Nice, what do you plan to do with such a nuclear powerhouse?
In all seriousness, my father's attempting to help me get something published in a scientific journal before college. We're starting off with simulating a cell surface receptor on the atomic level using a program called NAMD. Kinda intensive, seeing as it was designed to be scalable up to supercomputers with thousands of nodes.
My father's able to borrow a few Teslas from his work, for both his projects and mine. Only, for NAMD specifically, each Tesla needs a fair bit of PCIe bandwidth to work optimally (according to my father's advisor, we're not sure if it's true but better safe than sorry), so we're looking at that specific board, because it has 72PCIe lanes through 2 PLX chips and supports 16x/8x/8x/8x/16x/8x/8x.
(Really not looking forward to buying and figuring out 7 PCIe riser cables. )
How about a 5930K on an Asus X99E WS (8-phase VRM with 60A FETs, 12K caps, and 60A Blackwing chokes)?
No seriously, I'm going to upgrade to that lol. Kinda need a ton of PCIe slots for something coming up, and the extra CPU performance doesn't hurt.
Yeah, that motherboard is excessively appealing to me. If I went that route now (which I can't really justify - sad times, I know) I'd likely be getting the 5960X and a couple more Titan Blacks. Getting enough high-end RAM in the capacity that I would want for it is another limiting hurdle. And actually, I'd also want 12GB per single GPU card ideally then too (instead of just 6GB), with the way I use them.
So yeah, not gonna happen with the current gen. of available components, unfortunately. I just hope ASUS keeps making WS boards as badass as the X99-E for my future purchasing options down the road.

There are plenty of members in the Science, Computers, and Technology subforum of the Minecraft Forums who deal with the hardware side of computers. This thread is a place to share your system's part lists, pictures of your system and setup, and anything else related to your technology! When posting information, it's recommended to include pictures in Spoiler tags, so as to reduce page length and loading times for members. If you're unsure of how to post a list of your system's components, read further down to find out about Speccy.
In order to make it easier for everyone to interpret what's going on here, it's recommend you utilize the part list tools supplied at PCPartPicker, which you can find here. Add your parts to the list, and export to BBCode utilizing the export function to the top right. If you don't wish current prices to be shown, edit them out.
Alternatively, you can use a template such as this:
Example using template:

Unsure of your system's specs? Not a total geek who has them memorized by heart? Not to fear! There is a wonderful program called Speccy, which allows you to get an idea of what components are in your system. We encourage everyone to post a picture of the output from Speccy. In order to do so, just follow these instructions:
Download and Install the Speccy program. You can find the official download page at this link. Do note that you do NOT need to purchase the Professional version. Simply download the Free Version from the FileHippo or Piriform link. The FileHippo link will take you to another site, where you can click on the download button shown to the right. The Piriform link will take you to another site, whereupon the download will start immediately. Caution: Be very careful when downloading any software, even from trusted sources. Read carefully when looking for the correct Download button.
After installing Speccy, run the program. It will take a few moments to generate all of the information.
Take a screenshot of the program.
Open an image editing program, such as MS Paint, GIMP, or Paint.net.
Paste the saved screenshot in, and save the picture.
It is highly recommended to crop out personal information that may be in the picture, such as usernames.
Upload the saved image to any image hosting website, such as Imgur.
Add the image to your Minecraft Forums post!
If done correctly, you should have the following:
LOL if we run some benchmarks, our PCs would have almost the same scores (Because For example, In most CPU and GPU benchmarks, having a bigger SSD would not matter.) Except my graphics card will score a tiny bit higher. (I'm pretty sure)
