What are your system specs?

How powerful a computer do you need to run a flow simulation?

My work computer is a dual core 6400/2.13 GHz, with 8 GB of RAM, running XP 64-bit. The graphics card is an nvdia Quadro FX3700.

I have set up a simple chassis with a few fans and a couple of heat sources. The simulation times are running into days, with the initial mesh set to 3.

So, you guys who are running big hairy simulations... what kind of supercomputer are you using?

Oops... should have looked down a few messages for a similar thread.

Wow, I think I better go get my IT guy.
