Hi everyone, Today, I got a package with Up Tape in it: I’ve been expecting to receive my UP AI Plus that I backed on Kickstarter last year. The project got several delays due to Intel CPU shortages, but last week, I received a tracking number from AAEON, which makes the UP Board and this just popped up today. It initially should have been delivered on Thursday. I’ll be opening the box and seeing if this is definitely the UP…

Hi everyone, Today, I received the two Intel Xeon X5670 that I ordered on Monday. These two CPUs replaced the previous 2 Intel Xeon X5570 CPUs. Below, I show you some photos changing the CPUs in my servers; the CPU specs, and running BOINC with them: Let’s Start! First, let’s remove the server cover. Here’s how it looks internally: Here’s where the CPU’s and RAM Modules are located. We need to take out the plastic cover: We can see the CPU…

CPU upgrades coming in the following days!

Hi everyone, Today, I made the decision to upgrade my server CPUs. Currently, it runs using 2x Intel Xeon X5570, which are Quad-Core CPUs running at 2.93Ghz. These CPUs consume 95W each, and has Hyper-Threading, meaning each CPU has 8 threads. This means the server currently has 8 Cores and 16 Threads. In the following days, it will be running with 2x Intel Xeon X5670, which uses the same socket and are compatible with the hardware. The Intel Xeon X5670…

My new BOINC Crunching Machine

My new BOINC Crunching Machine

Hi everyone, Today, I’ll show you my new machine that I’ll be using to crunch BOINC tasks. The machine is a used Dell PowerEdge R710. It has 2x Intel Xeon X5570 clocked at 2.93Ghz. It didn’t had a GPU except for the integrated basic GPU, so I added the ATI Radeon HD 2400 PRO that I was previously using as an eGPU (external GPU) in my laptop. The Intel Xeon X5570 is a Quad-Core processor with Hyper Threading. This makes…
