Budget BOINC Server Club - Page 33

post #321 of 539
Got Win 7 installed on the 580. Now I can't find ethernet drivers. I've tried everything on the HP website, but they all pop up with "incompatible OS" (Win 7 not listed, just server editions). mad.gif

My new Far From Budget Boincer. It's a crappy pic, the cables look yellow instead of orange in the pic....and it isn't finished...still need case lighting, tempered glass window and a decent shade of orange for the coolant. I couldn't get the right shade of orange on my first attempt. had to drain the loop and start over.

The important stuff

i7-6800K (12 Threads of goodness)
Asus x99a/3.1usb (which I'm not liking so far)
32GB HyperX Predator DDR4-3000
OS: Funtoo Linux (Gentoo based from the original author of Gentoo)




Now I can work on the real budget boincer. Which I'll probably water cool too since I have enough parts laying around.

Looks good! Amazing how "budget" gets lost somewhere in putting these together. My DL580 started out at a little over $400 and has now approached the $1500 mark. Plus I ended up with three more.....

(I moved my answer from the other thread)

You are aware that win7 will only see 2 cpu's right? I think that server has a variant of the boradcom nic. You can try and d/l drivers from there.

Regarding the mint issue, are you trying to use fglrx, AMDGPU or AMDGPU-PRO? (for the ati cards)

I was hoping the two CPU bit was just a glitch. Will it run all four for BOINC?

And I've tried every Broadcomm driver I can find. Non have worked.

I was trying to install version 15.12. I think it's fglrx, as that was in the definition.

2 cpu is the 'limit" in the consumer OSes.

7990 are supported by the newer AMD driver (I think) I would for sure try those (AMDGPU or PRO)

I just found that. I've now decided to try Mint 18 on the SATA drive instead of using Smart Array. Windows didn't like it, so I have reason to think it may be an issue with Linux. I'm also not going to run update/upgrade after installation. I'll try installing drivers first. At least Mint gives me internet.

I hope it goes well. I have a 480 on order that I want to use with Zorin for an experiment, but I also want it to boinc.

Zorin 9 Lite looks interesting. May have to try it out!

I hear you on such! I've gone from a "oh hey, $5-600 CAD including power supplies" ideas to "eh, screw it, let's make this a full blown all Watercool Heatkiller watercooled (with external MO-RA3 420 so I can pump the heat outside in the summer, and keep it indoors in the winter), custom case, 2x 2P board, and a single (with eventual future of dual if I can get power figured out) RX 480 on each side. Oh, and two satellite cases designed similarly containing a variety of ODroid C2's, ODroid XU4's, maybe the Raspberry Pi 3's, and maybe some sort of x86 derivative product like the UDOO x86).... .....And quite likely with the satellites watercooled too ^_^;;;;

Then again, hubby said I'm allowed "one" rig for BOINC, but I'm allowed to cram as many items from the bucket list as I want into it. He finds it cute that I'm trying to literally cram two servers, 8+ single board computers (ideally, I'd like to run at least 5x ODroid C2's, 5x ODroid XU4's, with an option for x86 stuff as well but given that I'll already have 64 threads of Xeons I can't complain tongue.gif ....Would be awesome to run eight of each, but then we truly are getting to the completely bonkers overkill since just five of each comes out to $1,068.50 USD before shipping, which for those of you following my silly math is the cost of another two Natex bundles, which I wouldn't doubt would outperform the ODroids! .... ...I just want cute lil devices to tinker with, if that makes any sense, plus of course the Android work units too), and three water cooling loops all into "one" case.... Oh, and having it set up that pretty much every single setup is independent of the other, so if I take one down for maintenance the rest keep going.

Yeah, I'm nuts.
