Do you have a thread on it? Or a summery post? Images maybe even?

That was not really what I meant. I would like to keep this topic as clean as possible. Could you provide just a link to your build?

Got it. :)

Thanks for including my thread. Maybe I'll make a more official thread to show it off once I get everything set up the way I want. Just waiting on some drive rails to add four more hard drives. And for memtest86 to finish without errors.

I just posted my build https://forum.teksyndicate.com/t/dual-e5-2680-build/105089

Added, thanks. Although 2680s but close enough. ;)

@anon5205053, can you post your build in a thread of it's own? It looks like an interesting build but I can't link it like this.

I have two builds with this processor. I will post in the next week listing the parts and my findings to maybe help someone out.
