Gaming PC Build Special | Xeon Intel Build

This PC isnt anything close to affordable, this is just about the best performance you can get right now. This PC has the best parts in the market for the most part. This was inspired by LinusTechTips’ 7 Gamers 1 CPU build about a month ago. Well what are you waiting for? Keep reading to find out more.

CPUs: Intel Xeon E5 2699 V3

This the most expensive CPU in the market with 18 cores and 36 threads. This only clocks at 2.3 GHz but has 45M cache. We are not only using 1 but 2 of these CPUs.

CPU Cooler

We used the Cooler Master Nepton 120XL cooler because the CPU does not include a stock cooler and since we need good cooling we just picked this. This was not that pricey and was compatible with the case.

Motherboard

This was the only motherboard with 7 PCI-E slots for graphics cards. The specs does say 4 way SLI but since this is the same motherboard as Linus you can use up to 7 graphics cards. This also happened to support 2 Xeons to so that worked out.

RAM

This board does support 8 slots of DDR4 RAM up to 512GB. There was no 64GB sticks so we just went with 8 of Kingston’s 32GB sticks for a total of 256GB of RAM.

Storage

We obviously need SSDs for this build so we went crazy. We used 4 of Kingston’s 960GB SSDs and 2 of Hitachi’s 8TB HDDs. This is pretty much overkill and can probably reduce to 2 SSDs and 1 HDD.

Video Card

This is where we really went crazy. We got 4 of EVGA’s GeForce GTX Titan X graphics cards. These use 250W and have 12GB of memory. We could probally use more but since the specs did say 4 way SLI we just used 4 graphics cards.

Case

We had to use something compatible and luckily we found something. This is not the only choice but we just picked it. This supports all 4 graphics cards, the radiators, and everything else.

Power Supply

I know this is a random brand but this was a little overkill anyways. With 2000W available we only need about 1694W. Nothing was available so we had to use this. This is another reason we cant use 7 Titan X’s. If you downgrade a bit then you can use the EVGA 1600W power supply too.

Optical Drive

Nothing said but just a nice add on.

OS

We did include a OS this time. We chose Windows 10 Pro because since if you have enough money to buy the other parts you can probably buy a Pro version OS.

Monitors

We used LG’s ultra wide curved monitors. Not only 1 but 8 of these for a ultimate surround gaming experience. This is obviously overkill but why not.

Conclusion

This is totally not for most people. Maybe Bill Gates or the recent Powerball Winner will buy it but other than that its not affordable. You can pretty much buy a lower end car with this enormous budget. This by the way costs $25,500 as of 2/2/16. This is also NOT ALLOWED AS THE CUSTOM PC IN THE GIVEAWAY. You may use Xeons and Titan Xs but not like this build. Well I hope you guys enjoyed this build and see you again tomorrow for a special Presidents Day Build.
