Pics of Dual CPU systems.
 
Lets be having them then. :)

Some of you guys must have some cool looking dually boxes.
What cooling you got ? Is it overclocked ?

LutaWicasa 20th September, 2002 04:15 PM

Mines not here yet :(
Would ya like pics from unpacking through the final running rig?:)

BigRed 20th September, 2002 04:15 PM

Look at mine :D

Random Nonsense 20th September, 2002 04:21 PM

If my cunning plan comes togeather expect piccies... but not until next month :(

I want a dual Xeon rig, anyone willing to loan me some money? :rolling:

Actually, someone currently owes me enough money to build a nice SMP rig, though getting them to cough up the cash is proving to be extremely difficult! Depending on how things look when I manage to get paid what is owed me(if it ever happens), I may just splurge on dual CPU setup. It's been a full year since I've built myself a completely new system.

Dont you hate it when friends are clients..... and you see they are starting a buisness so you charge like only the minimum you need to build the PC'S and then come back alter after they make some $$$ and say....... ok- can you pay me the other $2000 for the bid? :(

dimmreaper 21st September, 2002 06:14 AM

It's not a matter of friends or PCs, but a matter of family and money lent with the impression given that I would be paid back in relatively little time. $1800 is a lot of money to lend in good faith, I'm either really nice, or just a sucker.

himura-dono 25th September, 2002 11:17 AM

dimmreaper, you sound like me.... >_<"

so now, instead of finishing my dually with the money i would have had (if i hadn't been a nice guy), i wind up having to pay my tuition till my appeal goes through. x_X

Jeff - Is this what you are talking about? It's well worth the money. Specs can be found here.

dimmreaper 27th September, 2002 07:32 AM

That's the stuff Colin! Though the swiftech setup isn't my style. How are the dual Xeon boards in terms of overclocking? I wouldn't expect much in that department, but I'd be thrilled to hear otherwise.

I'm a bit curious to see what kind of a performance hyperthreading will bring to Folding@Home when multiple processes are run(FAH throws a lot of dependant instructions the CPU's way, so in theory it should help to some degree). Wouldn't happen to know anything about that would you?

I hope Intel gets around to some dual channel DDR action soon, hopefully they have an SMP capable dual DDR solution in the works.

Random Nonsense 27th September, 2002 11:34 AM

Hey colin! long time no see! :)

Nice rig, not many people have Xeons they can show off :)

muddocktor 27th September, 2002 07:35 PM

This is my humble AMD dually rig.

I built this computer in it's present form with the A7M266-D board about 3 months ago as a single proc system and finally added the other processor about 2 months ago. I'm cooling it with 2-Maze1C waterblocks, because they use the socket clips for mounting. The Asus board doesn't have the 4 holes around the sockets. I'm running 2-XP2000+ procs in it at 1763/141 fsb and no problems. The case was originally built for pelt cooling a P3 1.26S server proc, which I got up to 1713 mhz at over 180 fsb. Even at that speed, it still wouldn't outfold my old Tbird at 1400, so I decided to try a dual system out with this case. The gray electrical box you see mounted on top is where the pelt psu resides. It is big enough to run a 24v, 172 watt pelt. My future plans are to move the present dual system to another SX1240 case and to use this case for exploration into the overclocking abilities of the rev. B Tbred procs, using active cooling measures.

Dual P3 Xeons, 733mhz, 2mbs L2 cache each:


edit- it's hard to see the CPUs, but they're the big black cartridges. Wish I didn't have to make multiple posts because I have these pics hosted elsewhere, but thanks for being generous with forum bandwidth.

dimmreaper 13th October, 2002 08:33 PM

Very nice rigs Donny! May I ask what you use them for? And which of your two K7 dually boards do you prefer most?

donny_paycheck 13th October, 2002 10:22 PM

The Durons are on a MSI K7D Master-L and it's by far the best of the 760MPX boards. Reason being, it has voltage and multiplier adjustments in BIOS. No other 760MPX board has this. I bumped up the vcore to 1.8v and got the Morgans to 1470 no problem.

The MP 2000+s are on a Gigabyte GA-7DPXDW and it only has FSB adjustments. I got this first because it had the highest review marks in the Firing Squad 760MPX board roundup. I was able to get the MPs up to 1715mhz from 1667 at default vcore thanks to their AGOIA steppings. If I had them in my MSI I'm sure they'd go a lot higher with more voltage. I wrote a short article about this system here.

