    Depends on if you want the most £ or the most trouble free sale.

    More £ = more hassle by selling separately.

    Usually separate, but I’d have a look on E-Bay and see what’s selling.

    If the CPU is top of the line for its socket then I would consider selling everything separately. If not I would sell as a bundle.

    There are always people looking to replace a dead MoBo, upgrade their ram or their CPU, and selling the complete bundle can be attractive too.

    Almost no one is looking to replace their CPU with one of the same type because they hardly ever break ?

    Ain’t that a fact.   Its a damn shame that that AMD and Intel don’t make Kettles………..❗

    Looking online I see the i7 990X is now about £140 instead of the silly money it had been.

    I am thinking of buying one, partly because it has 2 more cores than my i7 930 but mostly because it is the very best CPU that will fit in my socket 1366 and I can say I own a CPU that once cost £1000 ?

    That’s a bargain. I’m still rocking that cpu and it’s perfectly fine for alot of games, never mind day to day stuff. Also have an i5 750 that is just as good.

    A great pair of cpus that just keep going and going well. Both been living at 3.8Ghz for about 10 years. The i5 ran for its first few years fan less and (underclocked) as a media /TV pc. Just the cooler from a titen fenrir on it. And been happier at 3.8 since. My girl does Minecraft and roblox recording on it. Uses my origial 30gb ssd as as a scratch disk, I’m amazed that ssd is still going it gets filled and over written evey other day.

    Ive not done a health check on it, but I doubt it’s in good shape, as it’s been doing this for a good 3 years.

    A up Lads you was correct about selling seperate and not as a bundle.

    But it has amazed me what people will pay for 6 years old kit as a bundle or seperate. Just weird. This implies I did well and I did.

    One eye opener. I only sell in the UK and this is all plain to see on my settings. But a forigner won the part and insisted on posting abroad. I told him no and I phoned E-Bay. Who said when an account is set for uk postage only, then a none uk bidder should not be able to bid on that item.. This impiles the proverbial forigner lives here in the UK. Because a VPN would not work and E-Bay know what they are doing under the hood.

    Needless to say: sale to divergent was denied.
