For the people using the SR-2, I don't suppose anyone is using ECC memory?

From what I read only the version 2 is Ecc compatible. But I would not see why you would pay the premium. The error correction is not much of a factor for folding/gaming...

How is the build going ?

So, Sr-2 HWC members are :

Charlie3.0 and lowfat ? any other people ?

I might join at one point... I got the itch...

Non registered DDR is only a few bucks more than regular DDR. $250 can easily get me 12GB of 1333MHz ECC.

And the build is going...well... extremely slowly. The board, memory, and the gear I need to make the bench table, WC gear is going to be about another $1700 - $2k. I hope to have it operational by the end of the month, but it won't be looking pretty or watercooled for quite some time after that.

I do believe Chilly also has an SR2 at the moment.

1333 mhz ? With the lower multiplier than the i7 950 etc... I would look more for 1600 Mhz, for more head room, no ?

edit : where did you buy the board ? It ssems there is only Ncxi (out of stock) and the egg that has them...

I would need to break 222 bclk before 1333MHz memory would start being the bottleneck of an overclock. And that is assuming it won't overclock at all. And there is almost no possibility of an SR-2 reaching that high of a bclk.

I cant find the link, but I do remember someone comparing ECC vs non-ECC for f@h setups, and saying they did see a improvement in PPD...I wish I could find the link to verify against tho. Might be worth researching some more in to it Lowfat, especially if its that cheap to pick up ECC...

I haven't ordered it yet, but I'll likely buy from Newegg.ca since it is the cheapest.

Anyone of you SR-2 guys plan on putting it inside a chassis? Just asking because I couldn't leave it on a bench top if it was me (because of my kid) and I can't seem to find any (inexpensive) chassis that will fit this fat boy.

Chilly and Liu Kang also have SR2s.
Biggest setting change in relationship with memory performance and F@H is to run with NUMA off.
NCIX has a cheaper price if you have PP.
I'll be dropping mine inside a Lili A70.
