Wondering if getting a new dual xeon setup would be worth it for about 800-1000$ cad.


Or just wait for zen?

Check out Natex combos for Xeon Motherboard/CPU/memory packages. It can be had for quite a bit less than $800. Add PSU (mine pulls less than 350W with an EVGA G2) and storage.

Last I checked, the 128GB of RAM combo would cost around $740 CAD or so with shipping for a single board, and that's before any taxes being applied by whoever it's shipped through. If a courier, you're at a 95% chance or so, with Canada Post you're at a 50% chance, but I recall the courier shipping being cheaper, and one doesn't have to worry about the looming strike. Yeouch, 14.975% tax in QC?

I've never visited this natex site before... It is giving me bad ideas now.
You have the Dual E5-2670 system with 64GB of memory for only $445 USD. But in addition to needing your own hard drive, you have to provide your own power, case, and cooling...

Then you have this:
http://www.natex.us/Quanta-QSSC-2ML-10-Unit-Server-Cluster-32GB-p/quanta10-32gb.htm
That is 10 Dual E5-2670 systems, or a total of 160 cores/320 threads. Only $3600 before shipping, it comes out to $360 per system; of course you still have to provide your own hard drives, but everything else is included.
If you had a basement and some electric to spare, this would be great! rolleyes.gif

yea 15% tax + import fee.


400-450$ For a brand new asrock mobo.

110$ per cpu on ebay + import fee and possible tax. Did not have import last time i got a cpu from china. So i may be lucky


220$ for 32gb 1600mhz cl7 4x8gb Maybe i would be better with 8x4gb or 64gb 8x8


Would probably be in december that im gonna look for this. Not sure yet i need to get a alienware or msi 15" gaming laptop before.

I picked up the 128gb version with the Intel CPUs with working VT. I don't need 128gb but I might split it between it and another 2P later. I chose Natex setup over those Supermicro $35 ebay boards as there are multiple PCI-E slots to put in more GPUs down the road if I want.

The combo plus Evo 212s, 256gb SSD and an EVGA G2 PSU is what I have setup. It's still on some cardboard boxes as a 'case'.

I've never looked at the racks. Tempting but for that much one might want to look towards used 4P systems.

I'm leaning towards the 128GB bundle for similar reasons - it's only $50 USD more, not to mention one shouldn't run out of memory even in rather memory intensive projects like VDWNumbers or other ones that are known for taking 1.5-2GB per thread (wcg's clean energy project 2 comes to mind, even if there isn't much work for it). I also like the look of all the slots bring filled, but that's just me and my aesthetic leaning talking again ^_^
