OK... so, I've got a client that needs a beast machine. He'll be doing some pretty high-end computing with this thing along with 3D rendering and AutoCAD and all that good, heavy stuff. After a bit of research and conversations with a few people that have done systems like this before, I ordered the parts. Some came in already, but I'm still waiting for a couple.

Budget: Go crazy. Thing is, my budget-oriented side is kicking in so I don't want to go TOO overboard and scare him off. I'm thinking about $4K~ish.

I decided on these parts, sent out the quote to my client, and it was approved.

BEHOLD!

Motherboard: 1x ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS Dual LGA 2011
PSU: 1x Seasonic X-1250 1250W PSU
Case: 1x LIAN LI PC-X2000FNB
Processor: 2x Intel Xeon E5-2630
RAM: 2x Kingston 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Registered DDR3 1333 Server Memory
GPU: 1x PNY VCQ4000-PB Quadro 4000
SSD: 1x Crucial M4 128GB
HDD: 2x Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB
Cooler: 2x Dynatron R17
Optical: 1x ASUS Blue-Ray Burner
OS: 1x Windows 7 Professional

This is the most expensive, most powerful and most ambitious project I've had to date. I'm getting all giddy waiting for the parts, and it isn't even mine. wheee.gif

Excuse me sir and/or ma'am, do you have a moment to spare to hear about our Lord Titan Z?

I've only got these parts so far:

The Lian Li:








This thing is an absolute beast. This is the first time I've dealt with a Lian-Li before and these things are big, heavy and beautiful. The build quality is excellent and the steel is thick. I actually felt bad touching it without gloves. Like I was tainting it or something.

The twin Xeons:


and the good old Crucial M4:


I'll update as soon as I get the next parts. I expect them to come in on Tuesday. So stoked. thumb.gif

Also, I'll take my Canon 30D to take pictures instead of using the iPad. Sure the pictures look ok, but they're nowhere near the quality of my 30D and for a project like this, I REALLY want to document it using my best equipment.

I know right? I thought the same thing when the guy approved the quote. I thought, I'd have to downgrade a few things to get the approval. I was blown away when I got the call and said "DO EET".

I actually got the newest parts on Tuesday, but I've been so busy at work, I was only able to unpack today. Here's the motherboard. It's an ASUS Z9 PE-D8 WS. Dual 2011 processors, 7 PCI-E x16 slots and more SATA ports than I know what to do with. BEAST!









It's... beautiful...

The PSU is a Seasonic X-1250. 1250 watts of flawless victory.







I've never held a PSU this manly before. It's like holding Chuck Norris' PSU. I felt it's power...

2 Western Digital Caviar Blacks 1TB.


2x Kingston 32GB 1333MHz DDR3 RAM = 64GB!


Twin Dynatron R17 server-grade coolers, ready for action!


PNY nVidia Quadro 4000 professional graphics card. It's not meant for gaming, it's meant for WORK!





I would've liked to get two of these babies, though. Oh well.

Hopefully I'll be able to get started on this thing tomorrow. It's been a hell of a week.
