I am curious Bogmali, what exactly does your entire Folding/Crunching farm consist of? Judging by numbers alone it seems like you would need a wide angle camera to fit them all in a picture :laugh:

That is truly awesome man. Mind if I ask what you do for a living? Because it's not only your farm that's incredible but your ability to give parts to others that need them :respect:

Thank you! See my avatar for reference;)

I am a firm believer of "Karma";) that whatever it is that you do to others will always find it's way back to you (good or bad).

Nope not me but my employer does:laugh:

Back in my early career (or should I say my prime) I was with Rangers over at Columbus, GA. I am with the Green Berets now (same base as you mentioned).

Still an ongoing project;) Will post some numbers when it gets operational.

this its the first real update on my farm since long... due to space confinements, i followed Kiex´s way of organizing his Farm... on shelves! the gained space for rigs is huge, with proper organisation, i could house up to 10 rigs on it!
planned are not so many till now sadly, but the space is also useful for other things,like subs or speakers, peripherals etc
and tho, i maybe able to fit an additional desk + screen in here^^ Neat!
thanks again for the idea, Kiex!
i can recommend that every space confined cruncher ;)
pictures show the actual chaos after the first Test.... in the next Update, more rigs will be added, and i will try to reorganize the corner ;)

these 2 shelves together are overproportional,like i wanted it, you can make the whole thing much smaller and even slimmer, so that you could reduce the overall size of both together about 30-40 %. of course, the space you have would be much more confined, but hell, what the heck wont we do for crunching?:laugh:

Just a word of caution: Try not to put more than 3 and maybe 4 rigs on one outlet. And that is only if they are straight WCG only rigs. 3 machines with 500watt psu's is 1500w and that is close to the max for one circuit.

Bear in mind there will almost certainly be other outlets on the same circuit.

If you run each rig under load and measure the power draw with a kill-a-watt meter and you're sure that you're not anywhere close to the PSU's max output, then of course, plan accordingly. But in any event, make sure you know what other appliances are on the same circuit and what their draw is.

One german power socket should be able to hold out 230V x16A maximum, for a short time equalling in about 3600W available.
If its used continously, the power should not exceed 2400-2800W, then it should be in the safe range.
That depends on which kind of fuse and powerlines are used. ordinary power lines and fuses are built for 16A today, some older are for 10A. (our house is a newbuilt one though)
Some buildings have thicker power lines, and use 25A Fuses, which equals in somewhat 5700W maximum, and probably around 4500-5000W continous draw. ;)

thanks for the warning tho, in the first moment i was shocked, when i calculated that i should already draw more than 2200W max,from 2 sockets of the same circuit, when every PSU is on its peak use :eek:

(which luckily no one of them is till now, but the 600w OCZ in my main rig maybe will be soon ;))
