Clusterboard n00bie...

Hi All...

I mentioned the "clusterboard" to my other community
Porteus ("modular" Slackware) in this project thread...
https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=7842

This is an amazing product.  And I'm glad I found it. 

I look forward to learning from and contributing to this unique community.


Best Regards

Is that an battery power dram rig on the right? I love them, they still make them? :-)
It just registers as a SATA ?2? drive or something?
Also isn't the ram placed wrong in that thing? I would you would need to even out the dimms on the left and right of the controller. (notice the yellow dimm slots)

One hint.. you may want to turn the clusterboard a quarter so the coolers can blow between the modules.
If you really use them they do get hot. (or there are coolers on the left we don't see)

Nice job. Cables aren't that bad, I've seen worse.
Started using FreeBSD at version 2.0 but really started using it at around version 6.4. 
If it doesn't do what you want; hack it until it does!

Thanx...

I have the 200mb/sec (9010ba).  I plan
to get the 400mb/sec (9010) ramdrive.

It's maximum  capacity is 32gb of DDR2
800mhz Non-ECC... Non-buffered ram.
The OEM claims 64gb (but 8gb rails aren't available)

Bank (0) on the right side is loaded w/16gb
and it registers on the drive's LED.

I will be loading bank (1) soon.

The device is not listed on the ACARD (OEM)
website but is sold as new on eBay and Amazon.

@ the left top and bottom are dual side exhaust fans.

The Casetronic 1u chassis power supplies @ right top
and bottom also exhaust air out the front of the case.

I use this chassis w/ this rack2tower stand.
https://www.racksolutions.com/rack-to-tower-1u.html

I could turn the board but the Ethernet would
be blocked by the PCI slot or the exhaust fan.

And finally...

I'm considering combining the AsRock x470 itx/ac Ryzen 5 2400G
x86 Vega gpu frontend with a Pine64 "clusterboard" headless backend...

For now I'm using the AsRock QC5000 APU as
a frontend until I get this Ryzen 2400g APU.

I should have all 7 Sopine modules by next week.
I also picked up 7 MicroSD cards.

Now I have to reach out to the folks @ Alpine Linux
to see if I can get a version for the Sopine.
(...they have one for the Raspberry Pi)
Dodgy I do NOT have the "right" to tell anyone what they should do...
but I reserve the "right" to tell them what they should "consider".

I just received my cluster board and seven spine modules. I'm slightly confused by the two large 15W 10 Ohm load resisters which I received with my board. Anyone care to enlighten me about what they may be for?

Dummy loading for a ATX power supply if it needs it. Since the sopine is only using the 5v line, and a lot of ATX/computer power supplies need the 12v and/or 3.3v lines to have a minimum loading on them in order for the power supply to regulate properly/stay running, pine64 supply the power resistors "just in case you need them" Wink
