I'm not really sure what to say... Overkill, perhaps?
And the price... Ouch. :L

One thing to say for this, and I've found it with my dual Opteron system too, is that in five years everyone else will have upgraded two or three times and you will still be able to keep up. While not perhaps future proofing, boards like this have a significant lifespan due to their expandability.

Sure, it's a fancy board, but I still think for overclocking I'd grab a single CPU system and for the day in-day out, 24/7 grind it's no better than other offerings as overclocking such a 24/7-calculator would never cross my mind.

Still, love to see manufacturers try something new.

Hmm, one of those kits plus all the necessary ancillary kit to support it or an upgraded Mac Pro...

...that's actually a tough decision.

Not sure why the hate on the NCCH-DL. Personally have had much better results with it than the PC-DL. (Dual 1.6GHz LV Xeons @ 3.3GHz stable)

How come the picture of BT's sample has the exact same configuration as Scan's? Same CPUs, same coolers, same fans, same overclock...

Anyway, great to see EVGA push the boundaries but I don't think anybody using it for non-business stuff really needs anything like this.

I presume you're referring to the image on page 15? If so, that's a photo of the Scan pre-overclocked bundle.

Yep - it needed two power supplies and heated the lab to such an extent that everybody bar me ran away for a few hours

Ah, ok, I can explain:

The first picture is of the Scan bundle.

The second picture does use the same CPU coolers as the Scan bundle (they did supply us the kit after all) but if you look closely this picture also shows our G.Skill RAM installed instead of the Corsair RAM that Scan supplied with its bundle.

Just wondering why Scan are showing the 3XS SLIK SR-2 H20 Xeon Bundle as "In Stock" but are still currently showing the EVGA Classified Super Record 2 (SR-2) as "Pre Order Item Item currently awaiting an ETA." ??
