Sorry TicTac, I didn't notice your post before right now. Sorry!!! It was 5:30 am here in Denmark, and my eyes had a funny shape
DarkRyder, thank you for those kind words
I'm so very interested in hearing what you find, because I want to make the fastest possible cruncher. I've just ordered the 3 system for testing a VM on a CLI environment like Ubuntu Server. A guy from berkeley had a great idea. So this will have to be tested too. But we did it!! We are now crunching without X-server running.
Next step. To check if it works with multiple GPU's and headless. And then I will install Aerocool hardware based Fan control. Newer mobo's like to control fans for you. This is not very good, when you are having GPU's and CPU running at 100%.
I've got a script where CPU/GPU/HDD temperature will be monitored and if something gets hot you are warned with an email, at the same time as the warning from X-vision, the fan-controller from Aerocool warns you. If something gets too hot (a limit chosen by you) the shell script run by CRON e.g. once a minute, will shut the server down. This way, if you should have a hardware defect there's 2 watchdogs keeping an eye on the system. I'm working on a little peace of electronic too. This will include the fans into the script. So that you will be warned if a fan crashes.
The 2U case I use, has 4 heavy duty fans, and the 5 and last fan which X-vision controls, will be the CPU fan of course. An industrial 2U fan which keeps the CPU at a nice 49 degrees celsius. Sensors will be placed around in the case, on the CPU of course, THE GPU's RAM, and PSU!
Lets see how it goes.
Thanks for the interest you guys, it's not everywhere you get that kind of attention
