That is more like it. There is a lot of good stuff out there. If you aren't in a hurry you can find good deals.

I literally lucked into this. Saw it at the bottom of a listing. The same company had the CPU's and they cut me a package deal. Plus I retain the X7550's. Also found out a server PSU is set up entirely different from a "normal" one. That's why it's called a Redundant PSU. It will take the 1200w ones to power this beast, but with relatively low power draw from the wall. Ordered to "Y" cables to bring it down to two plugs.

Now all I gotta' do is figure out how to watercool it.....smile.gif

LoL, yeah the servers tend to have redundant power supplies.

The one at the unit I do drill at once a month has redundant on UPS too.
The higher class one has redundancy on everything even the SANs. tongue.gif Like no joke, loading that thing with all its HDDs takes a bit since it got like over 30+ of them.

On other note, darn you I went to their store and I see so many goodies.

Especially this one. Mmmmm.

I may need your assistance on getting this beast up and running. Hopefully I won't have any issues. My main concern is whether it will run Linux Mint.

Try Ubuntu server then add cinnamon to it for GUI?

Glad to make your acquaintance, Sir!

I've been searching and researching. Not a lot about using one these for the purpose I intend. And being a Linux noob doesn't help. I'll get it set up and then just see what will work and what won't. My 2P loaded Mint without any issues.

If it's any consolation the market here in Canada is pretty bad as well. While we share a border with the United States, it's usually about the same cost to ship something up here as it would be for it to go to half of Europe of Asia for some strange reason, and that's assuming they're even willing to ship it across a border...

@4thKor: Please report back how much power that system draws. I used the HP Power advisor and it came down to almost 800 Watts. That definitely puts it out if range for me although I am tempted and found a pretty good deal.

@4thKor: My only suggestion would be to get IPMI working on it first thing. Even if the bios is hung, you can get into IPMI.

I had a bad bios flash on my AMD 4P and I did not have IPMI setup. The system was completely unresponsive and I could not even initiate the emergency flash. I ended up flashing the bios on the board from another computer and somehow it worked.

For my AMD 4P I use ubuntu server headless, putty for a terminal and IPMI for turning things on, hard resets, and getting into the bios.

A Headless install of tightvncserver worked out of the box for me for remote desktop access. It's the server for TightVNC.

I'd also learn you apt commands. apt-get and apt-cache are my two most used.
