Hi, I created this thread to show off some random computer hardware - retro, and new, desktop and server. It will likely contain my opinions on the hardware, photos, screenshots, tests, problems i've encountered, what i liked and what i didn't. Note1: Most of cases will be in racks, and they aren't for "show", i only care about good/decent temps for 24x7x365 ops with 100% utilization. Note2: I mainly use them to either play around, run BOINC projects, 3d graphics software (3dsmax, vue, poser etc.), and sometimes games. Note3: 1U, 2U, 4U, 6U describes the size of the rack case. (use duckduckgo/google for examples) Starting with, let me tell you about current hardware i'm playing with from newest to oldest: #1 4U Mobo = MSI x470 Pro Gaming Carbon CPU = Ryzen 1700x @ 3.9GHz (water loop #1) RAM = 16GB DDR4 3200MHz GPU = Fury-X @ PCI-E 3.0 x8 Drives = 2x NVMe Samsung 960 in RAID0 @ PCI-E 3.0 x8 ~ (not using m.2 slot, just pci-e card) 4x Intel SSDSC2BA400G3 in RAID0 @ SATA (@mobo) PSU = Platimax 850W #2 4U Mobo = MSI x370 Pro Gaming Carbon CPU = Ryzen 1700x @ 3.7GHz (water loop #1) RAM = 16GB DDR4 3200MHz GPU = Evga Nvidia 980Ti Hydro Drives = 1x NVME Samsung 960 @ M.2 PCI-E 3.0 x4 1x Mushin MKNSSDEC240GB 1x Kingston SV300S37A240G 2x Seagate ST4000DM000-1F2168 (RAID1) 1x WDC WD20EURS-73S48Y0 PSU = Platimax 850W #3 6U Mobo = Gigabyte x79 UD3 CPU = Intel 4930k @ 4.2GHz (water loop #2) | *swap* 4820k @ 5GHz RAM = 32GB DDR3 1600MHz GPU = EVGA NV 780Ti SC, Gigabyte Radeon 290x (NoN Ref) Drives = 2x Patriot SSD 60GB PSU = OCZ 700W 80+ Bronze #4 4U (IBM xSeries 225) Mobo = IBM E7505 Master-LS2 MSI-9121 CPU = 2x Intel Xeon @ 3.2GHz Gallatin RAM = 8GB DDR1 266MHz GPU = ATi Radeon x1950 Pro 512MB @ AGP 8x | Palit NV 7600GS 256MB | ATi FireGL 9500 128MB || (Swap) Drives = 1x SCSI Ultra320 Seagate 300GB 15k 5x SCSI Ultra320 MIX 146GB 15k (RAID 1) 1x Generic IBM CD-ROM 1x Generic IBM Floppy PSU = IBM 425W I also have plenty of hardware just laying about, which could be used to build more PC's, but there have no use for me - and my rack is full anyway. In the following posts I will describe and post latest shots of what i'm currently playing with.
