This build is totally brutally awesome but I can't help thinking to myself that building say 6 rigs using the hex core 1090T AMD chips all with 8GB RAM and clustering them to make a render farm would be faster and more suited for the job?

Cheaper as well?

AMD chips don't have the instruction sets he needs for his programs. Still, I agree with you. I would buy a bunch of i7 870/P55/6GB kits and run them in a parallel server farm.

@ lsudvm

He did overclock the chips, but he also had rare "Black Edition" 6168 that have unlocked mutlipliers. These chips are not commercially available and thus the OP would have a hard time acquiring them.

Damn, and I felt good about building a self-funded $2500 computer earlier this year before my 18th birthday. I couldn't quite take the time to look through hundreds of posts. I know he's using the computer for mad editing shizz, but was it company funded or something? No matter how awesome you are, $24k is a tad steep at that age.

EDIT: Is there a video available of the rig? Maybe pics?
Yep, that's me in the video.

I updated the first post about how I was able to afford this comp.

When he said that he saw my live stream of the build, he was talking about my previous build (that I never quite finished) I'm currently switching it out for this SR-2 build.

Also,

Your SR-2 Build has 12 cores @ 5.5 GHz that is 66. Add in hyperthreading and you might be up to around 80. Hyperthreading doesn't give you as much % increase when you are already using super fast memory and using highly optimized code.

If only they had overclocking options on that G34 board...
You're probably right about it being about 80Ghz total or so in real world video editing applications. I was just trying to be theoretical.

And that would be amazing to have 4 overclocked mangy CPU's

That would be awesome! But there's no way on earth my parents would let me turn my room into a render farm... So I can't really do that.

Besides, AMD chips perform very poorly with many video editing applications due to unsupported instruction sets, which makes them very impractical. The other thing about a render farm is that the overall rendering time is very inefficient in relation to the amount of computing power since they are connected via Ethernet rather than a QPI. Shorter renders would suffer the most from this and be significantly slowed down.

Yeah... But the CPU's he used are not publicly available. So that isn't of much use is it?

The other reason why I didn't go with a multi-computer server farm is that I was offered a sponsorship from both Intel and EVGA and (Intel) basically offered me two 100% free Xeon X5680 CPU's, and (EVGA) a free SR-2 Motherboard. I just couldn't refuse their offer, not only for this build, but for other opportunities like College. It's always good to say that you were sponsored by huge companies like Intel and EVGA on your Resume lol.

In summary I didn't go with a render farm because

1. There's no way my parents would let me turn my room into a render farm. As they say I would look like a "mad scientist".

2. AMD Chips preform horribly at video editing applications.

3. Render farms are often very inefficient and impractical for smaller renders.

4. I was offered thousands of dollars worth of High-end components from Intel and EVGA that would only work with a single computer.


EDIT: I forgot to mention that I just added a Q&A section to the OP for the people who don't want to look through thousands of posts to find an answer (lol)

I see you changed your computer name to Zeus, is this what you will be calling it?

Yes, Zeus, (as in the king of the Greek Gods) seems to fit this build pretty well.

I'm open to suggestions for the naming though




And I have an Update on the monitors:

I finished taking off the DELL monitor bezel! Now the borders are almost unnoticeable when I align them together. Currently I'm trying to find the best way to wall mount all of the monitors since I cant use a regular monitor stand or mount (when you take off the bezel, all the plastic on the back has to come off too, including the part where the monitor is normally mounted).

I'm particularly interested in the monitor setup you're working on. I had something similar in mind to get rid of the bezels. Pics of the process and the final result would be awesome.
