These aren't your typical gaming computers - no overclocked GPUs, no overclocked CPUs, no custom power supplies, nothing pushing the edge. These are HP CAD workstations - they are built by the factory to do this type of work day in and day out, without fail. I have 6 of these units for sale.

I purchased these machines to do some number crunching for a non-profit, and that project is over. The are not abused, just used. They were actually running full tilt with lesser GPUs up through February, 2022, then they got more memory and the current GTX 1080s, and after all the hardare updates, the project was cancelled. All the CPUs have had their heatsinks reseated, and the GPUs were all stress tested and benchmarked in the machine after they were installed (Heaven for a 5 minute warmup, then 3DMark, then PCMark - HWInfo used to monitor heat levels - all normal).

The Specs:

HP z620 chassis, motherboards and power supplies
Dual Xeon E5-2690v1 2.9GHz CPUs (4 machines)
Dual Xeon E5-2650v2 2.6GHz CPUs (2 machines)
128GB 8500 PC3 RAM
256GB SSD with Windows 10 Pro installed
nVidia GTX 1080 Founders Edition GPU
Nothing from the factory has been removed - RAM was added as needed, GPUs were upgraded.

I ran the Heaven, 3DMark, and PCMark benchmarks on both machine setups and the result photos are shown.
2650 = 4,259 (Heaven), 6,977 (3DMark), 3,481 (PCMark)
2690 = 4,505 (Heaven), 6,928 (3DMark), 3,595 (PCMark)

The hardware scores (based on PassMark.com):

Xeon E5-2650v2 = 9,994 (x2)
Xeon E5-2690v1 = 9,813 (x2)
GTX 1080 = 15,350

This yields an overall system score of approximately 35,150 (2 CPUs, 1 GPU)

For comparison, a stock Dell XPS 8930 with a single i9-9900K 3.6GHz and a GTX 1050 gets a score of 24,670, and is priced around $1,500. Dual CPU machines start in the $2,500 - $3,000 range.

I've got over $1,000 into each computer as is. If I had another project to put these to use for, I'd keep them.

Photos are stock, but fully representative of the units I have for sale.
