I have no idea wtf you guys are talking about. I own a computer...I can operate it somewhat proficiently...but have no idea how it actually works...and I am quite happy not knowing how it actually works.

OK, this is what I got running:

A notebook i7 Quad folding SMP only.
A desktop with a AMD 1100 at 3.7ghz.
A dual AMD Opteron 4-core on SMP only Linux.
A server Xeon 2x E5620 on SMP only.
Miss Piggy dual Xeon X5650 on SMP only.

All four of my GPU cards crashed, so I took them offline. I need to rethink that.

I also need to build a new BigAdv machine. Miss Piggy will be going BigAdv after it does 20 or so SMP jobs, then overclock it, test SMP, then if AOK, go BigAdv again with it.

Once I get those stable, I'll add machines.

I'm not making good PPD yet. Username for all machines is new, McSwain.

I'm back to folding as well.

Need to get a normal power supply for my I7 system I was building for the truck......then it will really be on.

Trying to come up with a cheap solution to fold BigAdv jobs.

There are lots of 4 year old Opteron servers on the market cheap.

I've gotten one of them to go pretty fast with few dollars.

It has 4 Opteron 8386 quad core chips, 16gb of ram, and is running Linux. It was producing >50,000 points a day, but wasn't quite fast enough. Need 5% more horsepower.

Which 4P motherboard does it have? Arima, Tyan, Supermicro? How is the BIOS setup? Check these settings. You can drop some TPF.

- PowerNow set to Disabled
- NUMA/SRAT set to Enabled
- Node Interleaving set to Disabled
- Bank/channel interleaving set to Auto or Enabled
- Tyan boards - Ungang DCTs set to Always

My Supermicro H8QM3-2 running quad 8431s and the Asus KGPE-D16 with dual 6174s. The Asus pulls less wattage and is a little faster. I have a 4P Tyan S4985 that I could never get stable running the 6-core chips. It's sitting over in the corner. Guess I should buy some 8389s for it.

Thanks!

I've got a SM H8QME-2+ running right now with 8389's (2.9ghz) in it. The 89's are 75watt but have 2200 HT bus, unlike some of the other quad chips. They can be had for $20 each if you haggle.

On Ebay, there are some BIOS dealers that have chips for the Socket 7 mobos. I ordered some.

I bought a Tyan S4985, but can't get it to light even with a single chip. But it was $56.

Also got a Dell quad socket, brand new, for like $75. But it requires a proprietary power supply, it's not ATX or anything else I've seen.

I have a ASUS Dual G34, with Engineering Sample 16 cores x 2.3ghz in it. Not really impressed, and it costs far more than the Junk Bin quads do.

I'm still playing with it.

The Tyan was the BIOS chip, $30 on Ebay.
Now to populate it.
If anyone needs DDR2 registered ECC RAM let me know. I have surplus.

We did over 1,000,000 point in 24hrs. Congrats all!

What speed is that RAM and how much do you have? Guess I need to find 8 sticks, some eBay heatsinks, and a PSU to get my S4985 up and going again.

Probably just grab a few of these since I have quite a few Noctua fans laying around unless you found better cheaper alternatives for yours. My 8431s don't really put out that much heat so I doubt the 8389s will.

They are DDR2-667 Registered ECC 2GB.

8 sticks? PM your mailing address if you want some.

Heat sinks are a different issue. If you can find the adapter bars (cheap plastic bar that bolts to the factory hole) you can use any AMD Phenom/Athlon fan/heatsink.

All mine are passive server heatsinks.

Avoid the Dell units. They don't bolt up. They require a special mobo.

The 8389's run cool.

Note:

These are Engineering Sample 3.0ghz 83xx quads:

He wants too much. I did buy 4 to test.

EDIT: Confirmed 8391? Quad, but appear to be SE chips, which run hotter.

Ghetto Master 5000! Errr... 4985.

Junk Ebay parts thrown on a desk, started with a screwdriver. Drives are in the desk drawer.

Fans are $4 NewEgg specials just sitting on top of the heatsinks. 52 deg C when folding.
Burning it in on SMP and I will see if it folds Big.
