A C2D cluster could theoretically produce some nice, nice PPD. I know Pande Group implemented clusters in the past for their own work, but not sure I've ever heard of a donor being able to run their own cluster.

771 Quad Xeons are cheaper, and you can find dual 771 boards on the low as well.

so let's say I'd run a bunch of dual 771's with about 2 gigs of ram each, how much would i setup cost me? I'll most likely be getting a bunch of Antec VP450 to power one rig.

Nothing yet, it all depends what I can get my hands on at the moment being because most likely I will not be buying all of them at the same time.

http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1313.TR7.TRC1.A0.H0.Xdual+771.TRS0&_nkw=dual+771&ghostText=&_sacat=0

As you can see, they are pretty cheap.

And you can get Xeon X5450's for around $30 a pop too. Those are 3ghz chips.


So 30-50 per board, around 30 per chip, Used ECC DDR2 should be cheap. And you could always use cheaper CPU's as well, the X5450 is just a better one (equal to a Q9650).



I honestly don't know a platform that will give you more CPU power for less $$.

If you're going to go a kind of CPU cluster route, essentially impossible to beat the value of 2P Xeon 771's that DzillaXx brought up. Still, I'd estimate that they'd "only" output ~20k PPD per 2P, or roughly what I can get on my mildly overclocked 8350. That's more of a testament to the newfound impunity of CPU folding, rather than an indictment of the 771 Xeon's compute power. Anyway, run the rigs on Linux, throw in a GTX 960 (970 if you can), and combined, each box would be outputting almost 200k PPD. Not horrible for an almost 10 year old 2P platform running a vanilla mid-range GPU, but certainly not mind blowing. Total system power consumption would be ~350W.

With the 760, my budget immediately explodes. Don't forget my primary goal is to heat a part of my basement, not ppd.

Here's the layout I have planned to save space. The picture illustrates the motherboards at an angle of approximately 20°. The view is facing the Sata ports, so this would be the back view. Intake would be taken care of with a bunch of bitfenix 230mm fans (plan to date). The square on top of the motherboard represents the space taken by the heatsink.

Essentially the angle will be determined by the CPU cooler. The wider the CPU cooler, the lower the angle will be. I thought of this way to save space.

Things I will need to consider:
-fitting a PSU for each motherboard
-I/O ports easily accessible
-equal airflow to all CPU coolers

I think I'm going to be staying on single processor boards.

How big is the space you are planning on heating? Doing a little math, and taking some average BTU/ft^2 heating requirements, you might be needing a lot more power than you think. A 400 square foot room, about a 20x20foot living room, needs about 24,000BTUs (7000 watts) to raise the room temp 50°F over outside temperatures with average insulation.
