Sweet! I watched many reviews including LTT with X79 and E5-2697 V2.
I'm considering E5-2690 V2 and E5-2697 V2. We'll see!
Linus was able to push that E5-2697 V2 to 113 QPI Clock, which gives 3.39GHz.

CPU: X5690
Mobo: ASUS P6T7 WS SuperComputer X58 1366, Moded BIOS
RAM: 48GB (6x8GB) HyperX Savage DDR3 1866
GPU: 2 x NVidia 1080 Ti 11GB
SSD/HDD: Samsung 950 Pro 512GB; HGST 3TB; WD Red 3TB; WD Red 2TB; Maxtor 350 GB; HP SAS 300GB 15000Rpm
PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 1600 P2 80+ PLATINUM 1600W
Case: CM StormTrooper Black

How about that?

SLI is dead. Using 2-way is mostly pointless these days, so 4 is totally pointless. Btw, After Effects can easily gobble more than 32GB RAM. I built an AE system for someone back in 2013 (3930K @ 4.7, 64GB @ 2133), his test job used 48GB. AE hammers the entire system. FYI I replaced his system recently with a Ryzen 2700X which completely thumped the old oc'd 3930K, with far lower power consumption and basically zero noise (changed the GPUs to 2x 780 Ti, which was cheap). See my updated results:

For CB R20 it was 57% faster than a 3930K @ 4.7.

Infact I'm changing three systems overall, so I'll have a WS to sell soon and two E-WS boards, bunch of 3930Ks and a 3970X. I'm going to keep one WS for future benching and for the moment my editing system will remain an E-WS with a 4960X and 32GB/2400 (waiting for Zen3 4950X for a full platform shift).

I'm using 950 Pro NVMe with my x58 using SSD PCI-E Adapter: Angelbird Wings PX1 PCIe x4 M.2 Adapter and 512GB NVMe M.2 SSD Kit.
Still running my old x58, but soon will change the motherboard and CPU.

Nice benchmark list! Thanks!!
You have almost every major X79 board, the one I didn't see was the Rampage IV Black Edition.

Why do you have so many workstations?

Are you in the UK?
