Just think some people pay 8K for a NORMAL build. 1 processor and 2-3 graphics card (think an i7 975, tri-sli 285's or Quad SLI 295's) and lots of nice lights and such. How did you get it for so cheap?

Wow really nice, one question I don't know anything about sever boards and even less about AMD boards so what is the black slots that look like PCI slots between the CPU sockets?

@Sushi: I know a guy that knows a guy, you could say, hehe.

@TopDogZero: Very perceptive! Those are actually (physically) PCI-express slots, but theyre not used for that purpose. Tyan actually just uses that slot type as its Hypertransport connectors. And that means, if I wanted to, I could create an 8-socket system by adding hypertransport risers and a 4-socket daughter board to Behemoth.... But not yet... someday though Wanna donate? lol.

In y'all missed my meaning: Behemoth could someday become an 8-socket server, and yes, all sockets would support Istanbul Opterons. Theoretically, Behemoth has the potential to be a 48-core monster someday.