The Durons have 512mb of RAM and a little 10 gig drive, they run Folding@Home. The MPs also run F@H, but the system doubles as a file server because I have a 4-drive RAID 5 in it. You can see it in the pic, I used a 3ware escalade 7540 ATA RAID controller and a quartet of 30 gig western digital drives. I originally had the MPs and the GA board in my main system but I decided to move it over and replace it with a single CPU setup in the interest of getting the best performance in video games. I don't do enough serious work to justify a SMP system as my primary machine.

BigRed 13th October, 2002 11:51 PM

Looks like donny likes the antec cases ;)

Ohh and where did you get those rounded ide cables in your mp rig? those are badass, i want some :)

donny_paycheck 14th October, 2002 12:55 AM

Yeah, Antecs = teh r0x0r.

The cables I got from www.kdcomputers.com , right here:

Its obvious why your name is Donny_Paycheck!

Hey, if they arent already spoken for, why not sign up to our F@H team? Would be a great boost to output!

donny_paycheck 25th October, 2002 06:23 PM

Actually, I'm already folding for team 3365, xtremesystems.org. Just finished beating down the EEEEVILLL hotmail. :)

So long as those Mhz arent going to waste :)

:D Same board as me. And same chips :D Although I haven't tested it yet, killed one of the chips on insertion. So I have to order another one, and I need to wait for my credit card to do that!

I also own a dual celeron 500@666 machine.

this is the mobo i HOPE to be getting
 
its an ebay sale so it might not fall through...
its a L440GX and by looking at the intel website it can take 2 p3 1000Mhz.. so thats 2 ghz b4 i start tweakin it and stuff.

now i just gotta track down 2 p3 1000 slot-1's

piece of cake :rolling:

Actually it is.
Compgeeks, p3 slot 1 1ghz cpu $99 each
http://www.compgeeks.com/products.asp?cat=CPU

Edit: They have 3 left, hurry and get them if you want them.

piccoLEW 7th November, 2002 08:06 PM

must have gone already :( as i have failed to see a p3 1000 (slot-1 they have: soclet 370 tho)

im just a cheapskate really :D

although im not v. good at spottin stuff in big lists of things

BigRed 7th November, 2002 11:53 PM

Yup the 1ghz is gone already.
The 800mhz slot 1 is still there though, its at the top of the list.
Edit: 1 left of those :p theres 13 left of the 733mhz ones

Spode 8th November, 2002 12:52 AM

don;t get a 733, you'll have a terribvle time overclocking them. You want a 100mhz chip if you are ocing.

piccoLEW 9th November, 2002 03:52 AM

well, sadly i was outbid :(. i recieved a p2 300 (heatsink) but that didnt work, tried loadsa things :/ dam irish construction ;) .

and now i completly mangled that processor, it wont even fit into the slot now :rolling: cos i pried open the top panel with a screwdriver.

i have opted to buy a celeron 433Mhz slot1 and a heatsink +fan but i dont expect to see any of that for at least 6 weeks (expected time using us airmail). what will i be able to oc that to. any guesses? im hoping up to 460Mhz or a bit more.

blucher 16th November, 2002 03:35 PM

I have 4 Tyan Tigers among which is this one.

XP1900's X 2 1G DDR, Dualhead Matrox G450

http://members.localnet.com/~mitzvan.../DCP_DP_FL.jpg

I repainted it and shined up the case a bit.;)

http://members.localnet.com/~mitzvan.../DCP_GLOSS.jpg

I have a Thunder mobo I'll be swapping into this case but I've had no previous success getting Thunders to work.

Errr I want to build a dual system........ I would if a business that i do contracting for would antie up the 5k they owe me so far for this year..........

Random Nonsense 17th November, 2002 12:01 PM

GAH! sucks being owed money Jazz, sucks even more to owe it (Like me)

blucher 18th November, 2002 01:31 PM

Nice avatar Jazz. I was IBEW for 13 years. May I borrow it for a day to bug some Extreme Rightwingers?
<G>

My cases are large to facillitate working inside. They're also pretty packed with burners and HDD's. I use a 5 box LAN for backups. I'm not a fan of tape or Iomega.

Two more...........
