    It's all one big kubernetes cluster. Out of the frame those are sitting on 3 more Z420's like the ones in the background that make up my gaming vm. Nothing like 20 hyperthreaded cores and a pair of K80's for running Space Engineers.. Only drawback is I can only passthrough one core on each K80 so.. twin makes 24g of vram.. I guess that's enough?

    I have another twin opteron out of the pic that's on the way to being a game server so a few of us can all play together without having to mess with Steam accounts and crap like that..

    104 cores in the racks and another 50 in the 420's.. all topped off with a tasty little i7 quad to talk to everything

    I can't be bothered to count up the ram.. 1TB in the C6145, 256 in the 360.. and the others have I think 128 each though one may only have 64.. so it must be getting on for a total around 2tb's of ram

    As for the amount of drive space.. I'm not even going there.. I have a bad habit of buying up job lots of 2tb enterprise sas drives when they come up cheap..

    It's all out over the holidays for a good dust out and spruce up. Normally the rack beasts live under the stairs where they probably annoy next door more than me.

    Basically I got fed up waiting for rips to transcode one at a time.. and these days too many people demand crap in 4K..

    It's got just a little bit of grunt in there. I normally run ffmpeg with 4 threads (diminishing returns with more tbh) so it's not unusual here to do 24 episodes of an anime series batch in parallel..

    All for less than the cost of a high end GPU these days..... and it's cheaper than putting on the heating.

    Hi,

    Twenty Years ago today (OMG :confused:) I joined this forum. I joined Feb 22, 2004.

    Where did the time go? I should get a gold star for having the fewest posts in twenty years:D!

    Thanks for having me as a member and allowing me to read this forum all these years. :cool:

    Welcome back! With your post count I would think you should at least get at least a bronze colored star.

    If you add three more posts you will at least have averaged 1 a year. :D
