[Build Log] 4p AMD Opteron 6174s & SuperMicro H8QGL-iF+ Folding Rig

post #1 of 136
Thread Starter 
This build log is done - for more info on how to construct your own 2P/4P rig please see my guide.

Hopefully this build log will help everyone who has been thinking about buying/building a 4P realize it's not a tough build and it's all pretty straightforward. thumb.gif

Anyway, as of yesterday everything has been ordered and is scheduled to be here by Thursday.

Specs:

Motherboard: SuperMicro H8QGL-iF+
CPUs: 4x AMD Opteron 6174s
PSU: Silverstone 1500W
SSD: Corsair Performance Pro 128GB
Ram: G.Skill CL7 1333Mhz 2GBx16
Cooling: 4x CM 212+

I am reusing the PSU & SSD from my previous build. Keep in mind any old HDD will do, an SSD is not needed by any means. I'm just using it because I mean why not?

The board has arrived! I ordered from Wiredzone on Friday and it arrived today wheee.gif

^I will upload a better picture later rolleyes.gif

Hopefully this build log will help encourage other people to start building these as well. They are not hard, and they aren't that expensive. 6174s can be bought on eBay for $450 compared to the $1239 Newegg charges.

Keep 'em coming!

Will the 212+ fit on those two lower sockets with no clearance issue, seeing as they are quite close to one another?

Not sure if you are going to run caseless but I bought some plastic standoffs that work great for that. It gives your board close to 1/4" gap from any surface. Just and idea and congrats on this awesome build.
