The waiting is killing me. Got my first 2p Intel ASUS board yesterday. The 4 MC processors showed up today, but no 4p/2p board. Got my RAM and my heatsinks today. The Intel processors are going to show up tomorrow. But the power supply won't be here until Friday. Not 100% sure where the other 2P intel board is in the process or the 2P AMD board is. The 4P board won't get here until after Xmas I am guessing.

Waiting sucks!

I think I'll be going for the 2P ASUS board and throw 2 16C IL on it. even if it's not as good as it's last gen. I'll still have 32 cores to essentially run a vast amount of VM's and F@H.

Yeah that's what I'm doing. You can always upgrade to 4p later if you wish too.

If you watch newegg for a while you may find a nice open box deal. I got my 2p Tyan board for $180.

But I like this board. lol.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131643
And me and AMD_SLI_GURU were talking about TYAN and how we'd prefer going to SuperMicro instead of TYAN.

This guy has one.
http://www.overclock.net/t/945009/carabooses-16-core-wonder-more-benchmarks
But 2x8core.

Take a look at this thread. MC might be better than going with IL.

What I meant was, you might find an open box of the Asus that you want, not that you should get the one I got.....

But also consider this: if you'll pay $500 for a 2p board, you'd be better off saving another $200 and getting the 4p Supermicro board hoth17 got.

I'm running that board now in a dual Magny Cours 6136 Folder. It's a rock solid board. The north bride gets a little hot, though. I installed a little 50mm fan on it that I had in the parts bin.

That's good advice. You could always start your 4P motherboard with two processors, and two more later as money becomes available. If you are hot to trot, and really want to go 2P now - can't blame you - then see if you can find a used 2P G34 board.

I've had the itch to build a new rig lately and this thread definitely has my attention. I have no experience with multi-proc systems so it sounds like a fun challenge thumb.gif

Couple of questions:

How would the 6234 or 6238 perform? Using only Newegg as a reference they are both less than half the cost of the 6174. I have no patience for watching auctions so retail new is the way to go for me and $1k+ is a definite turn-off.


What sort of PSU requirements am I looking at? Are we talking a server specific PSU or just the same type I've always bought? Also how much power? 500? 750?


Based on hoth17's pics I think I already know the answer but what sort of memory? Looks like some 4 x X kits of regular G.Skill to me. Would actual server memory (the buffered and ECC sort) be a justifiable purchase?


Thanks folks. Hopefully I'll make up my mind to do this soon.

Ideally you want 4 sticks per cpu. These sticks need to be 1.5v. You will not be able to go above 1333 so, you should be looking for 1.5v 1333 cl 7

cl8 works but not as good. This ram doesn't have to be ECC, typical desktop ram works just fine.

As far as motherboards go, you can get this one.

You can mod the 212+ bracket (haven't added this mod on OCN yet), but the 212+s work, you should also look at gsa's heatsink info.
