Still if you look at the system in total(with mobo, cpu, ram, hd and cooling fans) it looks like the combination of 780G and 4850e gives a lower total, iaw this page/review:http://hothardware.com/Articles/AMD-780G-Chipset-and-Athlon-X2-4850e-Preview-/?page=12


In contrast to the info from intel based platforms here:http://www.legitreviews.com/article/690/13/


But the E7200 did get a good review from Legit, and it have a lower power consumtion than other intel cpu, but it looks like it is still 48w higer idle and 18w at 100% load than the AMD 780G setup.

Regarding the Gigabyte GA-73PVM-S2 ( VGA/DVI/HDMI + opt SPDIF + eSATA + 1394a), I have been warned against that combination of intel and nvidia due to some issues in the south bridge, some mobos gives repeating blue screens.... :P
The ASUS P5GC  - 6 PCI slots, looks great with its six pci slots, verry rare these days anyway :o

Do comment on this ;D

Well one of the things that will help out on the power consumption front is that shortly the Catalyst ATA driver should support MPEG2/H.264 content playback in hardware on 780G and above... once this is the case the need for faster processors should not be there ;-)

Okey, that would be very nice, so the 780G is maybe one of the best choice for LMCE for the future also.


Another test here for the 4850e here: http://www.tweaktown.com/articles/1400/11/amd_athlon_4850e_780g_as_htpc_platform/index.html





Now my setup looks like this(after som reading off reviews on mobo's):

Chassis:           My older tower
CPU:               AMD Athlon 64 X2 4850E
Cooler for CPU: CNPS8700 NT http://www.zalman.com/ENG/product/Product_Read.asp?Idx=278
Memory:          Corsair TWIN2X DDR2 4096MB (2x2048MB)
HDD:               Samsung Spinpoint F1 1 TB
Power supply:   Seasonic S12-II 380W
Mainboard:       M3A-H/HDMI http://no.asus.com/products.aspx?modelmenu=1&model=2129&l1=3&l2=149&l3=639&l4=0

Did also look at the ECS A780GM-A mobo, but it had some issues with the onboard sound chip + bios issues.... To bad though, it had eSATA port :( that I could use with my external HDD.

Edit1
Did find many good review's on Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H, asus page here http://www.gigabyte.eu/Products/Motherboard/Products_Overview.aspx?ProductID=2758 and rewiev here http://www.legitreviews.com/article/676/12/, though this is only an microATX redused with one PCI and one PCIe, it has eSATA... bit of puzzle for me. Have to think about it for a while :P

Another test of Phenon here; http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/2008/07/24/amd-phenom-x4-9350e/13

Seems like there is no need for a quad core as long there is no need for cpu accelerated 1080 playback.

But from these tests, it looks like core 2 duo have the lowest power consumption and highest performance in any condition.... But the 4850e have 20w more at idle than 9350e in the HTPC Power Consumption senario, so it is maybe a bit cooler than core 2 duo :-\

You will need to install the ATI drivers as described in the Wiki currently. They work perfectly under UI2 + Overlay but do not support UI2 + Alpha Blending yet. With UI2 + Overlay they perform as well as the nVidia drivers in our experience.

That sounds very well, I think I will give it a try ;D

In our experience Dual Core is more than enough for Cores currently - I cant see any need for Quad Core in even the biggest installations (8-10 MD's). Both of your Processor choices seem way over the top... and will generate large amounts of heat and use a lot of energy in operation. Remember a Core has to be on 24-7. We have Cores built around the AMD 6400 processor and have not found any situation where we have felt it was being stretched at all.

Yes I am worried about the heat, and I found this test page here:
http://www.legitreviews.com/article/735/13/
That show 9350e have a ide consumption that is a bit higer than Q9300.... :o


Did't find any info on AMD 6400 CPU that you refer to, but I did find AMD Athlon 64 X2 4850E or 4050E. Maybe one of these should fit nicly with the 780G mobo :P it has 45w TDP.

Thanks for your replay Andrew, appreciate it :)

When you say that the ATI drivers are working, is that out of the box or do I have to install them like the wiki says?

Do you think that a quad cpu is overkill for a core, will it just be well of wite x2?


My other conserne is heat emission, witch of my to setup examples here will be the one that makes less heat under regular use(not peak operations)

Got some input from another forum that there is a issue with nForce6xx and intel CPU. Also  XFX nForce 630i+GF7150 does not support 45nm intel cpu's...

