    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    I have been trying for over a year...replaced the psu, cpu, mobo...Its still happening.  I have run check disk, clean installs, memtest...etc..

     

    I am stumped and have not found anyone to help me without paying which i do not want to do.  It just loses power and restarts.  The error codes just point to a power issue which everywhere I have looked have no solutions to.   

    Its pretty crazy.  

     

    Yes I am going to install windows 10. I didnt do the upgrade when it was free last year or two years ago because I was told not to because of avid.  I really cant imagine its an operating system issue.

    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    So I ordered the PSU, GPU, SSD, CPU Cooler so far.

    I cant decide on a MOBO.  The MSI X299 SLI Plus seems to be a good fit for cheaper than the asus rog strixx 299 gaming board.  I was talking to a guy at frys and usually I feel like the people there know there stuff but not today so I was hesitant.

     

    I am going to buy the 7820x and then Ram to go with the MOBO when I decide.

     

    anyone have any thoughts on the MSI board?

    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    Just my two cents -  What you have looks good -   here is what I would look into

    1. Check gigabyte MB with thunderbolt  - just think of future
    2. PSU problay is enough but think about at least an 850 (I got 1000 - maybe overkill?) did calucaltions and thought about future .  You shoud calculate and see if 750 is enough
    3. Consider if your MB has enough slots - for future - maybe a raid card? Masybe BM card.
    4. i9 I think has 44 lanes - I know it is expensive
    5. Make sure you have enough USB 3 and 3.1 - been using it and it is great
    6. I would go for a minium of 32 gigs - I guess you can upgrade when prices drop (question is when?)
    7. Does your case have enough room for additional drives?
    8. Is your case easy to work in?  A tight case is a pain.
    I have built several edit machnes - at timesI went the inexpensive route when I should not have.  But we all have budgets.

    good luck

    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    yes the PSU should be fine.

    Yes there are enough PCI E slots.

     

    i9 does have 44 and this i7 has 28 lanes

    Plenty of usb 3.0 and 3.1  

     

    G Skill ripjaw v 2x16 ram right now..if and when it drops I will get two more.

    Plenty of room in the case for more drives.  I am only going to put two more sata drives in the case and then rest of storage will be external in a 4 bay mediasonic case.

    Phanteks Enthoo Pro is a full tower case and should be plenty of space.  I actually am not putting much in there so lot of room!

    Yea budget is an issue right now for me and a catch 22.  We lost our sponsors and most of the funding for the show I have worked on for you 9 years so i only have a little work but the catch 22 is without a stable functioning setup I cant do any! 

    When and if work picks back up or I can find some new gigs I can always upgrade the CPU and sell this one add ram.

     

    I think I am going to put a cooler master 240 radiatior in also.

    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    I am using the X299 A prime and the 7820x - no issues

    If using an air cooler, get the biggest that will fit in the case!

    Thanks,

    I think I am going to grab the cooler master 240 if it is in at frys when I go there in a minute.

    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    So I ended up with the msi board, 7820x, g.skill ripjaws 32 gb ram...going to grab another 32 soon, samsung pro 960 512 gb, 4tb toshiba drive, evga 1060, phantek enthoo pro case, corsair h110i cooler and windows pro 10 64 bit.

     

    Ive been up and running for a few days with no issues.  Ive had no problem editing HD or 4k clips so far.  Avid, after effects, photoshop and mpeg streamclip...the tools I use the most have all been smooth.  Installed my aja kona 3g card and that is also issue free....hopefully i wont jinx it by saying that.

     

    Thanks for all the help in this thread.  I have noticed quicker render times and incredible differnece in boot time and shut down time.  I havent really noticed overall a huge performance boost however when encoding or importing  but that is ok what I needed was a setup that would work when I turn it on everyday and so far it has.  

     

    Now to find some work, the real hard part.

    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    I was also dissapointed in the inport / export times on my new 7820 setup but I think the bottleneck is Quicktime which appears to use only 1 core.  MFX was much quicker. 

    One thing that did make a big difference to QT  export was overclocking.

    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    “Importing” is obsolete.

    link then transcode, this method will use all your cores. I always have my task manager pinned to task bar so I can see my cpu usage with a click of a button.  This will show the percentage of your drives use too.  So if your drive is showing 90% obviously that’s your bottle neck. Small usb powered drives will usually max out before cpu.

    but yeah never “import” and only export using Avid processor or whatever it’s called, never using QuickTime export.

    Also your ram will be used more if you bump up you media cache, video cache settings in mc (this is just a playback tip, not ingest or export)
