Great idea! I never even thought of changing the GTX 460 for a low end Quadro. Definitely going to do that, probably for something like the quadro 3800

It would probably help out more with After Effects than Premiere though since premiere is now supporting fermi for GPU acceleration (they just announced official fermi support a few days ago ).



You really don't want to know what happened the first time I turned on my computer...

I've considered TEC cooling before, in fact I was previously torn apart between the two for the CPU cooling so I made a thread here on OCN asking which would be better from a price to performance standpoint. Basically everyone agreed that the extra electrical costs of TEC cooling would make up for the initial higher price of the Phase cooler, and would give less performance than Phase.



WOW! If I had only seen your result 2 weeks ago...

Do you think that everyone else that used that benchmark is getting worse performance also due to using a previous version of Premiere CS5?



I never ended up putting it in it's case yet since I'm upgrading about half of the components.



Thanks, but that $15k is about to $22k

Just to let you guys know though I didn't actually spend that much on this build, I'm just an obsessive deal finder.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Ok so here's the list of parts that I will most likely switch out; feel free to critique -

- Sell the i7 980x and Rampage III Extreme
- Return the 3ware 9750-8i RAID card
- Buy MegaRAID 9211-8i or 9260-8i RAID card
- Buy an SR-2
- Get Dual ES X5650/X5680 xeons
- (possibly) Return/Sell current phase change
- (possibly) Buy dual evaperator phase change?
- (possibly) Buy water cooling parts for chilled water?
- Switch from 8 Vertex SSD's to 8 C300 SSD's
AND/OR
- Buy 24GB more RAM and get RAMdisk software to run OS on RAM


And I was thinking if I'm going to build a rig with this much power, might as well
- Buy or rent 2 Ln2 / Dice pots!!!

Doing extreme benches and an in-depth review on the Xeons in an insane computer build will probably also give Intel a great incentive to send me their CPU's in the future. (And it will make a great video to start my t3chnews site with )


Now I just need to wait until I have 35 reps so I can sell on the OCN marketplace...
great idea's I'm glad you're back as I thought this thread was dead which would have me sad but now I'm

Epic win.

I'm really surprised that your 4 SSD's outperformed a 8x 10k RPM array with SSD boot drive though. SSD FTW!

If your price range is so high, why don't you get the EVGA SR-2 and run 2 xeons for 12 cores?

Remember what happened last time I said something and people didn't believe me? lol.


But seriously guys is there any way to make sure my current RAM is compatible with the SR-2 other than to buy it and test it myself? It's off brand memory so I highly doubt anyone else with an SR-2 would have the same RAM kit.

Thanks
