I will write the code for the GPU cards even though I have never done it before...
The normal system stuff was referring to the system and software, i.e. basically read only stuff. Your solution sounds good to me.
For the chassis, I found these.
Supermicro | Products | SuperWorkstation | Mid-Tower | 7038A-i with Part List
Supermicro | Products | SuperWorkstation | 4U | 7048A-T
In one of their manuals, I found this diagram:
Would it make sense to have the following?
* 1 x 400Gb 750 on slot 6 for system and software
* 1 x 400Gb 750 on SLOT1 or SLOT3 for scratch of CPU1
* 1 x 400Gb 750 on SLOT5 or SLOT2 for scratch of CPU2
Would it be possible to enforce the CPU uses a specific SLOT?
If I decide to add some GPUs later on, would it be possible to do so, for instance on SLOT1 and SLOT5?
Thank you for your help,
