It’s a pump! It’s a reservoir! It’s lighted, quiet, and looks good!
I was upgrading my 7700K machine to something with a little bit more teeth, but the workload does not scale past 10 core processor load. I was getting non liner performance spikes and valleys on an 18 core system so 10 looks to function well for now. Overall the workstation functions well together, its quiet and can run hard when it needs to. I opted for the fancy lights since I was already a long ways down the rabbit hole of high end performance parts and most of it came with RGB anyways.
This system sits at 4.5GHz, and Turbo's out to 5.1GHz.
It was finally time to upgrade and update monitors. I put in the HP Envy 4k monitor. A lot of people are focused on either color or gaming features, I needed neither so the HP checked the box for 4k, cheap, and only micro bezels. When mounting the monitor I took the slot of the center monitor and I pushed the previous one up. Since I did not want the lower bezel in the way I flipped in 180 degrees so its just out of the way. Nvidia software is handling the divergent resolutions fairly well, but the task bar is a tad confused as to what is going on.
Overall very happy with the machine still. Right now I am putting a lot of spare cycle time into the folding@home project for the CORV19 and related work. I am able to pull about 1.7M points per day, I could do more if I could get a consistent load of CPU, but those are really rare to get the workloads right now but that is fine. I do kind of dream about putting another 2080 on the box, but its rather pointless for the work I am doing, it would functionally just be to fold in off cycles and would not help me with my job at all.
Anyways that is it for today's update, still a rock solid workhorse.
