#2465030 ULTRABEAST! 2 x 980Ti's / 2 x E5-2697v2 CPUs / Geekbench 59,104 Faste...

Posted by PunkNugget on 18 July 2017 - 03:48 AM

Well it looks like my motherboard came back and the day it came back, guess who contacted me? That's right, Andrew Kern. Really grateful that we had a chance to communicate and work things out. He also made some time to help me with my situation and although I'm still facing some issues with only being able to use 4 RAM slots and not all 16 of them, it's still up an running with all cores working and at least one Titan X GPU and works now. Got a recent Geekbench of 49,488. Not bad, still needs some fixing though... http://browser.geekb...kbench3/8408188  Couldn't have done this without Andrew's help. Thanks again Andrew! Hope you enjoy your gift. Also, thanks to you too Baldy, I really appreciate you too for making effort reaching out to me to want to help me, so again, thanks! I now have to possibly turn in the board back to Supermicro to have them look at the board again. Hopefully they can find out what the issue is. We'll see what happens when it comes back and fi...

Tomorrow when I get the board, I will go into my BIOS (finally) and make the necessary (proper) changes this time to see if my updated SSD and my new install SSD work. If they do great, if not, I will let you know either way. Thanks...

They're referring to 4k sector size. http://www.insanelym...eady/?p=2377304 Had a good laugh .. Well, I didn't know, but glad you had fun at my lack of knowledge. Aside from that what do you think of the build?

Hi Everyone, it's been about 5 years since The HACKINBEAST (my prior hackintosh Dual CPU / Triple GPU PC build). Introducing The ULTRABEAST! It was a 2+ year project that was finally finished about 3 months ago. Unfortunately for whatever reason it has now stopped working. The initial install when Andrew Kern (RampageDev.com) and I used (El Capitan) worked fine. The only problem though was it would freeze every 2 to 3 hours and I'd have to retstart my system. It only happened when I used all 3 x 28" 4K monitors that are caused the freezing issue. When I ran one 28" 4K monitor it never froze, using El Captain, but when using 3 x 4K monitors together, it when the freezing issue happened every 2 to 3 hours. After several months of going back and forth figuring out what the issue was, Andrew felt it may be a possible memory leak in the 980 Ti GPU's. We had to wait for an Nvidia to supply an update. Andrew reached out me to let me know about the update (in April). We insta...

Yes I'm "retired" from hosting MacMod of the Month at this point, as I have a very busy schedule with my business. I am however still working on a new hackintosh setup that will hopefully be able to utilize a Dual CPU setup (like my current Hackinbeast). I'll keep everyone posted on the progress… :)
