post #18511 of 33675

Read my mind, has a nice bios too and would be a nice jack of all trades, even for a server build. thumb.gif
I was thinking a modes ECS x79 board with 4 way sli support but well, that one is much nicer.

...Asus WS series is rock solid, good BIOS support, good VRM - and of course 16x 4 PCIe...add two strong PSUs and 4x 8970s or so... then open a bottle of wine smil3dbd4e4c2e742.gif and celebrate smile.gif ...latest Asus X79 BIOS now have (early) support for IB-E, btw.

... and as you say - later on makes a good server too...

...in what sense ? You surely can cool the CPU and GPUs per w-c, but not sure there are custom w-c fittings available for VRMs etc if that's what you mean...but could make your own

...we're looking at that mobo for the fall for a commercial application that needs lots of solid fast PCIe slots...mobo also has dual Intel NICs thumb.gif

It's one of my favorite x79 boards...RIVE or that tongue.gif

Looking at the 8970 specs it's a 7970 refresh. I was hoping the 20nm rumors would be true...

Keep in mind if still planning on some extreme cooling, you would probably have to pull the waterblocks off if you want to freeze it, or at least drain it so there isn't any water in them. Plain water doesn't like subzero much.

I'm currently working on a way to quick disconnect the CPU block and having the chip already for LN2 for runs and just choosing pipping really so it will work just need to stop being picky. Workin on the designs right now as I type tongue.gif

(bought damn time right)

...yup RIVE, very nice also smile.gif per...

LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01


....though the P9x79 WS is more versatile, but RIVE probably is a better 'clocker' ...would be nice to run the same chip / RAM in both and find out biggrin.gif

I thought that the 8000 branding name is for the oem cpus, and mobile. Are they not skipping to 9970?
