    Default Anyone have any spare LGA 1155 Motherboards I can have/buy?

    Hey guys

    I've been using my 2600k for quite some time now, and recently the whole system has died. I'm at least 99.9% sure it's the motherboard, and I'd like to get a hold of another one to check without spending a fortune. Trademe has some fairly bleak prospects, I really don't want to be spending more than about $80 for what effectively is a 5 year old second-hand motherboard, and most stuff on there is at least $150 or something silly.

    If anyone has a spare one and is willing to let me buy it off them or have it, even temporarily so that I can test the rest of my system, that would be absolutely amazing.

    Cheers,
    Skeptile2

    They are so hard to find. I recently bought one off eBay for this exact situation.

    I guess its because the sellers would have to split up a working PC, working cpu/mb combo , in order to sell just the mb.
    Then they would be left trying to sell a lone CPU

    With trademe , allways the chance the mb is faulty if sold on it own . Ive been sold used mb's that had intermittent faults

    Might be easier to find the problem changing the CPU(less cost) to see if the Boards iffy

    Cheers for the replies guys, I had a look at Aussie Ebay but once you factor in shipping cost it's still pretty expensive. I think it might be time to grab a 6 core Ryzen...

    Why bother? Time to upgrade. MB, CPU and ram....

    There is only so long you can persist with the old stuff.
