new edit PC specs

I'm about to upgrade to give me a bit more grunt editing 4k in Edius

EVGA SuperNOVA 650W G1 80+ Gold
Modular Power Supply

Windows 10 Professional 32/64-bit USB

G.Skill Ripjaws V 32GB (2x 16GB) DDR4
3200MHz Memory 1 $539.00 $539.00

Intel Core i7 8700K Hex Core LGA
1151-2 3.70 GHz Unlocked CPU

Gigabyte GA-Z370-HD3 Z370 LGA
1151-2 ATX Motherboard

ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 DUAL OC 6GB
Video Card

Corsair Hydro Series H55 120mm Quiet
Liquid CPU Cooler

Fractal Design Define R5 Mid Tower
Case - Black

Intel 600p 256GB 80mm PCIE 3.0 X4
M.2 SSD SSDPEKKW256G7X1

I'll be transferring data drives from my old computer

Don't know much about overclocking but I thought I'd include the water cooling just in case and I think the SSD may have to be changed to a Samsung 960 EVO for speed.

any other suggestion/comments?

Re: new edit PC specs

Instead of water cooler/over clocking, put your money into a larger ssd drive that you can edit on

Re: new edit PC specs

Hi Paul,

I don't use Edius, preferring Magix VPX, but I think that Edius is optimized for Intel processors in the same way that Magix is.

Your proposed system sounds plenty fast enough for 4k editing, it's faster than mine and I can use 3 parallel 4k video streams with smooth playback. There are just a couple of things that I would query though. I had a fast nVidea graphics card that I have now removed because I get better performance using the graphics capability of the Intel i7. Also,apart from a faster boot up time, I can't see much point in a 250Gb SSD drive, as working with the greater memory requirements of 4k you will need to use another internal drive for your editing, one that gives you at least 20-30% headroom over the total project file sizes or you will have a bottle neck that will slow you down.

just my opinion of course based on my own experiences and others may choose to differ.

Roger

Re: new edit PC specs

I think the 250gb ssd is intended as bootdrive for windows and programs and for that it's big enough, for editing I agree is way too small. I would get the samsung 960 evo which is becoming a very popular and is a very fast ssd. I use a 250gb 960evo for windows and programs and a 1tb 960evo and a 6tb western digital drive for editing. The WD is also pretty fast for a mechanical drive as I get around 220mbs speeds when I copy data.

Re: new edit PC specs

If you want quick boot times and program execution use a M.2 drive. I have the SAMSUNG 960 EVO M.2 250GB in my new system for OS and programs and it is lightning fast.

Re: new edit PC specs

Thanks guys - all great suggestions.

I'm transferring over 3 drives in a raid0 config for data so the SSD is just for programs & operating. (I have a Synology raid5 to back everything up)

I've just emailed them to change the SSD to the Samsung EVO
