    Missioncode got a reaction from Parkergk in Black Noctua fans... Yes! But when?   
    They said in Q1 of 2014 and they are going to be cheaper than the brown ones as it wont have all the bells and whistles. NO low noise adapter, no rubber mounts, No rubber corners. Linus covered all of this when he did the video at CES or was it CompuTex

    I've sold easily a couple thousand items through Craigslist and got my dealings on there down to an art form.
     
     
    - Require a phone number from people.  No number = no reply
    Lowballers and time wasters don't like you having their number.
     
    - Avoid giving out your number until you are 100% someone is a serious buyer.
     
    - No texting, if they are too lazy to pick up the phone, chances are they won't show, will dick around...etc.
    "Sent from my iPhone" is a red flag for time wasters, at least in Vancouver.
     
    - Pickup only from a location close to my house.
    People who expect delivery of a $10 item will screw you over, try to lowball you even further, expect tech support...etc
    if they don't show, at least you don't have to travel far.
     
    The further you travel to a buyer, the bigger the chance that they will use that to beat you down to a lower price
    by wasting as much of your time as possible until you give in so you can get the sale over with.
     
     
    - Call cell phone number replies first before landline.  
    Landliner's tend to be further away aren't into any hurry to set a time or place and will expect you to deliver a item regardless of how low the price is.
     
     
    "NO LOWBALLERS" in bold print. cuts those replies down pretty good.
     
    - Set a firm price, high enough to be worth it and low enough to attract a decent amount of replies don't bother with OBO, it just invites morons who want charity.
     
    - If they don't answer their phone in 2 calls spread apart by a few hours, chances are they won't answer at all, or bother showing up even after you agree to a time.
     
    - Don't hold items, people who ask you to do that are either broke or shopping around..
     
    - With electronics,  deal with men first.,  Women tend to think Craigslist is a place they can go window shopping and
    waste your time because the item doesn't match their shoes.
     
    - Men who show up with their wives to buy electronics.   He brought her to try and get you to lower your price.
    stick to your guns with these types, don't let them waste your time.
     
    - Avoid having people come to your home if there is no good reason for it.
     
    Reasons:
     
    1) Some people will come back claiming something is wrong if they find something cheaper or change their mind.
     
    2) Some people will show up at your house looking for tech support.
     
    3) Some people have the idea that other items in your house are open to bidding and have no qualms about taking a look around.
    at your stuff.
     
    4) There are some people who will, given a chance take a little extra off your porch on the way out after the buy something from you.
     
     
    Setting up rules when dealing with Craigslist buyers will save you a lot of headache.
     
     
     
    EDIT:   iMPORTANT if you are selling CPU's, RAM or GPU's...
     
    Write down any serial numbers or any other numbers that are UNIQUE to that particular item.
    There are people on Craigslist who will buy CPU's and then come back with a dead one claiming
    you sold them a dud and demand their money back.
     
    That's another reason you only meet buyers in a public place.
