i7 990x Workstation build proposal - Page 3

post #21 of 37
wouldnt those SSD crap out before a year with the amount of data your working with tho?

and depending on how long your sim takes i would say the extra 2-3% is well worth your time if the sim crashes due to a error and waste all that time. And overclocking it with out HT would prob net you a bigger Oc if temp is a problem I would suspect

To be honest ssd's crapping out is a bit of a concern, another reason why I want to move to raid arrays with some redundancy. If they die without losing data that's ok. The first work build used the x25-e's mainly because their lifetime was so long.

One thing I could do is a 2xSSD on the ICH10R as RAID1 for the OS + Swap, then development could go on 4xSSD in RAID10 on a HW raid card. I wouldn't need trim, because I can easily move the data to the slow backup array then do a full erase on the development array overnight and move it back again all overnight while I'm sleeping.

One thing I need to google is whether redhat's trim support will extend to a raid array. It's only supported in ext4, but if the hw raid array is formatted as ext4, does it matter that it's an array rather than a single drive?

As for ECC, the "shortest long" thing I run is 30 minutes, but I run a lot of them, the longest thing I run takes about 4 hours, but I run it rarely. Tool crashes normally happen about once a week, and I can't remember the last time it happened during a long run, normally it's something like using the menu bar and it produces a segmentation fault.

Anyone had any luck running the ECC memory much faster than the standard 1333? Presumeably I'd need to get some kind of heatsink on them.

sooo i finished my 990x build and all was fine untill the mem banks kicked the bucket rma'd the board today. hopefully get it back soon so i can finish.:

maybe when im done with my build we can compare benchmarks.

for harddrives im using 4 2tb drives in raid 5 , and 4 SSD 128GB in raid 5 aswell.
im trying to find the right controller card but there so expensive. the on board sas controller is awesome on the p6t7 ws sc but not nearly stable enough for a raid 5x5..

my video card setup is pretty simple and power efficent.
2 x 5870
1x 5970 so im getting quadfire from 3 cards. using 1000 watt silverstone ps

im looking for a 2.1 bridge.. if anyone has one ill buy it off of them.

im also looking into that 500gb harrdrive that seagate makes thats is built by the same proprietor that makes nf200 chips supposed to be ubbber fast.. model ends in 320as.. ill buy those aswell.

You should get a high end video card, why use the cheapest video card for a killer setup? I suggest getting GTX 580, or wait for ATI's 69xx series. Forget getting ATI's 58xx series.

i know i can flash the firmwares of my 480gtx with 580 no problem.. but temps and power are a concern... the ati card runs 20'c cooler and use less power... my electric bill here in FL is already 450$

Yeah I wouldn't recommend the onboard controllers for raid 5. The benchmarks I saw suggested that for the same number of drives raid 5 was faster for read, but raid 10 was faster for write. With the read/write imbalance of the ssd's anyway I favored trying to boost the write.

If you want a cheap 8 way raid card then the LSI 9211-8i isn't a bad card, but certainly it won't compare the more expensive ones, particularly considering you're going raid 5 where you're going to need a lot of computational power for the parity.

Personally I'd do the ssds in raid 10 on the onboard controller (that way you get trim support), then the big drives on a 9260-4i if you really want raid 5 on those.

You mean this seagate drive?

I actually have one sitting around unused. I was going to put in a laptop eventually.

not that seagate drive similiar it ends in 320as not 620as. its a beast ill post a video of it when i get one.. i mean that thing is retarded fast in raid on any nvidia sata set. i mean i built this lil 630i xfx board with that drive and the harddrive benchmark was smoking the ssds and raptors on my other machines it was an f'ing crazzzy! it would load vista in 1 bar and skip the welcome screen.. like stupid fast... i have a 630i board just looking for the drive so i can replicate the build. the proc in that machine at the time was a e6850. that same nvidia card is being used is alot of x58 boards i think the ud9 might have it. im reading on it now.

Hey Leo Thx for the help with the "Craigslist" 990x. This is Joe's setup. I will tune his setup next week. I am giving back to him like this. I will post up my setup 2morrow.
Thx again.... PS ur mom makes some awesome espresso!!!

Awesome!!!! I just got mine in. Still tweaking. 4.4GHz looks stable so far with the following temps.

I might try to get Joe to get another board. The FTW3 is so hard to tune. VTT is so high for some reason. I got 4.4GHz with my core v at only 1.30
