    ES Xeon Discussion

    They don't mention 1.35v speeds (motherboard manuals if I understand it correctly note max speed of 1333 mhz for PC3L/1.35v DIMMs) Oh, I just noticed this is a ES Xeon Discussion board, not General Xeon Discussion

    Hey, a quick question: Can E5 v1-v2 run 1600MHz 1.35v RDIMMs at full speed?

    Hi, I've never used these. Are these a standard SSDs? I.e. will they show up in the file explorer as a drive? Will be able to install an OS (Windows) on it? Because this seems pretty interesting thing...

    Potential Deal: 2 x Dual 2011 nodes @$199, Quanta Openrack

    CPUs get to 70 degrees within 10 minutes of 100% load, I meant they get higher shortly after. I see a lot of jumpers on the midpane, maybe they need to be set differently?

    Potential Deal: 2 x Dual 2011 nodes @$199, Quanta Openrack

    Well, one board died on me while not worrying so. By the way manual of a standard commercial Quanta systems had max 130 TDP, while Windmill V2 is 115. So that might be the thing you saw.

    Potential Deal: 2 x Dual 2011 nodes @$199, Quanta Openrack

    CPUs run at 70 degree Celsius just after ten minutes of 100% load (unless ambient temperature is 15 degrees); heatsinks get hot, and the pulled air is really warm too, but fans operate at the lowest speeds (slightly faster when system gets heated), I know this, because once I pulled out one fan...

    Potential Deal: 2 x Dual 2011 nodes @$199, Quanta Openrack

    Hi, Can anybody help me with the backplane fans? My fans never reach its full speed despite CPUs overheating while barely being under full load. I see some jumpers on the backplane, some even mention fans... There should be a way to make fans more agressive, or to set on manual control... Does...

    Buying & Upgrading used workstations - first questions

    This is for your Quanta: QUANTA PCIE RAISER CARD FOR QUANTA WINDMILL SYSTEM | eBay SLI-ing is not something I'd recommend, it's being massively dropped out in modern games, now true multi-GPUs are used in modern APIs (ashes of the singularity is an example) But you'd better forget Windows 10...

    Buying & Upgrading used workstations - first questions

    You can Google and find an answer within seconds. DIMMs per CPU; I do believe you can mismatch but probably you'll loose quad channel; pairs on quad channel makes no sense. You could literary find an answer on Google within seconds. I use motherboard's FDD power to molex and handmade molex to...

    Buying & Upgrading used workstations - first questions

    Yes, it does support 1 CPU config, I think it does support anything in if it's PCIe x16 slot as long as card gets enough power, and I really doubt this PCIe slot provides full power as it should and as it does on desktop; Windmill does support Win 7, I think 8 and 8.1 too (some other open...

    Buying & Upgrading used workstations - first questions

    Hi Twice_Shy, I think you misunderstood what K D meant to say; it's that you should know what exactly you may need. Thing is with server/cheap hardware you get to sacrifice a lot, and some features so to say give certain benefits to certain applications. For example, application that can...

    To be honest since the release of Ryzen I think there are really few options that makes sense to consider: The cheaper route: First gen Core i era dual Xeon build (i.e. i7-980 - Xeon 5600 series) (These costs include shipping) CPU: 2x 4 core 8 thread = 2x$6 Motherboard: $40-$50 X8DTU or...

    AEON Mining Performance

    By the way checked and tried out and AEON calculations seem to be more precise than they are for other coins. Should have had miner around ~0.1 coin and actually have mined slightly more than .09 or more (some more may mature)

    AEON Mining Performance

    Thanks, it does slightly better, but second CPU is getting 1050 h/s while first is getting sub 1200 for some reason, and while both CPUs have 100% usage and same turbo speeds, first CPU has 66w usage while second has 62w; Could be some "features" of Windmill system

    AEON Mining Performance

    I'm getting 2100-2200 (with many windows open, probably will be 100-200 hashes higher with nothing open) on dual E5-2640 v1 using XMR Stak, and yeah, it's way more taxing to the system than XMR, and I think stak's autoconfig did pretty good job - these CPUs have 15 MB of cache and autoconfig...
