after all these years, its time to retire the Xeonster .
this was put together when the Xeon Quad cores first came out.
It has been under a Koolance liquid cooling system since I first turned it on...never over 115 degrees F. has been dedicated to LHC for its entirety and been kept running in honour of our lost friend James Powers.

he would say now ...get rid of that old iron ...get more better shit.

Keep Crunching . o7

Thanks a lot for your dedication, and for letting us use this machine, which gained ~3M credit!
Happy crunching,
