First time that Prem Pro (CS5) feels SNAPPY

Hi guys,

Upgraded my pooter to a i7-930 @ 4 ghz with HT and 12 gb of DDR3 mem. Storage: 1x SSD System, 1x SSD Prem Pro, 1x SSD temp/scratch + 2x1tb Stripe HDD. Geforce 480 CUDA - I patched Prem pros list of accepted CUDA cards and now have Mercury enabled.

WoW! This system Rockz! I can edit full HD material in real time and PPro feels responsive and snappy all the time! I'm pleased!

Cooling a rig like this can be a pain, so I bought a large case, Coolermaster HAF 932 + corsair H50 watercooling for the cpu(modified the H50 to push-pull dual fan). With this case and cooling, my max CPU temp is about 70C - well under the recommended max at 85C(after 90C the cpu throttles down).

// Lasse

It is amazing!!
Finally, the NLE software, the OS, the CPU, RAM, and GPU have risen to the level where it all actually works like it's supposed to for HD editing.
It's been quite a journey.

Agree! I remember when doing a standard DV -> DVD took like 6 hours :-)

My first PC (I was an Amiga guy before) was a 486 DX2 66, just counting cpu power, my current machine is 600 times faster *s*

Glad to hear you are so happy with the new build. It should give you a lot of fun.

One remark if I may. I have a 920 that runs a lot hotter than the 930 and my system is clocked at 3.7 GHz. Under load my system does not reach 65C, even on long encodes with AME. It runs around 80C using Prime95 torture tests for more than 8 hours in a row. But that is overclocked on a hotter CPU and using air.

Your 70C seems pretty high. 980X's, even overclocked to 4.0 GHz, run at less than 70C on air with the Prime95 torture test. Is your water cooling properly setup? Or is the story about water cooling, that it does not bring anything, true?

Harm,

The H50 isn't a super cooler - it is very small and compact - so the temps are as expected( when I compare to other builds). A big fan-tower wasn't an option for me, cause then the spitfire cooler on my GF 480 wouldn't fit.

I can lower my temps by disabling HT( -15 C ).

In a real watercooling setup with a bigger RAD(mine is 12cm) and a large reservoair will make a huge difference - but it is to messy for me.

My CPU is also seriously overclocked, from 2.8 to 4.1ghz
