I can start this properly now.
A good case should be 10% of a casemod.
Here ya go :
-----
Caselabs magnum sth-10 (custom white)
Supermicro X11DPi-NT
2x Intel Xeon Gold 6144 processors
96 Gb Crucial ECC DDR4 2666
Corsair AX1500i
2x ASUS Blu-ray (m-disk) burners
2x raid backplanes

There's a 1070 in there till the volta's get here.

Oh I know bud !
They would already be on order, but it's ski season !!
----

I took a bunch of other pics, but I'm gonna wait till I borrow a macro lens for my good camera, and re-take em....Next week or so probably.

------

Just a note about the title. ( :rofl: )
My calculations said I could get this rig running for 16,000$.....I'm really close , I need a 1TB m.2 960 pro , and I'll be able to install the OS....that'll put me about 16,300$.

What I had not really given any thought to , was populating all the cool slots.
I need 2 video cards(you know the ones)(( to start))...I will have 2 empty m.2 slots in addition to the onboard ...I have at least 8 empty drive bays.

sh1t.

I can actually put 40,000$ worth of ram into this rig.(not that I'm gonna.)
haha !!

----------

Obviously , this is gonna be a work in progress for the next 6 months or so.


More pics asap.

Might not be $40K, but I'm sure "96 Gb Crucial ECC DDR4 2666" didn't come all that cheaply.....

Yea that's the ram I was talking about.
12 sticks= 48000$
--------
To answer your question , my ram cost 1836$ CAN, direct from Crucial.
I'm actually running the minimum amount I can .
This motherboard does 'rank interleaved' 6 channel/cpu.It can only run certain bitwidth/rank modules to work properly though.I was lucky to get these, these modules are the ones everybody wants for servers.
----

I'm hoping to start loading an OS this weekend as well as good pics.

I am looking forward to benchmarks too, but mostly my own video benches.....I'm running a couple diff video renders on this machine (3930k) to compare to the new rig.I know it's gonna smash the eff outta it , that's all I really care about;faster render times.

Edit : I said this to my buddy Rob , who's been my supplier for most of this :
This is the first time EVER my bios date matched the year I bought it.

Haha
