    Two dual Xeon systems with Quadros and those overhyped + overpriced EVGA NEX 1500 PSUs? Someone has way too much money.

    Wow. That computer setup could pay my mortgage for several months, and still get me a caviar dinner every other week.


    Best of luck to whomever wants them. I can only say that I wish I could see the benchmarks for something like that.

    He would've been better served by OCZ Vector or Samsung 840 Pro drives, but I guess the 520s are ok too, especially RAID0. What really bothers me is the PSU. It's sorely out of place here - Seasonic, Delta, Flextronics, SuperFlower and Enermax all have better platforms in both raw performance and price/quality terms. But oh well, what's done is done.

    Enjoy building the beast twins :)

    the evga psu was made for the sr-x, the cableing fits the connectors on the board perfect & also comes with a 10 year warranty, I first look at enermax, but for this build evga 1500w fit the bill, as for ssd's i would never trust ocz, samsung's are good but for stability intel ssd's

    corsair h80i's are silent, but can get loud under load with the internal speed controller

    The NEX 1500's were a bit dissapointing. That 1600W Lepa is currently $299 after rebate. But that would be overkill anyway. :p

    I was thinking more along the lines of AX1200i or HCP-1200 or SS-1000XP or SS-1250XM or NP-1GM-1200A or LZP-1000 or ...

    Yeah same here, but if he really REALLY want 1500W there are not a whole lot of options, but the Lepa is a very good one.

    BTW, what would a build like this make? I did some quick googling and the Tesla tops out at 225W, the Quadro at what, 150W? I have no idea about the CPU's and the rest.

    power is key for stability, 10 year warranty, 17gage power cord that plugs straight into the wall outlet with built in protection, was made for the sr-x, I'm not seeing any other options,as for calculating how much power is needed, in the long run , more watts means less

    Another reason the 1500watt might be good is optimum effeciency of the psu. If I remember correctly, psu's are most effecient around 50%. That systems should use about 700 watts I am estimating.

    Also remember that PSUs lose power output year after years.

    Did you ever consider the ASUS - Z9PE-D8 WS ?

    SR-X reviews didn't give much praise to it.

    Doing worst-case estimate math here. The Xeon E2687w draws around 160W at full blast (all threads), so that's about 320W. RAM pulls about 5-6W per stick so that's 60-70W total (this is also the reason why I'm against the NEX1500 - it has problems with 3.3V rail, and in this system it will get utilized pretty seriously). MoBo itself will pull around 50-60W. All the HDDs and SSDs all fit within another 50-60W. The Quadro K5000 will want about 125W at full blast. The Tesla C2075 will guzzle up to 230W at FP64 on all cores. H80s will take about 20W altogether, again, full load/max speed. That's around 885W absolute max. Realistic max would be about 80% of that, and even that is not likely to be a typical load situation, but it's achievable. So, around 700W. That's in the sweet spot of a 1200W PSU easily (efficiency max is from 40 to 60% load in most cases).

    Then again, it might just be my sincere dislike of the NEX that made this (and all the previous) post(s) happen :p

    when I get them running, the nvidia maximus configuration will be first,, what benchmarks would u like to see.

    I am most interested in gpu compute test. Luxmark is one I know of but only tests open cl. Folding@home has a benchmark. I would like to see both opencl and cuda benchmarks on that.

    On the cpu side, a 7zip or winrar benchmark.
