Obviously those who are making good money off of mining BTC will want to keep the exact number secret but say you have a sever farm running all the time off of electricity that is paid for, what kind of figures would one be looking at? say you have 13 CPUs working perfectly and geared for mining

Curious  Huh

not much.  I have a AMD 3.4 ghz quad core and it can mine at about 12 mhash/s.  so 13*12= 156.  I get 165 mhash/s from one ATI Radeon 5770 Graphics card.  CPU mining kind of died when gpu mining was introduced.

What if you had the perfect setup for mining and many of them like server farms are there possibilities of mining like 100s of coins a day or 1000s?

7200 are produced per day.

to earn "1000's per day" would imply your server farm was a large proportion of the entire bitcoin network's processing power.

eg. capable of checking 2+ terahashes / sec

Even with 100 CPU's, your not even going to make 10 coins a MONTH.

Depends on your cost of electricity, which can vary by a factor of greater than 10 depending on where in the world you live: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electricity_pricing

One cannot repeat it often enough: You cannot get rich, just by mining Bitcoins (unless you pay nothing for your electricity).
Even when doing very efficient mining it will approx. last over a year until you have the costs for your hardware back in (again, unless you pay nothing for your electricity).
Mining doesn't pay, thats per definition of the algorithm. When it does pay at a specific time, more people will start mining, which automatically increases difficulty until the number of people which are mining starts sinking again.
The only (but risky) way to make money with bitcoins is trading. There are enough Marketplaces out there, like Tradehill.
