  1. i mean, using collatz is basicallky cheating anyway. if you want to get the same badge on something like rosetta you'd take much longer. yes, i've been crunching collatz for a bit too, and yes i'm a hypocrite, but imo collatz as an argument is kinda invalid.
  2. whoa, that's pretty sick. i can't imagine how loud the HDD's get when you put some load on them tough!
  3. And here's the reason why soft tube > hard-line for servers.


    1. Den-Fi


      Lol yes. This is why my rackmount build will get the ZMT treatment should I ever decide to loop it.

      And I probably will since I plan to have the 2080s in it fold year round.

      @Den-Fi yeah watercooling is probbaly best then, especially with the ZMT. i only got different tubing because i already had all fittings in this size, and getting new fittings + ZMT was gonna be too expensive for a 'budget' compute box.

      i do have plans to mod the system a bit with 3D printed panels to make it look a lot cleaner. i also wanna re-run the loop, but i dunno how i want it yet. the parrallel CPU's are definitely staying tough, this is just so handy!


      first 3D printed tests where not very succesfull tough..


      seems like my server puts out more heat than i thought!

    3. Den-Fi


      Whew! That's crazy.

      Yeah, my dual 2080s would definitely melt that plastic too.

  4. check your CPU/GPU usage when you're gaming. if they are both in the higher end of the percentage you are looking at a well tuned system. if one is substantially lower than the other you're looking at a bottleneck. personally i don't think you should be looking at a better CPU. the 2600 is a very capable gaming chip, and it'll run your 2070 Super no problem. maybe when you upgrade your GPU in the future you might want to look into something that clocks a bit higher, tough i doubt you'll need more than 6 cores for a long time.
  5. when looking for a budget AIO you should just go for a air cooler. budget AIO's are usually just bad performers allround and things like a dark rock pro 4 will run circles around 240mm budget rads.
  6. my GF's cat puked over my server and shorted out one of the PSU's so yes, cats can damage your rig. but not in the way you think. RIP HP DL380 G6. you'll never be forgotten
  7. somehow my machines (both my server and main rig) can't recieve WU's from rosetta@home. they keep crunching colatz and einstein no problem tough. what gives?
  8. don't expect to get 900K all the time every time. the PPD you get can fluctuate rather wildly, and is very much dependant on the work units you get. PPD on the two 1070's i run 24/7 can fluctuate from 1.6M to 900K depending on the work they get.
  9. well dang, that explains quite a lot actually. was wondering why my production took a hit!
  10. well, they're pretty easy to get. just start Folding or do some BOINC and you should have atleast two in no time at all!
  11. It makes enough sense to be valid tho! I might borrow this excuse from you in the future
  12. Oh that hits pretty close to home. I live in my own apartment now so I get to do whatever the hell I want, but when I still lived at home this was pretty much it
  13. sorry mate, but i'm afraid overclocking the chip isn't going to magically get you decent FPS in those games. what you should be looking for is a decent upgrade. maybe some secondhand laptop with a dedicated GPU.
  14. yep, that's moms for you. now pause that darn online game and come have dinner!
