4x GTX 1080 build - is it enough?

Postby gpuworkstation » Wed Jan 18, 2017 11:51 pm

I'm putting together a GPU workstation for a company i'm with and need it to solidly keep up with the tech curve for at least 3-5 years. Also this is my first time with Octane, so it would be good to know if this build will work well with OctaneRender. Here are the specs:

Motherboard: ASUS X99-E WS/USB 3.1, Intel X99 Chipset, LGA 2011-3, DDR4 128GB, M.2, USB 3.1, E-ATX
Processor: INTEL Core i7-6900K Eight-Core 3.2 - 3.7GHz TB, LGA 2011-3, 20MB L3 Cache, DDR4, 14nm, 140W
Graphics Card: 4 x EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 GAMING, 1607 - 1733MHz, 8GB GDDR5X 256-Bit, PCI Express 3.0
Memory: CRUCIAL 32GB kit (4 x 8GB) DDR4 2133MHz, PC4-17000, CL15 1.2V, Non-ECC, DIMM
Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA Series 1200 P2 1200W, 80 PLUS Platinum ECO Mode, Full Modular, ATX
CPU Cooler: NOCTUA NH-U12S, Socket 2011-3/1151/AM3+/FM2+, 158mm Height, 140W TDP, Copper/Aluminum
Cooling Fan: 3 x CORSAIR Air Series AF120 Quiet Edition 120mm, 1100 RPM, 39.88 CFM, 21 dBA
SSD: SAMSUNG 1TB 850 Pro 7mm, 550 / 520 MB/s, 3D V-NAND, SATA 6Gb/s, 2.5-Inch

What does everyone think? Sorry if this post is in the wrong forum - I didn't see a space for general questions by prospective buyers. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Depending on many jobs and how complex the scene is.
Still best to have access to cloud render farms for safety purposes.
You can check out ORC cloud, Ultra render or Garagefarm whereby they all provide GPU render services
