Default Re: Paxville or Bust! The Supermicro X6DA8 Project

The showdown:

System 1:
Supermicro X6DAL-XG
2x single-core 3.6GHz Irwindale CPU's
12gb ECC DDR1
GeForce 9800GT
3ware 9550 w/BBU
2x 2.5" 10k RPM velociraptors in a RAID-0

Novabench: CPU score of 277


System 2:
Supermicro X6DAI-G2
2x dual-core 2.8GHz Paxville CPU's
16gb ECC DDR2 memory
Nvidia Quadro NVS 450
Adaptec 2405 SAS controller
2x 3.5" 15k RPM Cheetah SAS in a RAID-0

Novabench: CPU score of 331

CrystalDiskMark: I think I need to check controller settings, the write speeds should be much higher.

System 3:
Supermicro X6DA8
2x single-core 3.8GHz Irwindale CPU's
16gb ECC DDR2
Quadro FX4800
Adaptec 2120S U320 SCSI
Single 3.5" 15k RPM cheetah in JBoD

Novabench: I guess that 200MHz made no difference, CPU score is the same as System 1.

CrystalDiskMark: I will rerun this when I pick up a couple more drives to test some RAID configs.
