    RE-Building The House of RagE - AGAIN

    very clean setup, kind of supprised that you did not go with right angle SATA cables, might clean it up some, but when you are running 12 of them, that might not be a viable sollution.

    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Over!! 2cpu is a monster forum, not on the scale of {h} but still a great forum, and if you ask a question over there, you will get an answer. I know i read it more then i read [H], because the people over there are nicer, and alot less bs and drama goes on.

    Power supply for dual 2.8 and Geforce 6800 Ultra?

    it should have enough power, but make sure you get the correct model with the SSI connectors for your MB, it will make the board more stable. I know that they will run off of a ATX psu, but i had stability issues with my first pc-dl and then upgraded from 550watt ATX to a 550 SSI power supply...

    Funny [H] network pic; is this config even possible?

    i dont think so, becaue the top line is 100 connection speed the next down it 10, i have not seen/read about a router/hub/switch that will show both the 100 and 10 as active for any reason. but you could just re-wire the leds to do that at the flick of a switch but you would need an extra row...

    Favorite Reservoirs

    you do see that the "just a verticle tube thats got a cap" is connected to a T fitting, and is what most people would call a t line, and with its placement, it would fill the sysetm fine, would a res fill/bleed faster sure, but it does have a t line.

    Using a WiFi hotspot illegal?

    if you think that theft of services is a non-issue, get a 2.4ghz cordless phone, and search of a channel that is open with dial tone, with out hooking up your base station, and yes you can do this, because my home phone works great with my buddies base station, (different apt but same complex)...

    Using a WiFi hotspot illegal?

    Unless you have express permission, in most cases written permission, it can be considered Theft of Services, not by the owner, but by the provider (i.e. att/mci/us-west/roadrunner). Now you might have a way out, if the wireless access point is named something to the effect that it is open...

    newbie to MP systems (read: dumb question inside)

    IIRC the only time people have run 2 different spped chips in one mb, is if they are overclocking one to the other, or underclocking one to the other, ignoring that Alphas can and do run cpus are differnt speeds. also no MB maker or chip maker will support you if you run 1 differnt...

    Zalman CNPS 7000AlCu and P4P800

    IIRC the p4p has the cpu socket up a little higher then the p4c, but if you have some room over your MB and the psu it should fit fine, i know in one case i had to remove the fan gard on the PSU for it to fit, it misses the fan, but the fan gard was in the way. but most of the other cases i use...

    Low Network Utilization

    it has very little to do with your hd read/write speeds, you are sending data over wireless, and i know they claim 54mbs, but you really can only use half of the (duplex issues) so thats 28mbs, and then you get about half of that because of overhead issues, and you are down to 14mbs, and thats...

    New Possible Multi-Proccessing Main Rig (Need Help)

    most test show the 533 fsb xeons keeping up and or passing the X48-50 optis (note i put an x in front because it does not relate to performance or anything, just the level of smp support (read 1way =1xx, 2way =2xx, 8way=8xx), and the 800fsb xeons are performing faster then the 533 at the same...

    New Possible Multi-Proccessing Main Rig (Need Help)

    the 3.0ghz will suffer a little bit in gaming vs the 3.4ghz ee chip, simply because most games are not SMP aware at all. but more of them are geting multi threaded things to HT from intel, and that will help midigate this effect. but the 3.0ghz will clean the 3.4ee clock on almost everything...

    Custom Watercooling Project.....need input

    Is it worth Going Dual?

    yes that is the cpu i was talking about, if cash is a problem, get him just one cpu and this moitherboard, and you can upgrade to a second cpu later. you could also put in 2 hd's and setup this up as raid, for a boost in most applications that require HD read/rights. Hope this helps, i know...

    Is it worth Going Dual?

    since he is using Cinema 4d a very smp friendly program, i would defently go with a dual, and duals are not all the expenisve anymore, you could build a monster opti 246 based system that should be almost twice as fast as the 3.4 in cinema 4d and alot other smp aware programs for around 1800...

    Slow Comcast cable

    your speeds on comcast could be do to the fact that comcast likes to over-satrate their network, and that causes bad speeds, but for the most part cables speeds are bursty so if you try your test later, you might get better speeds. but you could always call comcast and complaine but i dout it...

    what are the benefits of a dual cpu rig

    while a faster cpu say a fx53 or p4 3.4ghz will out perform a dual system in alot of programs, because of the lower overhead of only 1 cpu asking for resources, some applications will bennfit from a second cpu, most Divix encoders, and alot of tools in photochop will use both cpus, and you will...

    all intel boards based on the 7520 and the 7525 boards have atleast one pci-Ex and most have 2 PCI-Ex but none of them have any AGP support, also they support the new 800mhz fsb xeons :D very fast, very smoth, and not too expensive.

    Water Cooling + Dry Ice. Is it possible?

    the best anti-freeze i have seen is only good too -100c or so, LN2 is ~-168c (IIRC) so it will still turn the water to ICE and not flow throught your system.
