I've been on night shifts and have been reading the crap out of 2/4P build threads and the F@H support forums. I'm s bit more relaxed now. I may be hosed by going for a 2P 24-core Xeon, but not for a while at least. It seems the 16-core restriction is simply made to bump any thought of a desktop doing these WU's. I can fully understand because the server shouldn't have to guess what to hand out based upon the PC's performance and simply making it "16 core" rules a large percentage of them out. It may bump up to 20 by the end of the year if a lot of 8x2 core SR-2 users don't meet deadlines down the road, that's just speculation, and a 12x2 would still fit in the box if it even goes to 24.
I've been getting Unstable machine, but I've also been getting 6000 WU's which seem to plague a lot of folks. Got a 6002 this morning, running about 12m frames at stock clocks and look to meet deadlines. I'm guessing it's right around 78-80Kppd at this early stage and pretty much justifies my virgin attempts at a folding-only 2P build. Two 16x Opties in a SuperMicro would be better, but I didn't have one :p
Still curious if the entire passkey is flagged or just the box.
Part #2 - The passkey is what has to be qualified and you can use multiple boxes to do that. So the passkey gets flagged and affects all clients running that key.
Yeah, I seen that while digging through the F@H troubleshooting forums too
There's got to be something low dollar out there that I'm missing. If $250 is the price for a 2U enclosure and racks to put them in are $500; I see why most run nekkid! Time to break out the TiG and re-invent the wheel?
Or the K'nex In honor of Tedster, long time no post
It's crossed my mind, with Tedster's post in mind actually. Yeah, long time, no post

chumly, Frys has all that shit too. and if you get up to the bay area "weird stuff" has racks for 75 bucks
Yeah, I found the small section at Frys. For two 4' rack fronts they wanted just under $100. I'm probably using the wrong name for these, but they're just the part that you screw drawer's face to once it's slid back in. To get drawer slides they're about $26 per slot. I think I'm going to just make the "fronts" and go for the slides in a framed up wooden frame.
I think I'm bringing it home because of the 2U restriction at work. I found a couple 3/4U slots, but it's high visibility currently since that project is under scrutiny as well where the 2U slot isn't.
