I just installed dual 2800+ Bartons (upgraded from dual 1200 Palominos.... woohoo!! ) on my Tyan Thunder K7 (S2462) motherboard, and I was wondering...

(1) whether the temperature they're running at (average 50 degrees Celsius) is too high, and
(2) whether I needed to increase my power supply (currently 460 watts).


thanks a lot.

50°C should be fine

If it is running absolutely stable, there is no reason to upgrade the Powersupply, IMO.
Unless you're planning to add some fast HDD's or some other power-hungry devices...

thanks a lot.

i've got the following 3 hard drives in there now:

18GB Seagate Cheetah 15,000rpm Ultra160 SCSI
36GB Seagate Cheetah 15,000rpm Ultra160 SCSI
120GB IBM Deskstar 180GXP (ic35l120aw207) 7,200rpm ATA-6

other than that, a few cards, USB mouse, USB tablet, USB web cam, and a DVD drive.

you think that's ok?

(oh, forgot to mention.... it's completely stable right now.)

I'm not exactly sure what the power rating on the hard drives are. But I don't think its anything above 30watts. Anyway, if you say that your system is running stable right now then you shouldn't have any problems.

sorry, i don't know what a voltage regular is, but now you've gotten me worried! can you post a link to what you heard about the voltage regulars?

all i did was upgrade my bios to the latest revision (2.14) and popped in my processors. everything is working fine so far, although i thought the speed gain would have been more substantial. it's only noticeably faster when rendering. should everything be running twice as fast?

just got off the phone with Tyan tech support, and they said the 2800+ has been thoroughly tested on the s2462, and it is fully supported. they said there are no known issues with the voltage regulators or anything else for that matter.

the only thing they mentioned was to be sure to upgrade the bios to 2.14.... that was all.

in any case, let me know if you hear otherwise.
