i might have this in a few weeks or next week depending on when i can go get it
what are the full specs of it? those pci-x cards look interesting, are those SSDs?
No thats the RAM. This server is pre-SSD time
Those carbon fibre wheel rims are distracting, i can't see any computer there
Thanks, I'm hoping to get some consistent, if low, points out of it
The heat output of that must be ferocious (and I bet it's loud as hell)....but enjoy
more folding / crunching stuff
[FS/FT] 20mm's New Stock
That's alarming! :shadedshu
its not so bad when its started up i think, + sounded like a bad camera/mic , so the sound is prolly lower
Still....I've had 2 servers, and they were both alarmingly loud. I got rid of both of them because they were just too loud
Yeah, I've fixed a lot of like even regular lower end dell PC's and such that start up really loud and then quite down. Pointless if you ask me. But the one in that video was REALLY loud.
The Core Duo has already turned in some results and it looks like it's going to be right at 500 PPD. Not a bad add
Any bit helps dude. Thank you.
Gladly, and she was very enthusiastic about getting it running. She asked me how she could help more, so I may be getting more of the computers in her house going
What are the other specs? Just curious. Tell her we all say THANK YOU!
Lenovo Thinkpad T60, 2GB DDR2, a 100GB 5400RPM drive, Ubuntu 10.10 x86 (she loves! Ubuntu)
I'm not sure what other computers they have
I was asking about other computers
Hey I need to talk to you later, I'll PM you.
OK, sounds good
I don't know what the others are, but I think they have a few more semi-modern Thinkpads. She didn't know either
Regardless should be about another 1k ppd total right?
I hope. I'm not sure if they're as excited about WCG as she is....but she said she'll try to convince them
And then I may be moving the i7 to somewhere where it can crunch/fold basically 24/7 at the expense of only ~10 hours a day on the X4. Still should be better overall....we'll see
The future looks bright.
It would definitely be odd to have an i7 w/ several GPUs at a friend's house just for crunching, but it could be cool. And I'm pretty sure that he would be interested in it...I would. The X4 would be plenty for daily use, and I could always upgrade it to an X6. Probably wouldn't cost much more than $50 after the sale of the X4
You can get a 1055T
That would be the plan, I probably wouldn't be OCing much (if at all) anyways
Or maybe I'd just get a better mobo so I could add more GPUs for FAH, we'll see
Yeah 1055 is the way to go for dedicated AMD crunchers.
