Windows 7: Time to build a monster

You have a nice speaking voice. The CPU is equally impressive!

So... planning on doing some OCing on that chip???

Curious what those cores can get to stable, and wondering if it might be worth an upgrade. I frequently do some stuff that can use them all, but wondering if it would be at the cost of performance for things that don't.

By far (currently about 144:1 with what I'm crunching these days) the main amount of compute performance comes from my GPUs though, at least for things that are well optimized to use them. I keep my GPUs and CPU crunching set so it just does its thing in the background while I game, or what have you, without interruption, so the GPUs and CPU are only about 70% loaded in the background on average. Helps keep temps/fan noise/dust buildup down a little too.

...

Would have definitely gone with another Asus MB myself, probably their WS board again (http://www.asus.com/us/Commercial_Se...tions/X99E_WS/), but... to each their own.



Darn it... why did you make me look this stuff up???

Quad 16x PCIe gen. 3 4-way SLIed EVGA Titan Black Superclocked cards would be so sweet (instead of just the 2-way I have now).

Thanks, everyone, for the compliments on the video. I'm working on another video highlighting the oddities I've come across so far, including the WEI and winstat mem things.

Wrend,

I'm going to research the ins-and-outs of OC before I do anything. I really don't want to do anything stupid and damage my new, expensive setup.

have you had chance to run any gpu benchmarks yet Kent? I expect your scores will go up considerably now your CPU is no longer bottlenecking it.
I guess you are still trying to get it working right at the moment though.

Paul,

I haven't run any GPU benchmarks yet, still trying to work the bugs out of the system.

Perhaps over the next few days I can get a bit of time here and there to install and run the odd benchmark.

Might want to check out this video below then too. Not all that promising and seems like a trade off between architectures and overclockability, concidering I'm able to hit a safe and stable all core clock rate of 4.6GHz fully loaded 24/7 on my 3930K. Guess the only real advantage for me would be the extra 2 cores/4 threads on the 5960X, DDR4 RAM, and the ≈72 PCIe lanes (allocated up to, though I would use 64 in a 416 configuration) on the new ASUS WS board I'm looking at. But then again, these estimates might be on the conservative side.

Any updates on the monster Kent? Did you manage to get her running everything properly yet?
