    I may have just set in motion adding 24 more dedicated crunching threads to my farm... Once I have everything in place I'll post specs and pics.:pimp:

    Phew, glad it wasn't just me. Checked on one of my cruncher PC's and saw it has many tasks ready to report and was only working on 2 tasks.

    Lol! :laugh:

    I will say some components arrived today for my new crunching build:

    Dell PowerEdge R610 (barebones refurb)
    Matched Pair of Xeon x5675 @ 3.06 GHz (total 12c/24t)
    RAID card

    Still awaiting:
    3 x Seagate 73 GB 10k server drives
    Trays for drives
    Set of 32 GB DDR3 Memory

    Unlike my other R610 that I have running Xen server, I'm just going to throw Windows Server 2016 on this one. Purely for crunching. I'm going to need a server rack in my basement now!

    You probably only need one of those drives if you're just going to run boinc. Don't the 10k's eat a lot of electricity and generate a lot of heat?

    A laptop drive will do just fine.

    +1 WCG output really isn't affected by what drive you're running. That said, extended running on an SSD might to increase its chance of failure...

    Whoops, I spoke too soon! My first server came with 10k drives, but I just reviewed the order and see they are regular 7200 RPM SAS drives for this one. My bad! Probably could have gotten away with one, but meh.

    Wow, that;s awesome. Just checked and I have a whole lot of SCC sprinkled in with MCM since that's what was running from before. Very happy to see SCC back and going strong. :)

    Is it going to be just a cruncher or your main PC?

    I had at first a asRock X370 Taichi, very solid board. But my experience was short lived by a serious of problems. I have one sitting here now I just got back from Newegg, brand new, probably going to sell. But I am not taking credit away, it's one of the most, if not the most solid board out there now. I currently have the ASUS Crosshair VI, and maybe I'm biased towards ASUS, but I love it. It's pricier, but it has some nice features.

    Had a lot of issue with the last ASRock board (990FX extreme 4) so staying away from them. Don't like gigabyte boards so only choices are MSI and ASUS.
    Thinking of getting back on-board with ASUS, had a lot of rock solid builds with them.

    would get one of below listed boards, which ever is available.
    1. Asus ROG Strix B350-F
    2. ASUS Prime B350-Plus
    3. ASUS PRIME X370-PRO

    Wife and I are expecting a baby in October and also moving to my new apartment, so trying to be more responsible with money.

    Wow, congrats to you and the wife! Yes, I have had a lot of recent success with But Asus which is why I decided to switch. I have heard that the B350 boards have had some issues keeping the VRM's cool, so I'd look into that. I think any ASUS board you get will be a good choice.

    Just remoted into rig 3 and found it at the welcome screen sitting there doing. I think this has happened before to this same pc, so I need to look into it when I get time, which I doubt will be any time soon. This pc is the one that had always proved aggravating with constant issues, one way or a other... :rolleyes:
