    Why is every comment a meme? Do people just speak in memes now?

      Me: Has a pc. Thinks it's the best.
      Linus: Drops 40k on a pc for shits and giggles.
      Me: still running an AMD fx 8300 cpu.

        Thanks! Why Asus 2 CPU motherboard? Why not something like Dell R940... With 4 CPU and 13 PCI express 3.0 slots? (3 x8 + 10 x16)

                          I really love this stuff, but guys, really really bad design. If anything goes wrong with that motherboard you've knocked out all your workers until you get a replacement and I bet you don't have maintenance on that thing.

                          Better solution would have been to divide all that hardware into 4 separate nodes in a cluster (for 100k, you may be able to get nvidia's RTX blades with maintenance) that way if one goes down, you've only knocked out 2 of your workers. I think you can even virtualize GPU's now (Maybe a video idea) so you could just move the VM's to other nodes in the cluster and just have minor degraded performance until you get a replacement. You can't scale this either to add more users.

                          But in saying that, this is what gets the clicks, and if you don't get the clicks, there is no video editing to do, and you wouldn't be able to make than pretty awesome rig which isn't a production rig anyway. Have you tried VMWare's ESXi as the hypervisor? Would be cool to see hyper-v vs KVM vs ESXi on that thing.

One of the things I never could convince my corporation was that buying one machine to cover all people (i.e. printers etc) means when it goes down all people go down. My corporation would buy a $1000 laser printer to cover 6 people when it could have bought 6 ea $100 dollar lasers to do the same job. The $1000 laser's workload would wear it out fast and it was down a lot, plus we all had to get up and walk over the where the printer was to get our work, many times standing in line. If all had individual printers we would not have had to get up so much and the duty cycle of the printer would have been reasonable, plus you could replace each printer individually if one was giving trouble. Plus, with printer sharing, if one went down that person could use some elses till he got theirs fixed or replaced.
