Ubuntu 16.04 LTS NVIDIA Setup Guide
Ok here is my setup guide, I could be completely wrong on a few things so please update me, this will get turned into a wiki but I want discussion first:

1) Install Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
2) dpkg --remove-architecture i386
3) ldconfig && sync && reboot
4) apt-get install build-essential xserver-xorg p7zip xorg-dev libgtk-3-dev
5) download latest nvidia drivers
7) [blacklist nouveau]

as root

echo 'blacklist nouveau' > /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf
echo 'blacklist lbm-nouveau' >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf
echo 'options nouveau modeset=0' >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf
echo 'alias nouveau off' >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf
echo 'alias lbm-nouveau off' >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf
echo options nouveau modeset=0 | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/nouveau-kms.conf
update-initramfs -u

8) [stop x as root] /etc/init.d/xdm stop
9) install nvidia drivers
10) sudo nvidia-xconfig -s -a --force-generate --allow-empty-initial-configuration --cool-bits=12 --registry-dwords="PerfLevelSrc=0x2222" --no-sli --connected-monitor="DFP-0"

11) ldconfig && sync && reboot
12) as root make a fan.sh script, edit to taste and make executable

export DISPLAY=:0
xhost +
nvidia-settings -a [gpu:0]/GPUFanControlState=1 -a [fan-0]/GPUTargetFanSpeed=100
nvidia-settings -a [gpu:1]/GPUFanControlState=1 -a [fan-1]/GPUTargetFanSpeed=100
nvidia-settings -a [gpu:2]/GPUFanControlState=1 -a [fan-2]/GPUTargetFanSpeed=100
nvidia-settings -a [gpu:3]/GPUFanControlState=1 -a [fan-3]/GPUTargetFanSpeed=100
#nvidia-settings -a [gpu:4]/GPUFanControlState=1 -a [fan-4]/GPUTargetFanSpeed=100
#nvidia-settings -a [gpu:5]/GPUFanControlState=1 -a [fan-5]/GPUTargetFanSpeed=100
#nvidia-settings -a [gpu:6]/GPUFanControlState=1 -a [fan-6]/GPUTargetFanSpeed=100
#nvidia-settings -a [gpu:7]/GPUFanControlState=1 -a [fan-7]/GPUTargetFanSpeed=100

13) run fan.sh  and tweak system until it runs clean, may need to reexecute the nvidia setup

14) setup ufw to firewall allow only to trusted systems as x is a security hole

15) download hashcat or build

16) install systems management software, puppet etc
