nice build, i run an e5 1650 all day, nothing will slow this beast down. better choice for a workstation by far.

Is that GPU sagging? Or is it my eyes fooling me?

I actually like how you used a Xeon E5 in there, not many people use E5s in a custom pc. WATER COOLED!? Wow, that must get hot with air cooling.

Water cooling was necessary. E5 was overclocked by 20%.

I thought xeons could not be overclocked; that the multiplier was locked. can you tell us more about this? thanks.

Asus X99-A has OC built in. I did nothing but use the stock software included to achieve these results. Don't try it unless you have an OC capable board and cooling.

Can I ask: Do you game on this thing at all? What is the experience like with the E5-1650?

Customer requested build. Yes I know it's cheaper but this is more of a workstation.

Reliability and compatibility. Probably.
