Test System Setup




We would like to thank TYAN, NZXT, SanDisk, Noctua, and Kingston for their support in providing parts for our test system.


The test setup is typical for a server setup. The CPUs used in these tests are two Intel Xeon E5-2697 V2 CPUs.




This is the CPUz screen showing the various stats of the Xeon E5-2697 V2 CPUs. As you can see, this CPU has a max TDP of 130 watts. We will be using two CPUs, so that means a total of 24 cores and 48 threads.


The memory installed is 64GB of Kingston KVR16R11S4/8HA, CL11 1600MHz ValueRAM Server Premier Line. The memory modules are manufactured using a locked bill of materials (BOM), which is important to customers who use or build white box systems and require the brand and revision of the DRAM to always be the same.


Kingston can fully control the BOM (down to the chip die revision), and this is critical in server systems requiring maximum stability and uptime


For all tests that we ran, we used optimized BIOS settings for performance.
