Intro
The Goat Master says hello and would like you to determine if this is a good computing rig.  Thank you for your input!  Grin Grin

Items!

A cool server motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131861 with dual LGA 2011 slots and 6x 16x PCIe slots

1x XEON: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117272

1x i7: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115229

!! Will two different CPUs work? !!

Solid State Boot Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820248015, 480 GB, SATA III

2x Sapphire 7950 GPUs: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202003 - It has the best cost to hash ratio (for some occasional mining) and also is enough for great graphics.  May add more if needed.

PSU: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007W5TV6K, 1600 Watts

Cooling: http://www.corsair.com/us/hydro-series-h80i-high-performance-liquid-cpu-cooler.html - LIQUID COOLING! Cheesy

Thank you so much!  Smiley
BaaaaaAA!

I think your PSU can supply enough power, but you probably need a case.
check this guy's rig out! https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=7216.2260

Also you need cooling, somebody's rig caught fire because of high temps.
For cooling try liquid cooling (H80i)
http://www.corsair.com/us/hydro-series-h80i-high-performance-liquid-cpu-cooler.html
$86.99 on newegg
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181031

Of not you can use a regular fan, which is 10x cheaper, literally:
http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-SickleFlow-Computer-R4-L2R-20AC-GP/dp/B0026ZPFCK/
($8.53)

or an industrial box fan
http://www.amazon.com/Lasko-3723-20-Inch-Premium-3-SPEED/dp/B000HHJ2I2
$24.93

Change the HD to a WD black and add an SSD.  Take out a couple of the video cards.

Should invest in a decent SSD instead of going for a high end processor that won't do you any good in mining anyway, and get an efficient low watt CPU instead...win-win.

If I read it right he's not using it for mining anyway.

Tricked out? Where is the hardware SSD Raid-6? Where is the water blocks for CPU/GPU?

Lol I agree. With the exception of the 4 GPUs (which is pretty standard for a mining rig), there's nothing that really screams "EXTREME RIG!"

Where ARE those SSDs? I wanna see a waterblock for the GPU, CPU, and even the chipset! I don't need no fancy lighted fans or case that looks like it came out of a homemade anime. What monitor(s) are you gonna use?

Either build a REALLY nice mining rig, or build a REALLY nice gaming rig, but don't half-ass both and call it the best of both.

Yeah you should at least have dual Xeons.

Dual Xeons is for pansies. I want my Quad 16core Opterons! 64 cores in one rig.

Yeah it's nice saying you've got a lot of cores, but most times you're better off having multiple xeon nodes instead.

Cut your mobo budget by more than half and have more to pick from running LGA 1155.  

3770k is only $20 more than the 3820 and will easily oc 4.4ghz with proper cooling.

64GB is a waste unless you're using software that can utilize it.  I run a fairly resource hoggy CAD that can't burn up 16GB with Photoshop running in the background.

Same with four 79xx.  Drop two cards and then resize the power supply.  Lose the risers and get a case if you're not mining with it.

edit - I really like Seagate hard drives, but that turd is not a boot disk.  You should be looking ssd or 7200rpm disk.

If you want it supa - come back when you're liquid cooling a 4770k to 5ghz, 15krpm SAS Raid, Radeon 8xxx, etc.

Ir you are looking for ideas, a data mining application build using SQL Server Enterprise with Full Text Search enabled will easily burn through 512GB of RAM and bog down 64 cores.

OP edited with suggestions!  Is it supa?  Or still only semi supa?

Maybe more GPUs?

4 GPU is pointless if you're not mining.  2x 7970 (or whatever) is good enough for games at high res with all the stuff turned on.

If you really want an epic machine, look at the server board section on newegg.

http://www.newegg.com/Server-Motherboards/SubCategory/ID-302

So, for example here's a board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131861 with dual LGA 2011 slots and 6x 16x PCIe slots

Slap two of these chips in there: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117272

And you'll have 16 cores at 3.8 Ghz Unfortunately each of those chips is $1.9k a peice.

On the other hand, if you go AMD you can get much lower cost chips.  So for example here is an 8 core, 3.1Ghz chip for $345, which you could slap on this board.  Unfortunately it only has 2x 16x PCI express slots though. But definitely cheaper then intel in terms of CPU strength.

(although remember Intel does more per core then AMD, so an 8x Intel will be about as fast as 16x AMD cores - but probably much more expensive)
