Rate My First Workstation

Recommended Posts

Guys... I hope that I didn't missfire with this machine.
There was an auction where there was no detailed description, only pictures.
From these pictrures some thing what I could read of easily, or guess what it is.

So what I find out is that the following:
Motherboard is an ASUS SAGE X299 (the main give away where the heatsink and the Workstation logo)

Graphic cards are Gigabyte Aorus 1080 Ti Waterforce first edition.  I google searched everything on it, was hoping to find something more information of them, but I am 99 percent sure that my ques is correct.
















Power Supply is an EVGA 1600 T2, readable information


On the motherboard picture you can clearly see that the CPU is watercoolded, but I didn't recognise the pump and thats why I cant assume the power of it.
Same goes for the Ram, only the maker G.Skill is sure and thats a 4 by something.
I know that the machine is in Working order.
And they are throwing an extra Dell P2717H monitor to it.

I hope that there is an i9 7900 x or higher in the CPU slot and 64 Gb of ram.
It was sold today and the transport will be on the weekend or early next week.
And please tell me your suggestions about the machine, and how much money would you pay for?
If it arives I will tell the final price of it, and the full spec list.

And here is the FULL Picture gallery of it!

Certainly a high powered machine by all means, but the real question as to whether it was a "misfire" comes down to the price of it.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B


Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.


Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

Damn! Looks like a beast. What are your plans for it?

My plans...
I am a Civil Engineer, I could use it's power for work.
But I will lend the Power for science first. I will fold the Heck out of it. And After that will be used as a daily driver at the Home office, and maybe some gaming with it, (finally in 4k I hope).
