Heya Richard,

I'm going to keep a close eye on this topic as I too have been building 
a compute cluster which I call WOPR, it is however only four IBM x5 3950 
in a two-node pair set-up linked via QPI-WRAP cards and cables but each 
of the nodes contains four XEON E7-8870 Deca-cores so that 160 cores 
while my DELL R810 also contains four XEON E7-4870 Deca-cores along with 
my seven DELL CS24--NV7 which contain dual, quad-core AMD 2373EE, this 
is all linked via SUN 80GBPS Infiniband to my Mellanox switch which then 
ties directly to my LAN, I've also some DAS too.

I'm not finished yet so have not equated for GPUs but would be very 
interested in an FPGA route for further compute. I'm also expanding the 
IBM x5 3950 range an identical pair at a time every few months, so 
things do or have been changing and this is why I'd like to see the 
topic you've created grow a little :D

All very interesting stuff!
