The DT Farm

For those thinking of a farm - a taster :smiley:

For Juggy, Mortlake and before he moved project Step2000, before I start unplugging things, what you were up against :smiley:


Right to left.

  • Diskless server P4 1/8 @ 2.4Ghz water cooled
  • Asus A7N8X-X Win2003 Server Barton2500@200fsb
  • Socket 754 Newcastle2800 put there for race only
  • Errm - it’s a monitor :wink:
  • Shelves - All variants of A7N8X - top shelf both 2500 @ 200fsb, bottom left xp1700@200fsb and the other another bartonm2500


Easier left to right I think …

  • Full size case under the video box = P43.0Ghz Prescott HT Win2K
  • going to the cases…
  • P4 2.4Ghz
  • Three barton 3200’s I got off Mojo


This one is why I missed those on previous image…
Abit something or other and a XP2000 (Cheers Curly), behind that cd-rom drive is Barton2500 (purchased from Alta) and yet another ebuyer bargain basement A7N8X, the cd-rom is because the Abit thing won’t boot from lan :frowning:

No pictures from the office I am afraid, but in machine terms there was running…

MP2000
Laptop XP64-3000
Barton 2500m @ 200fsb
Sempron 64bit 2800 (the new diskless server)
XP1800 @ 166fsb :thumbsup: running diskless testing the new server setup
Duron1800 that got turned on twice I think as I needed it for work
Duron1800 not even got a power cord attached
P3 866 installed Ubuntu on testing diskless that way rather than clean installs, completed one unit and then got the plug pulled.

And so I move on to reducing the power bill. Going to split the farm in the loft into two, using the powerfull not clocked cpu’s most of the time and the others I think are going “on-demand”, or when I feel we have saved enough for some spare holiday cash :smiley:
The P4’s, well the 2.4Ghz in photo2 will be going, and I think the XP2000 will also be leaving.

Office machines are no longer set for “bios-on” anymore.

From my experience with credits and usability of projects - Windows boxes are getting Boinc, the diskless are Folding. At least until there is another race :lol:

DT.

so how many Ghz of crunching power is that in total

@Neal - you’ve met me - I just do a little jump :wink: (loft ladder gets pulled down)

@scott - http://forums.teamphoenixrising.net/showpost.php?p=314061&postcount=5 close enough without adding it all up again

DT.

You forgot to mention the prayer mat :smiley:

:eek: how hot did the loft get when the sun came out?

:haha: :haha: @ Balrog

The please send me 600pointer mat :deal:

Note the desk fan - there are two of those 15" ones and 3 clip fans that ran last summer in an effort to keep it all crunching, just out of shot, in answer Nightlord - errm well when I did go up there, I took litres of water with me because sweat literally dripped off in seconds.

Crazy! :eek:

I can’t believe we lost to that;)

You farmers are just insane, glad i don’t have your electric bills.

thats very insane…dont think I could ever do something on that size…couldnt say thats money well spent :frowning:

but as they say each to there own…

but it is aweseomly impressive :slight_smile:

DT your a crazy man:cuckoo: :smiley:

all the boards were put down by myself and the leccy is running off a SINGLE :eek: extension lead from in the bedroom that runs up through the loft hatch.

Under the crunchers there is;

  1. Layer of laminate floor underlay (acts as a nice sound block)
  2. Loft boards
  3. Sheets of 3/4 ply left over from doing the lean-to store
  4. Left over carpet again to act as dampeners on the vibrations.

Once again, out of shot there are FOUR smoke alarms up there, which I test at least once a month.

Currently there are just 6 of those machines turned on now, all still up there, but just turned off whilst I contemplate the future development :slight_smile:

DT.

A blast from the past!
