Hmm. 4 x 3 slot cards on a 10 slot case. How does that work?

on a system like this u would be better off buying 6 256gb SSDs and running them in raid 0 if money dont matter only $300 more if u get kingston ssdnow drives but much better performance and slightly more space http://pricespy.co.n...t.php?p=1025330

On a system like this he/she would be better off having compatible components , and/or a lower fantasy threshold


But as to your suggestion ... NO, I dont think so . The fastest data storage will be a pci-e OCZ revodrive 3 with multiple sandforce controllers and the bandwidth of a x4 pci-slot

For sure, but you'll get even better performance by taking several of them and having software RAID0 over the lot.

But for really extreme theoretical builds there is no excuse for not getting cheaper parts like the K rather than X CPU and such, where the price is better for the same performance. And it requires water cooling anyway, as far as I'm concerned. The only reason I'm letting it away with only one CPU is that Sandy Bridge LGA2011 Xeons and dual-socket gaming-suitable boards aren't out yet.

The revodrive 3 x2 is 4 sandforce controllers in a RAID 0 configuration on a single dual slot pci-e board .

How many SATA 600 connectors on a Sandybridge -e motherboard?

I know you can't get it with individual drives, at least without a (or several) SATA/RAID cards. But what I'm saying is several Revodrive 3s in software RAID to get even better performance than with just one. But I realise (and I hope you do to) that you can't fit many (if any) of them in when you've enough graphics cards to have a build expensive enough to deserve that sort of drive.

My point is that you get 4 sandforce controllers in RAID 0 with a single Revodrive 3 x2 card

And if you Daisy chain conventional SSD's on a socket 2011 you can also only use 4 since that's how many SATA 600 ports it can support

That should mean that a single revodrive 3 x2 will perform better than any ssd RAID array you could build on socket 2011 because of the X79 chipset limitations

get a EVGA SR-X with 2 Sb-E xeons or something, or just go balls out like maxhishine and get a EVGA sr-2 and 2 nehalem xeons :3, xspc rasa/ek open loop > any closed system, and get a 1500W fully modular silverstone stryder, and get triple dell IPS monitors

I though I made it clear I was talking about multiple Revodrive 3 x2 cards rather than SATA drives, but I can't have. Software RAID will work with any storage, even multiple partitions on the same drive (yes, I know that would be pointless...).

Yes, that's the way to go, but the SR-X and associated CPUs aren't out yet. Also, the SR-2 isn't listed on PriceSpy (as far as I know). Definitely those monitors, and they'd better be 30" too. And I hope that PSU is enough for when both CPUs and all four graphics cards are well overclocked!

Not when you've got 22 SSDs!

You need two E5-2687W CPUs, not those ones. They might be cheaper, but they are faster too. And you need two CPU coolers – one for each CPU. But then again, you may as well get a much cheaper cooler as none of those Xeons can be overclocked.

Yes, LGA1366 (or LGA1156, or older) ones! :P But there are no SB or IB Xeons that have either unlocked multipliers or FSB Straps (to use a 133 MHz or 166 MHz effective base clock), unfortunately.

Four Titans would demolish two 690s.

Exactly. And what's more, three Titans would demolish two 690s as well, assuming that it is correct that Titans only support three-way SLI.

I disagree. You want the 30" version.
