I'm not aware of the difference between CUDA 32,50 and so on and these SoG WU's .

Will I have to monitor my box to change my XML file around depending on what WU's I get?

When I have CUDA work I can run 2 WU's on my 980 faster that it would take to run 1 at a time.


But with these SoG WU's it's faster on my 980 to run them one at a time. I noticed for a few days I got all CUDA work now they all end with SoG

Back in 2010/11 my company was installing new systems, using the DL 360

Lost count of the number I installed.

I liked them, and would gladly take one, slight problem, it's called the Atlantic Ocean :-)


We have been using Cisco UCS since 2013 and it's amazing :)

I have earned a 25% badge but I am not sure what it means. I am a member of a team. Does this mean I am among the top 25% in daily credit for the team or for the entire SETI project?


Based on your current RAC from all other contributors I think.

On Monday day I can log into my PDU's and get a live reading. Im assuming roughly 4-500 for power

I had a Dell server with dual E5645's. Running 24 tasks at once the power draw was only ~300w.
Which is a bit more than my dual E5-2670 system running 32 tasks at once with a power draw of ~250w.

It is frustrating when perfectly good older hardware can't find a good use. I have a pretty nice dual X5470 system with 32GB & dual SAS controllers that I don't use because sitting at idle it draws ~200w.



I was just curious if anyone needed them. I guess I can try and donate the rest of them to another community college.

I see some of the servers Seti@Home is using and was just curious, does anyone need these? They are just sitting in my datacenter taking up space!

They all have roughly the same specs as this one. (https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=8221854)

I was able to donate 14 of these to a local community college for labs, but I still have 18 left.

4 built in nics with an additional 4 via network card
FC card with 2 SFP's already in them
x2 Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5645 @ 2.40GHz [Family 6 Model 44 Stepping 2]
100-128 gigs of ram

It feels like such a waste just having these sit on the floor, so I racked 4 of them for now and they are crunching away.


Where are they located?


They are located in Ohio

I would wait until the non-reference cards are available and that they have either 6+6 or a single 8 pin power connector.


Yeah I've heard about some power issues coming from these cards. Hopefully they smooth them out... Seems like a great bang for the buck for crunching.

I imagine once the servers are back up. It will be hectic for at least 3 days with all of the back logged WU's its going to be receiving/sending... 0.o

Hard to say, you'd have to measure it with a Kill-A-Watt.

As an estimate, use something in the 1/2 to 3/4 KWH ballpark, and calculate from there based on your utility rate.

In any event i7 Big Gun Battleships are like Ferrari's. If you have to ask how much it costs to run them, you can't afford it! ;-)

Well after dumping 2.7 Thousand dollars in parts into this Rig. I'm not worried about the electricity bill just curious.


LOL...

That's right kind of attitude then! :-)

Like I mentioned, the quickest and easiest way to know for sure is to pick up a 'Kill-A-Watt'.

They're around 25 bucks, and come in handy for measuring all kinds of appliances.

Cool ill have to stop by the store and pick one up!

One thing i have noticed i have 99% Cuda WU's. Actually right now i have no WU'S going on my CPU's all on my GPU'S and way to fix that?

Do you think this will cost me monthly. It has a 1600 Watt PSU. Going to have seti Running 24/7 As soon as i get my GPU'S Cooled down.
