I'm new here, but I've done a few builds from time to time...


Short summary

Here are the specs:

Supermicro X10DRG-Q
2x E5-2699 v4 (44 cores/ 88HT) (3.7ghz turbo)
512GB ram DDR4 2400mhz ecc reg
(QUAD SLI) 4 Titan Xp
2x Samsung NVMe 961Pro pcie 3.0 (os drives)
10x Samsung 850 Pro SSD RAID (apps drive)
LG 31MU97z 4096x2160 true 4K rev C
modded P5 case, Noctua heatsinks
Digital power supply 1600w
Windows Server 2012 R2 Data Center, Ubuntu 15


Fully functional
Board allows use of all 7 slots while using 4 sli cards

Using 2 NVMe 950 Pro

Will be putting one pane of glass on the front

Runs quiet and cold

Build pains, tweaks and optimization are to come

Case was heavily modified to accommodate HUGE motherboard, power supply, and the equivalent of 11 pci slots

Had to come up with a way to hold and keep cool 10 ssd 850 pro drives


Nothing, absolutely nothing was easy about any of this


Anyhow enjoy some pics


Opinions?

Ok cinebench score


Ok read and write score

the board has no audio jack on the back, but does have the standard HD header

The board has audio, a'97, and HD7
Audio is alive and well, and gaming

I used the HD out and mic in

I made a custom output to the connector on the board, I put audio in and out on the back of the case spine, green and pink, see picture

I'm running MS Data Center, but I'm pleasantly surprised how well Ubuntu is running on it.
Still, getting to 100% UEFI was daunting, similar to a house of cards

What did you use for a case. I've got a x9drg-qf (out for rma for the last 2 months - ( supermicro rma socks ass).

I'm going to have 4 xeon phis hanging off of mine. So far case wise I have been looking at plywood and PlexiglassPlexiglass.

Thanks

Doh, 950 NVME :eek:

Should be P3700 2TB based on rest of specs to actually perform very-well in mixed work load, which this 'in one' system will be doing always.

Other than that... OMG AWESOME!!! :D :D :D

Venturi welcome to the forum. It's good to see you branching out from 2cpu.com
I have not been to 2cpu for a long time but I do think STH has a fairly high proportion of folks with dual/ quad CPU systems.
