The ULTRABEAST! 2 x 980Ti's / 2 x E5-2697v2 CPUs / Geekbench 59,104

18 June 2017 - 03:18 AM

Hi Everyone, it's been a few years since The HACKINBEAST. The ULTRABEAST was a 2+ year project that was finally finished about 3 months ago. Unfortunately for whatever reason has now stopped working. The initial install when we used (El Capitan) work fine. The problem though was that it would freeze every 2 to 3 hours. After several months of going back and forth figuring out what the issue was, it came down to a possible memory leak in the GPU's. So what we did was waited for an Nvidia update and we finally got one and when we installed it and updated to Sierra, the screen went black and stop working altogether. Now the person that help me program this no longer wants to help me and I'm stuck pretty much by myself with this $8500 system (you can build it yourself for around $2,500 to $3,000). As you can probably tell by the photos, quite a bit of time went into this build. This was the first PETG tubing build I ever did. I'm wondering if maybe it's the GPU's that need to be updated to the 1080 TI's? I don't even know if the 1080 TI's can work together and in SLI mode. I haven't seen anything online about it, but it would be something really great as I would like to be able to see if I can get a system like that built with a dual CPU setup. Unlike what I have going on right now. Here's a system set up:


SuperMicro X9DAi-O Motherboard

128GB (16 x 8GB) DDR3-1333 MHz PC3-10600R ECC 

2 x E5-2697 v2 Intel CPUs (Water Blocked)

2 x 980 Ti GPUs (Water Blocked)

EVGA 1600 P2 PSU


Please let me know if any of you have any thoughts about any of what I just shared. Hope you like the Geekbench as well as the Cinebench Scores. Now all I care about right now is that the machine works. I didn't take professional pics this time; I've been very busy. Hope you like them. :)
