    OK, Intel guys, beat this! :)

    I got a nice, little 4P board a while ago. After fiddling with it alot, making custom mounts for my heatkiller blocks, dremling some heatsinks, spending $1k on cooling parts alone, I finally got the mofo up and running. Being close to -10c here in the evenings, I decided to push the rig a little bit before installing folding@home and let it do what I got it for: give me some nice points in that ranking.

    I'm happy with the results, got closer to the wp1024m overall record than I thought I would using these CPUs, raped the UCBench WR, and finally got the overall Cinebench R11.5 WR as well

    I didn't push too much for UCBench, wanted to keep the board alive... had roughly 1250-1300w power draw during this run. Maybe I can squeeze another 100MHz out of it... I also knew these chips were efficienct in this benchmark.

    http://hwbot.org/submission/2359165_...52.3_mpt_score

    Cinebench was just a quick and dirty run. Expected a tad less than I got, but I guess my test run at stock wasn't very effiencient for some reason.

    http://hwbot.org/submission/2359161_...6_43.09_points

    wPrime1024m was the most difficult one, and the system was pushed pretty much to it's limits. Too bad wprime is very inconsistent on this setup, had to rely on "lucky runs", with no threads lagging behind or console cleaning crap. I think I COULD have beaten the overall record, but the PSU (AX1200) shut down during a run at 4700Mhz and 1.475v, pulling ~1550w according to my wattmeter. A blown up $4k rig... sounds nasty! But everything works OK

    http://hwbot.org/submission/2359164_...76_30sec_921ms

    Thumbs up to SuperMicro for making a server board that can take one hell of a beating, and the AX1200 is a very nice unit as well (I wonder if I'm the first to trigger OCP using CPUs "only" on a 1200w unit...)

    THanks guys I wish I had 4 cpu pots... I'd run a little LN2 on the 2nd mobo and my 4 Magny Cours chips. wp1024m will fall for sure if i try that. I hope the ax1200i can handle the current :p

    I got a part time job next to my studies. Instead of saving those $$$ I spent them on these rigs :p Though I didn't buy much else apart from the parts needed to complete the first build. Still waiting for a couple of parts for the 2nd one. Also not sure if the custom brackets fit, some were ok, some not. if i can get one of the two holes to fit, that'll be enough i think :p

    This to me is the real spirit that we have seen in the past at XS.
    People that have an idea and then pursue that idea and make it work.
    You have to respect and admire people with that kind of drive.

    Totally agree with you my good old friend Dave , this reminds me of the good old times here on XS with extreme mods like this , this is trully inspiring work done by Knut , lot of hardwork and money spent to get this set up running ,he accomplish something none has before , well done Knut

    Love you guys <3 <3 <3

    I should add that I think I didn't have to add all those sinks between the sockets, as I believe those are for the memory slots, not the CPU (mem voltage is stuck at 1.5v anyway). They're not even close to bein warm. Though, I SHOULD get some sinks for a couple of chips on the back... :p

    Or it may support affinity so I could check 40 'real' and 24 HT cores?

    Yep. Not to mention I got TWO of these setups :p Was running a little wprime 1024m on air using 4x magny cours engineering samples earier today, but looks like I screwed up one of the sockets... only single channel works, so I guess I have to send it to Supermicro for a socket replacement... Good thing it's got no sinks and stuff yet. Got 33.xxx seconds, though... without mounting the coolers, and CPU overheating :p If I had 10L LN2 and 4 pots I'd be sub 30 in no time.
