Jonathan Stark says:

Lets say, hypothetically, I had a lot of money. Could I use this for something as simple as storing tons of movies and series on and use it to watch those movies around the house?

Twins plus Two says:

Would this server good for Vray node 3D rendering?

Vincent Lee says:

how does 1 graphics card get 2 power plugs? 4:20

petsoukos says:

I was configuring, just for funsies, a R730 but when I selected RAID 5 I couldn’t select Linux.

Papergami45 says:

So if I bought this, filled it with hard drives and RAM and put a couple of decent GPUs in there (maybe a FirePro V5900 or two) in there it’d be a super efficient but very loud extremely powerful rendering device. This may sound stupid (I’m new to this kind of stuff) but if I did that I guess I could install an OS on it and use it as a backup computer and storage device? Also, are there any other alternatives that are a bit cheaper that I could use for something similar to what I have in mind?
My main aim is a high capacity rendering machine for a decent price. If anyone has any cheaper specifications, I would love to see them.

Now if only we had some cheap WD RED 2.5 4-6TB drives to go in the front bays

TheScreamerBoy says:

Every time i think of that server computer i’m thinking about the future of gaming… I’ve been calculating how much RAM you can have on this beast… I’m still surprise of the number… 192 GB of RAM seriously… if someone would like to have a gaming pc with this. This guy is actually 1)Freaking rich 2) A Real,Real,Real,REAL PC gamer 3)Maybe crazy…

KronicNitron says:

GreatElectronics says:

Very good video. Would have like more videos about servers and server components. It would be nice to have a more in depth video on redundant PSU’s and the pros and cons of them.

Elites Engineering says:

You can put a boot SSD (although a USB would be a cheaper alternative) instead of a CD/DVD-ROM. There are “fake” DVD-roms for sale on Ebay which you can take apart and you can put your SSD in there! :D. Its pretty cool.

LiPoBattery says:
