The fan in the top middle exhausting outward might steal airflow away for the AIO. I understand why you might want to have an additional one for GPU exhaust, but it would help the airflow patterns in the case if you only had 2 intakes and the AIO exhausting. Making the AIO push-pull with that fan is what I would do.
Decent part choices, just needs more intake fans. Some HP-12s from Fractal would work in the front.
No problem! You can get a Xeon E5-1680 V2 and do a slight overclock on it with this board and BIOS version F7. It's worth a shot if you were looking for an upgrade without switching motherboards. 1680 V2 is 8 cores, 16 threads.
Yup, x16 for both GPUs, x4 for the Decklink Mini Recorder 4K, x1 for the USB 3.0 controller, plus all the onboard devices, which work for VFIO (minus the VIA USB 3.0 controller, which I disable whenever I run VFIO/QEMU/KVM)
+9001 for use of a M.2 riser for the Vive Wireless Adapter. Another +9001 for doing this in an ITX case!
If your X79-UP4 is revision 1.1, you can replace that 4960X with a E5-1660 V2 or E5-1680 V2 Xeon. (BTW, they're overclockable with unlocked multipliers)
If it's revision 1.0, 4960X is the best you can go.
Good choice for the capture card! You running Dual System for streaming?
How's the iGPU performance in Premiere? And does the iGPU acceleration work with the 9900K?
You also need to have UEFI bootable NVMe support, and X58 I believe still runs on BIOS.
Finding a old OCZ or Intel PCI-E SSD with bootable support might be better.
Right, via an external controller. Many boards back then had external SATA 3 controllers. Might not have as much throughput as a native controller so I'd still get a 860 EVO.
Well on your way to a good Tech YES loving!
Since this is X58, you don't need more than a 860 EVO since the SATA interface is only SATA 2, not SATA 3.
How's Vega in Linux? Has it gotten better since launch?
How does this work with Premiere CC? Does it work with iGPU acceleration?
Also, in my experience, Premiere likes CUDA more for Mercury acceleration.
Also, you can NATIVELY render ProRes with this setup! Windows Premiere can never render native ProRes at proper broadcast QC passing quality.
Paul's Hardware should see this. Proper competition for Riptide!
Evidence of negative pressure is clear with the dust in the picture. Flip the AIO to intake instead of exhaust. It will help with dust.
Try Cinnamon Desktop Environment. You'll be glad you did. It's way more beginner friendly than KDE.
You could try your hand at QEMU/KVM Linux GPU passthrough with that card as the host GPU if you are inclined to experiment with virtualization.
You may need to flip your AIO radiator fans to be intake. You're completely in a negative pressure airflow situation right now which sucks in dust. All your fans are exhaust with no intakes.
This is art. This is ACTUALLY art.
I smell a feature.
Curious if you could run GPU Passthrough on your Arch system with one of those Quadros, and if you don't need the error code 43 workaround.
For music production, you can achieve higher XMP clocks with 3200Mhz RAM if you only use 2 sticks per side. The Flare X RAM has good CAS latencies for music production, and I'd recommend a swap to 2 16GB 2x8GB sets of RAM.
Yes, but you listed a non-K part which can't be overclocked. Throw a Dark Rock Pro 4 and a 2600K with a healthy overclock and you can overcome a lot.
I said it in my initial comment. The Dark Rock Pro 4 from be quiet!
Getting a Dark Rock Pro 4 might allow you to overclock your 4790K further, since it has the better thermal paste compared to the 4770K. Since you are doing 144hz, overclocking will start to become necessary with that 1070.
1440p 144hz might require more upgrades to a new CPU and GPU, so focus on overclocking the CPU with a good air cooler to maximize your 1080p 144hz.
You could move to Ubuntu 18.04 instead of a new Windows, cause of Proton/Steam Play.
So much power in a Silverstone Sugo!
How are the clocks and temps on the Vega Nano?
2 rare sights:
a HD DVD/Blu-Ray combo drive.
Do be aware, that although the Samsung TN monitor is one of the cheapest 4K monitors out there, it does not support HDCP 2.2 required for Netflix 4K and Amazon Prime Video 4K.
One of the people still using Win 7 with Ryzen! Nice!
Remember to patch Windows Update to not check what processor you have, to continue receiving updates.
Also remember to enable XMP (DOCP) cause you want the RAM running at the max possible speed for audio production.
The stock magnetic filter looks very coarse on the back wall fan, inhibiting airflow. I'd recommend a Silverstone ultra fine dust filter for that intake. The bottom intake is good though, just that one on the back wall.
Vcore is more durable than the VTT, and VTT is more durable than the System Agent. System Agent is the one that rapidly degrades the CPU.
The buzzing sound is coil whine. Was it louder than usual? If it was, the RMA was in order.
If you're going for the GPU heatsink, pushing cool air on the fins is better than pulling heat away, since cool air directly hitting the fins and the VRM is better than trying to extract heat with negative pressure (also sucks in dust from other parts of the case)
That CPU will benefit vastly from a Coolit AIO, like the 280mm H115i Platinum that was just released.
Be very careful bumping up VTT and System Agent when overclocking these CPUs, as if you feed too much of those voltages (Never above 1.25 actual VTT and 1.05 actual System Agent) CPU degradation can happen within WEEKS of your overclock.
Just make sure to get Revision II cause that one fixes the corrosion issues the first revision had.
It's a spacecraft that gathered rocks from an asteroid. It's first mission succeeded, it's 2nd mission is currently ongoing.
For a moment without lighting, I thought one of your flight sticks was a Pip Boy.
What's your RAM speed? Not familiar with Broadwell-E and how high it can clock the memory.
You're extremely lucky to be able to buy a Swiftech AIO. Those were handed a cease and desist in the US.
Also, is the build named after the Japanese space probe?
Nice to see the Air 540 still has new builds with them! Have you looked into KVM/QEMU on Linux yet?
Wendell would be proud! This is literally one of the best configs you can get right now for a "do everything" machine.
Yeah, a flat panel reservoir would really compliment the look. Multiple companies are starting to get on this trend.
Are you planning to get an acrylic reservoir/pump for the O11 Dynamic? Bitspower is supposedly making one.
And sluggishness with an OC can be resolved if you do a PBO overclock rather than a fixed overclock.
32000mhz is still a good Memory speed, you just need to tighten timings without touching the memory speed.
If you can, tighten the timings on your RAM for music production. It could help your DPC latency.
That's the critical part, ASUS calling it a "Twin 8-phase." That just doesn't fly.
5Ghz on a 4-phase mobo means you DEFINITELY hit the silicon lottery.
The dev is working on making the performance better, potentially seeing if NvFBC will work for making the capture better vs the current DXGI based capture solution.
Eyyyy! KVM/QEMU brother!
Shame the 2080 can't be passed through in the primary slot. Have you attempted Looking Glass yet? The hardware seems good enough to do that: https://looking-glass.hostfission.com/
Do you have fan headers on the back of the card? If not, this is the first run of the cards.
Ditto. This is one of the boards I'm considering for VFIO.
If you need the code to list your groups, it's here:
