Design Rationale

  • The Xeon w9-3​4​95X gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for lightly-threaded loads, and multicore performance for heavily-threaded tasks.
  • To ensure the CPU runs at full speed, liquid cooling with a 360mm liquid cooler is recommended.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with room for 16 RAM slots, 1 add-in NVME expander, 1 dual-slot GPU, and a high-end NVME RAID controller. Onboard 10G networking was a plus.
  • The customer requested 16x64GB DDR5-4800 ECC. This allows the user to load very large scans into RAM, and go up to 4TB RAM.
  • The customer wanted a dual-layer storage setup; 4TB NVME RAID0 for OS/programs and 7x8TB NVME RAID0 for main storage.
  • The customer requested a single RTX 6000 ADA 48GB video card.
  • The customer requested a 1600W power supply.
  • We used our bigger full-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our highest-end fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.
