No gaming. Video cards are for crunching moowrapper!

It looks like the OEM w7 server is $52, not too bad! Though I'd never run a dedicated f@h rig on anything but linux wink.gif

Dedicated like a 4p but an old computer can serve a few purposes. I have a C2D that runs a GPU and also serves as my file server

You're still limited to at most 2 physical cpu sockets with windows home server.

This is the least you’d need of the windows sever OS http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832116851

But like I said in my first post...LINUX is free wink.gif

Ya if WHS limits you to number of CPUs definitely go linux. A good distro can do as good or better then windows

Thanks for any help smile.gif

I meant to switch my quad 6128 system over to BOINC this morning but forgot to... and now I have another large bigadv unit running for the next 2 days...
I would really like to see how it performs in BOINC compared to my quad and hex i7s... I guess the same as having 32 single core computers, or just multiply the results of 1 single core computer @ 2Ghz by 32. Too bad I forget how my 2Ghz AMD single core laptop performed...

From the half day that I did run it, I can say it is quite epic to see 32 tasks crunching at the same time tongue.gif



If you follow derickwm's guide, putting the 4p rig together will be no problem.

a bigadv WU takes 2 days to complete? That seems a little long or have they introduced new ones? From what I have seen most of the 4p setups can go through them in less then 15 hours

With 4 6128's which is what he has, most people get roughly 30 minute tpf for a 6904 which puts completion time slightly more than 2 days.

Hmm did not know they were that high with those cores. Although I think you should let it finish biggrin.gif

Yes, of course I will let it finish... for 531,000 points. I have a 32 minute TPF on the 6904, but hopefully soon I will be overclocking for much better results.
I had wanted to have it running today for the BGB going on - similar to a foldathon
