I bet those quadro cards would make a very effective cryptocurrency mining setup.

They would have several years ago. Today, they (as with all other GPUs) are hilariously weaksauce as compared to even the cheapest ASIC-based mining systems; think several orders of magnitude: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison

To say nothing of "real" systems like this:

Sad to see a Seasonic PSU and Quadro in the same case.

Got a new PC at work, finally. We recently decommissioned one of our realtime 3D previsualization suites, so I stole one of the workstations out of it for myself. Six core i7-3960X overclocked to 4.1 Ghz (it came this way, I'll probably turn it down to stock), 16GB, Nvidia Quadro 4000 video card, a bunch of storage, blah blah blah. It's kind of fast-ish.







(Six PCI-E x16 slots is probably enough.)








Much better for running AutoCAD 2014 inside a virtual Win7-64 machine while also running WireCAD, 30 Chrome tabs and MAP Designer in the main OS. The machine ain't even breathing heavy, whereas my old laptop would be absolutely dying under this load.

It's honestly kind of hilarious how quickly this thing boots up. I'm happy.

Most of the Seasonic power supplies failed. They are crap.

WHAT!?

The Seasonic X-series PSU in that PC is probably the best ATX PSU on the market, on par with the Corsair AX series.

Maybe you guys got some shitty ones

As much as I'd love to hook a brotha up, we paid about $9k each for these machines less than two years ago, and they all have asset tags on them:

Others have pretty well addressed this already. Suffice it to say that even manufacturers with an otherwise stellar track record occasionally produce a lemon. We have several dozen of these machines in house, and our failure rate on them has thus far been zero. Given that Boxx still uses them, and that their machines are on the "extremely power-hungry" side of normal, I'm guessing that their experience has been similar.

It's a video of a turbocharger wherein the turbine section has been replaced with a hamster running in a wheel.
