Hello friends
I'm riding four servers to use watchout .
would like to know the evaluation of you on this equipment , would change anything?
Thank you very much.

 

Processor: Intel® Core ™ i7-5960X 8 núcleos de Processador Extreme Edition (20M Cache, comeu 3,50 GHz).

Memory : Kingston HyperX Predator - Kit 16GB * (4x4GB) - DDR4 2133MHz CL13 Intel XMP DIMM.

SSD: Kingston HyperX 3K SSD - 120GB SH103S3 / 120G.

Mother Board: Asus X99 Pro.

Videocard: AMD FirePro ™ W9100.

Cooling: Cooler Master - Seidon 120M - LGA 2011 - RL-S12M-24PK-R1.

Energy Source: EVGA SuperNOVA 1600 G2 Power Supply.

With a 8-core processor and an AMD FirePro W9100 chosen, I would opt to change this below:

SSD: Kingston HyperX 3K SSD - 120GB SH103S3 / 120G.

 I would use 1 SSD for OS and 2 SSD's in RAID 0 for MEDIA/WATCHOUT.

   Samsung 840/850 PRO is a good choice.

 

Mother Board: Asus X99 Pro.

- I would use an ASUS X99-E WS.

I completely agree, with one note when working in the high end of hardware.

When implementing the SSD RAID,

consider a hardware PCIe controller, preferably one operating at x4 or x8.

Compared to the motherboard controllers,

you may see a performance bump from a hardware RAID controller.

An alternate option to the RAID may be SSDs integrated with a controller on a PCIe expansion card,

that again may show throughput improvements over SATA3 RAIDs.

Jonas and JFK
the principle was riding the above configuration, due to the budget had to make some changes.
could let me know if I will have a good performance with the following items?
this graphics card AMD HD 6990, which the evaluation of this hardware?

Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-5820K Processor (15M Cache, up to 3.60 GHz).
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR4 DRAM 2133MHz C13 memory kit for DDR4.
SSD: Samsung SSD 850 PRO 512 GB.
Mother Board: WS X99-E.
VideoCard: AMD RADEON ™ HD 6990 GPU.
Cooling: Cooler Master - Seidon 120M - LGA 2011 - RL-S12M-24PK-R1.
Energy Source: EVGA SuperNOVA 1600 G2 Power Supply.

 

I would like to have your opinions.

Thank you so much.

Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-5820K Processor (15M Cache, up to 3.60 GHz).

Ok, 6-cores.

Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR4 DRAM 2133MHz C13 memory kit for DDR4.

32 GB is unnecessary, 16 GB is quite enough. And cheaper.

 

SSD: Samsung SSD 850 PRO 512 GB.

Ok.

Mother Board: WS X99-E.
I would go back to the earlier MB, ASUS X99 Pro. Also cheaper.

 

 

VideoCard: AMD RADEON ™ HD 6990 GPU.

I would opt for a cheaper card, like a NVidia GTX980, with 3 DP and 1 HDMI/1 DVI, for 4 outputs.

 

Cooling: Cooler Master - Seidon 120M - LGA 2011 - RL-S12M-24PK-R1.

Ok, watercooling is a good choice.

 

Energy Source: EVGA SuperNOVA 1600 G2 Power Supply.

1600W of PSU is a bit much, I think. 1000W is probably enough. And cheaper.
