Thread: PSU compatible w/ THUNDER I7505 S2665 - DUAL XEON E7505 PGA603-604

    Default PSU compatible w/ THUNDER I7505 S2665 - DUAL XEON E7505 PGA603-604

    I would like to buy a Tyan THUNDER I7505 S2665 - DUAL XEON E7505 PGA603-604 motherboard I did notice that the specs note: EPS12V (with WS 6-pin) power connectors; with regards to the PSU.

    I currently own a Thermaltake Purepower 680w psu and it looks like it won't be compatible, am I wrong about this???

    The WS 6-pin connector is what has me thinking this. The thermaltake I have has a 4+4-pin +12V Power Connector.

    I dont think it will be compantable, though I can not be 100% sure. If you dont mind me asking, for what reason would you like to purchase this motherboard? You buliding a server?
    If you are looking for some thing alond the lines of dual processors for gaming, dont go to the Xeon line, pick a normal Dual core Intel CPU and motherboard, or better yet get an Athlon X2 and nF4 motherboard, DFI or Asus would do the trick.

    Thanks for the quick response!

    No I am definitely not into gaming. It would be used for music production.

    I am sorry I created multiple threads, I just wanted to get it seen and responded to. Sorry about that.

    Now that I am actualy looking for a 6 pin motherboard connector, I can not find a single powersupply that has one (out of 30 or so "server psu's that I quickly went through). Nor have I ever seen a 6 pin connector except for higher end PCI Express video cards.

    I am pretty sure you could still get better results with a Dual core machine, be it a Dual core Opteron or a Intel 840 or something, It would cost a lot less, and in the case of the dual Opteron, you could probable get damn good production out of it with way less noise, and I know a noisy system is often a problem for music producers... Just a thought.


    My guess is that power supply wont work with that motherboard, are there other possable boards you could choose? Or does that board have all of the options you need for your musical production, SCSI, gigabit LAN, etc.? The only thing I can see that it has over a conventional retail motherboard is Dual Socket, AGP Pro, PCI-X, and SCSI. Most of those things can be conpensated for in a retail motherboard,
    Dual socket: Dual Core.
    AGP Pro: ...... well AGP is good enough, and there is PCI-E
    PCI-X: See above
    SCSI: SATA, while not as good as SCSI it's still more than adiquit, plus who wants big SCSI cables when you can have tiny little SATA cables :)

    I am a little out of my head at the moment, so please excuse any spelling errors or rambles.

    Do a Google search and see if the "WS 6-pin" connector is another name for the PCI-E connectors currently on the market. Here is a little closer look at that area of the motherboard that I found, and it looks like a standard PCI-E port at a glance.

    And as has been pointed out, please make only one thread for a single question. This makes it easier to get you the information you need without having to consult 3 areas to make sure your suggestion hasn't already been given.

    Amd_Lover2004 - Don't get your ports mixed up. This motherboard is specifically designed for a high-end workstation and AGP-Pro is a standard that gives more flexibility in graphics adapters; particularly for those using the CAD specific chipsets. Also, PCI-X is completely different from PCI-E. Again, this is a server board specific standard that has been around far longer than PCI-E and gives enhanced bandwidth over a standard PCI bus. This can come in very handy for SCSI RAID setups, which is one of the things it was designed for.

    I know, I was stating that the more mainstream motherboards can do the job pretty close if not equal to that motherboard, with the newer Slots, for most things anyway. Ive seen average desktops beet average servers many times.

    Plus all of the new CAD video cards are commin out on PCI-E last I heard. I havnt seen a "new" AGP Pro video card in a while. I do own a pentium 3 server board with AGP Pro and dual socket(only one being used currently) but all I was trying to say is that sometimes you can get equal or almost equal proformance from a mainstream motherboard, thats all.
