozen extra.

    If you have any old boards collecting dust or know someone who does, I will gladly pay for the shipping to me. I've looked at eBay, but they're all multiples of the same thing and lots of circuit boards that are not motherboards.

    I have a couple. I'll send them all and you can decide what to keep or toss.

    Can it be some SUN and SGI motherboards or are you looking specifically for PC motherboards?

    My precious junkbox full of ancient <ahem> 486 VLB boards ... well, also a bunch of "newer" pieces ranging all the way up to about P4P800-VI stuff ... not a single one works, in fact, every bloody one of these dead mobos has been partially gutted for some connector or socket or whatnot.

    It's been so very, very long since I've ever needed to dip into the box to salvage parts of parts. Probably at least 20 pieces in there (2'x2' moving box, though it contains non-mobo things like dead wheelmouse parts and other such crap too). How many mobos do you want? They come in green, green, green, silvery green, red, blue, and even black.
    My mind says Technic, but my body says Duplo.

    I have 3 old motherbaords. Pretty sure they are dead. Let me know what needs to be done to send them to you. And they're yours.
