So
it has take a few days to perfect. You know..cable management, alignment, SLI profile building, driver selection, and general tweaking.

So the build is:

2x 3090 rtx Founders Edition & SLI bridge
2x 8180M (56/112 cores
1.5 TB ram
Asus c621 Sage Dual socket motherboard
4x Raid Samsung 860 pro (4TB each, 16TB total) data and backups
1x Samsung 860 pro (4TB) data and backups
1x Sabrent 8TB nvme for Apps and Games
1x Sabrent 4TB nvme (OS)
1600W digital power supply
asus PA32UCX-P monitor
Thermaltake P1 micro ATX case (modified..heavily)
MS Windows Data Center 2020 for OS
1x pound of flesh and blood


I already had a lot of custom profiles for my quad SLI rig, so a few edits and I've been able to get SLI to work quite well.

I've moved my 1x 32GB Titan CEO ed and the othre 3x Titans to my wife's pc. Which is also a case mod clone of this machine, because it was my prior build.


So far, ...now that its all buttoned up, it seems quite a decent PC,
It very quiet, almost inaudible at idle, and creepily quite quiet under load..I like that. Provides no audible presence in room.

Temps are nice and cool, under load the cards have yet to get above 67C.
CPU run at about 41C under load, and RAM hovers at 55C under load.
NVME drives run 28C idle and 52C at the end of a full drive copy.

Kudos, but imagine having 18k worth of CPU and 3k worth of GPU and having a CPU bottleneck in games :eek:

Of course you are, those CPU's are not gaming CPU's with a 2.5ghz base and 3.8ghz boost and, if you tried those GPU's with a 10700k @5ghz for instance you would then notice you are getting bottlenecked in certain games and you would see much higher FPS letting those 3090's really stretch their legs, I mean it's cool but it screams more money than sense and just throwing money at the most expensive hardware you can find. Would I still have it, hell yes, I'd bite your arm off for it, but that's not the point :roll:

@venturi you obviously have a decent amount of money at your disposable, any reason for so many cores? I mean if it something specific to CPU maybe just have that in a separate system and get yourself a 5950X when it launches?

5950x whilst having much higher IPC and clocks is SP only, 16 cores still couldn't compete with 56 even at a much lower base/boost and IPC of the 8180m, assuming all of those cores get put to work which I am assuming they do as it would be criminal otherwise. That said, an 3990x TR which is around 4k would likely tear both of them to shreds and then some.

Can we appreciate the dude has a crazy PC and not denounce literally every choice he made to build it?
I think people appreciate that, can they not also have an opinion?

He does work on this rig. He made a thread about it a year or so ago.

Literally when your job requires you to need this amount of resources, overkill doesn't have a meaning.

Opinions are fine if you can be a little nicer about it. "Imagine wasting money" is what you've just said and reiterated. Perhaps OP doesn't think it was a waste, eh?
Um, no, no I didn't say that, please don't tell me I meant something I didn't say, and I'm sorry if you don't find different opinions as "nice" people can communicate just fine without pandering to being nice and trying not to offend everyone today, you should try it.

His rig is insane :rockout: granted, I am allowed to have an opinion and voice my thoughts on it though as it is posted on a public forum, if you disagree with my opinions, that' fine :toast: you're showing that you're also human and that's what people do :)

Gents.
I use the PC for research, Its my personal PC. My daytime jobs are in administration, medical, nuclear medicine, and IT; however, I'm going to school full time and doing my dissertation on deep learning and NLP NN. The rig pulls double duty. I've had an uber rig since 1998, constantly upgraded. I have also been one of the first to water-cool, 2 way and 4 way SLI, Titan XP SLI (4way). I have kept the passion going and learned a few things along the way. All along every rig pulled double duty. Here are a few of just the early builds. Back then there was a site called "NVNEWS" and 2CPU.com; I used to post there heavily.

Here some early builds. Yes, we had PCs back then.

Thats a nice build.
Why the Intel instead of Dual EPYC or dual 32c/64t TR? You get even more cores, PCIe gen 4?

because there isn't a dual epyc/rome workstation with on board sound, and appropriate pcie slots spacing to do the dual 3090
the gigabyte dual epyc/rome board can't do it either
it must be able to function as a workstation and not a rack mount server

I am allowed to have an opinion and voice my thoughts on it though as it is posted on a public forum,

To a certain degree, as long as you don't offend any mods with it.


Sick sick PC and if it is used for what it certainly can do with all those cores and ram even better. the two 3090's are just cherrys
