Does this look like anything good? its the first thing that came up when I typed dual xeon motherboard rolleyes.gif

 

Go to the top of this very thread and you will find this very board.  I am running one with L5640s and am quite happy with it, runs about 210W wide open and crunches quite well.  You need a very specific power supply, or to rewire what ever you have to meet the pin outs.  A number of us are running this board

Sweet! what a coincidence, I didn't even realize that applaud.gif I noticed BritishBob has one quite like it but quad processors
I was gonna ask the question of what operating system you use, you wrote "Linux Lint" did you mean Mint? I looked up linux lint and didnt find much lachen.gif Ive never did any BOINC projects or anything and Im looking for something to get me started thumb.gif

Well I am running Ubuntu 16.04 on it now because it has a more recent version of BOINC than Linux M(L)int.  Which provides more granular control when running multiple projects.  I have only been using keyboards for about 40 years, excuse the typos, I'll get it sooner or later.

 

If you want to get started with BOINC load it on what ever you are running now, no need to buy a server to try it out and get used to the software.  Try a couple of popular projects, like World Community Grid for the CPU and maybe Collatz for the GPU.

No I obviously use a mouse, a pretty nice one too.  Just have a decade or so more experience with keyboards than mice.  Back in DOS and early Windows, much less CPM, PRIMOS, VMS, ASP, HASP, TRS-80 days we didn't have mice to slow us down.  You would be surprised all the keyboard shortcuts in Win 10 that remain from the dark ages...

I have been running Arch with i3 on my work laptop for the past 6 months, and there is no doubt that with a good window manager, I can fly around the OS much faster using only my keyboard.  Once a month or so, I like to give one of my co-workers a random, useful Windows shortcut, and he always reacts like it is some voodoo magic that shouldn't be possible. 

That being said, I do get lazy on Windows machines and fall back to using a mouse much more often.

As was already mentioned, I think it's what founded the budget server club! ^_^ And I so totally want at least one of them, but four sounds absolutely lovely - even if I'd have nowhere to put that many of them! tongue.gif

Got the PSU's for the G5. Didn't take any pics in my haste to see if the thing even runs. Loading Mint now though! wheee.gif

FINALLY got this thing up and running. I've learned a lot.

1)- Proliant servers are tanks. You can't mess one up to a point of no return. You may think so (I did). But it can be recovered.
2)- On board SATA connectors don't indicate anything the BIOS will actually support.
3)- SCSI drives are not needed. Standard 2 1/2 SATA drives work well, even in the storage bays ( at least with the DL580-G5).
4)- The BIOS(s) (there are three) are the most complicated and difficult to navigate I've ever encountered. You have to be able to speed read and move at the speed of light.
5)- Once up and running they are amazing pieces of equipment!

And last but not least they would make excellent boat anchors. biggrin.gif

A few pics:



I have four more rigs not pictured.

Thinking about getting a pair of E5-2670's and this Intel S2600G Motherboard. The Spec Sheet says it has 10 SATA ports, but I only see 2.

Can anyone recommend memory that works with this board and a power supply.
