Default It's Alive!

In keeping with my avatar's (professor Johann Steamhead) steampunk theme, my own mechanical steam powered 4 headed monster is alive and folding!
Now if I can only figure out how to use IPMI from a windows 7 system to remotely monitor this box...

Alas, no shots during build.
Hardware Specs:
  • Haf 932 Advanced Case (note, have to bend some tabs and drill and tap holes to fit MB. Also note to self; place PWR supply, PCIe card and Heatsink on motherboard and align board to case BEFORE drilling holes!)
  • Tyan S8812 4P G34 Motherboard
  • 4 X AMD 6128 8 core 2.0GHz CPU's
  • 4 X Noctua U12D0 Heat Sinks
  • 8 X G-Skill DDR3 16GB quad channel (4x4GB) (128 GB total, I'm using for statistics classes)
  • Antec 1200 HCP power supply (had it laying around)
  • WD 1TB hard drive

Setup per musky's instructions Ubuntu Desktop Installation Guide for F@H - [H]ard|Forum
  • Ubuntu desktop 64 bit OS
  • Kraken wrapper
  • Langouste proxy
  • HFM monitor
  • Don't have the IPMI set up or know how yet.
Don't know the PPD yet, project 6901 is averaging 10 minutes 5 seconds per frame. Doesn't seem right (very slow?). Will have to deal with it later. Don't have the HFM setup properly yet and I'm going to bed soon.

Nice work! Musky's guide is a lifesaver isn't it!

Case is starting to look like Swiss cheese?

So 11.04 (or equiv.) is installed? Then all you're missing is xrdp (Griffon's IT Library Linux Ubuntu Remote Desktop Connection against Ubuntu 10.10) to allow W7's Remote Desktop Connection to see the Linux box. You'll need the rig's name, the username you specified and the password associated with the account.

When I log into xrdp, I choose the "console" option. The password is created from the xrdp setup.

hfm works the same way. If you followed Musky's how-to, then you have created a "fah" folder. Here's how my hfm link looks like, with the computer name being FOLDING-LINUX:
\\FOLDING-LINUX\fah\

As for IPMI, you must connect a network cable to the appropriate network port (see manual) on the backpanel. Then from your router, find the ip address that was assigned to your IPMI port (using the MAC address will help). By default, BMC works via DHCP. Once found, use IE to connect to the IPMI webapp. I believe the username / password is admin / admin. From the app, you can control the rig, connect virtual DVD players, keyboard, mouse. Install Java, and you can access the BIOS live through the viewer.

Nice thing about BMC / IPMI is that as long as you have power to the board (but not powered up), IPMI will work. Power up, BIOS access and changes can be made Live without a kvm.

Any other questions, just ask.

edit: 6901 ppd from the Horsemen:

Project ID: 6901
Core: GRO-A5

Current WU being folded is also a 6901, and tpf is 10 min, 24 sec.

Nope, not from quad octocores.
10e and 4Door can chime in, and provide ppd for 6168s and 6174s. But cost becomes a huge factor, times 4...

Too sexy for ESXi! Nice idea mounting the top 230mm fan externally.
