I don't think the Kraken wrapper would help in 2P cases, from what I have seen is more for the the 4P system. For me to get those chips at 3.6 I would need water cooling, in my case probably 2 x H60. It starts to become complicated. I'll look how feasible this is. But what about getting just simple smp units in my case? I would have to run 2 separate VMs with each one with -SMP 12 flag?if I remember correctly you would need an OC ~3.4GHz+ to do the 8101s which those chips should do easy. Having The Kraken installed help alot...
True that thekraken was optimized for MP, but it should still help DP systems quite a bit. It even helps UP systems in many cases.I don't think the Kraken wrapper would help in 2P cases, from what I have seen is more for the the 4P system.
I actually picked up two identical systems, They are Supermicro X7DWE boards with 2xL5420's and 2x2GB dimm's. I have done the BSEL mod to them bumping them from 2.5GHz to 3.0GHz. Currently one of them is having some problems with heat, but I think I just need to clean and re-seat the heatsink's. Each system can produce between 15K and 30K, depending on the WU's, typically I see about 20K.What specs?
I recently got my hands on a D5400XS and a bunch of S771 Xeons to play with this winter, everything from Dempsey to Harpertown. Been wanting one of those for a long time! Too bad used QX9775's are still a mint.
