Scientific Computation System Build Advice - Motherboard, GPU, etc. [Solved] - Systems. Yavinbase, In my view, a scientific computational /simulation use is incompatible with a high performance gaming use- trying for high performance in both uses will end in disappointment in both uses. For scientific use- MATLAB for example, for error-free statistical and simulation - precise waveforms, graphs, the best results are obtained with ECC error-correcting RAM, requiring a Xeon CPU, and suitable motherboard. As Xeons are designed for long periods of continuous use they have locked multipliers and can not be overclocked significantly.

I think there is some latitude to raise the voltages, but there goes the design reliability. ECC RAM does continuous parity checks and so the latency is lower than for gaming RAM. As for GPU's, if your software uses viewports, a Quadro or Firepro is necessary to run the special drivers. These cards also have error correction and there can be a substantial benefit with some programs with CUDA acceleration and GPU coprocessing. Cheers, BambiBoom. H80 / H80i / H90 / H100 / H100i / H110 Case Compatibility Thread (Page 1 for full listings) ***NOTE - REFERENCE H80i & H100i COOLERS*** Please Read I will now include the new "i" Series coolers. They are almost the same with regards to size which let's face it, is all the matters to this thread. The only noticeable difference is that due to the new thicker tubes, the reservoir on the end of the radiator has been increased very slightly.

I haven't seen a single setup where this would make a difference. I am waiting for clarification that the tubes are the same length. From now on, when a link is specifically to an "i" series cooler, I will name it as such I know there are threads for the H80 & H100 coolers, and threads for individual cases.

Please keep in mind this is only based on the info provided by other forum users and I accept no liability for any mistakes! I will keep this page updated in the first post and summarise all the info, all I require is the info from you via PM or in the thread to include: H80 & H80i Thermaltake LIAN Li CaseLabs TA-D2 Tight squeeze, but fits - LINK. *PICS* Corsair H100 in 600T. Best CPU Cooler Roundup Review Feat. Corsair, Cooler Master, Noctua, Phanteks, Zalman. Navigation: A Closer Look Corsair H100i Here’s a look at the Corsair H00i. As you can see from the box, it’s a high end AIO water cooler sporting a 240mm radiator.

Cracking open the packaging, we get some documentation along with all the mounting hardware necessary to install the cooler. Here’s a look at the fans included with the H100i. These fans are optimized for high static pressure and are capable of spinning at up to 2,700 RPM. Diving further into the box, we also get the radiator/CPU block assembly. Let’s also take a look at the CPU block as well. Unlike any cooler I’ve seen previously, the H100i includes a mini-USB port as well as a Corsair Link port for interfacing with other Corsair devices. On the other side of the waterblock, there’s two ports for connecting fans. However, by connecting the fans to the pump, I did run into the issue of the stock fans making a high pitched squeal while in operation. Let’s go ahead and install the H100i. About the Author Sam Chen Editor-in-Chief. Overclocking. Overclocking is the process of making a computer or component operate faster than the clock frequency specified by the manufacturer by modifying system parameters (hence the name "overclocking").

Operating voltages may also be changed (increased), which can increase the speed at which operation remains stable. Most overclocking techniques increase power consumption, generating more heat, which must be dispersed if the chip is to remain operational. Aim[edit] The purpose of overclocking is to increase the operating speed of given hardware. The trade-offs are an increase in power consumption and fan noise, the system can become unstable if the equipment is overclocked too much, and the risk of damage due to excessive overvoltage or heat generation. Many people overclock their hardware to improve its performance. Computer components that may be overclocked include processors (CPU), video cards, motherboard chipsets, and RAM.

Consideration[edit] Cooling[edit] Corsair white 600t. Asus Desktop 16GB Memory 1TB Hard Drive CM6870US01. ASUS CM6870-US-3AB Desktop PC. This review is from: ASUS CM6870-US-3AB Desktop PC Intel Core i7 3770 (3.40GHz) 16GB DDR3 2TB HDD Capacity Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit Pros: Fast computer, many options for disk configuration and expansion. Cons: I've found this computer will randomly lock up - meaning suddenly, completely unable to do ANYTHING.

Hard boot is the only option. This can be anywhere from once a week to several times a day, and often happens when there is no activity (by user) for several hours. I have it configured for RAID-0, and the implementation of this on board is not good. I can not, and would not, recommend this computer. Another con: No hard reset button. Other Thoughts: This computer was quite a disappointment, as I generally like ASUS products. Manufacturer Response:Dear Stickman,Thank you for choosing the Essentio CM6870-US-3AB desktop. HP Pavilion 27xi Review & Rating. There's something about a frame with no bezel that catches your eye, which is one reason why we're starting to see more and more monitors sporting the "floating screen" design. One such model, the HP Pavilion 27xi, features a 27-inch IPS panel and an ultra-thin cabinet with silver accents.

In addition to its pleasing aesthetics, this monitor delivers great color and good grayscale quality and provides the wide viewing angles that IPS technology is famous for. Its glossy screen can be reflective in certain lighting environments and its feature set is nothing to write home about, but at $340 it's a good deal for a big-screen monitor that offers both style and performance. Design and Features As with the AOC i2757fh, the HP 27xi uses a bezel-less design that makes the 27-inch panel seem larger than it is. The 1.25-inch bottom bezel sports a brushed aluminum finish and has an HP logo in the center and six touch sensitive button, including the power switch, on the right.

Once again Intel sets the pace in competition for performance and power efficiency with the 3rd Generation Intel Core processors, codenamed Ivy Bridge. Built on the market-leading previous generation Sandy Bridge architecture, the state-of-the-art Ivy Bridge not only continues the excellence in all aspects with Intel Hyper-Threading technology, Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 and Smart Cache, but pushes the pace a step farther with groundbreaking 22nm 3D transistor technology, which delivers an unprecedented combination of performance and power efficiency, and a couple of key refinement. The built-in visual is another leap offering you enhanced media and graphics. The Ivy Bridge IGP also supports DirectX 11 and OpenCL 1.1 to deliver incredibly detailed gaming and better heterogeneous computing performance.
