You drinking again Matt?
Hey where the No Thanks button? What AMD not good enough anymore? And a Hethenistic Asus board on top of it ,Traitor just stab me in the heart with a spork
Hey guys, I have been rethinking my cruncher and since I have had issues with this AMD rig I may look into getting a simple I7 920 X58 setup. What are your thoughts on that? I seen HAT has a I7 920 for like 80$
6 cores/12 threads one cpu..... 'nuff said?
@ Brandon- PM freaksavior- AFIAK he's planning on selling his EVGA mATX X58 board and i7-920/930 very soon.
I am running a x58 920 setup and it does good. Land right between my 1090t and my fx 8350 at right around 5k ppd.
Yea I think it may just be the best option. I will see what I can come up with and if you are still interested in this CPU let me know
On my way home with some "special" cargo for [Ion]
Be back online later this afternoon.....
I've began crunching on my new Nexus 7 (the old one is still going as well until it is sold) and the results are looking really promising for this 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro. We'll see what it does over the next few days.
That is good to hear! I may look into giving my Galaxy S4 a shot at crunching, I guess at night while it sits all alone.
You can set the local client prefs to crunch only when plugged in, not in use, etc. Just beware of the temperature, one part of my new Nexus feels like it's about to burst into flames lol. You may not want to crunch on all the cores or all the time if your internal battery is located near the SoC.
Moved my Julia rig from a NZXT Source 210 into a Corsair 350D case*
* got a good deal from sneekypete on the case
Nice case, very easy to build in
Next step in the reconfiguring- fill the Source 210 back up. I have a GB 970A UD3/1055T setup waiting to go into it.
Mighty sexy looking build. I just watched a review on that case and it looked pretty great imo
And Sneeky always has the best deals, love buying from him
f-yeah! Had a 6 hour long thunderstorm. *flips table*
Looking forward to seeing what you do with the board and cpu
Do let us know--if it does OK then that might encourage me to buy one
If it's anything like his 980x it should be awesome
And the 'cargo' that Norton was speaking of
That looks like a fun toy...
Also, does anyone have experience with the service install of boinc. My phenom machine and 2500k are down till I move, but my 5800k and i3 530 are still up but are service installs. My ppd today was 729 telling me they arnt crunching.
That looks mighty fine,
Well, I do have my original Nexus 7 32GB for sale, and it gets 500+ PPD, and you are eligible for a distributed computing discount.
Still have plans to acquire some of my GTX 460s soon?
I'm joining you Matt
Oh that sounds gooooooooooood!
I've got the mother in law (and brother in law) sleeping here tonight, so I could really use some of that goodness, but since I started some medicine today, I don't think it would be wise to mix it
Yes, I run exclusively service installs. What are your questions?
Thanks! With the ~15% OC I'm hoping for 15-16k PPD or so. Not bad for $650 + s/h with the possibility of 16c CPUs later on.
Well, given what Anandtech said about the new one, I would rather go ahead and purchase the latest-and-greatest given the price
And yes, I'm thinking a couple GTX460s would nicely replace the 9 G92 cards I have.
I thought it went "one tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor".
Sweet baby jesus. Specs?
Nah, the floor is for suckers and college Jose Cuervo Especial drinkers . The real stuff let's you keep going, at the expense of poss in motor skills and vision and pretty much everything else (but no hangover)
Yeah, I'm waiting for some specs on it too, can't wait to see some more pics of that bad boy!
4x AMD Opteron 6128 (2GHz PhII X8, basically) @ 2.3
Supermicro Quad Socket G34 board (forget the exact model, but it supports the 16core CPUs too )
2x Noctua 120mm coolers + 2x Noctua 92mm coolers
32GB (16x2GB) G.SKILL RIPJAWs
Hopefully Norton will be able to get it up and running with more pictures for us soon
