Is the EVGA Classified SR-2 still desirable?

Hi Friends! Ive been fortunate enough to get my hands on not 1 but 4  EVGA Classified SR-2 complete with dual Xeons, Noctua coolers, and ram.
I imagine the board is worth for more than the other components.. but are they still considered desirable? I know they one of the only overclock capable Dual Xeon boards, but I just dont know what to do with them.

I know I wont appreciate them, and my partner doesnt want these PC parts taking up a whole room in our house any longer (I also recieved 4 other computers)
But the EVGA SR-2 is what really caught my eye.

Are these still desirable? Are they worth selling?
I had a look on Ebay and on gumtree and nobody seems to be selling them, I have tried to boot them all and they all work and boot into windows.

I have 2 of them loose (pictured) and 2 installed in cases with graphics cards and powersupplies.

Thanks for any help!

Look on ebay under sold listings, there seems to be about one a month for about $300. Seems to be mostly a colletors part.

 

Also, I might be interested in buying one, are you near the sf bay area"

They're cool as fuck and can still hang with modern mid-range if not some modern high-end stuff in multicore workloads.

I am in the land down under I am afraid!
They are super cool. This guy I got all of these parts from was big on overclocking.. one of the PCs I got was an old Asus Rampage extreme, with a custom liquid loop to its GTX690 and its cpu.

Really cool stuff!

They look awesome! I really wish I had a use case for them,
I recieved a tonne of computers at the same time. One appears to be a server, with 4 xeons in it! I turned it on and it posted, but the fan was a server fan so i turned it off fairly quick!
