That rig looks special ! How much does it weigh with all that equipment + cooling ?

Thanks ! On weight, it's too heavy to easily lift onto a scale

re. attachments...

...a new toy to play with... the portable AC ill get a custom shroud and direct cold air at the left side (air intake) for the 5x 360/60 rads.

...I have had the MSI X399 ProCarbon for a while now, and it tested well with the 2950X / 32GB combo...current 2950x would find a new home there and be used for more productivity-oriented / server tasks, while 'Orca...' would get either a current-gen 2970WX-2990WX, or a next gen TR...hopefully, there will be more info on next-gen TR roadmap soon...

...per attached, some tests with (Micron) VRAM variation and the Port Royal 1.1 benchmark with DLSS. This is before 'extra AC cooling' mentioned above, with follow-up tests soon.

DLSS is important down the line for some of our long-term business data, and Project Orca's multiple roles include that of a being a test-bed for those applications.

LOL, built_in gym ;-) How do you like the MSI X399 Creation board so far ? Any issues ?

...at least it doesn't smell like the typical gym Re. the MSI MEG Creation, it's been a flawless performer. I just pushed the quad-channel RAM (32GB) to 3600 MHz CR1 on this board and CPU. It works, though I did not try to go for the same 'tight' timings I'm running with the daily 3466 MHZ settings yet since this is a dual-purpose HEDT machine (work + play).

This build's CPU cooling was designed with a 32c / 12nm in mind. Depending on upcoming TR-3 / 7nm details and also other productivity needs, I might update this setup to a 7nm (32c ?) down the line and migrate the current 2950X permanently to the MSI X399 Pro Carbon for work. But so far, the 2950X is (far) more than enough and a ton of fun

...time to think about mounting the MSI PCIe 4x M.2 card that came with the X399 Creation motherboard, while the Core P5 case came with the PCIe extender cable included.


...the mobo has 3x M.2 onboard as well, and while I don't need all 7x M.2, it still would be a great addition. First, I have to check the manual though re. sequence of NVLink/ SLI plus an additional card...

...some careful cleaning around the PSU and GPUs as there's a lot of airflow going through the open case; fortunately, the two GPUs face downwards

...reran PortRoyal and Cinebench R15 + R20 after the latest OS patch madness; doesn't seem to have hurt performance any

...It's getting colder, so the Core P5 / Orca & R. project got a hat (not to say toque) It's a piece of clear acrylic I liberated from an older fridge which helps direct airflow while also acting as a bit of a dust cover

...getting tempted to run 4.3 Giggles instead of 4.25 as voltages seem ok, but much more serious stress-testing is needed.
