Looking at EOI for an entire 4.5 pb farm fully plotted.
42U rack with
8 x 45 Drives I-60 Drive Chassis’
each system has the following:
AsRock ROMED8-2T motherboard
AMD EPYC 7702P 64-Core
Noctua NH-U9 TR4-SP3 CPU Cooler (Dual Fans)
4 x LSI9305-16i HBA Card
2 x 128gb M386AAG40AM3-CWE(DDR4)
60x 12tb drives (one rig has 30 only)
2x 128gb sticks as stated in the post.
drives are 1.5yrs old (still under warranty)
Power wise i cannot remember as its been a while since i plotted but it think it was somewhere around the 2kw mark and running solar so majority of it was free.
buy yes the idea was to plot on this then migrate to lower consumption systems.
