New Silent build SR-2 Classified. :)

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
Currently building an SR-2 Classified with 2x 5680 xeons, 48 gb ram quadro 4000. I will post pics soon, I have a website up www.entirecreation.com "it needs to be updated"

Anyway, I went with Noctua FLX fans 6 db on lowest settings, I have 3 XSCP 3x120 Rads cooling the dual 6 core cpus, and the chipset. The rads could be said to be overkill, but at 6 dbs, my comp is completely silent! I also have a c300 for the system drive and a couple of raptor 600 gb drives as my cache drives in Adobe products. I have the watercoolign pump mounted on foam and it runs silent. Unless you put your ear up to it. lol on full settings, the pump gurgles a bit and you can hear the water sloshing around in the rads. BUt this could be due to a bit of air still in the system. I hooked everything up last night. I will be installing the procs on tues, along with the c300, quadro 4000 this next week. I will post pics and get back to you all. and start posting folding scores, and benches. Check out my website periodically, I will have it updated by next week for sure with all new pics, build log, and a forum for chatting, and links to here. ~Cheers Taipan.

one more thing, I will list all the componants in the build soon.
as to the sure question as to cost, well.. this is a workstation build, compare it to any workstation company out there and you will find I did an excellent job at keeping costs down. I do this for a living so Its worth the cost. But if you want to know, in the 10-12k range "not including the 2 grand or so work in putting it together "custom sleeving time spend labor ect. Not including software. I still need to buy a copy of maya and the Adobe production suite. So thats another 5 grand. .. maybe zbrush If I fit it into my future workflow.

the quadro is already ordered. I use maya, softimage, and adobe products. So the quadro is not wasted. I dont want to deal with choppy viewports and max poly counts of like 400k. Need to be in the 1-5 million range. The quadros definatly suck for gaming I know this. but for opengl they are amazing. I will be grabbing a 580 gtx, and dual booting windows. I will Just setup a switch/bios profile to shut off the pci-express slots for work mode and play mode. I do game modeling, rendering and animation as well as concept art for games. I work as a professional graphic designer for one of the Army bases in Germany. any of you guys know a 24/7 stable overclock for the sr2? i was thinking 4 ghz safe and 4.2/4.5 for fast mode. But it depends on the amount of voltage I have to use. I dont want to impact the longevity of the chips for simple speed that I wont use.

uh... the 580 can do that too, and better, 256 cuda cores vs double for a fraction of the price
