This is going to get old very fast.

 

As for the video, super neat plan.

I was wondering what the naming scheme was for a while, and then I realized it's probably based on places in canada.

Makes sense, I suppose.

 

If there's going to be a separate rendering server, what is it going to be running?

Windows with adobe's multi-machine rendering setup? Or something more high-grade?

You should try to do giveaways every 2 weeks/month from sponsors like tool kit,keyboards, cooling system, cheero power plus, audio books and a lot of cool stuff :);)  :P

Not sure why asrock has such a bad name - almost everytime I look up or hear about their products I see some really kick ass stuff with pretty smart layouts and balling price/performance. Also you never hear anything about reliability issues - you hear that from MSI boards a lot and those are usually more expensive.

I think asrock motherboards are great they are in my server and my htpc  and with the 10gbs nic I may get one for my workstaion.

but 2 out of the 4 ram slots in the server have failed and i can't use them THERE GOES 32 GB OF RAM IT BLOWS :angry:

If you're going to build a kickass rendering machine I think it should have to beat Barnacules build just for bragging rights. You need at least 5 more cores on each CPU than him and you need Titan X's instead of 980's :P

I wanted to rake my eyes out and stick knives in my ears while listening and watching this video.  It just wasn't interesting at all to me and so I wait on the day some PhysX benchmark videos come out to make me forget about what I saw and just heard.  :)


Too many ****ing games!  Back log 4 life! :S

That sounds re-donk-u-lous!
You guys are insane! And I hope Intel is too, because that dual Xeon render server sounds epic!

When you move all this into your new office, I hope you will install a working toilet and sink in your server room; you know, because its not a true LMG server room without running water and working plumbing... ;)
