    Yeah I got four 2680v2s for 700. So I guess there’s that. But man sky lake-d is a beast at hashing I had no idea.

    Sorry man, "userbenchmark" is pretty useless and anyone with basic knowledge about Intel micro architecture would know that haswell cores have little over Ivy-bridge! So no way in hell that a sucky es with a max multi of 23 would even come come close on single threaded performance against a E5-2680 V2 that has a single core turbo bin of 36!

    Can you post a cinebench 15 of multi and single treaded performance?

    Hello everybody ,
    I have been reading this thread for days and the other threads related to the Intel board S2600CP2J, because I have almost no experience with the server boards, and I ordered this intel model to build my workstation.
    I took this board becuse it was cheapest that I could find to have 2x2011 CPUs(150$ with US shipping).It should work as a workstation not as a server.
    Now I need to order my other components.
    This build will be used for everyday things and I need to run 2-3 Linux systems in same time over VMware workstation(don't know any other way, VBox don't like problems with setup) on Win 10 as host . I am very new to this WMware use.
    CPUs that I want to buy are E5 2650L or E5 2650L V2 , nice number of cores and I don't do to much demanding things at the same time, and I would like to see that the consumption and the heat small as possible , and I dont think I need more then 32GB/64 of RAM.
    Question about RAM , for optimal performance I read that it is best to have number of modules as CPUs memory channels , in this case that should be 4 times for each CPU , that means 8 modules of RAM. Should I go for RAM on 1333 or 1600 Is there a visible difference in usage? Is it maybe better to get 4x8GB two for each CPU and later got more RAM, or go for 8x4GB on start.
    PSU I have is one on picture , it has shot cables but I have ordered extension cables 8pin and 24pin, think it should be good enough for this build.
    I don care about case since I want to go as cheap sa possible in the beginning. It will be out of case for some time.
    Is there anything that I should pay attention with this build?
    I want to know what you guys think about this. Any suggestion is welcome.
    I come from non-English area so please forgive me if there are mistakes in writing.

    PS. Hope putting this here is no problem , or should I open new Thread

    You should go for a V2, and you can get 14900 (1866mhz memory for almost the same price as 1333mhz or 1600mhz). There is no reason to go for a L cpu. They have low clock speed for one reason, and that is for rack cabinets/rooms with poor cooling. It would be much more power efficient to just get a single 2680 V2. You get better overall performance too and no NUMA overhead.

    You find plenty of 16GB 14900r modules at 60 USD with sellers that has more than 4 modules. The cheapest I find for 12800r is 57 USD and 52 USD for 10600R. Even 8500R now costs over 40 USD. I got a few of them for just 25 USD one year ago.

    Samsung M393B2G70DB0-CMA 16GB PC3-14900R 2RX4 ECC Server Memory FREE SHIPPING | eBay

    16GB DDR3-1600 PC3-12800R 2Rx4 DDR3L SDRAM Server Memory | eBay

    Samsung 16GB PC3L-10600R DDR ECC Reg VLP RAM Memory M392B2G70BM0-YH9 (EX1) | eBay

    For 8GB modules the price is almost exactly 50% of 16GB modules, so not worth it in my opinion.

    If I go for 16gb modules it will bo too much money for me if I need more modules.

    If you go for 1 cpu you only need 4 modules.

    That's what I thought. About twice as much as I would pay for slower DDR3.

    Where do you find 1333mhz for 30 USD? I've not seen it below 45 USD for the last 3 months. Now recently its over 50 USD.

    That PSU is only 520 W..... Don't know what video card you will have but 520W is only good for running a dual cpu and MB and storage by itself with the onboard video.

    If you putting in anything half decent like at least a gtx950, really need to go for at least 700W.... Also, make sure to get a psu with dual 8pin CPU power cable since that MB need it.... what's the brand name of the psu? definitely don't want get cheap on psu for these kind of hardware...

    I will use some normal card , at least in the beginning it will be like that.This is the PSU
    Supermicro PWS-521-1H 520W 1U Multi-Output Server Power Supply

    but I will have to fine something better with more SATA connectors and maybe 6-8pin VGA.
    Can you recommend me something that is not too much money , I don't mind to buy used one too.

    I already own this supermicro PSU from the link, got used one for like 20$, but thanks for suggestions .
    I looked your links and bought the one from your links EVGA SuperNOVA 750 B2 110-B2-0750-VR 80+ BRONZE 750W it is great deal now for 69.99 , you have 10$ mail rebate to on that price but I don't think I can use that.

    EVGA SuperNOVA 750 B2 110-B2-0750-VR 80+ BRONZE 750W Semi Modular Includes FREE Power On Self Tester Power Supply - Newegg.com

    I don't think I can use 10yr warranty since I am not from US, so warranty is nothing important at this moment.

    Thanks again

    2680 V2. is way too expensive here and now. it is $150 in China and will be under $100 next year.
