  • pooky (second)

    This is my main desktop computer, pooky, built in December 2007. This machine was retired in May 2010.

    Gigabyte GA-G33M-DS2R motherboard
    Core2 Duo E6750 (dual core 2.66 GHz)
    8GB memory (PC2 6400 2GB x4)
    GeForce 8400GS
    1TB disk (Western Digital WD10EADS-00M2B0)
    1TB disk (Hitachi HDT721010SLA360)
    320GB disk (Hitachi HDT725032VLA360)
    320GB disk (Seagate ST3320620AS)
    Fan Master SF-609

    This is the front of the computer. There is a fan controller Fan Master SF-609 in the top bay, a DVD drive, and two hard disks.
    The Fan Master SF-609 can display four temperatures, and control four fans.
    The side of the case has a clear acrylic window so you can see inside.
    The top of the case also has a clear acrlyic window. There is a 8cm fan with blue LEDs attached to the top window.
    On the left is the 12cm fan with red, green, and blue LEDs. This fan can go from 1260 to 1950 RPM.
    This is at the rear of the case, blowing air out of the case.
    On the right are the two 8cm fans with orange LEDs. These fans can go from 1400 to 2700 RPM.
    These are at the front of the case, blowing air at the data hard disks.

    Pooky is running Fedora 11 x86_64 (64bit linux). It was running Fedora 8 with nvidia drivers for dual head support from December 2007 to September 2009. But Fedora 11 supported dual head without any additional drivers.

    At the beginning, I had a lot of problems getting this computer running.

    The first power supply that I tried (Skytec SKP-520PC/V) died. I got an identical replacement, but the motherboard killed that too. Then I switched to a different power supply (Topower TOP-400P5 EZ), and it finally became stable. This motherboard seems to dislike the Skytec power supply..

    When I had the DVD-ROM drive (A Open DVD1648L) attached, I got "kernel: Disabling IRQ #16" messages, and my video card (GeForce 8400GS) started having problems. Since I disconnected the DVD-ROM drive, I've had no problems with X.

    My disks are configured as follows (from top to bottom in the case). [updated 2009.09]

    type SATA port device RAID
    HDT725032VLA360 0 sda md1, md2, md3
    ST3320620AS 1 sdc md1, md2, md3
    WD10EADS-00M2B0 2 sdb md6
    HDT721010SLA360 3 sdd md6

    Before this, I had the following configuration, but when one of the 500GB disks went bad, I combined the md4 and md5 data into the new 1TB raid.

    type SATA port device RAID
    HDT725032VLA360 0 sda md1, md2, md3
    ST3320620AS 1 sdc md1, md2, md3
    WD5000AAKS 2 sdb md5
    WD5000AAKS 3 sdd md5
    HDT722525DLA380 4 sde md4
    HDT722525DLA380 5 sdf md4

    This is the second configuration for pooky. The details of the first configuration of pooky (2004-2007) is also available.
