And Sound Card? What kind of power supply do I require? Is it essential to shop for an Extended ATX Case? The Processor comes with no heatsink, got any ideas what to shop for? Really need some advice before placing my order.

My main concerns at this point are: 1. finding a 4U rackmount chassis for this big board-- lightweight aluminum preferred. 2. Finding a good PSU to support the dual CPUs, memory, and multiple CUDA GPUs 3. Finding a liquid cooling system. I have never used liquid cooling to this point. Please share your findings with me! suchimi5410 April 2, 2010 10:46:57 PM Have this company build your workstation computer and they have a dual xeon with water cooling: www.titanuscomputers.com Can't find your answer ?
