while I may not even como close to one of those kits ever in my life,it's still very,very impressive.Decent latency,frequency and quantity!

technically 32bit can address 2^32 = 4,294,967,296 bytes of memory, or 4 gb of ram

its limited further in windows operating systems.

650w was overkill as it was...

An HD5870 is only going to consume at most 145w, the 980x will consume 130w, the 2TB drives consume less than 20w max. Full load your looking at maybe 450w max.

And there really isn't a point to a $100 case, the $40 case cools similar rigs without issue.

Alright, well who's up for a $3500 virtual server w/ 24gb of uber fast ram then?

What 1T can't handle it or what? it has support for that so...

1T never works with all slots occupied on a motherboard. (or if it does work, its bloody uncommon/JEDEC clocks only)

1T never works with all slots occupied on a motherboard. (or if it does work, its bloody uncommon/JEDEC clocks only)

That depends on the memory controller and RAM. My main rig has all the slots occupied, and runs 1T just fine at 1600MHz(which isn't a JDEC standard). I even have one stick that is rated for 2T, and it still works I just have to force it. This is because the IMC on the i7 processsors can handle the 1T with all the slots filled, usually even with 6 slots filled on the 1366 sockets(though sometimes not at higher speeds than 1600MHz).

On the other hand, AMD's IMC is known for being weaker, and does struggle to run memory at 1T when all 4 slots are filled, in fact in the past it stuggled to even run the memory at full speed when all 4 slots were filled. I remember the 939 processors IMC was notorious for dropping the RAM down to 2T and 333MHz when 4 sticks were present. I seem to remember even their recent processor having issues with running RAM at proper speeds when all 4 sticks are present, but I'll have to check on that.

My 780i/P45/P35/965P boards, with the memory controller on the chipsets, could run 1T with 4x1GB sticks of RAM rated for 1T, but not with 4x2GB sticks rated for 2T.

Alright, well who's up for a $3500 virtual server w/ 24gb of uber fast ram then?

I've got a client that is very close to using the 12GB in their server right now, but I don't think they will be buying this kit, as it would be too expensive, and the extra speed wouldn't really benefit them. I think they are going to have me order another 12GB 1333MHz kit here in the next few weeks.

i've never managed all slots with 1T before, not since the socket A days. you may well have it working, but i said it does, sometimes. Congrats on getting a good IMC + great ram.

You do make a good point on 1GB sticks vs 2GB sticks, the lower the density the easier it was to achieve.

Not many? Most would be disappointed by the limitations in even the most advanced GPU virtualization offered today. (but it is getting better)

Take 3D out of it and a multi-user box can be done pretty cheaply. At my last job I wrote up a proposal for a machine to replace our five aging training stations. Xeon L3426, 8GB, two cheap video cards (+onboard) for five outputs, some hard drives, Linux host, and we had some leftover XP licenses so the total was under $1200. Would have sipped power and been incredibly fast for it's purpose.

$3500 could buy a fairly beefy server for dozens of remote virtual clients or one with some 3D support.

Have you used a lot of Intel stuff? Because I've never had a problem getting 1T with all the slots filled on the Intel side w/ Intel Chipsets when the RAM supported it. I've only had major issue with AMD managing 1T(and correct clocks) with all the slots filled.

AMD's memory controller has been plagued with issues when running 4 sticks, it has been since the regular DDR IMC on the 939 socket, actually even the 754 socket IMC had issues.

yeah i was heavily intel until this current system. maybe i just have access to lower end stuff than you :p
