    a single p4 prescott rig could be a server, its all about what you can do, no judging, just appreciating others stuff :-)

    This is a little beast I built awhile ago for a HFT client.

    Hardware was 3 servers sporting 3960x's overclocked to 4.8ghz water cooled.
    I went and installed this beast at Equinix NY4. Last time I talked with the client he said I keep loading it but it doesn't slow down LOL
    The server rack cabinet is mine and stayed here, I just need to fill it back up again.

    nice :-)

    I want a rack so bad but can't rationalize purchase.. not enough space/money (to fill it up)

    Yes it is big, but fits right in my work area very well.

    I should load it up with a huge water cooling systems and put my main rig inside LOL

    Upgrading mine soon, will do some pics for this thread

    Found one of my OLD build, not the current one


    Specs on that one:
    E350 by MSI
    4GB Corsair Vengeance
    Dell PERC 6/i modded with AC GPU cooler, 92mm fan on huge alu block...
    picopsu 125W VI
    3x F4EG 2TB
    Corsair Nova 128GB

    Current:
    i3-3225 @ 3.5ghz low vcore
    Antec H620
    Lian Li chassie
    GA-Z77MX-D3H
    8GB GeIL Enhance
    Dell PERC 6/i
    Cheiftec 350W 80+ Bronze
    4x F4EG 2TB
    Corsair Nova 128GB

    Next upgrade (waiting for one more part, this part being a cable...)
    i3-3225 @ 3.5ghz low vcore
    Antec H620
    Lian Li chassie
    GA-Z77MX-D3H
    16GB Kingston confused ram..... Blu RED edition
    Dell PERC H700 modded with ThermalRight HR-05 SLI chipset cooler (and 2x 80mm AC 80MM fans ~5v)
    Antec Earthwatts 80+ plat
    4x F4EG 2TB
    Corsair Nova 128GB

    Next step for the server; 6*4TB RAID5 + 2x500GB 2.5" RAID1

    Power consumption is ~82W at the moment, expected to fall once going H700 + 80 plat, aiming for 70W

    Using this right now but next Thursday some new goodies coming...
    http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...ket-2011-Beast!
    The above system has been a gem, solid and not one complaint.
    100% load since April and even walked in one day when the house was 93F and cpu's at 81C and not a hiccup..
    Crunch with us, the XS WCG team

    Last autumn, I built 3 servers for a study project. People might be interested in the hw configs.

    Server number 1 (single socket):
    Before building the faster server, this one served as a kind of testbed. The goal was to configure it for good I/O performance.
    i7-3930K, 64GB, 32 x SSDs via 4 LSI controllers, Mellanox 40 Gbit/sec network adapter

    Fast I/O needs parallelism, like cpu bound programs need multicore cpus (or gpu's, if the application fits to this hw approach)


    Before settling on the Samsung SSDs, I tested approx. 12 different SSDs for my workload. A few of those can be seen here.


    one of the major benefits of the 4 memory channels of the LGA-2011 socket. They allow decent read performance beyond any LGA-1155 cpu.
    16.7 GB/sec


    Combined workloads with a simultaneous load on the cpu and io subsystem proofed the value of watercooling. The stock and be quiet air coolers limited overall performance. Using a watercooler increased overall performance by 30% on the non-overclocked cpu.
    1.3 mio iops with 20 ssd. cpu is limiting the io subsystem here.


    For flexibility and to facilitate many reconfigurations, i used long sata cables. Optically not nice, but useful.
    This picture was taken when the stock vent was still on. wprime and super pi aren't taxing the CPU as heavily as for instance ycrunch, so the benefit of watercooling might not be as big.


    This server was used for the record runs in ycrunch on calculating pi for 25, 50 and 100 billion digits in the category "single socket systems"
    http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...=1#post5153478


    The other 2 servers had different design goals. One was build for peak io performance on 2 sockets, utilizing 2 x E5-2687W, 256 GB and 48 ssd's. The goal with the third server was to get 72 terabyte capacity under 150 watt on the plug outlet using one E3-1245v2


    cheers,
    Andy

    :-)

    Last year, I saw your Romley system. Soon after Intel released the E5-2687W CPUs ...
    I did see many systems over the years, but from a total system perspective, this platform really shines.

    Especially I/O is at an astonishing level. 6 x LSI controllers make shure data can pass from the ssd's via the pci express 3.0 lanes to memory without too much speed brakes.


    During the haydays of the project, quite a few SATA cables left the box.


    rgds,
