I saw these at work on MSNBC. They look very cool. The 2 gpu thing is nice, but is that cost affective? My girl has a microATX board with onboard video and that board was cheap so I guess it is. They look very nice over all. I need to spend some time with OSX. I never really gave it a good look because of the high cost of entry.

Watched the keynote and the processing of the unibody is pretty cool.  

My guess is they went with the 2 gpus on the high end to get volume across the line.  

Think OSX is an excellent os (have to admit I'm writing this on a powerbook g4 right now) - but not for tweaking (linux for that) or gaming (windows there)  

Of course, you can Fold on all of them!

Thanks again Davo and Marco  [:D]  

 

I'll drop in the rig this weekend and a post a pic of it nestled in it's new home!

Pretty sure it's CUDA, so nVidia hardware only - with Apple backing OpenCL though, it's probably only a matter of time before there's C programmable GPGPU for ATI cards too.

And thanks again for the congrats Bob - sorry to hear about the power problems . . . in the meantime, maybe just don't use the stove and Fold On instead?!    Wink  

I have not been at home a lot for the last week or so so I have been cuting off the breaker when not there.

Ah, but if it comes down to a choice between food and F@H - you know you gotta go with the folding!  lol

Hey Guys!  Just wanted to let you know the graphics card and Xonar went out today...but Dave posted the wrong info on the Xonar--it's the newer PCI Express Xonar DX, not the PCI version pictured.

 

Thanks Marco!  Seems I remember reading a good review about that one somewhere    [:D]    - can't wait to test it out!

Great pics Bob!  - Marco builds a hot lookin rig!  [H]  

I vote for putting the NB under water!  [Y]  

I'm using the Fusion block on my ASUS board and it does help with the OCing.  With the CPU and NB on a good loop, it really justs gets down to how many volts you want to run (volts hit danger before temps).  

I've read good reviews of the Swiftech chipset block; another one you might want to take a look at is the Danger Den MPC-X38/X48 (a little more expensive though).  

- don't think you'd go wrong with either since the NB is easier to cool.  

Keep sharing your fun!!
