High end Server Build

Hi guys,, im new here and i need some help. Im trying to learn how to build a high-end server with a 16 core processor as my basis, can u give me advice or probably a list of things that i need to consider for building a high end server. It would would be good also if you can give me the exact components to run this 16 core processor,,, (newbie here,,,just ignore my grammar and how dumb i am to this stuff,,,,but im a quick learner,,,,just need someone to explain it to me) thanks xD.

I'm going to be blunt: If you're that much of a (self-proclaimed in your original post) "newbie" with this stuff, starting with a "16-core server" build is not what you should be doing.

Just to be clear, building a server is fun and you learn a lot. But I'll tell you, don't make one. Buy one. You have warranty and onsite engineers for help. In companies you'll never be asked to build a server. A server is designed to do something- can be small scale, like a local web server or something big- AD, DNS, DHCP, VL, Remote Access, virtualization. You PC can be a server. So if you know how to build a PC, you can build a server. Thing is, the parts for a server are cherry picked and have custom firmware to ensure absolute perfect operation.

Well,, i could actually buy one,, but,,, building a server caught my interest and all the more since watching Linustechtips..   i got a hold of this Intel Xeon e5-2698 v3 so i thought of building a server that uses this one "not on a whim it cause a ton but, i could also use this to replace the server to where i work" .
