Wow, that is some pretty good bargain hunting!

I'll say that is a great deal if it works! That mobo is usually over $300 easy...

It definitely works.  It was a backup board in a lab that upgraded to v3 Xeons. It never went into service, but it was tested and then put back in the box and on a shelf for future use.  :D

 

Luckily I made the deal 2 weeks ago when the boards were OOS and priced at $330 on NewEgg.  The board is now in stock at NewEgg, and the price has jumped up to $429. eek.gif

So I was wondering what the upper end would be for this club. XD I thing I might be close, up to $500-$550 with the 60GB ram upgrade I just did.

£70 for the RAM. One dead slot so 64 ->60GB Ram. Slower than the 16GB I had in but way, way more. God DDR2 is expensive and there multiple type.... redface.gif

It's your budget!  I want to see all the builds.  Whether its fits my budget or not. :thumb:

... ....Some days, I need to stop looking deeper when it comes to researching... I think I just found a way to justify the idea of a 2011-3 BOINC rig... At least one that will be BOINCing on a regular basis. Not 24/7, but if I take the plans for my audio/djing/racing/space/VR rig and combine them with a really sexy dual motherboard, saaaaaaay the Asus Z10PE-D8 WS, and then a pair of either the E5-2670v3, E5-2680v3, or E5-2690 v3's it could make for a rather interesting gaming and BOINC rig...

At a cost of easily $1000-1250 CAD more than 4x L5640 with 2x X8DTT-F-SG007 motherboards and, but at the same time... It's sexy, fits in a CaseLabs S8 (a case I've wanted since it was announced), and would fit a wide variety of needs.

I won't lie, it's tempting as both a 4x L5640 setup and 2x E5-2680v3 will on paper burn around the same amount of power, but I like the idea of spending a touch more on 2x ES E5-2690's and having a rig that's rather capable at BOINC as well as gaming ^_^;;;;

Probably wouldn't fit into the whole "budget server" idea though, not to mention would take longer to save up for.... But it would look rather sexy, especially in a CaseLabs S8 ^_^;;;;;;

EDIT: Couldn't resist showing it off... Yup, I actually do these kinds of research thingies... for fun. tongue.gif

It is easier to justify budget boincing with the more expensive v3 Xeons if you look at it as ppd per watt. The v3 Xeons are king in ppd per watt The only problem with v3 Xeons is that the affordable ones are the spicy ones and they sometimes have issues. If you realize that going in and test thoroughly then you are ahead of the game.

Given that most of theinexpensive ones are engineering sample versions, I figured I would run into a few problems.... But at the same time, it is a lot easier to justify as also being the audio, djing, folding, and vr gaming rig if I go that route....

Of course, I'm now already wondering if I could sneak a pair of gtx 950 or even 960's in there alongside the pair of gtx 980's the rig will be getting (technically free due to the fact that when this rig is built we'll have upgraded the graphics cards in the gaming rigs), or if two gtx 980's is already pushing it, let alone if they'd match in height tongue.gif

Definitely good to hear they're the ppd kings, because I really like the idea of building up most if not all of a dual Xeon rig for around the same cost as a 5960x plus an x99 soc champion... Of course, a 5960x can run 3000MHz ddr4 but there's just something to be said about the lovely sight of two processors,and of course all the work units two Xeons could crunch.

Here is a neat dual budget boincer. I don't have all the parts yet, but they are all on the way and it should be pretty neat.
It will be $544 for a total of 48 threads and 48 GB of memory so it should run most projects.

2x 8GB sata DOM SSD $60
12 x 4GB DDR3 1333 mem $100
2x X8DTT-F $100
2x X5660 $150
1x X5650 $60 (already have one)
1x Super Micro PDB-PT808-S20 Power distribution $35
1x Supermicro PWS-781-1S 780W PS $39

Ohhhhh man that's tempting >.>;;;;; Wonder if hubby would have an issue with me doing that PLUS the Xeon rig *laughs nervously* That distribution board plus the single larger power supply really does fix that issue of messy wiring and everything else, PLUS would actually get me a dedicated cruncher.
