I ended up doing this on a 9-blade unit with Asus RAMPAGE IV Gene boards.

Would anyone be interested in a how-to?

e: We use it as a render farm machine in a VFX facility, so each and every blade is at ~99%-100% CPU load for up to 100+ hour stretches at a time.

I'm very interested in seeing a how to. I need to build a small render box/farm for distributed renders using maya mental ray/vray/arnold. I'd like to know what the best setup would be.
