Has anyone tried this system?
Would it be good for running Prime95?

for $5,000 you could have a small fleet of 2.8 or 3.2 boxen and out perform that 3.8.
If you ran a caseless stripped down set of systems, you could easily have 12 machines for that price running at around 2.8. 2.8 x 12 = 33.6GHz for the price 3.8Ghz.
