    lol

    its nothing special

    more of a budget 4p set up :D

    the board is a Arima AMD Opteron Quad Core Socket F 3000 series-PITA of a board lol
    4x AMD Opteron 8354 2.2ghz quad core cpu's 75w each
    16x 1gb ram 667.... im having trouble with the ram as the seller from the USA has sent me mixed ram so ive only got 8gig working so far and ive been told im losing 20k ppd untill i get 16gig :eek:

    ppd of the setup should be around 75-80k

    it should pull around 350w of power where as the 3 quad core cpu's and 3 gpu i was running would be using more than double the power and i was getting around 35k ppd

    The board was £35 plus £40 shipping :eek: then £20 customs £95
    Ram was £45 plus £14 shipping then £17 customs lol £76
    Cpu's where only £15 each NEW!! £60
    4x cpu Brackets £12
    The 4 heatsinks where £30
    These boards are really funny with gpu's i know an ati x550 works i won one off ebay for £6
    HD i had one laying around £0 laptop HD will be best to save power :)
    PSU Corsair TX650w £35 off ebay best using a single rail psu with these or tho others have used duel rail
    2x 8 pin EPS adapters £6 you need a total of 3 8pin EPS and 1 6pin pci-e connectors

    sorry all that info is all jumbled together lol

    Total £320

    and i will nearly get all of that back by selling the other components i was folding with i.e the cpus and gpu etc :D

    heres a link of all the info found out about this board as there is really no info anywhere else

    hmm very tempted so PPD wise?

    Where did you get the CPU's from?

    Ahh Ebay has Opteron 2350 for £17 quid. Quad @ 2ghz not bad.

    Also what Client/mode is it in? SMP's?

    i got my cpu's off ebay £14.99 each free post but there all sold...

    the board also only likes 8347 to 8360 series opterons as far as i know

    Looks like my stats have fixed themselves. Looking forward to seeing some decent ppd now I have put all my folding machines on a single (chilled) loop and added a GTX 670 Cheesecake :)

    Yeah you've now appeared as a threat to me since I reduced to 1 pc folding.


    Code:
    debs3759 	-33 	1,852,798 	-46,658 	08.19.12, 5pm / 1.3 Months
    kirk_hobson 	-223 	5,686,221 	-69,203 	10.01.12, 4am / 2.7 Months
    Slowlemon 	-118 	4,453,287 	-20,604 	02.12.13, 3am / 7.2 Months
    Realistically it will be less that 1.3 months as the average hasnt dropped down to my paltry 6k yet. :eyebrow:

    So tempting to start em up again. :)

    Reduced the o'c on the server from 4GHz to 3.8GHz and temps havent gone above 78°C, so will leave it running.

    Unfotunately this means I will no longer hit 100k+ ppd. :sigh:

    Oh well.
