Re: recommended hardware configuration

it is about one year later and I need another server. The M2N-SLI Deluxe is doing very well thus, I would buy it also for the new server, but sadly, it is not available anymore. :( So, I have to chose any other board, again with ECC support. I think, I will take the Asus M4N82 Deluxe, but I would li...

Re: recommended hardware configuration

Do you have access to any of the systems with the M2N-SLI Deluxe board and with ECC memory in it?
Do you get also "None" for the Memory Controller Error Correcting Capability?

P.S.
From my experience, there is not allway a relationship between pay grade and competence. :-D

Re: recommended hardware configuration

Hi, here I am again after a few days of vacation. :) I exchanged the memory sticks but had still the problem with the memory, when ECC enabled in the BIOS. So I upgraded the BIOS and it seems to work now. :) But I wonder why dmidecode says: Enabled Error Correcting Capabilities: None Any idea? "# gr...

Re: recommended hardware configuration

Thanks again for your fast answer. :) I'am not sure if I got what you mean. Currently, ECC is diabled in BIOS. So, I enable it and if the system hangs on reboot I just clear the real time clock, enable again ECC in BIOS and boot again. That's it? Is this what you mean? By the way, makes it a differe...

Re: recommended hardware configuration

Hi again, I have now a system as discussed here and the installation went, without any problems. :) Just the reboot after the installation hang as predicted, but that's ok. But, after the installation, when I checked the bios settings with dmidecode, I saw Error Detecting Capabilities: none and Enab...

Re: recommended hardware configuration

I am loking for a stable system. So I have neither preferences for AMD nor Intel. That one, which makes less truble is the best for me. :) But anyway, I think the Asus board is a good choice. I do not need the fastest possible CPU. For me it is like for you, cost vs. performance is an importand crit...

Re: recommended hardware configuration

Thanks for your feedback, WhatsHisName. :) So, M2N-SLI Deluxe seems to be a good AM2 choice, but whats about other sockets? Do you think, that AM2 is the best choice for CentOS4? Because of the CPU. Yes, I mean Windsor. The reason why I tend to Windsor is the biger L1 cache. So I heard they are a bi...

recommended hardware configuration

Hi all, first of all. Yes I used the "search" here in the forum and I also used Google, but what I figured out was not satisfying, thus I try my luck here. :) I need to build a Linux box, there should run a NIS server on it and should be also used for over-night compilation and testing. So there is ...
