how would i go about building a mobo complex?

hey.. so i had an idea recently of building a supercomputer.. is it possible to build it out of a bunch of motherboards if they are the same? if not, how would i? i dont mean just a server.. i actually mean a computer with multiple hdds, cpus, RAM, etc.. i dont really care about the budget i just need to build one.. is it possible to connect motherboards to combite them ? i dont think it is.. so how else could i do it?

they make motherboards with more then one CPU slot, I don't think you can just connect mobos together

yeah i have seen those every so often... but do they make some with more than 2? most i have seen is 2

they already do this with servers

but essentially if you needed to ask this question , then you will need years of school before you can get started

I think I saw a video where Linus had one with like 4 or maybe 6 cpu slots. I think it was 4

Try looking into Beowulf clusters, that could be a way to do this.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

don't know if you know this but anyone who has designed a motherboard you can buy didn't just randomly google around or type internet as interwebs

by the way..... when i say “supercomputer” i just mean a really fast computer that can run mannyyyy things at once. this is kind of tied in with my last post (about a macro pc) except ya know... this is a scaled up version of it

yeah and in 2028...... you still will have to actually learn how a motherboard works prior to designing one

You can technically make a small compute cluster with Rasberry Pis, I'd take a gander at some YouTube guides and look into making one of those for starters, a Rasberry Pi is like $35 for the most expensive one, so the cost to just get some and tinker around is much cheaper than trying to do it with bigger, more expensive PCs. Though given enough skill you can do it with some funky stuff, the military used to have a supercomputer made with 100+ PlayStation 3s.

Both, lots of money won't make up for skill unless you pay others to do it, but then you wouldn't be doing it yourself so it defeats the point of the project.

I would argue that point, but lets just boil it down to this. Human behavior is very interesting because we like to day dream and make grand schemes and even better plans. Posing a question like this is understandable imho, because we as Homo sapiens want to know what the options are, until we realize that it will be hard, we always like to eat the easier patch of grass and daydream about the "greener" pastures over the fence.

 

The O.P. needs to look at server computers, and they are not cheap especially when you get into the 2cpu or more category. Its great for crunching numbers, but for gaming it is not necessary. The best bet for gaming is the newer gen cpu's with a decent graphics card. You can buy a 4th gen intel for $100-$150 that is used or the fancier name is "refurbished" which just means the case has been dusted off. Going to a 2cpu system you could go older server stuff, but even then its expensive.

 

What do you want to do with your system?

Kinda going down a rabbit trail there, thus why I suggested starting with a few Rasberry Pis since that's actually doable for a couple hundred bucks (because you need the mini power supplies and cases and some cables and stuff), whereas that would get you just one good dual socket system (assuming you go X58 and have a spare PSU and such).

well.. if i DO build it, then mass scaled scripts / macros (with hundreds of instances of google / other programs open)

Yes it is possible if they are the same. Hire someone.

 

Yes it is very easy for multiple hdd's and large ram capacity and cpus, hence server pcs.

 

It will cost a ton of money, $50,000 or more!

Need and want are two separate things. Day dreaming is alright, but what do you require in life right now?

 

Look into "Folding at Home"

You can not connect mobo's together without $250k or more!

 

It is very hard to do unless you have a million ore more $!

 

What about a pc server with 1000 cores and 8000 threads?

Like I keep saying, you can literally do that with Rasberry Pis, which are $35 each. No need for millions of dollars, and if you grow past Rasberry Pis you could scale it up to larger PCs and scrounge old server parts. Servers are usually upgraded every few years so they flood the market with parts, part of why X58 xeons and ECC DDR3 are so cheap. Shop around and you'll be able to find older server parts for far less than $250K I'd imagine. No one is going to be able to start at the top end right away, you seem to be assuming he will. He can start with quite cheap hardware and learn how to do it, then scale that up as his budget allows. But no need for a multi-million dollar supercomputer right away.
