crazy idea! impossible? probably ='( - Page 2

post #11 of 18
As stated you'd be better off launching separate clients on each box.

You could that the HPC approach but over standard ethernet it's kind of crappy. If you invested in something like Infiniband then we'd be talking.

OP, your much better off running indivual clients on the machines. You'll get more PPD that way.

Oh well it was just an idea. Looks like some parts are going to go on sale lol

This. Sell the bits and get a 2500K rig and/or a few GTS450s - much better use of the components (and you get a nice new rig to play with ).

Nothing is impossible, even if you have to code it your self.

You wouldn't have to code it yourself - there are *nix distros around that would allow you to run the core across multiple hosts. The problem is the latency involved though, which would make performance terrible (each core would spend all its time waiting for the ethernet interconnect and very little time actually doing any processing). You would need access to the F@H core source and be able to design your own WUs to get it to work with any decent performance, and that isn't going to happen.

And all this means the best PPD you'd get would be from running the SMP client on each machine, rather than messing with running a single client across the cluster.

Sell a few and hold on to a few. With what you have left and the money you made build a few multi GPU folding rigs...

i already have a new rig to play with =) and i have an 1156 board as well so i might use the money i make from selling the parts to buy an i7 for it and use it strictly for folding
