    The list for this MB is older and contains some now hard to locate kits.

    The X4 cpu you have supports up to 1333 natively.

    Here, for you to get 1866 that worked the FIRST time I think it best for you to ask your friend what make and model of 1866 he was using. You can maybe, assuming your X4 plays nice with them, lower the timing on whatever you get 1866 wise and end with some fast 1600. But going from 1333 stock that your X4 is to 1866 most likely req'd some higher voltages and some timing tweaks as well. Settings that he, over time with knowledge/experience, found to have worked well for that particular board/cpu combo.

    You here want, and I assume need, a system that fires up 1st time don't have the luxury of trial and error to glean what works and what doesn't. Parsec and myself, well myself anyways, might seem hesitant recommending choices and here fall back to the MB's memory list to "guarantee' that what you get will work out of the gate. It appears your money is tight, so to go throwing it at unproven memory is not a productive option.
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.
    ____If you are overclocking, underclocking, or undervolting any parts, informing us of this and their values would prove beneficial in helping you.

    #2 - G.Skill RAM Configurator for your boardSamsung Memory for your boardLatest AMD Chipset Drivers/WindowsLatest AMD Graphics Drivers/WindowsLatest Intel Drivers

    #3 - Please use the eXtreme Outer Vision Power Supply Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be your PSU at issue.
    ____Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.

    ...
    That's 18A total for the apparently two 12V rails.
    Parsec, check this out: Apevia model ATX-AS600W 12V

    +3.3V 34A, +5V 36A, +12V1 18A, +12V2 20A, -5V 0.3A, -12V 0.8A, +5VSB 2.0A

    With the 8-pin CPU plug and the 6-pin GPU plug. Found it in the pile. Thought you'd like it.

    Can you advise re: the PowerMac case? Any reason I shouldn't use it?

    Where in the world is this magical "pile" you keep finding off the wall stuff in?

    Well, that PSU is better than the first one, and seems like it could be useable and have a chance of working. A bit of a relic, from 2006. You would need adapter cables if the video cards have eight pin power connections.

    OMG that Mac case... who the heck knows if it would work for you?! Just what you need, more non-standard, not made for DIY use parts. Yeah, it looks cool, with upside down mother board tray mounting and who knows what else.

    Actually, a fine addition to your Mutt-puter.

    I host a hackspace, teaching high school students robotics. People are occasionally like, "Here is a bunch of crap I don't need, can you use it?"

    Which is how I got the idea, noticing that what was piling up was looking an awful lot like five or six computers.

    It's up and passing POST, outputting to monitor. Now I just have to use Acronis Backup to move my existing system over to it. Thanks for all your help :)

    Great, glad it's working for you. Seems to be the system is your Specs? Using that Norwood micro PS again? I kinda doubt it.

    Depending upon your "existing system", a backup moved to that hermaphroditic melange of parts ranging from the wretched to the sublime, may be your next headache (hey, at least I didn't call it crap.)

    Seriously, the difference in drivers and hardware (like from an Intel system to AMD) will cause all kinds of issues. What is your existing system?

    You need to take a course in PC building... if one existed of course. That is a need waiting to be filled, you could start that at your school. I'd enjoy doing that.

    I would love to pick my way through your collection of... stuff, who knows what else lurks within, such as $2000 workstation graphics cards (that is no joke, that is what you are apparently using right now.)

    Okay Parsec, over the winter break I'm gonna take pictures of everything up there and we can identify every piece. I suspect I've got all the best goodies taken out in this cluster**** screening process of "make a working machine," but let's see. You got notes and curriculum for a PC building course? I get to teach a tech elective every Spring.

    I'm planning on running Ubuntu on it, I suppose. The OEM windows license on my laptop won't transfer without a level of hacking I'm not really prepared to go into (yet). If you got a recommendation on how to get the best performance out of that I'd appreciate it.

    Since you said the two GPUs were probably incompatible via SLI, I was thinking of installing them both and dedicating one to bitcoin mining, but I'm worried about the heat produced by such a thing and frankly have no idea how to optimize heat distribution here. Thoughts?
