No longer for sale

To make room for my new private workstation the "old" one has to go.
Since it is pretty well suited for CFD workloads I am first offering it here before selling it on ebay. Maybe someone here can put it to good use.
It has a small mATX form factor that fits well under or even on your desk.

It consists of the following parts
  • Case Fractal Design Define mini C (OB)
  • Power supply BeQuiet Straight Power 10 400W (OB)
  • Mainboard Asus X99-M WS (OB)
  • CPU Intel Xeon E5-1650v3 6-core
  • Cooling Alphacool Eisbaer 280 liquid cooling (OB)
  • Windows 10 professional key in the UEFI of the Mainboard

SSDs, hard drives, memory and graphics card are not included.
The workstation is in excellent working condition and looks as good as new. Most of the accessories from the original boxes are included.
The CPU has an unlocked multiplier and can handle DDR4 reg ECC on this motherboard. I used 4x16GB DDR4-2133 reg ECC running at DDR4-2666.

I can ship it fully assembled, my asking price is 570. Shipping and payment costs are not included. I accept Paypal or bank transfer.
I will only ship within Europe, since it is a rather large and heavy package that will cost me(you) somewhere around 30-50 depending on the destination.
If you want I can disassemble the water cooling for shipping. But it is a rather sturdy construction that should withstand rough handling during transportation.
Just send me a PM if you are interested or ask here if you need to know more.

Additional options
  • The water cooling radiator is blocking the mounting positions for the two additional 3.5" hard drives. In this configuration you can only fit one m.2 SSD on the board and 3 2.5" drives behind the motherboard.
    If you need additional internal 3.5" drives I can swap the water cooling for a Noctua air cooler. (NH-U12DX i4). - free of charge
  • 16GB RAM. 4x4GB DDR4-2800
    This memory has an additional XMP-profile for DDR4-3000 that works fine with this setup +100
  • Graphics card Nvidia Quadro 600 +15
  • Graphics card Nvidia Quadro 2000 +30
  • Swapping all three fans with silent PWM fans from Noctua (2x NF-A14 PWM und 1x NF-S12A PWM) +45
  • m.2 SATA SSD 256 GB SK Hynix, barely used +70

The sale of the above items takes place with no warranties of any kind.
Please do not send me CFD-related questions via PM
