    @hankeys: i plan to open a separate thread with workflow as the only subject because this is not related to hardware

    in a dedicate thread we can detail, explain and recommend general workflows, targeted to beginners because those simple recommendation wont be of any interest for advanced traders

    for power supply unit, i think its relevant something i have read some time ago:

    “In our opinion, power supplies are investments. Aside from enabling lower electricity bills, good PSUs also protect your PC hardware in case something goes wrong and extend the life of your components through clean power. The more ripple in a PSU’s rail, the lower the DC quality and higher the stress on voltage regulation circuitry. The same goes for increased voltage deviations, which also apply huge stress on VRMs. This is why ripple suppression and load regulation are the key factors for a PSU’s performance, with efficiency following closely.”

    https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/evga-supernova-750-p2-platinum-psu,4566-10.html

    i am putting here the standards:
    80 PLUS Bronze 82%
    80 PLUS Silver 85%
    80 PLUS Gold 87%
    80 PLUS Platinum 90%
    80 PLUS Titanium 92%

    The rule of thumb or good practice for PSU is something between Bronze sau Platinum, double the wattage of the system and a model from a good brand, Seasonic or a platform from CWT or Fortron, meaning something from Corsair, EVGA, Bequiet.

    please run the config file from hankeys to have a better image of the performance

    there used to be prepared some basic building process so the users could compare their PC specs…but for now its old, because we have already new builds and many changes was made

    truth is, that you have very good specs, but how many “profitable” strategies will you be producing is more in the setting itself and your knowledge, not the PC specs

    You want to be a profitable algotrader? Sharing of final strategies with real traders just started. Fill in this FORM. 1500+ final SQ3 and SQX strategies for members running on demo accounts DEMO ACCS. We provide also strategies for indices - DAX and DOW JONES, because we have realtick data from brokers.

    I’m not doing a race to see who has the most powerful computer…. this discussion is about the characteristics of computers in relation to price and consumption…… It’s still true that if you have more power you can do more things in less time. it’s you can study and the faster you can notice the mistakes

    @Gianfranco: what liquid cooling solution you have and what PC case ?

    hankeys is right that the old config file is not relevant anymore

    i think that 3900X is a very good processor and very efficient in power consumption for the performance it has. Someone, anyone with decent knowledge in SQ should get decent results

    in my case, with a 3700X, i got modest results, only on 3 pairs, GBPJPY, GBPUSD and XAUUSD on M30 – H4 timeframes but the best strategies are around 40 pips/trade and aprox 100 pips/month.

    I couldn’t get any decent strategy on M15 on any pair because 3700X is too weak and it would get me too much time, probably at least 2 weeks of generating. That is why, in my opinion, anyone with a processor weaker than 3700X or more energy inefficient, wont be able to get any decent, stable, working strategy, except for Daily timeframe, but those would take years of testing. To have at least 6 – 8 closed transactions on Daily, you need at least a year.

    they had sent me an offer for dual xeon platinum workstations 8160 64 gb ram ssd nvme basic video card for about 1800 euros.. but unfortunately I had already just taken this

    Xeon Platinum 8160 is a very recent and powerful processor, Skylake based, 24 cores. A desktop, be it a server, with 2 of those processors is a beast in terms of performance but also power consumption. Such a dual CPU configuration is on par with the most recent Threadrippers.

    Regarding the price, 3 years ago when released, one processor was 4.000 EUR. If someone reliable offered you a dual configuration for just 1.800 EUR, that’s exceptional if not almost too good to be true.

    it is on ebay   from

    is a seller who took some servers etc etc. from engineering and architecture studies because these studios are closed

    Or those XEON’s is engineering samples used when testing motherboards. There are 100000 ds of them in use for this and after some xxxx cycles they are discarded and people gets hold of them and sell them.

    i started to get the first results from the last 3 – 4 months of testing and although i put on test all timeframes from M15 to H4, only the H4 and in some cases H1 gave me good, stable results. Most likely the best results are on Daily.which i will generate and test in the future

    this finding has implications on the hardware used, meaning that with let’s say, normal, decent performing processor like the 3700X, 3800X and Intel equivalents, i would strongly recommend beginners not to generate below H1 and concentrate on H4 because they will waste electricity and time. In fact, this was also exactly the recommendation received long time ago from the SQ team members responsible with training.

    Now,…because the interest on lower timeframes like M30 and M15 will always be high and having available much higher performing processors like the top Threadrippers, we will have to wait until someone available to share info, could confirm if with more powerful processors were able to get real, tangible results if any on those lower timeframes
