4p buildlog  

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Build is complete but had not gotten around to making the log.

So here is the quick photo build log...

Case is a Xigmatek Elysium, only thing big enough for the amount of rad space I wanted.
I used an old steel case for a solid motherboard backplate. I did this so I would not have to modify the case as much.
It is also easier to drill on sheet metal than on a case...
The added stability of having more mount points to the mobo is also helpful in the longevity of the system.

450

Tyan S8812 G34 4p mobo
You can see how I have offset the RX360 in the top to allow for the ram to be behind it.

450



A RS240 on the bottom.
Rasa blocks on the cpus

700

~7' Primochill 7/16 tubing with anti kink coil.
450


Fill er up... I cannot begin to tell you how much a pita this was...
700

Up and running, enzo ramsinks added to the vrms somewhere along the way...
450

oh so pretty...
450

did I mention it was bloody big? (those are 23" monitors for reference)
450

Serial tubing is soo not the way, so now 2 cpus/rad.... and that means I had to drain and refill ....yeah....
700


Ram upgrade...
450

lots of cas6 ram.... (don't ask how expensive that was...)
450

Ran like this for many moons... ~8mo 24/7 folding...
700

One of the 240s rad fans started acting up...so I got some GT-15s
576


sockets filled with AMD dodecas @3ghz

Performance?

480

In his screenshot it shows the processor being magny core AMD Opterons.

Soooo here's a link to it. In the screenshot he has 32 cores so he's using one of the 8 core variants.

How does a 4p build perform on a standard application? Can the programs take advantage of the cores? I am considering a 2p build but im not sure if it will give me a speed boost....
