Thread: And so it begins...

  1. Arrow And so it begins...

    My next computer has started ordering procedure:

    I have just ordered the cpu for $1000

    When completed this will be one of the highest preforming desktop pcs on earth. I will also be creating a series of articles detailing it's construction and customization and publishing them on the new website when it launches.

    So this is where all the Admin fees are going :P

    I've just started an i7 build myself, hoping to have everything settled by the end of the month. Whats your spec list looking like so far?

    Using (off top of my head so names could be off) the

    Ausus p6t deluxe
    Kingston Hyper X 3gb @ 2ghz
    2x 15,000rmp SAS drives raid 0
    1x 280
    1x X-Fi
    2x 120mm quad radiators
    1x cpu water block
    3x ram water blocks
    1x water blocks for m/b ect
    10x Silent 120mm fans @70cfm
    2x 200+cfm fans
    4x silent 80mm fans
    2x 268gph pumps
    1x pump control system
    3x 1TB storage drives(rad-5)
    1x 1200W psu
    1x 300w psu
    2x full tower cases
    Xx Silencing material

    Some of the stuff was already purchased over a year ago. Completed costs estimated at: $5000-$6000

    Life expectancy is 8 years with 1 500$ upgrade.

    Salvage value is estimated at 20 years, 40% of the budget will be salvageable after 12 years.

    There should be no need for a Silver Bullet III caliber system until after 2020.

    $5000+ and only 1 280

    What do you plan to do with it?

    Next winter there is a (much) better gpu coming out and so I am just getting this one for a year, after that I plan to sell it or to try to use it as a ppu or something...

    Hopefully by summer time everyone who visits this site will know how to make a computer just like it and how to do all the customizations.

    I am really excited to see how well it does in bonic!

    I take it you got the i7 965.

    I'll be starting my build in January. Of course with a lower spec i7. I for one don't need all that power of the EE, it will be quad+ however.

    On a side note, If it were me I'd hang on to the single 280 for a PPU and Cpu off load. All those cores will come in handy when all the kinks are worked out and the OS and apps can use them efficiently.
