PC Limit

8 minutes ago, LoGiCalDrm said:

64-128gb is max RAM consumer motherboard can utilize.

 

HDD... well, you can get 8tb drives, most mobos have 8+ SATA headers, you can add more with PCIe cards... So... Have you seen Petabyte project?

You can get 14TB drives as well. 16TB drives coming in the near future.

That's a solid 112TB (14TB x 8) on just the motherboard headers.

You can get anything you want at home, not that it's practical or any useful but you can, you can buy server racks and stack them up, money is the limit really

Well theres a few million for the hardware, then the electricity supply, oh and the cooling required to reach a fraction of a percent above absolute zero. Too much?

I can jam 192 GB memory in mine, got 6 SATA ports and 10 SAS, just don't like the price of SAS drives!

Jamming is one thing, OS support another. Though when line is between supercomputer and non-supercomputer, servers still fall in to non-supercomputer part.

It should support it, it's a workstation, just need 12 registered modules. Just checked, it's 8 SAS ports not 10. There goes the extra 30TB of storage I wanted for McDondals memes :(

Just gonna say that people are taking me too literally at the moment. I'm implying how odd OPs questioning is, having line between supercomputer and non-supercomputer. I don't keep up in latest tech to know that 8tb isn't biggest drive you could get. Thats based on last time I checked what prices were.
