Default Re: Anyone here also have an extreme computer?

bratman, is that a vapor phase change system i see???? i think it is! Nice!

I have a few parts laying around to build one, like a Chilly 1 Evap and the Flex line, a Danger Den cube condensor and a Danfos NL11FX compressor at my disposal! plus all of the tools and tubing to make the loop + a full 30 pounder of R22.

I was thinking a Q9650 overclocked and cooled to -60*c would be a nice addition.

I currently have 1TB of hard drive space.

Extreme? Maybe. There are a few upgrades I could do that would put it over the top but performance per cost ratio doesn't justify it as there isn't a game my system cannot run as is.
That thing seems pretty wicked. I love the FSB speeds! and the removable SATA drives are awsome. i picked a few of those up off ebay and from now on thats all ill ever use for my HD's.

I must have over 2.5TBs of data storage in my house. Seriously. lets see,

on my HTPC i have 1 maxtor 1TB drive (removable) and one 500gig Western Digital (internal).

on my DVR system i have a 500gig Western digital (internal)

on my dell laptop i have 250gig

on my sony vaio i have 90gig

on my gaming rig i have two 74gig raptors and one 250 gig Western digital.

on my print server i have 1.2gig

so thats 2.7 terabytes total, wow

Default Re: Anyone here also have an extreme computer?

I got nothing personally. *Well, a really nice laptop, but nothing extreme. *

My officemate, however, who is a graduate student in computational/theoretical studies of materials, has access to everything here: http://hpc.cnsi.ucsb.edu/clusters/clusters.php


Summaries of some of them:

1: The Dell cluster is composed of Dell 1750 dual CPU 3.06GHz Xeon servers and a single Dell 1750 monitoring node. The head node has 4GB RAM, 2 mirrored system disks, and a 2TB RAID array that is shared to the cluster. The 128 compute nodes have 2GB RAM each, and a Myrinet M3F-PCIXD-2 card. The nodes are interconnected using a M3-E128 Myrinet chassis fully populated with M3-SW16-8F line cards. There are two Ethernet networks, one for general TCP traffic (NFS, etc.) and one for administration.

2: This cluster is based on HP DL145 Opterons (2218's, 2.6Ghz) with a Myrinet2k high speed, low latency interconnect. Each node has 4Gb of RAM and 80 Gb of local disk space. (This is also a 128 node machine, each node having 2 dual-core processors).

And so on. *It's funny to hear his group sit around and talk about how one cluster is SOOOOO slow for certain jobs, and the smallest clusters are still 16 processors. *One system shows up as a single computer with 16 processors and 32 GB of shared RAM for extreme parallelization/high memory requirements. All that power, and all they ever see are command line print-outs and some charts and graphs.


Of course, people at other universities will have bigger systems than this.
