NM-I2011 Mounting-KitI'll give it a try!
Results: With all the fans on in the case (2x 140mm on top, 3x 1200mm on front, 1x exhausting 140mm at the back), and 120mm fan each atop the passive cooler, the temps jumped from ambient 34C to 72C and steadily rose 1C every couple seconds to slowly stabilize at 93C.
The issue I'm having is the lack of effective active coolers for the LGA3647 right now. I may have to duct each heatsink to a 120mm fan with a reducer I can fit on the side or top of the heatsink.
There's sufficient airflow through the case, now have to get heat into it. If anyone comes across an active (quiet) LGA3647 cooler, let me know!
I'm not sure that is correct info. 2011 or 2066 != 3647.
Adding to this and prices are dropping for V2 and will begin with V3/V4 as well. Even going from the W3690 to a E5 V1/V2 Xeon will be a noticeable performance improvement (particularly for 8c/16t and above+) especially since the W3690 is a 6c/12t processor.Cheapest 18 cores v3 right now is e5-2686 v3 for $600. i am building one of those. The v3 and v4 option will last at least another year if not more. even v2 with the 2696 v2 dual cpu setup is still very competitive.
Intel also substantially modified the price structure. In previous generations, there were Xeons E5 and Core i7 HEDT that were extremely similar in specs and usually at around the same price. But in the current generation, The 10 Core Xeon-W 2155 cost 450 U$D more than the equivalent Core i9 7900X. Heck, the 8-Core Xeon-W 2145 is still 120 U$D more expensive.W-2145 Xeon -SP is not bad. 8 cores at 3.7ghz. turbo to 4.5 but does this turbo value only apply to 1 cores usage? but $1100 for the cpu is quite steep price. Are your apps really only can use up to 8 cores and not more? because if it can use more cores, something like a dual 2696 v2 would completely blow it out of the water with much much cheaper memory.
Half the cores and the same clock speed. We need to see benchmarks. But this isn't really exciting.It's a better fit for my workload and priorities. The W-2145 looks like the one I will get, and I finally have something that is worth upgrading from my current W3690 for.
