Building a new one now Smile

The idea for this build began on Friday October 15, 2010, October 27th 2010 came the first part; the Lian Li W-X2000B Side Window from PerformancePCS.com, Palm Bay, Florida USA and today 3 months later the case arrived from High FLow B.V Rotterdam The Netherlands. xD

So here it is also with the side panel attached Very Happy






After this I plan on getting some ram 8x 4GB PC3-10600 ECC Reg from Kingston to start with and as upgrade another 8x 4GB PC3-10600 ECC Reg from Kingston, to fullfill all ram slots and the Quad Channel DDR3-1333 per CPU.

Then I will only purchase SSD's for my sotrage, the idea is to use no more moving parts, 6x 240GB sized SSD's with MLC chips should be a good investment, but this is something I plan to do in stages, start off with 2x 240GB in a raid 0 and add the other 4 over the uprade periods, that HDD hotswap bay will come in great handy to usage for these.

As for VGA cards? Well I have my GTX 480's to test the SLI hack, unless Lucid comes with them Hydra PCI-E x8 cards these will be used t make multi chip with NVIDIA GPU's possible, the PSU will be the Silverstone Strider 1500W and the soundcard an Auzentech X-Fi Forte 7.1 PCI-E x1 64MB XRam.

All in all, this will take me at least a year to do, but since the loss of my computerclub died due to member loss and playing no more deticated Lan games, which could of saved it..

So I am doing this so it will last for quite a few years, more than the average system would last, Lifespan is something very important I have to take serious, so I want to make this a perfect build, so patience will ben needed.

Bulldozer support will be welcome as well, since G34 will support these 16 core monsters, so that is just something nice to have for the system's lifespan, even when it's completed 8-12 months from now, although I hope earlier, it still will be a solid performer, so yeah I am going to take this ride, no more 1CPU builds from this one off.

2CPU.com: Because two is deffintely better than one.



As for the Monitor, that is a later worry I do plan on going for a 30" anyways, which deffintiely be for an EIZO 30" with a S-PVA TFT Wink

Once it is complete this is what the specs will lead to:

Firefox SMP 2011

2x AMD Deci Core Opteron 6174 HE @ 24x 2200Mhz, 24x 512KB L2 en 2x 12288KB L3
Supermicro H8DG6-F Dual G34 Based Motherboard
8x 4096MB PC3-10600 Kingston Value Ram ECC Reg. + another 8x 4096MB as future upgrade
2x Geforce GTX 680 to try the SLI Hack
1x Lucid Hyrda PCI-E x8 cards to force multi GPU with the GTX 680's if SLI Hack won't do it
Auzentech X-Fi Forte 7.1 PCI-E 64MB Sound Card
Lian Li Tyr PC-X2000B + Side window
1x 10cm Blue CCFL from Sharkoon for Gold Leader's Y-Wing Hangar Bay Mod
2x 30cm Green CCFL's from Sharkoon
2x 30cm White CCFL's from Sharkoon
1x Silverstone Strider 1500 Watt PSU, just to keep the power flowing

Ah well this will be another fantastic build, that is one thing to be sure about and yes my VGA's will be from EVGA this ride hehe Cool


Here some pics I made of the Supermicro H8DG6-F, also pointing out to things that them leaked pics did not even show Smile

The funny thing was that the Supermicro H8DG6-F was packed in a Supermicro H8DA8-2 Box! but it did have a barcode that also shoed that there was a Supermicro H8DG6-F-O inside the O means that it is a retail version of the board Smile

So this is what you get:


When you open up the box, things do look better, like seeing Supermicro's Checklist of all the contents what is within this Pandorra's box


And this is the mobo Smile


here the layout of this behemoth:


Here CPU socket 1 and 2:


Here the PCI-E slots and the Dual AMD 5690 NB's, the LSI SAS2 600, SATA II 300 connectors and the rest Smile


So here's the mobo in the Tyr, as if was made for it all hah!
