That 32gb of ram looks lonely

64gb*

Ninjadudewhat 2 Builds 5 points 35 months ago

In the photos there are only two sticks of ram, and when I commented I'm fairly sure there were only two listed too. Which makes 32gb.

aventador18 1 Build 0 points 33 months ago

your right there is "only" 32 gigs of ram

Ninjadudewhat 2 Builds 3 points 33 months ago

I'm not saying it's a small amount in any way, it's simply not what that person said

twistdroach submitter 1 Build 1 point 26 months ago

when I first built it, I had 32 in there, I've since added :)

one problem with pc partpicker is that it doesn't show when you update builds, it just replaces the one. i also originally had different processors in this box as well....

Tylerlhooker 1 Build 4 points 40 months ago

Well you could probably filter the builds to the most expensive and they will probably be in there.

You may get 20 fps on csgo on low graphics :P

Builder111111stTime 5 points 34 months ago

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.

ankousmachine 2 Builds 3 points 40 months ago

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

twistdroach submitter 1 Build 2 points 40 months ago

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.

ankousmachine 2 Builds 2 points 40 months ago

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

jesswainwright 1 point 33 months ago

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

youssef54 3 points 37 months ago

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.

Dave702 2 points 40 months ago

why so much for six core CPU?

lorenzog.music 1 Build 3 points 36 months ago

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.

CWallace56 1 Build 1 point 29 months ago

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

lorenzog.music 1 Build 1 point 29 months ago

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.

Vauun 1 Build 2 points 39 months ago

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.

FACUNDO 13 Builds 2 points 36 months ago

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!

Can you play Minecraft maxed out with this build?

lorenzog.music 1 Build 3 points 29 months ago

I doubt it. Minecraft maxed out??? You kidding?

You can't play that even with a 4x Intel Xeon 22-cores clocked at 3.6Ghz, 1.5TB or RAM and 7 GTX Titan Pascals...man, go check your flippin benchmarks man. ppptsss...minecraft maxed out....this guy

HalikstarTBB 1 point 25 months ago

Awesome build keep up the good work. The specs are awesome and if i could i would buy the same stuff for my build.

auldae 1 Build 1 point 40 months ago

Love it. First build on the site with this CPU ... and you got two. +1

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.

twistdroach submitter 1 Build 2 points 40 months ago

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.

MSG17 3 points 37 months ago

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

WillieTheNelson 1 Build 1 point 40 months ago

But can it run CS GO on at least medium settings at 40+ fps?

orangeninja27 1 point 35 months ago

it runs minecraft at 1 FPS, so it surely can run CS:GO at 5000 FPS max settings

stephensoncs 1 point 34 months ago

ok two xeons a little bit too much dont you think why didn’t you invest in the graphics card more

cymru_builder 1 point 34 months ago

correct me if I'm wrong but shouldn't xeons support 128gb of RAM?

BaconUnicorn 1 Build 1 point 28 months ago

its not, i think pc part picker only show ones under 9k here due to some prices being bugged out to 999999999999999999$ which prevents spam.

CEStrader 1 point 33 months ago

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?

twistdroach submitter 1 Build 1 point 32 months ago

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).

aventador18 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

i bet you it can barely run minecraft at 10 fps at 144p

aventador18 1 Build 1 point 33 months ago

jk probably runs minecraft around 300 fps at 4k

What is the difference between a double CPU PC and a single CPU PC I am interested in building this but would like to know more about it

BaconUnicorn 1 Build 1 point 28 months ago

in a double CPU pc it has 2 cpu's

really tho dual cpu's are only really used in servers for their amout of cores, hence why the cpus are normaly xeons

georgeleg04 1 point 28 months ago

Make a update with a 1080 or pascal titan x

BaconUnicorn 1 Build 1 point 28 months ago

dont really understand the CPU's and why you need dual 18 cores, isnt there somthing with lower cores and higher Ghz? other than that this looks really cool!

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

twistdroach submitter 1 Build 1 point 26 months ago

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.

Avasdex1243 1 point 27 months ago

vesalexiev 1 Build 1 point 27 months ago

Whats your FPS like? I have a 980ti in a similar build with the same motherbiard but i'm only getting 95 fps on cinebench. I noticed it was also bottle-necking a GTX 1060.

JesseMueller 1 point 25 months ago

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.

MuchLinux6500 2 Builds 1 point 25 months ago

Fabulous build. How do you set up dual Xeons? +1 on your build! :)

CaraDLVN 1 point 24 months ago

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?

twistdroach submitter 1 Build 1 point 22 months ago

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.

CaraDLVN 1 point 22 months ago

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.
