Got my Sun Fire V480 today

Unread postby D-EJ915 » Mon Apr 06, 2009 7:25 pm

2x900MHz & 2x1050MHz processors which it configures to 4x900MHz processors. 900 board has 8GB and 1050 board has 4GB for 12GB total :3 It's got an XVR-100 in it too which is pretty fun.

This is the loudest computer I've ever used, it puts the Supermicro 1U racks to shame. Seems to work fine though, I had to disassemble it and take the power lock out as the jackass I bought it from put it into permanent poweroff mode :/ what an ass. Anyway I took it out and now it works great hahaha.

Here's a video of the suction it's got going on, it has metal fans too, first time I've seen those.

Congratulations.
Looks like a nice machine.

I like the pizza box and Indigo2 reverse pyramid. ;)

Probably not as loud as an Onyx2 Rack though ;)

Try 3 racks. 8| Where I used to work, if I was in the machine room, I could literally shout in someone's ear next
to me and they'd still have a hard time hearing what I'd said. The room had a 16-CPU 5-pipe 3-rack Onyx2,
Origin200, OriginVault, 4 x Sun V880s, a network rack and some insane air conditioning that could suck the
topcrust off the moon.

Refering to the inverted pyramid of machines, do you live in a gravitational anomaly?

Didn't know an indy could support that much weight on top of it.

Don't knock the indy. It's a hard worker (even if it's just holding up stuff).

As long as it's resting on the edges I think it'll hold quite a bit. It is mostly metal, after all...

Ah, those look like the same style as an Origin 3k C-brick. Especially the 48 volt part. If they're running full speed in a C-brick they're quite loud.

Ah they have speed adjustment? These runn full speed all the time :/ Might try to find some way to get some slower ones and see how much the cpu temp changes.
