Re: £1000 for nvidia 1080ti

Hi Neil That's shocking...!! I guess NVidia are trying to generate profits based on the "Apple" methology - make something that lots of people want and charge as much as you like for it, as the brainless morons will just lap it up...!! And of course this will just inflate the second user prices too....

Hi Neil

Excellent work - well done on reaching a BEEELLION ;-)

Hopefully the next BEEELLION won't take as long and in due course, we'll be celebrating you on reaching 11 digits :-)

Re: Holy Grail: Dual V1 Xeon Mobo £69.99

Hi Both, If you can't get into the BIOS then the CPU isn't running. If the CPU isn't running then there's no diagnostics from either a serial port or a network one. Sadly, the RMM wouldn't do anything in this situation. The first step is to get the BIOS going. Mark Hi Mark Understood...though I had...

Just out of interest, are the 2 boards that have now failed S2600CP4 or S2600CP versions? Could be useful to know if its the earlier version failing, especially if anyone is going to buy anymore of these boards in the future.

Re: Holy Grail: Dual V1 Xeon Mobo £69.99

HI Chris Understood on all points :-) I was rather hoping that this device might enable access to the mobo, to see the POST errors...but if the BIOS must be adjusted to "enable" the RMM, then this isn't going to help. I'll wait and see if Mark can check this out too...and it's even possible that Mar...

Re: Holy Grail: Dual V1 Xeon Mobo £69.99

Its interesting that you guys spotted the extra SATA ports and NICs as I complete missed it, and perhaps it explains something which came with my Intel mobo but which the seller did not know what it was (just that it was connected when he took the servers apart). https://cpb6bq.db.files.1drv.com/y4...

Collatz and PrimeGrid milestones

Hi all,

In the last few days, I've hit:

500 million on Collatz
50 million on PrimeGrid

and I've nearly got to:
5 miilion on SETI@home

So, a small fanfare and maybe a couple of Jaffa cakes with a cup o' char is in order ;-)

Re: Holy Grail: Dual V1 Xeon Mobo £69.99

Hi all, I decided to cancel the order for the mobo, as BH didn't have any and couldn't say if they would get any more. I didn't think the Chenbro would be suitable so I might go the other route and look into single CPU mobos instead - at the very least it might mean I can bring a second GPU into the...

Re: Holy Grail: Dual V1 Xeon Mobo £69.99

Hi Chris I did speak to the guys at BH on the phone and it was they that suggested the Chenbro. The one thing I don't know yet, is whether the Chenbro supports the DDR3L RAM that I had in the Intel mobo. And getting an equivalent 64 Gb of standard DDR3 might be expensive. If the Chenbro doesn't DDR3...
