    Check this out. I am not kidding I am saving for a build. I should have it built with in 6 months. The maximum build.
    Let me know what you think.

    EVGA announced a new high performance motherboard known as the EVGA Classified SR-X. This motherboard features dual CPU support, 4-way SLI support, SATA III 6GB/s, SAS, USB 3.0 and more.
    The Classified SR-X also supports up to 96GB of Quad-Channel DDR3 1600MHz+ RAM with its 12 DIMM slots. There are 7 PCI-E 3.0 16/8x slots on the board. Other features include onboard Bluetooth, PCI-E disable switches, triple BIOS support, EZ voltage read points, an onboard CPU temperature monitor, and DIMM disable switches.

    Looks quite fancy and expensive, but then again I don't know much about computer specs :razz:.

    Is it worth it?

    Huh you are fantasising right?

    That would be like over amazing overkill $5000+ rig. Id love to see updates on this build if it is true and pics!

    5k would be a bare minimum for this once you added up all the parts you would need, mine is gearing over 10k. I cant discuss how I am affording this but I will have it built, I hope with in 6 months. Maybe sooner, and I may be making 2, one for me , one for my brother.

    You won the lottery or something man? :razz: Keep us updated with those pics!

    Your compiles will take a few seconds O.o

    I am talking with a guy currently making sure the "Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-4650L " is compatible with the SR-X, the 4650 is a Q2 release and the SR-X may not run it even though the SR-X runs the E5's. Crossing my I's and doting my T's :silly:

    Man i cant wait for this build, finally i have something to stare at pointlessly for hours. I will feel like an art expert.

    This is fucking overkill. Unless you plan on running 100 programs at once, compile terabytes of information, and deal with thousands of hours of HD video a day, all while gaming on the highest settings on a tri 3D monitor setup @100FPS, then you won't need this.

    Buy a LGA 2011 Big Bang II like Anathema and save 50% of your cash. Btw, one 7970 OC'd to a 680's clocks runs any game max settings on a TRI-MONITOR SETUP.

    I forgot to mention I am also going to go to cal poly for BA Software ENG and maybe going to MA is they offer it later ^^

    PS. I want to run the E7-8870 as long as its compatible ^^

    Ha i wont have a pc as good as the one your getting for the next 10 years. I wonder how fast your boot time will be? How many SSDs are you planning on? The full RAID setup?

    Here is a rough pre build, may change
    (x2) Kingston HyperX SH100S3B/480G 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
    (x2) Rosewill LIGHTNING Series LIGHTNING-1000 1000W Continuous @50°C,80 PLUS GOLD Certified
    (x1) LIAN LI PC-P80 Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case
    (x1) G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 64GB (8 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3
    "I can get up to 96 gig though"

    Your gunna have 64GB or RAM? You can fit Windows on your RAM? You will have an almost 1TB SSD? Your PC will use 2000W? Wow the weather people will be comping to YOU for their simulations.

    I upped my ram to this, I am building as I type this
    (x3)CORSAIR Vengeance 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600=96gig RAM

    I am now trying to find some RAM cooling heat sinks, also browsing a few different pumps I may run 2 individual separate cooling pumps. GFX cards may have their own pump with ram and the CPU and other parts will have their own pump.

    I sure wish I could build my own server, I'd use this motherboard, get a couple of 6-core Ivy Bridge CPU's, OC them to 5GHz, and send them off to Limestone. Server lag would no longer... Er, nevermind. *knocks on wood*

    (Knowing SourceDS, it would find another reason to lag). :razz:

    lol too true

    This is a case of my penis is small so look at my ... computer. 10k? I'll believe you when I see pictures of you with a finished build.

    Buying this and another i7 3960x extreme. swagswagswag.

    what case? case labs please. it is the only worthy case company for that board. either the TX10-V or the MH10 case. radspace for days. just expect another ~$150 on shipping alone and some time to put it together. :wink:

    but you can do sick custom paintjobs on it because it assembles/disassembles easily.
