Wow, looks pretty neat, also looks like it could run pretty hot, what kind of temperatures are you seeing? (Like the fan held down with twist-ties!)

Hi Dave,

here is a V8-Xeon cpuz
and here are the actual core temps
Roomtemperature is 25 celsius.
The sensor on the FB-DIMM memory shows 49 celsius.
This is with empty load, no overclocking, no crunching.
The 12cm-fans of the cpus running very slowly, there is a additional 12cm fan at the backside too. All PWM powered automatic from the board. The two 20cm big fans on the case are running with lowest speed.
I can switch of these two and regulate the speed from outside.
I hoping the server will run cool under full load too.

V8-Xeon-Server is now under full load
it crunches at same time 8wus
see the temp under full load, this looks moderate cool.
The sensor on the FB-Dimms show now 71 celsius.
Now runs the burn in test.
there you can see the machine and the first results.
happy crunching

Congratulations on getting that beast put together and on line. You did a wonderful job on the assembly.

It is truly awesome!

What's that?

A 200MMX upgrade straight up to a 1kW Skulltrail?... !

OK, quite an upgrade!

How well does that system do for such as folding@home for utilising the GPU?


Nice work!

Happy crunchin',

LOL, a Skulltrail doesn't do folding, it MAKES YOU do the folding ;D

Hi,
now after 24hours full load temperatures are moderate cool. Sensor of the FB-DIMM shows constant 68 celsius, cpu temps are 43 - 55 celsius.
Boinc shows round 4000 credit/24hours. Its a nice speedup, my P4 Northwood 2,6Ghz shows 400 credit/day, means 10x more.

Hi all,
Have found UEFI Boot must be enabled in the BIOS for IA64. After make the SATA-DVD as the first boot-device in Bios, Booting from the Vista Installation disk started, but after some dialogs my wireless mouse is not known to the system, the cursor is frozen...uuuhhhh.
Maybe there is a problem, because I am behind a CYBEX 4 port adapter for monitor, keyboard, mouse.
-------------------------------------------
I have still one monitor, keyboard, mouse for all my 4 machines, normally this works fine, but it looks like the installation of Vista has a problem with this.
Did anybody of you know something about this ?

If nothing helps I must connect monitor, mouse, keyboard direct onto the machine.

Heinz


I've seen reports over the last year that say they had problems installing Vista with some old KVM's. First thing I would try is to connect directly onto the machine, and see if the hang goes away.

I just recently had problems installing XP with a KVM.

I put a DVI graphics card in the machine, and was running it through a DVI-USB switch. XP ran through the text-mode install without problems, but stalled and rebooted every time it reached the graphics-mode part of the installation.

Once I disconnected the DVI cable, and put a spare monitor on the analog VGA port, I was able to complete the install without problems. Once I'd got it tuned up, and the graphics card drivers installed, I was able to go back to the switched DVI and it works perfectly.

I have had no problems with my Hawking CS168 8 port KVM since day one......it has simply worked flawlessly........nary a issue to report.....

Are You sure that's a 7 port KVM Mark? As I see 8 buttons in that image, As Amazon says(among others) that You have an 8 port KVM.

Yes indeedy....error in my original post.....it is indeed an 8 port switch....handles all 8 rigs on the farm....
You are correct, my eagle-eyed friend.

Switched over to the SSSE3x app now. So we will see if it is faster for this machine.

Hi Jason,
hoping end of the month my developer environment is working on the V8-Xeon then we can do what we allways have want....
and I'm sure we find a solution to communicate.....

SSSE3x
the FB-DIMM sensor shows constant 70C, Roomtemp 26C
and SSSE3x CPU temps against SSE4.1 CPU temps.
No big difference, so we can be happy with it.
