    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    Yes it has become worse in the past two and a half weeks to the point where it would not turn on and when it did it would crash up to 8 times like in the video I posted until it finally for some reason booted and was stable.  It basically shuts down and then will turn on by itself randomly after that, nothing I do seems to make it try and turn on again.  

     

    this is why I have had such a hard time.  No one has been able to help me yet solving it!  So I figured I would start over with a new system.  Hoping to not have to still but it seems like the only end result here.

    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    My systems are running well but this is the second time I hear about memtest (read about it yesterday on a freenas forum).

    I'm going to do this test tonight tonight just to see how everything is running under the hood.

    its fun to geek out and do this stuff.

    It will hit a test that will take forever. I had to let it run overnight.

    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    oh boy.  Hopefully it will not crash during the testing.  

     

    anyway thanks to all you guys for the help.  Maybe I will get lucky and it will be the memory.   I will try and reseat the cpu and unplug and replug everything in when this is done just to be sure.  

    If it just stays this way I am going to build a new one.  Have to make a decision I guess on the 7820, 8700k or wait for the new 9900.

    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    If its not the memory.  Then leave the cpu as is since youre not showing signs of overheating.

    Really I would test 2 more things.

    Install windows 10 and see if its a software issue https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

    You can download from microsoft and skip activation.  Id do a clean install, delete all partitions, and install it (backup your data).

     

    maybe pull out video card and run off integrated graphics.

     

    I don't really see a reason for using windows 7 anymore.  But I think avid prefers windows 10 build 1703 vs the current one from their download.

     

    Out of all your options I like the 9900k.  Much better power consumption, cooling/clock speed than the 8720x, and has igpu, just in case.

    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    Maybe I will put my older nvideo quadro fx 1800 back in and see if this happens.  I think it was happening with that card also though.  

     

    My problem with the 9900k is having to wait!  plus that changes the mobo since its an 1151

    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    7820x needs an x299 motherboard

    8700k needs z370

    You own these motherboards already?

    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    No...

    I thought that 9900k was an 1151 my mistake if it is not. 

     

    I will buy the mobo that goes with whatever cpu I buy just like all the other computers I have built through the years.

    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    Just to update I let the memory test run all night.  I think it crashed a couple of times but this morning it had finishded 5 passes and had zero errors running for hours so I dont think its the memory either.

     

    I think I am going to order the 7820, asus x299, 1060, and 4x8 g skill ram.  The ram price has jumped overnight unfortunately.  This ram price increase recently is a real pain.  Can anyone else recommend ram that would be good to work beside the GSKill?

    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    it doesn't usually matter.

     

    your motherboard has a list of tested modules somewhere.

    i usually buy ram that i know i can get for  many more years.

    plain kingston valueRAM for example fits this bill.

    thanks

     

    ideally 8x8gb would be the way to go its just so expensive.

    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    there's no speed advantage after 4 sticks.

    16GB sticks smell more of the future,

    now a cheap cpu 6-8 core, 32 GB ram. another 32GB next year.

    14-18 core cpu used in 4 years, 128GB ram an 5 years if you get really bored.

    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    I'd never get 8gb chips.

    You can find deals on slickdeals

    just type in ddr4 16gb

    I would have tried more things on your computer.

    Just this morning I re-built my old z97 w/ win10 and media composer for an assistant.

    You're probably going to have to install windows 10 on your x299 might aswell atempt it on your current machine, you can skip the activation.
