    I now have this incredibly urgent need to build a new computer...only problem is that when I do, it ends up being expensive. Damn you all for waving your hardware crack in front of this (formerly) recovering addict...

    Sigh...

    I can make it easier for you and sell you my dual X5670 rig. It only has 48GB ram, 6950, 256 SSD and 2 2TB hard drives in a Corsair D800 case. Small compared to the others strutting there E-PEEN!

    Isn't this enabling him?

    Seems mighty convenient to offload your rig right before summer. Trying to save on the power bill?

    Just razzin him. I know the feeling for wanting to build another. Doubt I'll ever sell my crown jewel, wouldn't get anything near what I put into it. Would be nice to build a new 8 or 10 core dually but the prices are way out of my price range. As for the power bill, I just reduce the number of thread crunching from 24 to 6. If WCG could get more GPU projects going, not really worth building dually CPU, but build for dual GPU instead. Cheaper too.

    I'm just teasing myself. I've been looking into getting another DP workstation or server, and its only been about a months since I got my xw8600 workstation. It's probably a good thing I don't live closer to North Jersey and Brooklyn. I"ll probably change my tune once summer gets here.

    I'm eyeing up these two sealed retail E5-2687Ws that I bought last year, but haven't built with yet...I've been strong until now, but I think it's time for a bender...

    Here's something to think on:
    A dualie E5-2687W has app 30% more computational power at default 3400MHz on turbo than a dualie X5690 does at 4200MHz and runs cooler and draws a hell of a lot less elec on load.
    I've seen 350W draw at 3100, 420W at 3400 and the dual X5690 was close to 600W

    Fair enough...but Ivy-EP is happening soon. I'll be building a Haswell system for a utility/guinea pig/miscellaneous system when they come out, but I'm torn as to whether or not I can resist cracking open these CPUs in the meantime.

    hmm, agreed..Think on this: The new IB xeons will toss out a cost that will make you think your SB xeons were cheap..
    My guess is the top 12 core IB xeons will be close to $3000.00 EACH..That's just a guess but probably very close and I'm wondering what they will make available for speed bins.
    We've seen the heat issues with just a 4 core 3770K so that makes me wonder what happens when you try to run 12 of those cores at even 3GHz
    mainstream watercooling anyone?

    So Intel's jacking up the price, eh? No surprise there...

    Heat issues, heat smissues...meh. I've been looking for an excuse to water cool something...so this is a good of a reason as any...

    To add to this:
    Expect a 2:1 difference in I/O throughput, due to the 2687's integrated PCI root complex - this was a big architectural change between these 2 generations. This perf improvement might not happen again with the change to Haswell as they share the same PCI architecture with SB-E.

    C'mon take this wonderful crack..it's good for you, honest. I know you're trying to get off it and have been strong for two years, but remember how the crack made you feel? You'll enjoy it...just go for it...

    You guys are like fellow junkies encouraging the poor, recovering hardware addict that is myself to get back on the "sauce".... I may as well just throw in the towel and call up my "dealers" (Newegg et al) because the odds of me successfully withstanding this withering barrage of temptation that you guys have unleashed on me are slim to none.

    Why couldn't I have taken up a cheaper hobby like bird watching or bottle cap collecting?...

    bottle cap collecting is a cheep hobby...
    see how cheep they are(eBay)
    I'd rather get a E5-2687W

    I know a guy who collects bottle caps and beer mugs. Along with those miniature baseball bats and a few other odds and ends. Sounds fairly innocent and cheap, right? Well when he moved to his present place, he and his wife had so much stuff they had to built an outbuilding to house it all.

    I'm also reminded of the story about a university professor who had so much vinyl that his insurance company made him shore up his housing supports before they would insure him because they were afraid his house would collapse.

    I have an old PC76..IMHO one of the nicer cases you guys ever built.
    I have the V2 model with the 120mm rear and 120mm blowhole..4-80's in the front bottom and room to park a Volkwagen inside!

    It seems when Lian Li makes a damn good case, and seems to have all the bugs worked out....they discontinue it and produce something inferior...

    My old PC-V2100 case....the best case that I've ever owned (or likely ever will own) discontinued after a very short life...and for what....something newer (but nowhere near as good)??

    I disagree with the PC-V2100 being damn good. good yes. but not damn good.
    I own one as well for my server... and had to do some modifications so that my 12 hard drives stay cool.
    changed the single 120mm intake fan to dual 120mm fans, put 2 120mm fans between the hard drive racks, then added 2 more at the left side of the racks before the power supply. this keeps my hard drive temps at around 25-30c. they are 2TB WD green drives.
    prior to this mod they were running at 50 deg. to warm for my taste

    what I do like about the case is that it support 7 5.25 drives, which works great to add an additional 10 hard drives.
    currently have 17 hard drives in it.
    10 2TB in raid 6,
    6 1TB in raid 10
    1 500 gig for downloads so t doesn't thrash the raid drives.
    1 64 gig SSD for boot.
    all raided drives are plugged into a Highpoint RocketRAID 3560 24 channel Controller.
    so still have room for more drives
    just no convenient place to put SSD's

    thinking of going to a NORCO RPC-4224 4U Rackmount Server Case with 24 Hot-Swappable SATA/SAS Drive Bays
    anybody here use it?

    I never had a problem cooling my 12x WD 2TB WD2002FYPS drives, but then again, the computer never ran with the side panel on. I liked the fact that there's a bit of space between the drives. I swapped the original fans in the front, rear ans sides as soon as I bought it as well, so that may have helped.

    Still love that case though....you can have a small party in there....

    well originally that was my man machine, so I wanted it quiet. a bunch of fans at low speed is quieter then 1 fan at high speed.
    I ran it at the time with the side covers on to minimize noise.
    now I run it with the side covers off and its not in the same room.
    I hate fan noise.
