ASUS X99 Sabertooth Owners Thread - Page 69

If you are using it for work... buy a CPU that is designed for that.... a XEON with ECC registered ram, then claim it as a work expense on your tax.

Why crunch these huge datasets..... when the output could be incorrect due to corruption in the pipeline.

Then chuck 256GB of ram into it and be done with it.

RAM is really a whole 'nother class of resource, compared even to the speediest SSD. Because you do not have a break on the level of abstraction. It would allow me to just make my script or application continue allocating memory up to over hundred gigabytes of it, just like that. Not to mention outpacing the fastest current SSD by a factor of 4 in that SSD's best case: an Intel 750's random access speeds pales laughably compared to frickin' system memory! There is a huge capability opened up by having so much memory addressible so instantly (hundred clock cycle level of latency). It's an entirely different class of storage. Sure I had access to 128/256GB RAM equipped servers at my job a while ago. But these were shared servers with potentially hundreds of people running jobs on them. To have my own workstation decked out like this at nominal (albeit $700) cost... incredible.

And Ramdisk is just a low-effort hack to map filesystem functionality on top of it so as to leverage code which doesn't know what to do with itself unless looking at a traditional filesystem.

Before I finish salivating over this stuff I'll mention that it would be super awesome if motherboard vendors got clever and made a mode where we can (say using the android mobo interface this board already has) upon boot partition a sub portion of our RAM to be interfaced to the computer as a disk. Then, the mobo can keep the RAM powered on as long as main power doesn't cut out, or maybe give us a port to put a Lithium battery into the case. biggrin.gif And various contingencies such as another HDD or SSD to help mirror the drive since it's still going to be volatile if your house loses power for some days.

This'd probably have some perf overhead associated with it, but who cares: This way we can easily transition our computer between a 128GB RAM monster or a 32GB RAM computer with a more or less persistent 96GB DRAM SSD. Only once surpassing 64GB of RAM installed does this sort of thing start to become compelling. But can you imagine what a persistent DRAM (DDR4, no less) SSD would be capable of?

Maybe we will see this? I've seen DDR and DDR2 DRAM SSD's in the past. they were not popular.

Hi guys, anyone can help me ? my vcore keeps jumping from 1.19 to 1.28 every time i run OCCT i dont know what else to do on bios already try LLC, adaptative mode, manual, C states off, any suggestions ?

Post your settings then. I'm pretty sure a lot can see the issue.

And you will be providing the funding, right?

Check post 541. I thought about going Xeon with X99E-WS. However it all comes down to how much I can afford. These side line project cannot use ANY public research funds.

Yeah it really depends a lot on what kind of work is being done. Plenty of examples of work that isn't quite up to true workstation or server workloads. Video encoding, video editing. That stuff's actually pretty much fine if you get some bit-flip errors in there, chances are it won't even be visible. And the stuff I'm doing which is Photogrammetry, it honestly doesn't matter if one particular run happens to fail one night, we'll just have a run be delayed by a few hours, it's still not worth the cost of *an entire new system* for this hardware to be server-grade (read: slow and expensive).

I am doing commercial genome analysis for, people with deep pocket and have concerns over their genomic information. Just bioinformatics, no fancy genetic editing involved so a errors will not harm anyone.


So far I have been crash free for a week and a half. Pretty amazing actually for the 2101 BIOS.

The reason i say use server grade hardware is because they are more capable of dealing with this sort of thing.

Running a 5820/5930k with 128gb of ram will be quite the hit on the ole IMC, and unless you have a pretty special one, i foresee alot of issues (although i'm quite happy to be told otherwise!). Not only that... if you want more than 64gb you will be stepping into uncharted terroritory, as Intel says:

"Max Memory Size (dependent on memory type) 64 GB"

On all of the i7 haswell range.
