  • beeee casue dumb asss it is 1100 W peak & it is specifically designed by professionals with proper tuned switching semiconductors. not like that fucking black masterbation box from some cheap assed Taiwanese provider, cos like that's why server tech is more expensive..... they use better parts.... Oh and it is basically FUCKING USELESS for high frequency trading. Why ? BEcauuuseeee HFT is about latency...... or lack of it.... why the fuck would you use a fast CPU for HFT? when the latency is gonna be induced by your fucking 1G network connector (the bottle neck) and as a result your fucking software stack BEFORE you get to your overclocked masturbation CPU?' If this were suitable for HFT it would be using 10G/40G optical connectors. some of the BEST HFT systems have custom FPGA AT THE CABLE IMPLEMENTING THE NETWORK STACK...... LOOKING AT THE BIT TRAFFIC AS IT COMES OVER THE FUCKING WIRE..... the data does not even make it to the "CPU"

  • I like the idea of a water cooled server, If you remove the heat exchanger from the inside of the server case and pump the coolant to a external heat exchanger it would solve the noise and give you a significant of real estate inside that server.

    somedudesomedudeVor 2 Monate
  • Add GPU to a water cooled server....oh jesus Linus stop, just stop. Bashing the 1U riser card, which seems foreign to him, because you have to use a half height GPU....The server wasnt built to expect a GPU. Those slots are most likely and almost certainly meant for PCIe network cards or HBA SAS to connect to back end storage.

  • I worked in HFT software for a bit and I can tell you that they care about MICROSECONDS, so if you can get milliseconds of difference from something as easy as a one-off hardware purchase they're going to jump at it. These are the kinds of companies that fight over rack space so they can reduce the length of their fibre lines by a few centimetres,.

  • Pretty major downsides compared to other systems on the market designed for HFT. A few companies already have systems designed to "pin" clock speeds at a specific frequency with no jitter. Officially supported by Intel, you're disabling cores and increasing clock speed with the gained thermal overhead. No need for liquid cooling, more robust storage, networking and management options. I don't see this having legs in HFT

  • No point in using a 1u design where space isn't a concern. They are always too loud to be in the same building as humans. Given LMG's use case, just buy a 4u chassis and build whatever water cooled system you like inside it. You have the room in your rack. 1u only make sense where you have a specific task and getting the most systems capable of that task per cabinet is the most important factor.

  • If you were going to have water cooled server components wouldn't it be easier to set up the racks with quick disconnects to a master loop that goes down to a bar fridge holding multiple radiators and a pump (thin Honda Civic sized radiators and Davies Craig EWPs). Then there'd be less weight and noise overall and a more consistent temp control while also having enough head room to be expandable.
