    Hope she gets well soon. My mom's been ill for the past week and these things ain't pretty. But yeah people come first, so best of wishes go to both of you.

    Don't worry about the points quite yet, we're doing well as a team and as soon as my mom's fine and I get my work training out of the way there's that cruncher recruiting competition to look forward to ;)
    Chicken Patty says thanks.

    Thanks a lot for all the wishes guys. I'm sitting right in from of her now, she's doing well. She got a hip reconstruction yesterday so she's gotta go through a process now to start walking again and stuff.

    DON, if you make it out here let me know, looking forward to meeting the great DON :toast:

    Glad to hear your mom is doing better, CP.

    Does anyone have any experience playing with building a baewolf cluster? I've got about 10 core 2 duo desktops that I just retired from production this morning at my office. I'd like to get them running linux and as a cluster to crunch for TPU... any thoughts?

    Never tried baewolf, but back in the day I did try ClusterKNOPPIX with a half-dozen P3s that I ran SETI on. My impression is that 6 different copies of Windows 2000 was far easier. So my overall experience is to shy away from Linux clusters, howerver, putting Ubuntu on each of them should work quite well

    tks Ion --

    You guys think that it might just be better to load up the BOINC client on each, and just let 'em rip?

    Sweet momma! 20 C2D's :eek: Woudnt want your power bill. I have 4 x2's running on my farm right now, adds about $80 to $100 extra monthly. Thats ok, what would I do with them if they werent crunching? They would sit and collect dust bunnies. My goal for my farm is 6 to 8 systems eventually all X4's. That is till I get my new shop built. Then we will go shit ass nuts on some systems.
    @ CP. Ive had knee , shoulder and elbow surgerys (sports injuries), not fun stuff to rehab from. A hip would be worse. :shadedshu Shes got a lot of painful rehab coming. I wish her the best. How old is she, if I may ask?

    if you want to run Linux on them you can use the LiveCD that already has Bonic installed and ready to go for you. That is a easier way and should save alittle time

    Ok, I figured out what was the issue with my AMD rig.

    At nights I have a 120mm LED fan blowing over the RAM and stuff that I disconnect so the LED's don't bother me since it's out in the open. I have that fan connected via a 4 pin molex to the pump on the H50. Then they both connect to the 4 pin on the PSU. Unknowingly, I didn't pull the fan connector from the pump. I pulled the fan and pump from the PSU connector. I guess you'll know what happened from there heh?

    It's all connected now, and fixed. Rig is back up and crunching at full bore.
    KieX and [Ion] say thanks.

    Burn a couple of Windows Server 2008 ISO's, crank them up to 4 GHz and let them run Rice and you have +15.000 PPD just there. Top that D.Law ;)

    My Sunbeam fan controller lets you shut fans off. Just grab one like it. Or you could always just clip the LEDs. That's what I did on all my led fans that came with cases and whatnot. I hate LED fans, but it's a shame to waste a good fan, so I just clipped all the leds out.

    A cluster would be kick ass for big adv work units in Folding @ Home tho. Also a good cause.

    Na, just grab one of these!:D There's more than one solution to solve those pesky LED fans a night. This lady assured me she had the solution for your problem and would be right over to help you get through the night just as soon as she found where she left it after the photo shoot.

    p.s. If you didn't notice, the solution is in the lower left corner of the image.:laugh:

    Meh, I don't want to ruin the fans in case I ever decide I want one. As far as fan controllers I have one here, but don't like the added cable clutter. The stock Corsair fan is keeping load temps at peak 44Âșc.
