Anyone Interested in W530 Parts?

#1 Post by ThinkTwinki » Thu Jan 23, 2020 12:05 am

I purchased a 2447-2B0 W530 a while ago, and couldn't get it to function. Too many problems.[0][1]

Anyone interested in using it for parts? It's just collecting dust in my attic right now.

I have:
- Practically new W530 chassis
- Two K2000M 04X1527 motherboards: 1). De-soldered BIOS chips, no CPU; 2). Virgin motherboard with Intel Core i7-3740QM
- Individual CMOS battery
- Two pairs of both BIOS chips
- 170W charger

Willing to part with all of it in exchange for any W500 compatible parts. Apologies if this belongs in the marketplace sub-forum, but my intention isn't to sell it. If you wanna buy all of these parts at a massive discount and flip them, I'm open to that too. I just want the machine gone and recoup some of the monetary and emotional costs invested into it.

Yeah probably lol. If the heatsink+fan comes with a stock W530, I got one. You might need to tweak your fan/processor settings though.
