How to build a 8 GPU password cracker
This build doesn't require any "black magic" or hours of frustration like desktop components do. If you follow this blog and its parts list, you'll have a working rig in 3 hours. These instructions should remove any anxiety of spending 5 figures and not knowing if you'll bang your head for days.The Goal
Upgrade our current rig from 6 gtx 970s to 8 gtx 1080. Don't blow a fuse.Parts list Hardware Chassis - Tyan Ft77C-B7079 (P/N: B7079F77CV10HR-N) CPU - 2 Xeon E5-2620V3 LGA2011 (dont purchase one CPU, 2 are required to control all PCIE slots) Memory - 2 32g DDR PC4-200 288pin LRDIMM Hard drive - 1tb Samsung SSD 850 EVO GPUs - 8 EVGA gtx1080 founders edition (whatever you get, make sure its a founders edition. Sometimes called a reference card/edition) Software Ubuntu - 14.04.3 server (x64) hashcat - www.hashcat.net hashview - www.hashview.io Assembly
Nowadays building mid-grade to high-end password crackers is like playing with legos, albeit expensive legos.
We did a time lapse of the build:
There are few things we learned during the purchasing and assembly.You don't need to purchase a separate heatsink and fan for your CPUs. The Tyan chassis will come with them. Tyan chassis comes with brackets that screw into the back of you GPUs to secure them in place. These may not be needed if you never move the box, but it doesn't hurt to install them. We did. Rails are included with the Tyan. This chassis doesn't appear to have a onboard hardware raid. I just assumed it would :-( BIOs didn't require any modifications or flashing. Came fully updated as of January 2017. We disabled the system speaker because it will scream at you if you don't have all three power supplies plugged in.
The memory slots are not labeled. Fill the banks similar to this image.
In the image below you can see the brackets that attach to the rear of the GPU for added support. Probably not needed but if you were to ship this rig I'd install them. This thing is HEAVY!
We had no hardware issues but we installed one GPU, booted the system, and once we verified it could POST with no issues, we started installing the OS. Once Ubuntu finished installing, we later reinstalled all GPUs. Since things went so smoothly,next time I'd just fully install all GPUs and fire it up. Nothing to worry about.Install Ubuntu 14.04.3 Server (x64)
Not going to cover this in detail. But here are few things we considered.Use LVM We chose not to encrypt whole disk or home directory. We generally make an encrypted volume later. Choose 'OpenSSH Server' from software selection screen (one less step post install)
Once OS is installed, verify GPUs are detected by OS:lspci | grep VGA
Update and install dependencies for drivers and hashcatsudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install gcc make p7zip-full git lsb-core Download and install Nvidia drivers and Intel OpenCL runtime
Download Nvidia drivers. Nvidia 375.26 was current at the time of this build (January 2017).wget http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/linux-x86_64/375.26/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-375.26.run chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-375.26.run sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-375.26.run
If you get warning messages about x86 you can ignore them. Here's an example of one:WARNING: Unable to find a suitable destination to install 32-bit compatibility libraries. Your system may not be set up for 32-bit compatibility. 32-bit compatibility files will not be installed; if you wish
[Cto install them, re-run the installation and set a valid directory with the --compat32-libdir option
Install OpenCL runtime (not required but why not, use those CPUs too)wget http://registrationcenter-download.intel.com/akdlm/irc_nas/9019/opencl_runtime_16.1.1_x64_ubuntu_184.108.40.206.tgz tar -xvf opencl_runtime_16.1.1_x64_ubuntu_220.127.116.11.tgz cd opencl_runtime_16.1.1_x64_ubuntu_18.104.22.168 ./install.sh Install hashcat - www.hashcat.net wget https://hashcat.net/files/hashcat-3.30.7z 7z x hashcat-3.30.7z cd hashcat-3.30
