  1. https://stats.foldingathome.org/donor/RollinLower gets you to mine
  2. so far it seems the site is still not quite ready wait nvm, it's working now!
  3. Help me figuring out how to add more radiator space in my 4U F@H/BOINC box.


    Option A:

    1U rad above the GPUs. Will make swapping out cards a pain in the butt tho.



    Option B:

    120 rad behind the CPU. Would mean I have to drill new mounting holes. I do have a 120 noctua left tho so it would be actively cooled.



    Option C :

    240 rad in front of the main 360 rad.

    WOuld mean most extra surface area, really not sure how to make it work tho.

      From my experience you are correct. I have also never seen self-contained water cooling solutions in rack mount chassis in the datacentere. If the servers are plumbed they're plumbed right into the rack/building. Typically 2U's with basically zero space for radiators.

      alphacool makes some sick renderboxes with self contained waterloops, but i've never seen one in the flesh. absolute units!

      That is a beautiful box. I wonder what that motherboard is. Looks like SP3 from here.

      well i guess it;s probbaly based on an existing platform, but i havn;t done enough research to know what. i just think they look sick and would be amazing F@H boxes. 😄

  4. well, the channel really isn't meant for people like you i guess anyway.
  5. also, this box is now officially christened Lil' Lad.
  6. welp, there she is! I swapped the 32GB registered sticks out for 16GB unregistered ECC sticks, and she booted no problem! I kept the RAM heatsinks for these sticks too ofcourse, it's still ECC. I also swapped the bulky SATA cable out for a slimline SATA cable from a SuperMicro server. this thing turned out quite nice if i do say so myself. after tuning the fan curve a bit it can actually run fanless most of the time, but if it reaches 45C it'll start ramping the fan slowly. silence was definitely a factor during this project, and i feel i definite
  7. that's also around the time we hold our largest F@H event.
  8. Got a new mousepad, makes the desk look a lot cleaner, and makes typing a lot nicer! EDIT: also took the time to finally clean up the cables on the back of my server rack!
  9. mostly the community surrounding it, and the fact that i'm actually doing something usefull with the hardware i own. the folding community on this forum is very much alive, which makes it fun to participate and hang out with people.
  10. welp, the final parts arrived and the box is together! sadly this doesn't mean it's actually working tough. But we'll get to that when we get there. first thing first, heatsinks for the RAM! make any green PCB stick look 100 times sexier with one simple trick. after that the noctua cooler arrived! i thought this would mout to the stock backplate of the AM4 socket, but that turned out to be not the case. so welp, guess the motherboard comes out again. after that it's a super simple process tough, put on the backplate and screw the coole
  11. welp, some parts arrived today, and i've got some good news and some bad news. lets start with the good news. the case arrived today, and this thing is proper tiny! here it is on top of my current main build, in a Lian Li O11D Mini. I also got the CPU in, meaning i can finally get that socket populated! so in with the motherboard, and lets see how everything is gonna fit Here we got our first problem tough. This case 'officially' supports 2 2.5 inch disks on the disk tray that mounts above the motherboard. sadly to
  12. don't forget they handed you an award as well!
  13. the I5 10600K will not work in the same motherboard as the I3 4150. you would need to swap that aswell The 10600K also needs different RAM. at that point you might be better off building the entire thing yourself.
  14. knowing the F@H dev team (or lack there of) this might be done in the year 2256!
