Oh heck my friend, most are old/obscure servers that would cost you a fortune to ship, I like to tinker with old/weird/unique hardware. It's just a hobby after I come home from a day of being an IT admin of old/weird/unique hardware...


So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

Sounds like it could be fun to tinker with. Any idea on, say, Cinebench scores? I kinda want an old server to mess around with :3

Not yet, I don't have all the parts to make it capable with that currently.

My PE 2900 is running Linux right now, I assume CB doesn't have a linux client?

Server-level hardware is so much more fun to work with than consumer-grade stuff, but it's oftentimes a challenge as well, as the server was never meant to be a gaming box, and you can forget about any sort of overclocking. But you will learn a lot about hardware and pushing it past design limits.

 

Old PowerEdge serves can be had for under 20$ on Craigslist these days, which is where I get all mine

The biggest challenge at the time, was getting a proper video card in the server. The PCIe design spec only supports 25 watts in the main channel, so there was some question about what would happen when putting a high power video card in.

Also, the biggest slot in the 2900 is x8, I have to physically cut down the video card PCIe interface to fit, but after much research (and some breath holding) I discovered the loss from x16 to x8 is practically background noise.

Somewhere in the forums is a post showing off the system with all I had to do to make it work.

What tech gift would you get a 17 year old nephew who is into digital dj'ing, but who you dont know very well?

Is it me or Amazon isn't the same.

 

Ordered a bunch of cables, it said pack of 2. Turns out there's only a single one.

 

Complained to customer support, they said they were sorry for the inconvenience and would correct the listing. Thanks I guess? A whooping C$12.99

 

Ordered another one and managed to get premium shipping (C$6.99) at no cost after complaining more, but c'mon.

yes that is actually an excellent suggestion.  thanks for the reply

You're welcome! I was thinking along the lines of one of the Dj-style ones that you could program effects to, not a twitch streaming one if that wasn't clear.

They button style is just different between the two that's all.

Man. What a way to end the night. Get perm banned on the discord instantly for posting a link in the off topic section to my wife's new valentine soap. Not a mute or a temp ban. Not a warning. Nope perm ban. Like jesus christ I didnt mean to do something bannable which is why i did it in off topic. I liked the discord but that plane is the strictest most harshly moderated discord i have ever seen in my entire life. 

 

Just sad that it ends like this. Not for trolling not for fighting not for mass spamming. But a link. But then again i got muted for 24 hours for posting too many images of my new rig in one post
