Dedicated Server Upgrade

Post by (HHC/229) Dabomb on Tue 25 Aug 2015 - 4:05

Hi guys,

I am over at the datacenter finishing a CPU and GPU upgrade to the dedicated server. Going to a Core i7 4790K and an nVidia GTX 760. Hopefully we'll see a bit of improvement in performance and stability. The server should be back online within the next 15-20 minutes or so (11:30am MDT)

So... hardware upgrade is done, new drivers installed for the 760 and... DCS is being a pain in the ass. Standby for further updates.

It was running an Intel G3420 dual-core 3.2Ghz proc and a GTX 470 GPU.  It is still running 16GB of RAM and a Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD drive.

It is now running the i7 4790K with a GTX 960 (changes were made in the past 24 hours...) Smile  Remember that even if DCS is acting as a dedicated server and it's set to not even render anything on-screen, as ours is, it still requires a DX9-compatible GPU. Madness. Anyway, I figured a decent GPU could only help, even if it DCS isn't currently using much of it. Come 1.5, we should be in a pretty good place.

It was also running on a server-class motherboard (Supermicro X10SLL-F) because I wanted to use ECC RAM and really, really liked the suite of remote management tools it had onboard -- I could power the server on and off remotely, so even a hard crash wouldn't require me to drive to the datacenter.  Unfortunately, that board really didn't care for the more advanced nVidia GPUs.  At all.  Which make sense , since it was never designed to run as a gaming rig.  So now it's running on a more "consumer-friendly" Gigabyte board.  Hopefully it will remain stable and free of any crash that requires the use of my car...

Anyway, I will need to take it down and get it buttoned up and back in the rack in a little bit, but after that, it should definitely be running again from this afternoon on, barring any unforeseen unpleasantness (again).

Do you remember what your ping to the server was? I'm just curious.

No O/C on the new i7.  I want to baseline how it performs as-is for now.

Cool, that's what I figured, nice to get the K if you ever need to bump it up. You're the man.