So I am rethincking my setup, and now it looks like this:

Chassis:          My older tower
CPU:               Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 (possible to down clock -less heat)
Cooler for CPU: CNPS8700 NT http://www.zalman.com/ENG/product/Product_Read.asp?Idx=278
Memory:          Corsair TWIN2X DDR2 4096MB (2x2048MB)
HDD:               Samsung Spinpoint F1 1 TB
Power supply:   Seasonic S12-II 380W
Mainboard:       IntelĀ® Desktop Board DP35DP http://www.intel.com/products/desktop/motherboards/DP35DP/DP35DP-overview.htm
Video1:            XFX GeForce 7200 GS 256 MB Silent http://www.xfxforce.com/en-gb/products/graphiccards/7series/7200GS.aspx
Alt Video2:       ASUS Extreme N6200TC Series with TurboCache http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=2&l2=6&l3=497&l4=0&model=473&modelmenu=1



My alternativ AMD system:

CPU:             AMD Phenom X4 9350e http://products.amd.com/en-us/DesktopCPUDetail.aspx?id=450
Mainboard:    M3A78 PRO http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?modelmenu=2&model=2270&l1=3&l2=149&l3=639&l4=0  or M3A-H/HDMI http://no.asus.com/products.aspx?modelmenu=1&model=2129&l1=3&l2=149&l3=639&l4=0

My thinking here is that I can just pull out the GeForce grafic card when there are working ATI drivers for linux.....  ;) ;D

Is here any problem getting the 780G mobos working with adon grafic like GeForce 7200?

I'm going to search here in the forum for any compability problems on these setups.


Thanks for any feeback on this topic :o

Hello,

I have been installing some test systems with LMC 7.10b4, I now want to build a Core for my setup. After som reading in the wiki and forum post, I have selected these components:


Chassis:          Lian Li Minitower, Aluminium, Mini Cube, Sort
CPU:               Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300
Cooler for CPU: NorthQ NQ-3580 Siberian Tiger
Memory:          OCZ Gold XTC 4096 MB DDR2 PC6400
HDD:               Samsung Spinpoint F1 1 TB
Power supply:   Seasonic S12-II 380W
Mainboard:       XFX nForce 630i+GF7150 or Gigabyte GA-73PVM-S2H, nForce-630i+GF7100 -Both card are m-ATX, Socket-775, DDR2, HDMI, PCI-Ex16.


Hovever I not quite satisfied with the mobo, on to points:

-to few PCI slots
-single channel ram.

My reason for selecting one of these mobos is that they also can be used as Core/Hybrid and MD, with UI2.

Also on the CPU, have I been thinking; will the heat emission be to heavy for my low noice sysem??


If someone have a requmendation for an ATX mobo with an onboard grafic that can handle the install of LMCE, I would like to know about it... :-*



Well, any feedback on this setup will be nice ;-)


38
Yes I am from Norway Cirion ;)

When I started Kaffeine in KDE after stopping vdr, I didn't find any scan button :P. But it shows a DVB-s card, and I selected LNB and Thor satelite. After this when I start Kaffine it doesent load anymore.... ???

My satellite dish have proven to be working sometime ago, and it as only been sitting there unused for a while....

Thanks cirion for your replay  ;)

I downloaded the file and stored it at Home folder as kath.8w.

Stopping vdr and doing a scan:

This worked better, but with errors still :(

Then I selected in the admin thor satellite and Picked it. Did a reboot of router and selected TV in LMCE, but NO SIGNAL.

Think that we are closing in here, but what to do next?

Okey I am back to continue the configuration of DVB-s card.

I down loaded the ini file from JoshyFun Site, named 3592.ini. This is for the Thor satelite 0.8 degree west. Saved the file on Home folder.

Users / Re: Why high core requirements?
« on: May 15, 2008, 09:06:36 pm »
Hi Josh

You need the prosessing power due to that the core is setting up a "image drive" for each MD that you connect to the core. This is refered to as a "diskless install" for the MD's.  So the more MD's you connect, the core needs better specs... to give countinuesly feed for all MD's.

And also if you are thinking of useing HD content video feed, you need the power due to the lack of HD hardware acceleration.

There is a way to install LMCE localy on MD's HDD, look in the wiki pages for that...
