80% off Asus KGPE-D16 motherboard, $11 12-core CPUs

Wed Jul 18, 2018 8:08 am

This is totally impractical, but I had to share... This dual socket, G34 compatible mobo can be had for ~$100 after the promo code is applied.

Drop in a couple vintage Opteron 6174s at $11/ea and you've got yourself the foundation of a 24-core system for $125.

Tell your 2010-self that's not a hot deal. 8)

Why not just buy a used server on Ebay?

You certainly could, but I wanted to share my "amazing" 80% off mobo deal. ;)

Very nice, and I feel stupid cause I am tempted even though I know how wrong it is.

Comes from having owned these in the past:
