InformaticsRig

Build Description

This build is what I use to do bioinformatics analyses. I needed something with multiple cores and the potential to use CUDA gpu-based pipelines. My previous job at a University gave me easy access to high performance clusters, but my current job outsources to cloud-based computing like Amazon. This rig allows me to do some limited personal investigations that may lead to something I would propose at my actual job. I'd rather not have to pay out of pocket for computing expenses, so this build fills in a needed niche for me.

Favorite Feature

I like that it's compact (mATX case), but still has plenty of computational power. I also like that I can manually increase the fans to keep things cool if I have to perform multi-thread operations that ramp up the heat.
