Yes, the motherboard runs dual xeon 5600s. Its for workstations though, both the motherboard and the two cpu.

Actually no, a slot is the physical connection that the video card slots into. A lane is one of the pairs of pins that transmits data.

So does that mean the motherboard and CPUs all take over 800W?

Intel Workstation Board S5520SC - Chipset - 27.1 Max TDP

I know somewhere I saw somebody had said that with just the processor and the motherboard alone it will be nearing 800 watts.

Perhaps you should list what parts use power so I can do some research.

800W seems extremely high to me, even though I don't know server stuff one bit. Plus, the TDP is more or less a reference to how much electrical heat the CPU should be able to handle - or something like that. "TDP" stands for "Thermal Design Power".

But even if that were referring to the absolute maximum wattages that could be reached under full load, then that would still only be 287.1W.

But now if you are going to go with that board, then it does have two 8-pin CPU power connectors on the board which means the typical enthusiast PSU cannot be used as almost all of them just have 1.

So what you could build instead is basically the ultimate gamer system that can also handle everything else you want to do (because after all, a system that can be considered a PC gamer's wet dream should have an INSANE amount graphics processing power). Such a system as this would have a single top-of-the-line CPU in a top-of-the-line motherboard with 3-4 top-of-the-line graphics cards in it. Then it would have a single top-of-the-line power supply at like 1200-1500W capacity, all comfortably nestled in a badass computer case. Of course, let's not forget the memory. We could have like 16GBs of memory too. hehe

In other words, if the Make-a-Wish foundation is going to do this for ya, then perhaps we can let the members of Overclock.net build a computer that they would build if they had an endless supply of money. This would cause you to end up with the best of the best of the best for each part. Then you can overclock it all you want and it wouldn't even break a sweat. So you could even have a really sweet water cooling setup as well.

So just because it could be considered a "gaming system", that doesn't mean that it can't easily handle everything else!

Can you explain what this means in more detail. I don't know what PSU is unless you are referring to Power Supply Unit? Thats all I can think of that would mean. But I don't understand the whole 8-pin part. How many do you need to use a 1500 watt power supply?

Edit: I think I understand, you're saying that this would require a special power supply with two 8-pin connection wires?

There are two white rectangular 8-pin female connectors on the motherboard you are looking at. Those provide power to the CPUs (so my motherboard only has one because I only have one CPU). So the power supply - the PSU - needs to have two 8-pin cables. But they can't be just any 8-pin cables coming out of the PSU, they have to be for powering the CPU. I mean, there are 8-pin PCI-E power cables which look very similar but of course those won't work in those CPU power connectors.

In the picture of the motherboard you are looking at, these connectors are on the far-right edge of the board both at the top and bottom. One is by the memory slots right on the corner, and the other is down by that heatsink which is near that CPU socket. They are almost always this color too.

I also noticed something else: the motherboard you are looking at only has a single PCI-E slot. So this means that if you want to use more than one graphics card, then you will almost have to build a top-of-the-line gaming system (which most people here on OCN are very good at). I mean, you'll need to use a motherboard with multiple PCI-E x16 slots in order to have a dual-card setup, or up to a quad-card setup. There has to be one PCI-E x16 slot per card.

So what you could do is build the best damn Intel i7 (socket 1366) gaming system that the members here at Overclock.net can come up with.

It says it has two x16 mechanical PCI-E in the demo though. So I should be able to use two cards.

I see it now. It's just that the heatsink was blocking my view. They should have used a better photographer.

So yeah, I guess this might mean you could Crossfire two cards. But, I honestly don't know to be honest. I bet someone does though.

you could get two 5970's (which have two gpu processors per card) so xfiring two 5970's is like quad fire. however, i'd recommend going with nvidia (even though i hate to) and setting this beast up to fold a ton of proteins. you could get some major points for ocn's folding at home team
