Here's my farm (sorry for the mess, just moved in the condo) :
A view of my HTPC (to the right of the TV) and PS3. My main PC is the silver customWavemaster tower at the right of my desktop :
A view of the storage/server room. The box on the top shelf is the Windows Home Server box with Endian Firewall running in VMWare (this explain why there is 3 ethernet cables plugged, 1 from cable modem, 1 to share the internet to the switch and 1 for gigabit connection. WHS doesn't see the first 2 connections for security reasons). The 2 boxens on the counter are folding boxes (1 act as a dvd ripper as well) :
Another view showing the networking rack with a FS116 16 ports 10/100 switch, a GS108 8 ports gigabit switch, cable/telephone modem and WG302 wireless access point :
L-R on desk: Pentium II torrent box, Windows 7 testing box (running XP in picture), and primary desktop. Window Home Server is under desk, and Dell XPS laptop is on top of file cabinet (with red God of War PSP).
Here's my Folding@home box (in spare bedroom) that I posted in a different thread:
Man, you guys have got some awesome folding rigs. No wonder this team is in first place (by quite a bit, too).
Me, I fold for another team and I've just got one dedicated folding rig (I call it my "plant" rather than a farm). Practically, the other two rigs also fold 24/7, but only the one is pretty much dedicated to folding.
If it's OK with the powers that be here I'll post some pics. Since I fold for someone else I'm not sure it is kosher; someone let me know.
Great. Some people are kinda sensitive to postings from "the enemy" on their site - glad that isn't the case here.
This is my little folding plant/PC puttering around area (specs in sig). Two main rigs plus wif'es are in family room.
I was inspired to build this little thing by a couple people around the web who built something similar. It is in our one big room in the basement, which has two benefits - 1) the fan noise doesn't bother anyone (when my daughter and her friends play down there they don't even notice it) and 2) it is pretty cool, which helps the cards run cool.
I built this pretty much on the cheap (except for the GPUs), buying everything used/on sale that I could. I've since swapped out the two PSUs for one Corsair - the VGA-only Thermaltake refused to work after a power outage at my house. Afterwards I saw others had written that power outages with this particular PSU had blown through mobos and VGAs, but luckily that didn't happen here.
Currently about 30K PPD w/6 GPU 2s and 1 SMP client. Hoping to add one more 9800GX2 to the rig, but a bit tough getting used/cheap ones.
Here are a couple of pics of my 24/7 folding garden. I know it ain't much, but every bit counts helping medical science fight some serious diseases by DCing
The pics show my external, on the window sill, ghetto WC'ing system for my 2x Q6600's. I call it my "cat box city cooler" The pics also show my "nekkid" E6600 and the tunnel I make every morning for my cat named Shelby (hell, she probably knows more about computers than a lot of "self professed computer experts" do
That's a really old rig I keep around for scavenging. I pulled a couple of leads out of it for wiring up an on/off switch and a reset switch for the folding rig, which is nekked on the top shelf in the first pic.
