From G3258 to Dual Xeon E5-2670's

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I'm just creating this post to show the history of my PC and the changes it's gone through in just 3 years. So lets start from the beginning-

 

CHAPTER 1: FARORE

 



In the beginning there was Farore, named after the goddess of Wisdom from the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time- my all time favorite video game. It featured an overclocked Pentium G3258 and a GTX 750ti. It served me well in my freshmen year of high school and allowed me to play Battlefield 3, Titanfall and others on high settings with no issues.

CHAPTER 2: SCHWARZCHILD
 



Next there was Schwarzchild- named after the Schwarzchild Radius, a scientific term for the size an amount of mass must become in order for it to be so infinitely dense that it becomes a black hole something I learned about while interning at Brown University. It featured a i3-4150 and a GTX 960 which was heavily overclocked to give me smooth frame rates in every game.

CHAPTER 3: LITTLE ASS KICKER
 



For my 17th birthday Schwarzchild was upgraded and became Little Ass Kicker, or LAK for short. It was a huge step up with a new SLI ready motherboard, a i5-4690k, and a second GTX 960 as well as a new power supply. With this rig there was nothing I couldn't do gaming wise and I loved every second of it.

CHAPTER 4: MINI MONSTER
 



Then for some stupid fucking reason I thought selling my powerful hardware and shrinking down to Mini-ITX was a wonderful idea and so I dropped my PC into a Corsair 250D from a 350D and lived with a single GTX 960 again. This was a dark time.

CHAPTER 5: BEAST BOX
 



This brings us to today- I decided one day, "THIS IS NOT ENOUGH, I NEED MORE CORES, MORE RAM, MORE POWER!" and so I upgrade from a small case to a full blown server chassis with a dual socket motherboard, 32 processing threads, and 64GB's of RAM. I also grabbed a GTX 1060 6GB and am now enjoying ridiculously high frame rates in every game.

Now three, almost four years later this is where I am taking this monster off to college to study business and computer science next fall. It's been a hell of a ride and I'm sure there are a lot more upgrades to come.

No. CS GO has no ultra settings so it won't able to do that sorry

Can it run MS Paint in 60fps 8K MUSHD? (Mega Ultra Super HD)

No, he would need 7 Titan X Pascals in SLI to even get 5fps 144p.


And in the naked light I saw

Ten thousand people, maybe more.

 

Pyo.

Any reason for a 850W PSU? Even 2 CPUs wont need that much (Why does the 850W B2 even exist?). Any reason for two Xeons? Are you doing editing or rendering? Same with the 64Gb of ram. If only gaming (The previous builds would suggest so), then 16Gb is enough and the Xeons wont help. 


Please quote our replys so we get a notification and can reply easily. Never cheap out on a PSU, or I will come to watch the fireworks.

I am not sure there are mobo with 7 slots of pcie 16

I am not sure if there would be enough SLI bridge

 

I am pretty sure Paint is a program to make picture and as far as I know, pictures don't move (gif doesn't cound but how do you pronounce it?)

Ultra is there. Only uber-1337 computers have access to it, though.

 

Seriously, OP, nice rig. And yes, I get why you'd build a dual-Xeon beast with a GTX 1060. I'm married to a programmer. ;)

Don't hate just because your rig can't access the Ultra menu. :P

1. I went with a 850W power supply because it has 2 EPS 8 pin power connectors as each CPU requires one.
2. I went with 2 Xeons because I do a lot of video editing and 3D Modeling

3. See number two.

I hope that answers your questions. :)

lol a 1060. What type of work are you doing on it?

I do a lot of video editing and 3D modeling but I also play a lot of video games. This rig serves many purposes.

My PC bypasses ultra and goes straight to MEGA settings level. AFAIK very high is the top in CS:GO lol.

Nah well I used to have pretty skins until I quit because of the bull shit derank after a win bull shit and now I just collect rare very high float battle scarred skins

and how much fps do you get on ultra mega mode with that card and cpu? at what resolution?

 

seriously if I have that much money I would find a mobo and go with 2 of 6950x because why not

Oh, I forgot to mention this entire build was just about $1000 or the cost of .58 6950x's. 

 

I haven't tested CS:GO but I can max the game out and get well over 144FPS.
