With enough cores and flops for the entire family and more to spare
Build was almost derailed becuase lack of EPYC compatible CPU cooler in Toronto Canada....found the ONLY one in all of Ontario on Friday....Everything housed in a Lian-Li PCV-2120x case that I bought in 2013 which will last for many many more years to come!
This thing DEMOLISHES my old Dual CPU XEON platinum (2x28cores) and consumes 200W less power and I can run it 100% load without turning my room into a sauna!

EPYC Cinebench R20 - 19589
Dual XEON PLatinum R20- 14525

Monero HASH EPYC - 43K
DUAL XEON Platinum Hash - 21K

Jealous. Would love to have one, but it's too much for my blood and I don't use it professionally, so hard to justify dropping couple of grand on it when I can get 3950x for nearly quarter of the price.

God, this has to be the most hilarious thing I've seen this year :D :D
The thing is you would never see someone try that on a intel platinum dual.
Because Intel Scalable is serious business. (trying to be serious.. :cool: )

It takes a AMD user to go "Here hold my beer 'LEEROY JINKENS'" and pull that off.

(again me being sarcastic... don't take any of my comments here seriously...)

Nice rig!

Have you seen this video of it's little brother? Kind of a weird video, but it's somewhat entertaining to watch.

The 3990X is not the EPYC 7702 little brother, he is the big bully....lol

Selling my dual platinum rig funded all the new AMD hardware...

Do you have any concerns with it running at 88c? I saw this same thread in another forum and a few people mentioned the high temps.

Smooth, OP. That's a lot of Monero hashpower. I don't think it's really "worth it" solely from that perspective, but I have a feeling you have more in mind for that rig than just mining XMR.

teh machine!
can you please share your workload? daily hour distribution, peaks etc? do you have power distribution within day/week ?
thanks

I now have a 120mm fan blowing at the VRMs (85C vs 70C) and the core temp according to the bios never exceeds 70C

This machine is multi-purpose so mining is only part of its job, hence I do not use the traditional ROI calculations. I've been mining monero and BTC for a long time so most of my hardware are all self-funded.

Our current COVID electricity rate is 12.5C/KwH. This rig already consumes 300W less than the comparable dual intel platinums.

How much was the processor? I know that you sold your old gear. Google shows that to be a very expensive chip. Yes, I'm jealous. I couldn't afford a platinum setup, either. Must be nice.

This chip is only USD$2150 and I got the shaft because of the low CAD:USD exchange rate. The two XEONs was sold for more than that so it helped cover the cost of the motherboard.
