Hi folks, I am looking for donations of secondhand PC hardware Non-working is okay.
Who am I?
My name is Adrian. I am a web developer and PC enthusiast. I also like to Make things.
What am I doing?
I am developing a computer chassis and mounting system design as part of a larger project. This will become a product, and hopefully a company. I plan to crowdfund this project in August or September, but, as of now, all funding is out of my own pocket.
I need samples of PC hardware to help to develop and refine my designs. This hardware will also be used for mockups and to demonstrate usage with my prototypes. Again, non-working components are okay.
What am I Looking For?
- motherboards (ATX, ITX)
- RAM (any brand)
- 3 ½" HDDs (any brand)
- 2 ½" SSDs (any brand)
- GPUs (preferably modern-looking)
- other PCIE devices
- 5 ¼" bay devices (i/o panels, fan controllers, hot-swap drive bays, speakers, etc.)
- cpu coolers, maybe even watercooling hardware
- case fans (120mm or 140mm), radiators
- cords and cables (sata, pcie ribbon cables, others)
- other stuff…?
What's in it For You?
At the moment, my thanks!
When I begin crowdfunding, you will enjoy early access to project information, and I will be able to offer you some of the rewards (whether or not the funding is successful).
Right now, I (unfortunately) cannot offer more details about the project. I am working on submitting patents for several aspects of my designs. Once this is complete, I will also be looking for input from other PC enthusiasts, and you will be the first people I ask.
I really appreciate your time; and I hope you can find something to contribute!
Please PM me if you have something I can use. If you have any questions, please post here and I will answer promptly.
