    Default Motherboard question

    I saw this mobo after researching duo proccesor boards and I want to know... is the EVGA classified SR-2 the most powerful motherboard? I know it goes overboard on proccesing power and price. Just want to know how powerful it really is.

    amung the best with overhead to take the punishment of over clocking, there are many variables
    so you have to answer your own question
    because everyone else will have a different opinion

    whats your target processor?
    find the socket for it and sellect the new egg options, chosing only the best of the best available.
    at the end you should have about 5 boards to chose in a side by side comparison.
    new egg llitteraly gives you the option to list the features next to eachother, lined up to evaluate them.

    again. the answer you chose will always be different from a different person.

    You know that you will need two processors, and that this is a $600 - $700 BOARD. and if your looking at the X79 version, I believe your also going to have a total of 16 dimm slots. Wait for the new Z87 boards to arrive, we will be posting a pre-view of one or two of the new MSI Z87 boards

    "Powerful" depends on your definition. It is a dual socket board which can handle two extremely powerful CPUs. In that sense, if you are into rendering and workstation applications, then yes it is a very powerful motherboard. If you're into gaming, then it won't help your framerates. But it'll suck an enormous amount of power from your wall socket, so in THAT sense, yes it's very powerful.

    See what I did there?

    Would it handle a server of 40 peeps well? If each player needs enough power to render? Also its good to know because I like making 3d movies and YTP.

    That's a waist of a good high-end board, but it's your build to do as you see fit. Two 3970 X chips are going to run you $2100, if you go with the 690s, or Titans, that's another $2000. CPU's, GPU's and the cost of the board your already at $4700 and you still have memory and cooling to buy lol The question is, do you really want to spend close to $6000 on a server build ? there's cheaper and better options available.

    Well for rendering, encoding, etc it's an excellent board because it's dual socket. Any workstation-type applications like that are a black hole for CPU resources (and memory), so it'll rock.

    As for server, it should do just fine, but you may also want to look into an SSD, possibly RAID setup, to speed things up. I doubt you'll be CPU-bound, but your file system could be a pig, so get something FAST.

    Then, of course, you could consider that depending on what software you use you might get faster results employing a graphics card or two to do some of the work.

    Another way forward might be to leave overclocking behind and build a work station based on 8 core cpu's in the sure knowledge that the extra stresses of overclocking will not effect you.

    Rumour control says that when IB-E is released then you may well be able to buy cpu's with up to 15 cores (for a price).

    Would you fancy spending maybe $5K per cpu, maybe $5K on ram and another $5K for bits and pieces like ssd's

    Two phrases come to mind... How long is a piece of string and the sky is the limit.

    Holy **** 15 cores? What is that going to be? 12 Mhz? I'd pay 3k for a proccesor like that, If I needed it. Jeez.
