hey guys, I'd like your input as to : would you pull the trigger if possible on a dual xeon e5 2686 v3 (hacked, 3.5ghz turbo most cores) with an asus z10pe-d8 ws, gtx 1080 superclocked SLI, assuming it is doable money wise and with superb value, while currently I'm running one of those procs in x99(cinebench= 2600pts).

What uses could such a rig be put to, or is not worth the hassle for gaming and workstation use alone(and E-peen of course...).

One reason I can think of is you only live once...

P.S. currently it is 18 core/ 36t , upgradeable to 36c /72t

well the question is do you need more cores? you would need to be doing a lot of things to use all them, it would be some heavy multitasking, dare i say, extreme megatasking (lmao)


tbh if you have the money id do it cause there arent many dual socket overclocking boards so it would be cool to see how far you could push the cinebench numbers but really, just the e-peen is what you will gain.

you could always get a few more graphics cards and make a lan party VM box for when your mates come over

I came back two weeks earlier from holiday because my wife applied for a Job and they called her.

Now talking about important things.

I have thought that winter was here but Unfortunately it's hot once again, temps and Dew point are too high plus for some reason i believe i should cool the MOSFET's when Overclocking beyond 5.0GHz and voltages 1.70V+
