Where could I go to be shown how to build, configure, and test these systems? Or are they pretty much the same as consumer systems -- I've built 3 single processor systems for home use. Would these be the same, except one installs more CPUs, heat sinks, and memory. Or does it take specialized knowledge?
I realize this is going to sound stupid, but what motherboard, exactly,
can physically take 32 Gb of memory? What type of memory and where do
you get it at a reasonable price? It must cost a fortune for that much.
My wife has some applications that need memory beyond 4 Gb so I'm
interested in what you have to say.
AFAIK, with ten memory slots the Tyan quad-Opteron board (http://www.tyan.com/products/html/thunderk8qspro.html) is the current king of the hill. You'd need 4G memory parts ($$$!!!) to get to 32G on this or any of the many boards with eight memory slots.
But that's all theoretical because when maxed out this mobo is a true yacht. You know...if you have to ask how much it costs, you can't afford it.
