here's a demo lol
downloading a different copy of it as we speak and no idea how well it will work the 3870X2 does not want to post will have to try something else any other heavily multithreaded stuff yall want to see on it?
Here are some pics of my newly built sandy Bridge build:
Heres my rig ATM. (actually as of a month ago)
Just moved house recently and my next plan is to give this rig a nice overhaul with a new case.
Here's my new h70 cooling my also new 980x! Case is a bit messy as I've taken a lot of stuff out and put new stuff in recently. Also just installed an awesome new sata3 2TB drive so i finally have some friggin storage space! sorry for crappy pic too, my droidx cam isn't the best.
wow that sux about the 3870x2, hope ya get it workin.
nice rigs guys
Finally have pics of my new rig.
Nice close-up of the GTX 580.
Coolermaster HAF 922 case.
I love stickers! The nVidia one is an old one that I got off eBay a while back.
CD! how does this preform to say a 775 quad or a 1366 quad in performance? 16 cores should have the advantage but im thinking the older hardware would slow it down alittle? are you crunching that rig?
in folding i'd say it should kick ass, for gaming not so much.
dont forget that every CPU has its own memory controller, thats a lot of added bandwidth - even if its on old, slow ram
it will be soon right now i am still playing with os's it does perform pretty well 2.93ghz 8c/16t i7 still beats it but in heavily multithreaded stuff it still holds its own.
dont forget about numa!
(really old article)
So how much does it cost, compared to a common i7 setup?
for normal people the board alone is $800+ i got it in trade for a partial mini itx rig on xs
From what I've seen at XS you can get a setup with 4 quad-core Opterons for about $800 or so.
thats about right if shop around these chips (8350s) are not that expensive i got my last quads 8347HE's for $40ea
Hell CD if you ever decide to get rid of it, i would be interested cause that would make a nice cruncher! i would think it would ATLEAST get 6K PPD
Oh wow, that's insane! I take it the board is by far the most expensive part?
I'd estimate ~1-1.3k PPD per quad, so 4-5.4k for them all. Or, regrettably, less than a SB i7 @ ~4ghz
Should be getting in the last of my parts tonight i'll post pics of hexy with her new name plate later if all goes well. shes almost finished !
should get more than that the
linked off of xs
jeez this page requires 25.5MB of downloading to view it HOLY! shit.. Can some of you guys postin up huge ass pics please resize them, some of them are bigger than my monitor which is a complete waste of bandwidth
Hi all. Long time no post for me so I thought I would throw in a pic of the i7 rig. I just finished re routing tubes and I am happy with the temps now. Never mind the dust
looking good craig!
I got something tonight to show. Waiting on a video card.
Nice stuff Cant wait for my SB setup to arrive, hoping for 5GHZ 24/7
<--------see for specs
What do you have your SB clocked at atm?
So how's that single bay reservoir/pump working for you. Is it powerful enough and quiet?
I read a few reports of people having excess noise issues with them.
