Congratz. Has the CPU been de-lidded at all?

You could probably get $360 for the CPU and $130ish for the mobo? Should be relatively easy sells.

No, it hasn't been de-lidded. Value-wise that's pretty close to what I was thinking. Thanks.

Based on my experience I'm thinking that's a bit high. I got $800 for a full bundle including a 1070 ti + a MB/CPU/Mem/NVMe and didn't get insta-bombed with purchase messages (It was up for 3 hours and I only got one).

Based on that, I'd think even $350 for the pair might be top ask. (But in this market who the h e double hockey sticks knows for sure? :) ).

Eh, it would seem like that at first glance but browsing ebay and craigslist can give one a pretty good estimate of what to expect. I'm seeing 8700k's anywhere from $200-$500. All depends on clocks and voltages. Can it hit 5.1GHz stable under 1.4V? Should be a pretty easy sell at $300 if one is desperate.

You could've easily sold that bundle for $1100 +/- 50 if you were patient I'm sure. I'll be listing my entire rig sans RTX 3090 (will include gtx 1080) soon.™ with the intention of getting at least 1K for it. I've got a pretty good chip that's been de-lidded however.
