Not sure what your budget is...but with the v3 processors you might want to get the retail versions due to the microcode bug (I gained 17% free performance on my 2683's with it and around 12% with the 2696's)

I *think* that board is capable of the hacked bios (my asrock EP2C612 WS had zero problems with the hack and I think they have they same OC features)

Just something to consider. thinking.gif

Info from this thread

Basically the hack runs all threads at full turbo as long as cooling is sufficient.

...I had a rush of blood to the head and bought an actual server...

Sun SunFire X4140 Server
8GB RAM
2X AMD QUAD CORE OPTERON 2384 @ 2.7GHZ
2 x 146GB SAS Drives
2 x PSU

It's due to arrive on Wednesday or Thursday and I'm going to try to install Ubuntu Server on it and use it as an email server that crunches BOINC - it's probably not going to be super quick but it can whirr away in a corner all day. I've never used Linux before but the ubuntu tutorials are exceptionally well written...I guess my question is whether you think there's enough RAM there? I'd probably not be able to do the big NFS sieve work units with only 1GB RAM per core, but am I going to hit a wall with only 8GB doing other CPU work units?

yes 8gb will be enough for 8 cores. from the recent NFS challenge I only have 27 gig working in one of my servers which is 32 cores. worked fine and didn't crash. seeing as you are from the uk I assume this is from that recycling centre place in Runcorn? I know a lad with 50+ servers in his shed from there, mostly dual cpu xeons.

My x99 system died the other day. I went to bed sunday night while it was crunching drug discovery, when I woke up in the morning the system was down. It won't power back up. It tries, the LED's light and the fans spin for a half second then it shuts off. It continues in a loop until I flip the switch on the back of the power supply. I tried another power supply and it still doesn't boot so I'm guessing its the motherboard. I thought about going to Microcenter and getting a new motherboard...but then I was thinking this gives me an excuse to build a Ryzen system.....all the cool kids are doing it. biggrin.gif

Threadripper is just around the corner... I know I'm tempted.

Yea, the 1900X seems like a decent entery into the TR4 platform at $550ish. The 1950X seems like a monster, just too rich for me right now. I think I will probably wait for Gen 2 of Ryzen anyhow.

It's tempting me, but on the flipside a number of other things have tried to pull my attention too.

I finally got my X4140 up and running and crunching some Primegrid work units. The thing is bloody huge!
I've never used Linux before so maybe jumping straight in with the command line wasn't the best idea, but never mind.

And I appreciated the tutorial for setting up BOINC manager to look after a computer remotely smile.gif

Cool you'll have to tell us how it does!
