    Only got thru one of the Hyper 212+ brackets tonight. The other 3 will go fast tomorrow, as I now know what to do to make it work. Might have it running tomorrow night, but most likely Thursday.

    Big thanks to Musky @ [H] for creating this mod!:toast:

    Awesome! So you're going to run Linux on it? What distro?

    I will. Need to do lots of testing with this platform.

    Great looking build can't wait for more pics and info. I thought on server boards you had to run Registered ECC ram?

    For some reason, I'm only seeing 32 core in system monitor. Being a total linux noob things have come to a crawl. Who wants to help me get this board optimized?

    You may need to configure and recompile the kernel or use aptitude to install the server kernel. You installed Ubuntu Server 10.10, right? The desktop kernel isn't configured for 4p servers and the fact that it's stopping at 32 cores is interesting since that means part of a CPU is being used which rules out hardware being the problem (if the BIOS sees it all.) Also consider that 32 is a nice pretty power of 2.

    All in all, I would install the latest server kernel, these packages:
    Code:
    jdoane@khan:~$ apt-cache search server kernel latest
    linux-headers-server - Linux kernel headers on Server Equipment.
    linux-image-server - Linux kernel image on Server Equipment.
    linux-server - Complete Linux kernel on Server Equipment.
    So you want:
    Code:
    jdoane@khan:~$ sudo apt-get install linux-headers-server linux-image-server linux-server
    Once it works, I would remove the old kernel to keep /boot clean.

    If that doesn't work, use aptitude to download the linux sources, and reconfigure and build the kernel from scratch. Make sure to
    Code:
    make -j33
    so you can compile with all 32 threads so it will be zippy quick if you end up having to compile it.

    Before you know it, you'll be running 48 cores. :D

    Personally, I go for the latest LTS release on new servers and I typically use their server installer instead. If I want a GUI, I just add stuff as I need them.

    It's Ubuntu 10.10 desktop. Many others with 4P/48 core rigs are running it with no issues. Do your commands above change due to the OS version?

    I have the driver CD from Supermicro and need to install it, but cannot figure out HOW to run it?
    What commands and must everything be done in "terminal"? The onboard video is stuttering and I cannot get the network controller to work...so, no internet to download with....:banghead:

    I'm a complete novice when it comes to Linux and I gave up on one of my rigs 1 year back due to internet problems but I found this and it might help you https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/WirelessTroubleShootingGuide/Drivers

    Is this monster going to be running WCG or F@H?
    I always thought WCG for CPU and F@H for GPU.

    Purpose built for F@H, but will dabble in WCG. Maybe even a "gun for hire" to recoup some of the costs :roll::D:pimp:
