I never really went anywhere -- Just been hammered with work & family (life in General)

Lets see--

Got married in April 2012
Spent 9 months winding up parents estate
Moved house twice
Built the dual xeon November 2012 (it died- I will explain later)
Started new business & got really busy
Jan 2013 moved house (again)
No time to unpack --back to work
March 2013 -- finally get to really study & asses the xeon
April 2013 Wife pregnant.
Back to work (leave the scene of the crime)
Late 2013 many fights with computer parts suppliers over xeon
Move house 26/1/2014 (yet again)
My daughter born 30/1/2014
Back to work
Last few weeks -- finally got to set up my home office & unpack my computer stuff
Last few days -- finally piece together the improbable chain of events that had left me with a $8000 boat anchor instead of a dual xeon
Yesterday -- Xeon back in action!!!

I am stressing the xeon ATM (very carefully) -- Core temps look ok -64 to 68 deg with all 32 running PPS -- One thing I found -- 2687's really don't like anything looking at them - almost every hardware monitor program gives you a BSOD (and a bloody heart attack as well) the instant you switch it on -- only exception is the AIDA64 which is not free but works really well.

I will let you know how it goes

What sort of time does a PPS LLR take these days?? -- I have filled the CPU cores - looks like about 1 hour + --

Hi All

Still kicking about -- Trying to get back to do a bit crunching sometime soon.

I might have finally solved the problem with the 2 x 2687W's (only taken me 18 months) -- I will give you all the details later of how the fickle finger of fate really F@##D me with the beast -- I will be stress testing it in the next few days

Cheers

DoES

well the big rig developed a problem after 24hrs which got progressively worse-- then a total crash

lot of swear words later I found the No 1 CPU socket pins damaged -- very hard to see unless you get a magnifying glass (which was my last resort)--

then I remembered that the plastic cover on No 1 CPU was skewed when I unpacked it -- didn't think much of it at the time

then I closely inspected No 2 socket -- yep bit of damage there as well -- so back to the drawing (mother) board -- shit happens I 'spose

well I turned all 32 cores loose last night ---big surprise in the WU time spread -anywhere from 18 to 27 hrs -- not a very fair assessment yet though as there has been countless restarts loading drivers & updating etc etc--

One thing I note is that this build has had the most trouble free start up I have seen in years -- I think ASUS might sway me off GIGABYTE MB's

I will get some pics posted in a day or so

some light reading.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collatz_conjecture


you are correct -This is the basis for the number sequence but with a little twist -- The condition I imposed was any number that required more than 100 iterations to reduce to 1 -- you get odd things & strange sequence numbers when you test numbers greater than 9232 -- ie 7,777,777 has 98 iterations yet 777,777 has 154 iterations -- I was curious about finding the point where all higher numbers required more than 100 iteration.( EDIT--- 1.26765060022823E+30)

some time ago (I was bored) I built a spread sheet that you can enter any number and see the actual steps (iterations) of the Collatz sequence- (I was extremely bored)- I remember reading some obscure info that the iteration steps are often palindromes --

that would be it -- 27 gives it away --- lets see who picks up the next in the series.

Rather than hijack a thread thought it might be interesting to try out a few number puzzles --

Whats the next number in this sequence --

27, 31, 41, 47, 54, 55, ??


As a bit of a rough pointer --- I tested all positive integers from 1 to ?? -- the numbers given conform to a special set -- the fact that 27 is the first in the series (which is infinite) should ring bells for some.
