Description

Wanted to start building my own deep learning machine for IOT projects. Been using it for the last 6 months. Took me a two days to put these together and have my first convnet up and running. The user manuals and youtube were great help to build the server from scratch. The Corsair liquid cooler has been holding up pretty well for large load operations. Apart from the setup i have WD 4TB drive to other project or large data files. Active Applications and Active projects are stored on SSD.

What worked. 1. The liquid cooler 2. Fully Modular ATX: Though 1200W seems extensive, the setup requires 750W, but wanted to have more power in case of an additional GPU. The flexibility the fully modular PSU provide is exceptional. What can be improved. 1. MSI Motherboard: Overall the motherboard was good, but it kept generating different error codes although the components were working. Spoke with the Technician and they confirmed it was OK and the error codes would "settle in" after having it run for a couple of days. 2. Definitely look for deals while purchasing.

One thing i would change would be to add another GPU to speed things a bit. Based on the amount of time i spend on this server, TCO is wayyyyyyyyy cheaper than Amazon or Floyd Hub type subscriptions.

yo dawg i got a few questions:

Does the MSI dragon glow stock or was that a mod

and how are you enjoying the 6850K. Right now im debating between that and the 6900K so i was wondering what your opinion on the matter is.

MSI Dragon glow was stock.

6900K v 6850K kinda depends on 2 things Cost and What you want to do with it. 6900K is i guess twice the price of 6850K 6850K does a good job on gaming,(esp if you OC) and doesnt over heat and cause lag. i have seen builds with 7700K w 4 core having no issues gaming.

If money aint a problem go for 6900K. (and id say search the shite out for coupons and you'd save enough money to get another GPU :)

Why does it need 750 Watts? 140W CPU + 250W GPU. And MSI suggests to use 600W power supply for this video card.
