Need to figure out the balance between my cpu and ram (I need 320gb ram)

xxlxxxlx Member

Im using an i7-4790k with 32gb ram. Im using 55% of the cpu, and 100% of the ram. So if this is the case, what kind of cpu would balance my use of cpu and ram with 320gb or similar?

    Not sure what you are trying to say but i7 can't have 320g ram. You need to move to Xeon for that amount.

    666GB RAM will solve everything though. That I Know for sure.

    Yea, Im asking what kind of cpu goes well with 320gb ram

    Well, google around. Look for old E5-xxxx v3 which is Haswell in desktop.

    Know that you won't get the high single core performance but get more cores unless you go for E3 which isn't often found in servers.

    666 is still the best answer. 666.

    What about the Epyc listed here?

    Do you know any more deals for servers with 200+gb ram under $200?

  • deankdeank Member, Troll

    Don't kid yourself at that budget with the latest hardware. You look for old rags.

    kind of hard for me to find them paired with large amounts of ram.

  • deankdeank Member, Troll

    Normally, people don't need that much ram. It's either badly coded programs or a bad policy of throwing money at problems and hoping it'd stick.

    You need to prepare paying for it if you really want it.

  • Thats funny. My program is getting errors when I use less ram so I decided fuck it, ill just buy more.

    Its using 50% more than it should, but these costs dont effect me much. Im sick of fixing problems.

  • deankdeank Member, Troll

    For that much RAM, you need a really high-end motherboard to go for it.

    Ask around for custom setup with older CPU. Some hosts might have it lying around in dust.

  • Da fuq? I have never seen a program that needs that much ram. I could run the entire server in a ram disk on 320 GB ram.

    No matter what you do that is going to be insanely priced. Fix the damned program and quit wasting shit.

    May as well buy older model servers and colo them. Getting a 256GB-384GB RAM server is going to be pretty high recurring. You can find older model dual E5-2000 (16-20 core) series CPU servers with 256GB RAM for like $1200 on eBay in the US. Find one with a motherboard that supports 384GB.

    Instead of increasing the RAM, downgrading the CPU seems to be the smarter thing to do and also cheaper.

    thats pretty good, but there is no way I can use 500gb ram with only 4 e7's

    Interesting, I kind of feel like renting a server though. Ill be travelling a lot in the future and may not be able to maintain a server, would have to ask my brother or friends to fix things for me when Im gone.

    Is RAM speed crucial?

    It's a bit old school, but consider the Ohaus triple-beam balance.

    Not a bad idea, I was just thinking about that. Ill try it soon, I just dont want to freeze the whole server right now, that would be really bad.

    If you
    Think you need 320GB ram, you can probably tune it to fit into 256GB.

    Hetzner(Serverbidding auctions) has 256GB E5-16xx for 100 euros/m range (used to be as low as 66/m IIRC until someone snatched it up during the unlimited gigabit change )

    Well, he currently has 32gb. I don't get the logic of suddenly expanding 10x resources of what one used to have but, hey, this is LET.

    Idling 320GB is more blessed than idling just 32GB.

    Would that e5 really be able to handle 4x what an i7-4790k can do? Im worried that I wont be able to use all the ram on that server.
