    just wanted to share my dual xeon e5-2670 gpu rendering build,

    specs.

    dual e5-2670
    Intel S2600cp
    128gb ecc ram
    gtx 1070
    evga 750 gq
    phantek enthoo pro
    cm 212 evo
    adata 256 ssd

    my only issue with this build is the super long boot time its like a min or 2 before showing something on screen.

    i have a question can i put another gpu on the black pcie slot, i doest matter if its 2.0 only im only going to use it fstorm gpu rendering..

    Hi thanks for posting this build, I built a system based on one of these S2600CP boards for rendering Blender files with Cycles render. Sorry can't answer your question about GPU in black socket. But how do you find speed of rendering on GTX 1070 GPU compared to dual CPU rendering? I have a crappy GPU that is fine for display but no good for rendering, am thinking of upgrading but only if I get a good benefit on rendering compared to dual CPU, which is already pretty fast on these machines.

    This has to do with the RAM do error checking and correction before bootup. This is normal with this amount of RAM. Mine does the same thing (SuperMicro board) and most servers do as well. No system wants to boot with this much RAM unless they are certain that all the chips are OK.

    @Roy68 so far for gpu rendering in single gtx 1070 is on par with my dual xeon specially if you use fstorm render, the displacement is almost realtime, thats why i wanted to add 2 or 3 more 1070 if the motherboard will support it even if it run's only pcie 2.0

    here is a 30 second render on my gtx 1070 on 2k reso

    I bought this several months ago. It is sitting in my living room running VMs. If its a scam, it's a VERY clever one.

    I also bought this kit from Natex in May and they sent it to me in Norway. It was well packaged and everything in perfect order and has been working well ever since. I can definitely recommend them! There's a whole thread about those deals here on the forum and Pam seems to have been helpful answering questions as well.

    I got an email yesterday with a promo code 'BlackFriday', which gives you 5% off. Code expires 11/28/16.

    Thank you both for input, and thanks for code. I'm also from EU, how much did you pay for shipment?

    I paid $42.60 for shipping and then Norwegian 25% VAT on top of everything when it arrived (there is no toll on computers in Norway, but VAT is of course added), and a fee to the Norwegian Post for handling the import (approximately either €15 or €30, I can't remember), but I'm not sure how that works in other countries.
    I think I ended up at around 5400 NOK (~€600) in total. It's still a great deal in my opinion, since dual-socket motherboards are pretty rare on the used market here, and the cheapest new boards (Asus, with fewer DIMM slots) are available for about €330-350.

    Don't forget to look at the deals in the FOR SALE thread. Pam, Natex employee, post's stuff in there all the time. Feel free to message her about stuff.

    I can vouch for Natex's reliability and great customer service. Patrick would NOT let a company post here if they were not in the up and up.

    $33 each for E5-2670v1 C2s on Taobao, OEM (at least they claim), so if you do volume or have enough connections with the expatriate community it would be a cinch. I got a Q9650 yesterday for twice that

    Do you know if I need to be logged in for the coupon code to be reflected in the cart or if I need to place an order on phone and mention it?

    The code is only for selected items, you can contact them via mail and they will usually be nice and give 5% off anyways.

    Thanks for the reply, that tells me what I need to know, i.e. a lone GTX 1070 won't give me much of a performance hike over the dual xeons in rendering, plus with the CPUs I can use all my 64GB RAM. I'm not a pro so my funds are limited, just can't stretch to a multi GPU setup. These E5-2670 xeons + Natex S2600CP have been a stellar used deal for me, love my machine! So I'll probably wait it out until the next crazy deal comes along before I pull the trigger again.
    That's an awesome noise free render in 30 sec, great texture on the doughnuts! Interested to hear how you get along with the multi GPU beast!
