Hello!)
I wonder if there are any owners of HP Z420, Intel® Xeon E5-1650, 8GB here?(http://www.amazon.com/HP-Workstation-Z420-Xeon-E5-1650/dp/B007TMY6OS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1355151090&sr=8-1&keywords=HP+Z420%2C+Intel%C2%AE+Xeon+E5-1650%2C))) I am seriously considering this workstation for a large number crunching project that would involved recalculating large excel files (300-mbs, and 500mbs in size) thousands of times per each day (5/7/365)...this will be a long term project so I need a super fast and a super reliable system...I understand Xeon E5-1650 is the twin brother of i7 3930k with the addition of ECC memory support and a few more sever options...I was wondering if there are people here who have this machine and hwo submit it daily to very hard loads???well - EXTREMELY HARD LOADS....Like running 100% for 10 hours non-stop....I wonder how it handles that?)) I will be very happy to hear about your experience!)

it is interesting to note that Lenovo ThinkStation S30 0569 features the same porcessor but is almost 1000$ more expensive at a hefty $2,924.00 (http://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-056961U-ThinkStation-S30-0569/dp/B009CZUV12/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1355326313&sr=8-2&keywords=Lenovo+ThinkStation+S30+0569)...I wonder why such a large price differential?)
thanks)
