Only running two boxes. Thinking of adding one more to the farm though...

Running 5 rigs, one of which is down due to hardware malfunction. Apart from the number of computers being used for running boinc, I guess it will be interesting to see some snaps of the how these computers have been set up - something like a rack or a farm.

Before the GPU crunching began, I had lots of barebone systems crunching everywhere in my house. This site should give a good idea of how it would be.

I have 3 clusters.

Intel GPU cluster has 4 x i7's currently running
Nvidia GPU cluster has 5 x i7's currently off
Pi cluster has 3 x Raspberry Pi's currently running

None doing SETI work. Pics on the blog if people are interested.

2 rigs --

1) i7/950 crunching 24/7 -- (AP CPU & GPU primarily -- MB CPU & GPU when AP not available), Milkway GPU & Einstien CPU when Seti available.

2) i7/930 crunching 24/7 -- MB CPU & GPU only.

I have two rigs, both are Quad Core 2 and each have one GTX 670 running 3 tasks.

3 atm but I'm considering cutting that down to 2.

Cheers.

I did have 14 when CPU crunching only. Now because of power costs, just 5 all running GPU's. The current set up gives me 3 x the RAC that the 14 did.

Currently running 4, One major cruncher, one medium cruncher and 2 CPU only Linux boxes which are used elsewhere but follow the original BOINC ethic of donating spare clock cycles.

I have run up to 9 at once but running costs and cooling costs were drawing strange looks from "The Minister Of Finance" and when I got a query from the Authorities questioning why my electricity bill was so high (they thought I was growing things indoors) I thought it was time to cut back. :)

Actively running 26 on SETI@Home with PrimeGrid as their backup. With another 6 in reserve if I can get more of that green papery stuff that pays for things.
