G6400 has two cores, but who cares looking at the results (currently around 70 - 90 €). The mobo seems to be this one (currently around 95 - 110 €). Plus Ram plus ssd and casing, powersupply, will probably end up somewhere in between 250 - 350 €. Guess what: I ordered one!

excerpt from referenced page:

"B460 Ultra Durable Motherboard with Dual NVMe PCIe Gen3 X4 M.2 Slots, Intel® GbE with cFosSpeed,"

I like <Ultra Durable Motherboard> :ohmy:

Edit: 19. Oct. 2020: Actual price for CPU, Ram, Mobo and cooler is at 300€. I do have a case and powersupply already, stuff should be here coming weekend.
Last edit: 19 Oct 2020 16:41 by seuchato. Reason: added prices as of Oct 2020

Cooler that should suit a slim line case: Noctua NH-L12S
If it proofs unsuitable for linuxcnc, I can still use it as a home server (TDP of CPU is 53W, if I take the G6400T only 35W).

This is an early test of my Dell OptiPlex 7010 core i5 , 8gigs ram , 250gig SSD
and a whole lot of frustration.

In short Linux Mint 19.3 XFCE and Lcnc 2.8 Preempt don't go
well together for this machine .

A 300 second test was more then long enough to test this out
No mater what Bios settings I tried it didn't improve much.

sorry for the long post I don't currently know how to do the post within a post

Now this is more like it . Debian Buster with Lcnc 2.8 Preempt
If I am understanding this right it should work fine with the
Mesa 7i76E card I will be using
I will do the 2 hour long test tonight and report back if their is
any significant changes

sorry in advance for the long post . I unfortunately dont know
how to make the post within a post.

If you hover along the icons at the top you have the choice of "code" or "spoiler"

So put you text in as normal then highlight what you want it then click on the icon at the top. "code" or "spoiler"
