I just listed my Opteron 4p setup on my F/S/T thread, PM me if anybody is interested
I was looking around today for a G34 board that was ready for the 6200's and I couldn't find jack. But the chips are available. Is everybody just flashing the bios on their 6100 boards. When are we going to see ones that don't need a flash? Thanks.
According to TYAN home page this will handle 6200s http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813151219
Yeah, but I think it's still a 6100 board that you would have to flash. Since this would be my first time with a server board, I wouldn't even be able to boot to flash it. I need something that has the right bios out of the box and there doesn't seem to be anything.
Also, I only want a 2P board - if I get anything at all. Even the 6272 is over $500, so I'm no where near making any decisions just yet.
What kind of PPD/Watt does it do? And would shipping over the pond be an option?
You just can't resist, it's a very tempting buy.
Thanks to Paulie, my numbers should be up. I should be getting a CPU cooler which I expect to absolve my issues with my E2140 rig.
Big Thanks to Paulliie. Hope he don't hit me for my last post.
paulieg is a great guy, always willing to help!
I just being lazy here but what would the cost be for an opteron 6200 setup? 16 cores? That would just send my roommate into a jealous rage!
What do you guys think about this?
Can we pass Ukraine before challenge ends?
That I suck at math
Sorry - meant to say "too lazy".
Actually I found some energy and found that it is actually quite affordable.
Definitely can pass them
Looking at their production on WCG it appears that their numbers have been going down steadily since the start of the contest.
We passed them today! Great job everyone.
Next up- BOINC@Poland?
Challenge ends today or tomorrow I think.
It ends tomorrow, they're only less than 20,000 ahead.
They outdid us in points today though so we have to rally back hard tomorrow!
Sadly due to a much higher power bill and holiday bills coming up, it looks like I'm going to have to part out the extra crunching rig. If anyone's wants a certain part let me know. Lauren and I may even be selling her laptop at this point. I also have a server set up I got from work that I most likely won't be using. It's not the newest and greatest by any means. But I'm sure it'd be fun for someone to mess around with.
I'm not going to stop the quad from crunching thou, they'll keep on busting out WUs when they aren't in use.
Sucks dude, economy has hit us all man!
Randal, PM me what you are parting out. Might be interested.
If your interested let me know. I will be giving crunchers discounts on my prices.
Had some trouble with one of my crunchers not connecting for work, was really odd, couldn't attach new project or anything.
Looked at the WCG forums and turns out the newest AMD drivers can interfere with BOINC! :shadedshu If this happens to you, you will need to manually edit the config.xml file to include:
This will disable GPU access for BOINC, so don't do this if you run GPUGrid project for example
Sucks to hear that man, these really are tough times. But you've given it the full beans all this time, and you're still continuing in some way, parting out to other crunchers too, so respect for that
Have you seen my stats today Dan. 2600k at work. Also, thanks for the heads up on the new drivers conflicting.
What's it still doing at stock, eh!?
It can AutoOC with safe settings up to 4.4GHz which is like 5.7K PPD (155Watt) Or are you waiting for other parts?
