Description

Dual xeon for fun and profit. I use this machine for gaming off hours and programming/virtual machines during the work day. Dual 4k displays are great!

Man... I understand you get upset when you lose at minesweeper... But don't you think it is just a little overkill spending all of this money to only play one game, and after all of the money you spent you get 1 fps on minesweeper, while on your $200 laptop you get 110 fps. PS. You could have made 7-8 nice computers with all of the money you spent on one.

dont believe ive ever seen 4 watercooled parts in a pc before lol, 1+ for dual xeon build.

  • 48 months ago
  • 2 points

was going to go with a custom water cooling solution but honestly the AIOs seem to be working well enough. I think the AIO route is also less susceptible to catastrophic leaks etc, but that's only a guess.

  • 48 months ago
  • 2 points

gonna have to say aswell is that AIO coolers r also easier the put in.

  • 41 months ago
  • 1 point

and it also works well because if one loop fails you dont have to strip the whole system, and just replace that one loop.

Impressive configuration ! However, you created a massive bottleneck on your PC by using only one Memory slot per CPU ... You got only 1/4 of the memory bandwidth that you could have. Right now you have less memory bandwidth that most Laptops have since years. And since you have many CPU cores fighting for memory access it is even worse due to entropy.

You should really consider to populate each CPU with 4 DIMM or 8 DIMM (with smaller 4x4Gb kits for example). It makes even more sense if the PC is used for virtual machines that will directly benefits from increased memory bandwidth.

If you fill correctly the memory slots, then you will have a dream machine :) I would like to have such one beast !

PS: With so much money in the case, I would have chosen two Noctua Nh-d15 or Nh-d15s that do not risk to leak (and performs really well). Or smaller Noctua (http://noctua.at/fr/tdp-guide) if you are concerned by the weights. EDIT: This is not relevant since graphic cards are already using watercooling.

why so much for six core CPU?

  • 45 months ago
  • 3 points

erm....they are... 2x 18 Cores bud! Not 6.

These are the top of the line Intel Xeon 18-Cores (36 threads) E5 v3. As of now you won't find any consumer use processor as powerful as these.

  • 37 months ago
  • 1 point

You won't find any consumer use processor as unnecessary for consumer use as these either.

  • 37 months ago
  • 1 point

It depends on what the "consumer use" is. When it comes down to one's wallet, there is nothing that it's not fair game. If I am not a render technician at Pixar, but I still want to render my 4K videos before dinner, then yes, these are not unnecessary at all.

If I game ONLY, on my machine...I agree with you. They are highly inefficient and unnecessary.

If you have orchestral templates as big as Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL, that make music for Hollywood, than No, these are not unnecessary. But if you make DubStep as a hobby and you suck at it too, yes, these are highly unnecessary.

It all depends what you use them for...and this lad seam to put them to good use.

I don't think anyone has mentioned it, but putting parts on the outside of antistatic bags is a bad idea. That's because the conductive coating is on the outside and is actually more likely to ESD your part rather than just placing it on a table or something.

Awesome build, though! I can only be so envious.

It have been so hard to you to put those CPUs on the motherboard, so stressful! Oh, I don't want to think how would it fell presing the power button and... Oh! $15000 not working!

Why the ASUS mobo with the 16 RAM slots instead of the one with 8 tho? I'll let you guess what I'm hoping the answer is.

  • 48 months ago
  • 2 points

I'd probably be ok with 8*16G (128G) of RAM, but honestly the 16 slot mobo was more available and actually cheaper at the time. It had some bad reviews regarding the remote admin capabilities slowing down the boot times but I haven't witnessed it. It is a great board so far.

  • 46 months ago
  • 3 points

The 8 RAM slot version is currently more expensive, which is probably due to the extra PCIe 3.0 slot on it.

stupid question...you are running a 1000 watt, gold-rated PSU for DUAL CPU's and DUAL 980ti hybrid GPU's, which makes sense to me, so why are so many people recommending 1000 watt PLUS titanium-rated PSUs for single CPU, single GPU (or even dual SLI OR xfire ) builds? It makes no sense to me to spend that kind of $$$ on a PSU if it is totally unnecessary. Correct me if I am wrong, but anything below dual 980ti cards should not draw anywhere near 1000 watts of peak power, so what is the train of thought here?

  • 40 months ago
  • 1 point

I'm actually on the edge of what pcpartpicker is calculating as my maximum wattage. I really should be running a 1300-1500 watt power supply. That being said, I've run it with both GPUs and CPUs under full load for a full week without a hitch (not that that means I'll be safe forever).

This is my ideal build, still perfecting it tho! http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/yYd8jc CPU's would be better i think.

  • 34 months ago
  • 1 point

Definitely - I actually have another set of processors in the machine now - running 2x6 corex3.4Ghz (can't remember the model off the top of my head). It is noticeably better in some games. These processors have been moved to my linux rig. I am a developer by trade and these procs are amazing for parallelizable tasks like compiling & analyzing code.

This casual dint even implement the fact you can use 16 sticks of ram for up to 1 TB of RAM storage. This guy is no better than a console gamer and he definitely is just a filthy casual that doesn't spend $10000 on RAM. You disrespect the meaning of a PC Elitist. This build is a joke, you don't even have 3 monitors. Honestly you are a disrespect to the RAM overlords.

Its amazing, but isn't it kind of pointless if youre bottlenecking yourself at 60hz? I mean what if you just got a X34 instead of two 4k monitors at 60hz?

  • 30 months ago
  • 1 point

Two things - with SLI 980tis I'm just able to hold 60 fps at maxd settings on many games at 4K. Second - for productivity I just like using two monitors. I've since added a third 4K and love it.

  • 30 months ago
  • 1 point

I totally get it. I was gonna considering 3 monitors, one a 1440p @165 hz and two 1080p monitors @60hz, and I would play most games at 5760x1080 and ones that don't support it at 1440p with crazy frames. I decided against that though, as the majority of my games are competitive, and therefore easy to run like Overwatch (which doesnt support 5760x1080 :( but with a 1080ti will hit like 250 frames ). My other games are all singleplayer RPGs, like Skyrim or FO4 but heavily, heavily modded graphically, which can only hit like 70-80 frames anyways, so I'm going with the original 1440p @165hz monitor for light games and an ultrawide @60hz for heavy ones. Check out my build, it's called Flog Gnaw, nothing compared to yours CPU wise, but I think the 1080ti would edge you out in the GPU department haha.
