Building a rendering server

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, I have no idea about server grade components and was inspired by the build linus did with the dual cpu server grade computer, which was cheap as chips :D

 

I want to beable to do what LTT do where they ingest footage and transcode it, as I do lots of editing work and it takes so long with a i7 3700.

 

I will need hyper threading and really I want someone to suggest some components that are relatively cheap maybe $500.

i would use e5 2670's . But dual socket lga 2011 boards are expensive. If you want , you can pick up two westmere EP 10 core xeons for even cheaper , and get a dual lga 1366 or dual lga 1567 board , which are also cheaper.

 

Edit , also westmere xeons can be overclocked.
