32GB RDIMMs are much more common and less expensive than 64GB.
Since the OP built the thing, it's 32GB * 16 = 512GB. 32GB RDIMMs are much more common and less expensive than 64GB.
This is a Uber build so I’m not discounting the build which is amazing. But mining ethereum at 350mh/s can be done for much cheaper. I’m doing so with a $4000 rig made with a 12 GPU biostar board and a dozen RX580.
I decided to build a compact, small but powerful pc in a desktop /mid size .
Here’s what I built tonight
Prototype 1 (my personal pc)
Dual Xeon E5-2699 v4 44 cores / 88HT
Super micro X10DRG-Q ver 1.10
Heavily customized Th P3 case / glass panel
1 960 pro (2TB) (Os drive)
10 Samsung 850 (2TB each) RAIDed (Apps Drive)
512 GB RAM
4x TITAN V
1500W+ digital tiatanium PSU
Ubuntu, MS 2012 Server R2, MS 2016 Server
4k ProArt 329q monitor
Used for research, medical imaging, nuc med, isotopes, DB, and games

It's the giant lifted truck of computers.So there's this part of me that is snorting derisively and mocking such a silly build as unnecessary and overcompensating.
It's only because of jealousy though.
what an irony, posting up the ultimate rig on the last day of the internet
Now that you have your regular account back, whatever possessed you to name your second account Minimalist??? Nothing about your builds supports that username.
Sadly in 4 years it'll be as fast as a $250 3060 ti
i think i spot a sr-x in those pics
im suprised I dont see a sr-2 anywwhere on those lists i mean it was one of the best dual xeon board for abit and 1366 was a pretty fantastic socket.You are very observant
I still have that board
Its cool......I guess. Be a lot cooler if you had Noctua fans to match your heatsinks
Nice build with Quad GPUs
This must have been built for 3D cad? because it would have been OTT for games IMO
But to my understanding is it don't matter if the games run in 16/8x speed but for data processing this becomes quite important. On a single Xeon, you only have 40 PCIE lanes, and therefore the most you could run without multiplexers or switchers, which reduce speed is 2x 16 and 1x 8; the same thing holds for dual CPUs. MB 4 PCI-E 3.0 x16, 2 PCI-E 3.0 x8 (1 in x16), 1 PCI-E 2.0 x4 (in x8)
....but...the noctua fans are brown and beige!!! I couldn’t do it.
And the noiseblocker fans are quieter ( and not brown / beige)
