she's not a looker, but never doubt the performance.
:i what do you need all of that storage for....?
Does a virtualization whitebox mean something that takes a crap load of SSD storage or is this just one heck of a weird build? Other than that I guess its a nice build, if the whitebox thing doesn't take graphics. And isn't that just a bit overpriced Mobo? And what takes that much ram?
it does produce high load to the SSDs when you have lots of VMs running sql server. i play pc games as well :)
gotta find a mobo that can take 8 DIMMs and 64GB which answer the next question, for lots of VMs.
Wonderful Build I can appreciate such a professional build ;) ~ IamApropos
Are those SSDs in a RAID 0 config?
Yes they are, X79 RAID 0 performance is great. RAID 5 still lacks of the write speed. BTW, the RAID 0 is only for 4 x Intel SSDs, I could not remove extra 2 SSDs from the build list.
Nice, nice. RAID is often a sign of quality building. It shows that you really care about squeezing every ounce of performance out of your machine.
Is RAID 0 failure rate more/less prominent with SSDs than it is with mechanical hard-drives?
Unfortunately, I'm not sure about SSD RAID 0 data integrity. Therefore, I have daily incremental SSDs backup to the WD 4TB.
Keep posted if they seem prone to failure. I'm interested because I like the idea of that extra performance, but I can't bring myself to doing it because I don't have the cash to dish out every time I blow a part. :P
64 GB of RAM, 7 SSDs, hexa core proccessor 24 inch monitor and nice mouse. Why the 650 ti.
not really into gaming :)
I guess if your not into gaming even a 650 ti could be considered overkill. Yet again so could the first three thinks I mentioned.
What the hell kind of case is that some kind of refrigerator?
I think you need more SSD's
It'd be a hell lot easier to just have one 2 or 3tb HDD instead of the SSDs, not to mention a lot cheaper.
