Machine learning???

I build myself a PC for Machine learning, deep learning and Kaggle at home: i7-8700k, 64 GB RAM, 1 1080ti. It covers almost all my ml solution needs. Though it would be better to have 2 or 4 videocards, but the heat would be too much, is there any way i can add up those vcs?

wouldn't it be cheaper to just use AWS for that? 4 NVIDIA GPUs is going to kill your wallet, not to mention the added electricity bill.

I don't know anything about Machine Learning computers but if you're using more than 1 gpu, you should seriously consider liquid cooling.

Liquid cooling for GPUs is only needed for overclocking.

If you are intent to using multiple GPUs in one system, no overclock, all you need is proper ventilation.

Unless you're doing something dedicated on site, I'd also go AWS.
For a couple bucks an hour you can get a frankly ridiculous system.

But I have no idea what OP is doing with their machine. Maybe they do need it running 24/7.

Does it need to look fancy?
Built it similar to an open air mining rig and use risers to extend the GPUs off the motherboard.

Similar to my setup.
