[SPONSORED] Duality92's Folding Farm, 600k / 5000k PPD (12% to goal) - Page 4

This is what I have so far planned out for a rack. If I'd get 212's on each motherboard.

This is what I have planned out so far (first image below), I would use this type of shelving. I'd cut the legs to adjust the height.

The only problem with this, is that it's going to waste some space because it's 36" wide and only like 30" is usable to mount things. Also, I'd mount the hard drives between the motherboards.

Keep in mind, these are almost to scale to 1mm = 1 pixel. I drew 212's on these because I'm trying to get Cooler Master on board for cooling, but if I don't, the spacing for the motherboard racks will be 140mm.



edit : Also, original picture is scaled 1 pixel = 1mm

I wonder what PPD that'd net in folding... what's your power consumption in total?

Looks to be good so far.

If going this method, getting dual socket boards is a must. You would just be wasting money on more expensive 775 boards.


Also don't even use tower coolers, just use stock Intel heatsinks. Not like you are going to overclock.

Looks to be good so far.

If we take 150k per card, 5 card per system, 20 systems, that's 15 million ppd.

Thanks.

Guessing those are 7950's, so ~115,000 PPD/card.

The problem I have with 771 motherboards right now is the cooler hole spacing. I can't find any motherboard with cooler or any processors either, that means they would end up more expensive than what I can get 775s.

At the moment, I am trying to get 775 motherboard that are moddable to 771.

Or...you could eliminate the shelving altogether if you "hang" the boards on some cheap flat bar (or angle) like I do in this Helmer replacement "drawer"/case:





In your situation, it would probably be best to orient the flat bars vertically and add some more bars to mount the PSUs.

No way that 2P 771 boards are more expensive than 775 and/or 1366. Same thing applies to 771 Xeons. 2P 771 is definitely the best bang for the buck. CPU coolers shouldn't be a problem either, especially purchased in bulk. The "Make an Offer" option on eBay is your friend. wink.gif

That filing case is straightforward, clean, and plain (in a good way); super badass! Might have to pick one up sometime.thumb.gif

Let's say I go the 2p, 771 route and I use this setup (below), It would be a 48 quad core processing power house. Let's say I can do 10k ppd with NaCl on each processor, that's 480000 (720k ppd if 15k per processor) ppd total. That's also 4800 watts estimate.
