Jake, why are you giving apple ideas
somedude 13 klukkustundum síðan
I like the idea of a water cooled server, If you remove the heat exchanger from the inside of the server case and pump the coolant to a external heat exchanger it would solve the noise and give you a significant of real estate inside that server.

Add GPU to a water cooled server....oh jesus Linus stop, just stop. Bashing the 1U riser card, which seems foreign to him, because you have to use a half height GPU....The server wasnt built to expect a GPU. Those slots are most likely and almost certainly meant for PCIe network cards or HBA SAS to connect to back end storage.

I worked in HFT software for a bit and I can tell you that they care about MICROSECONDS, so if you can get milliseconds of difference from something as easy as a one-off hardware purchase they're going to jump at it. These are the kinds of companies that fight over rack space so they can reduce the length of their fibre lines by a few centimetres,.

I can see the business logic behind the creation of this server. They can simultaneously broaden their client base and create a better served for elite business clientele. This in turn means much more money for developing high end gaming hardware, to make themselves more competitive.

elrabin 5 dögum síðan
Pretty major downsides compared to other systems on the market designed for HFT. A few companies already have systems designed to "pin" clock speeds at a specific frequency with no jitter. Officially supported by Intel, you're disabling cores and increasing clock speed with the gained thermal overhead. No need for liquid cooling, more robust storage, networking and management options. I don't see this having legs in HFT

No point in using a 1u design where space isn't a concern. They are always too loud to be in the same building as humans. Given LMG's use case, just buy a 4u chassis and build whatever water cooled system you like inside it. You have the room in your rack. 1u only make sense where you have a specific task and getting the most systems capable of that task per cabinet is the most important factor.

If you were going to have water cooled server components wouldn't it be easier to set up the racks with quick disconnects to a master loop that goes down to a bar fridge holding multiple radiators and a pump (thin Honda Civic sized radiators and Davies Craig EWPs). Then there'd be less weight and noise overall and a more consistent temp control while also having enough head room to be expandable.

The benefit of water-cooling a server is you can dump the heat into an industrial heat exchanger *outside* then into the air or a river or the sea rather than your hot aisle. In a real datacenter this just makes heat problems worse :p Has no use outside about 3 racks in the world.

So, you should re-connect that waterloop. Now the heat of the first radiator hits the second radiator and that reduces the temperature difference between air and water on that second part. If you're not using the largest difference possible, you're reducing cooling potential. While it shouldn't be a world of difference (as both surface area and flow remain identical), if the 'cold' side hits the nearest radiator to the cpu last, it should have the best cross-flow design on temperature / flow direction. Highest temperature starts at the back and it works against the flow of cold air to become cold. Rather surprised by this, this is basic approach on almost all cooling designs. You may be able to squeeze a couple extra degrees out of it with that, then again... those fans might push so much air through it won't matter. For that the fan-curve/some measurements on the airflow would be needed, now I can only comment from a distance.

I expected to see a server with pipes running out the back connected to a chiller outside the building. I didn't expect to see a radiator mounted in a 1U case with 300 watts of fans making more noise than a damn jet engine. That's just ridiculous, you might as well just use a desktop since it doesn't even support ECC RAM.
