Yup, that's definitely Skynet Jr right there :)

Where's a good old peasant mob with torches and pitchforks when you need one?

Nice pics of the monster should heat the home with that much power

He is on the wrong part of the planet to need much in the way of home heating . . .

South of the tropics it gets miserably cold in Winter.
It's bad enough up here in the north where i live. It has been know to get down to 14°c, usually it's around 18°c. Although anything below 24°c is way too cold.

"The Monster" is a beaut! I've got a gt430 PCI card waiting to live its new life in a PCI-PCI-e adapter thanks to Aussie information. It is currently being pushed by my old P4 which has gone from 725 to a current 1850 RAC however accurate that number is. Temperature here in the US starts at 15 centigrade, although most don't know that unless they are pilots. How do you get to Darwin? Fly to Perth, get plenty of gas, and turn left at Ayers rock? Years ago my British/Aussie friends used to joke about how they hadn't had a fag in months.

I've never seen the Southern sky... the Southern Cross, the Magellanic clouds or alpha Centauri, but that's ancient astronomy now. I can rent time remotely on telescopes, but it's not the same as being there.

Today here in the New England Highlands part of Australia it started out at 0.5C and peaked at 19C, a bit better than the other day that started at a frosty -1.5C and topped out at midday, a very wet and windy 14C.

That depends on the brand and model of the fan. ;)

It could be worse, areas of the southern highlands plus areas of Tasmania today had lows of around -2C or so and topped out at 3-5C.

Actually you turn left about 250kM East of Ayers Rock :-)

The performance of your GT430 disappoints me. I was thinking of getting a Zoteck pci gt430 for my old P4, but I was expecting almost double the RAC you are getting. Thanks for the heads up.

I haven't tuned for it yet. I just stuck it in the box and let it go. As a 55$ add-on I'm quite happy with it and there are not a whole lot of PCI cards available anymore. I actually didn't get it for crunching. I got it for programming.

... I decided to use an E7200 C2D processor. 4 GB of 1200MHz DDR2 RAM and an old XP Home installation ...

...The only teething problem was, due to the amount of memory allocated to the GPU's. The total amount available for the OS was barely a Gig.

...The next plan is to install Linux on it and make it a REAL beast.

T.A.

I'm just hoping that your next OS would be x64 in which case 'The Monster' should see more than barely a gig. ;-)

I have a Mageia x64 install disk ready to go. The memory was one of the reasons for wanting to put Linux on it. Being able to access the extra 800MB would be handy :-)

Leave Doug alone! He went through a lot of trouble getting his GPU up and running in the name of our project. :-)

"His name is Robert Paulson!"

That "monster" is a thing of beauty. Reminds me more of what people were doing back in the classic days. Where you would see photos of stacks of bare motherboards all setup for crunching. Being separated by the skin of their fiberglass.

In Chicago, that's a typical winter day. 19C (which I roughly converted in my head to about 41-42F) is a pleasantly mid day. Often we go days at a time without getting above freezing. Back in 1985ish, I was out on the night we set our all time record low of -27F. I left a friend's house at about 1 a.m., backed my car out of his driveway, put it in drive, and had to sit in the street for five minutes while the transmission fluid warmed up enough to move the car forward.

It will not be surprising if we get to 100F a few days this summer, with a dewpoint around 73F just to make it really miserable.

Hey Grant.

I am in Shoalwater south of Perth, cold and miserable here too, but in my converted cellar the crunchers keep me toasty warm, adding another later this week, just shopping for a cheapish gpu and hoping not to break the bank with the power bill lol.
