New PC Up and Running

Ordered all the parts and have it assembled.

http://lacoloronline.com/blog/images/pc-parts.jpg

Here's the spec
ASUS P9X79 PRO Intel X79 Motherboard
Intel Core i7-3930K Hex Core Processor
G.SKILL 16GB (4 x 4GB) Ripjaws Z Series DDR3 2133
EVGA GeForce GTX 680 SC Signature2 2GB
Corsair HX850W 850w Power Supply
Thermaltake VN300M1W2N Chaser MK-I Full Tower Case
Cooler Master RR-212E-20PK-R1 Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler
Crucial CT256M4SSD2 M4 2.5 Inch Solid State Drive - 256GB

Instantly, after assembled the PC, I loaded Premiere Pro CS5.5 and perform the Mercury Playback Engine hack to test the performance. It was awesome to edit on a 30" display and preview at 1920x1080 1:1 on second monitor.

I picked this particular PC case as it comes with a built-in HDD dock with front USB 3.0 ports. It's important that USB ports are not aligned side by side or positioned very close together. Now I can plug in 4 SD card readers to copy DSLR footage to external HDD all at the same time.

Re: New PC Up and Running

Taky, have you tried the PPBM5 benchmark for Premiere Pro?

PPBM5 Benchmark (PPBM6 is being developed, but no results table yet.)

Post back here when you have uploaded your results.

BTW What speed are you running the 3930K at, and what is your storage set up? I am assuming you are not doing everything with a single SSD?

Trevor, I use the SSD as boot drive OS/Apps only.Then have a 4x1TB RAID 0 editing drive migrated over.
