the CeBIT show we had a chance to take a look at Cooler Master's interesting system consisting of five mini-ITX motherboards with Intel's quad core CPUs running under full load with one CoolerMaster 1000W PSU. All of these CPUs adds to a total of 20 cores running at 53.2GHz.
Just to make things fair, the system also has five hard drives and five DVD drives, and even if we are looking at mini-ITX motherboards with integrated graphics we must admit that it does look impressive. The entire setup was connected to five LCDs showing that it was running at full load all the time.
The system looks impressive and CoolerMaster's 1000W PSU certainly has enough juice for it. We weren't able to check out the full consumption but the system was looking stable, at least for the time being.
Here are some pictures.
