  • neojack333

    maybe you could build a 2U cooling box for this server, where you put slim rads. and use a low profile waterblock, and quick disconnects adaptors. oh and remove the stock radiators and fans. (or undervolt the fans)

    beeee casue dumb asss it is 1100 W peak & it is specifically designed by professionals with proper tuned switching semiconductors. not like that fucking black masterbation box from some cheap assed Taiwanese provider, cos like that's why server tech is more expensive..... they use better parts.... Oh and it is basically FUCKING USELESS for high frequency trading. Why ? BEcauuuseeee HFT is about latency...... or lack of it.... why the fuck would you use a fast CPU for HFT? when the latency is gonna be induced by your fucking 1G network connector (the bottle neck) and as a result your fucking software stack BEFORE you get to your overclocked masturbation CPU?' If this were suitable for HFT it would be using 10G/40G optical connectors. some of the BEST HFT systems have custom FPGA AT THE CABLE IMPLEMENTING THE NETWORK STACK...... LOOKING AT THE BIT TRAFFIC AS IT COMES OVER THE FUCKING WIRE..... the data does not even make it to the "CPU"

    Jake, why are you giving apple ideas

  • somedude

    I like the idea of a water cooled server, If you remove the heat exchanger from the inside of the server case and pump the coolant to a external heat exchanger it would solve the noise and give you a significant of real estate inside that server.

  • Willis Cooper
    Willis Cooper

    Add GPU to a water cooled server....oh jesus Linus stop, just stop. Bashing the 1U riser card, which seems foreign to him, because you have to use a half height GPU....The server wasnt built to expect a GPU. Those slots are most likely and almost certainly meant for PCIe network cards or HBA SAS to connect to back end storage.

    I worked in HFT software for a bit and I can tell you that they care about MICROSECONDS, so if you can get milliseconds of difference from something as easy as a one-off hardware purchase they're going to jump at it. These are the kinds of companies that fight over rack space so they can reduce the length of their fibre lines by a few centimetres,.

  • 麦

    Overclocking is pretty stupid, even in gaming CPUs.

    I can see the business logic behind the creation of this server. They can simultaneously broaden their client base and create a better served for elite business clientele. This in turn means much more money for developing high end gaming hardware, to make themselves more competitive.

  • Blackheart

    I wish LINUSS READ THISSS I really want a gaming pc for my birthday I'm turning 19 this APRIL I would appreciate even spare parts from himm

  • elrabin

    Pretty major downsides compared to other systems on the market designed for HFT. A few companies already have systems designed to "pin" clock speeds at a specific frequency with no jitter. Officially supported by Intel, you're disabling cores and increasing clock speed with the gained thermal overhead. No need for liquid cooling, more robust storage, networking and management options. I don't see this having legs in HFT

    You can double up your drywall in that server room then do the sound deadening material over that, it will Dramatically help

    End more fukin bull shiet , ok Sebo , this serwer rebulding to wery power full pc , no fuckin serwer only gaming , next my idea , mayby 10 ventilators or castom very high perfomance water cooling , en sli grafics only cross , ?please test it , this .,

    15:08 Why not just build a room - in - room construction for your servers? You know, like the ones recording studios use. With your Server Setup you don't even have to worry about the size.

    why don't you guys just get some old 4U or 2U server and rebuild it into that? and add some RTX Titan or RTX 2080Ti, that would be very sweet for Adobe ME :)

    When I was working for Inventec, I sometimes tested 1U servers with 4 xeon cpus :) it depends on what you want and how much you can pay for it, it is possible to make small server powerful, just not cheap

    if they would move the PCIe Slot for full length cards and the extra PCB board, they could put full GFX cards in there and it would work for your purpose! tho those fans sounds like 90DB lol (as loud as a popping balloon!)

    No point in using a 1u design where space isn't a concern. They are always too loud to be in the same building as humans. Given LMG's use case, just buy a 4u chassis and build whatever water cooled system you like inside it. You have the room in your rack. 1u only make sense where you have a specific task and getting the most systems capable of that task per cabinet is the most important factor.

    If you were going to have water cooled server components wouldn't it be easier to set up the racks with quick disconnects to a master loop that goes down to a bar fridge holding multiple radiators and a pump (thin Honda Civic sized radiators and Davies Craig EWPs). Then there'd be less weight and noise overall and a more consistent temp control while also having enough head room to be expandable.
