New Dual Xeon Build

The time has come to move on to something different. My X99 machine is being moved from my computer shop to my home. And it is being replaced with a dual Xeon machine.

It is still a work in progress as I just got it up and running on Friday and haven't had much time to do anything with it.

At the time being I have a pair of Noctua NH-U12S coolers on it, but may end up with some water cooling for the looks. And the case has so much freakin' room for it!

The Specs:

Intel Xeon E5-2695 V3 X2 (14 cores/28 threads each)
Noctua NH-U12S X2
Asus Z10PE-D16 WS (mainly picked because of the IPMI built in over the D8 model)
Crucial 32GB (4X8G Registered DDR4-2133 - need four more to make it quad channel but it was start to get it going
Samsung 950 Pro M.2 512GB
Very old WD Green 1TB for games that complain about a network installation like Blizzard.
Gigabyte GTX 980 G1 Gaming (stole from the X99 build)
Thermaltake Core X9
EVGA Supernova 1300 G2
Windows 10 Pro 64
Corsair K95 RGB
Corsair M95

I use three screens, the center which is 4K and the outside two are 1440P. Replacing those 1440P with 4K to bring the 1440s home as well.

The audio on it I would say is better then that on my Rampage V Extreme. I found that pretty surprising.







You can see they were originally the same orientation, but later on switched to push on one and pull on the other. It was a big pain in the ass with how close they were and getting the fan clips on proper. I had to do some experimenting with one CPU, which meant I had to remove one and redo it.

Now those red PCIe power cables look nasty. They used to look good with the Rampage VE.

Glad you got the images sorted out (first post needs fixing if possible)

Only thing I can say really is shame about the ThermalTake case :/

Fixed those images. I moved over to the new computer and never figured out how to get the Lightroom plugin to copy its data over as well. So I had to create a fresh album and start over with the images on my server. Otherwise I ended up with two albums of the same name.

I like the case. Works out a lot better then the Switch 810 I was using which barely fits the board. I wanted more of a cube style.

ThermalTake is a dirty word for any true enthusiast. #thermaltacky

I like that case. I don't like how empty it looks right now though.

I don't see anything tacky about this case in particular. However, for years they have been and I haven't bought a Thermaltke product in many years. I think they are finally starting to come back around again with this new TT line. But anyways all that really matters is if I enjoy it as it is mine. I don't recall there being much to choose from in terms of large cube style cases other then Case Labs for about 4 times the price.

Today my NZXT Hue+ came in so that is in there. Still waiting for my new side panel window to get done with a laser etching of my company in the side.

I do have water cooing sitting in my Performance PC shopping cart I keep getting annoying emails about to purchase. That will take up some of that empty space once I do it.

Don't listen to the haters BigDaddy. TT, even though they are copycat crooks, DO make some nice stuff from time to time. Your case is one of them, and their wall mountable Core P5 is sweet case too.
