Budget, SandyB-E may well be a monster but i pretty much made up my mind when i found out
Quote:
The pricing of Core i7-3930K has been confirmed at US$560
back around late July.........Hence, the following post.

I still plan on getting one (1) but sadly there won't be a fleet of them.

If only big big adv was staying 12 cores. I'm only two frames into this P6903 but I'm getting a tpf of 37:43 with light comp usage and a PPD of 114459.

Latest Virtualbox running with all 12 cores
Ubuntu 11.04 guest
3930k 4.925GHz

VT-d is not virtualization. It's DMA access to hardware . I know it allows you to forward PCI/PCIe cards and the like to the vm.

I might do a linux install on another drive sometime next week to test this.

Just curious... isn't 1.44v on the very high side of what is recommended "safe"? Just seems like a lot. I know folks run their 2600k cpus higher than 1.35v and have seen no ill effects as of yet and I just figured the voltage requirements would be in a similar range for SB-E.

Intel docs state 1.4v max. I'm running 1.53v right now, but on high end water. I have seen people state to not go past 1.6v unless you are going sub zero. Right now no one really knows what is safe, so in order to be "safe" you should stick to the Intel spec. Intel has been known to raise their specs on safe voltage before though.

Seems a few people are running between 1.35 and 1.5+ here and on other sites. If I am not mistaken CJ145 is running 1.53v core. I wonder how his CPU is?

These are just testing clocks, not what I will be running 24/7. It will do 4.6GHz at a safer 1.35v all day long so that is what I will set it to. I just wanted to see what it would do at maximum clocks on Bigadv before they go away... at least for < 16 cores.

So far it has run folding for over 24 hours and not had one failure at current settings (4857.7MHz and 1.44V). 4.9GHz would fail OCCT and P95 for some reason even at 1.5v and I don't want to push it further than that on Corsair water cooling. I would push it if I had custom W/C though just to see if it could do 5GHz, even though I was still far away from "i7-3930K enabled thermal throttling at 86°C". It folds consistently at the current speeds and voltages at 68-72°C. The higher temps in my logs above were from running small data sets in OCCT.

Lets have some discussion on it though, what does everyone think would be a good safe voltage/temperature limit for 24/7 folding and not burning out the cpu in 30 days?

So I got a non big bigadv unit this time on my machine. Ubuntu 10.10 VM on my 3930k at 4.9GHz with 2133MHz cl9 memory.

Code:
Project ID: 6901
 Core: GRO-A5
 Credit: 7164
 Frames: 100


 Name: SB-E Hex VM
 Path: \\vmvmvmvm\FAH\
 Number of Frames Observed: 82

 Min. Time / Frame : 00:14:44 - 87,121.5 PPD
 Avg. Time / Frame : 00:14:53 - 85,807.8 PPD
 Cur. Time / Frame : 00:15:02 - 84,235.6 PPD
 R3F. Time / Frame : 00:14:55 - 84,953.3 PPD
 All  Time / Frame : 00:14:53 - 85,160.5 PPD
 Eff. Time / Frame : 00:15:09 - 83,529.0 PPD
Light use on the computer throws frame times all over the place. VM is paused for gaming etc.

Congrats! Very nice!

I'm also very jealous. I never was able to get virtualbox to work work for my i7 970 in win 7.

Specs and Pricing of Xeon E5-2600 series

I wonder how these will perform with SR3 boards and comapred to G34 set-ups

The E5-2630 price seems to be a sweet spot, for me anyways. All the rest a way, way out of my price range.


Model Cores Threads Frequency L3 cache TDP Price
Xeon E5-2603 4 4 1.8 GHz 10 MB 80 Watt $202

Xeon E5-2620 6 12 2 GHz 15 MB 95 Watt $406
Xeon E5-2630 6 12 2.3 GHz 15 MB 95 Watt $612
Xeon E5-2630L 6 12 2 GHz 15 MB 60 Watt $662
Xeon E5-2637 2 4 3 GHz 5 MB 80 Watt $884
Xeon E5-2640 6 12 2.5 GHz 15 MB 95 Watt $884
Xeon E5-2643 4 8 3.3 GHz 10 MB 130 Watt $884

Cheapest 8 core Xeon is $1100. Damn you AMD, make better processors already...

Edit: I tried the core wrapper in the vm from kraken and TPF has dropped to 32:22
