Hi AZ, what FSB are you running? You have fine XP-M sample, my XP-M 2400 overclock to 2162@166 1.55V measures 132W at the wall socket when running folding@home. The motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2 with only a single barracuda IV.

Sorry, to interrupr interesting discussion, but...

You need to know the phase relationship between the current and voltage in a AC circuit before you can workout the power. Use the Kill-A-Watt meter :D

This seems to correlate pretty good with the other postings above. I was really surprised to see the big numbers from the Biostar M7NCG board. I think the only conclusion that can be reached is that power draw can vary a lot depending on the components used! That looks about right, one of my blades...

Does anyone know the power drawn at the socket for a A64 3000? This will probably give some idea of power requirement of the A64. My P4 3.0C with 1 seagate barracuda IV 80G, 1 seagate barracuda 36ES2 18G, Ti500 and a SS300FT draws 155W when folding.

You probably can but a easier way is run it of flash - I assumed you want to remove the noisy hard disk. I run smoothwall on a flash disk in a compaq SFF P2 350Mhz. The only moving component in the system is a 8cm used to cool the PSU and CPU so it is very quiet - not silent thou.

Well, if I were to expand on the "short" answer, I'd note that you've gotten a diskless workstation working, but you don't actually "use" it as a workstation. Your ultimate goal is to use it in a server farm, of course, which is as far removed from "workstation" as it gets. The idea of a diskless f...

IMO the simpliest way to explore diskless workstations in Linux is to install k12ltsp . It is basically Redhat Fedora Core 1 with LTSP 4.0 wrapped up into one distro. I have tried it but my goals are to turn it into a diskless folding farm. Whether such setup is suitable for you will depend on the a...

ntpd.
I think LTSP 3.0 is based on redhat 7.X, if you can find a compiled version for that platform you may be able to just drop it in the /opt/ltsp tree.
