Building a New LGR Editing PC! Threadripper 3970X

535 949 wyświetleń

Let's build a new Windows 10 computer! Specifically, a work PC for creating LGR videos and other intensive audiovisual tasks. My i7-6700K machine was getting a bit sluggish for editing large 4K 60fps video projects, so this AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X build will be a massive improvement.

  • *FAQ time!* Q: Why didn't you screw in the M.2 drives? A: The heatsink bars actually screw in right where the M.2 drive holes are, tightening them nicely! Only the one on the bottom-left needed a screw of its own, which I noticed after the clip seen in the video and went back to screw it in place. Not every shot makes it into the video, there were nearly 4 hours of footage I cut here! Q: Are the old parts for sale? Will you just give them to me? A: Nope! They're already in another case serving another purpose. Q: Gen4 NVMe drives exist, why didn't you buy those instead? A: I'm waiting on the Samsung 980 Pro line of drives to come out before going down that path. Could've waited, but honestly? I just got impatient and bought 970 Plus drives in the meantime since they're still a notable upgrade from the ones I had before. Q: Why the 3970X and not the 3990X? A: From the benchmarks I've seen of that CPU with the programs I use, it wasn't a huge enough performance gain to justify another $2,000. Law of diminishing returns and all that. Q: You screwed down the CPU plate in the wrong order, how could you?! A: By awkwardly working from behind a camera, tripod, and lights? Heh, my bad, I just didn't notice. Worked out just fine though! Q: How come you didn't install more fans in your case? Two fans aren't enough. A: Good thing there are _four fans_ then! There are two intakes in the front, one large exhaust one on bottom, and another huge one in the rear. I've used this case for years with no problems and so far it's been doing quite well with the Threadripper. It idles at 43°C, goes up to about 60° while editing, and peaks at 73°C under the heaviest moments of video rendering. Sure, there are ways to make it even better, but this is cool by me! As mentioned in the video, I don't want any liquid pumps or motors because my goal is near-silence. Q: Why did you install the GPU on the second slot down? Isn't that slot x8, not x16? A: It's actually installed on the _third_ slot down, which is x16, as shown on the Board Explorer screen at 16:07. Running GPU-Z confirms that it's running at full speed on all 16 lanes as well! Q: Have you heard of ~INSERT VIDEO PLUGIN/APP HERE~? A: Probably! But I'm sure you'll let me know about it anyway ;) Q: Farts? A: _Farts._

    • @Sean Tech lol I just started watching JaysTwoCents. He doesn't know how to unbox a Threadripper, but he sure knows how to install one. IIRC you need an exact amount of torque to get the CPU screwed in

So your low/no RGB is the better idea. The heat-sinks for the SSDs look amazing! Sigh. That functionality is on my list for a PC build. Do you have to worry about gravity on the massive heat-sink? Like nothing will bend over time? Or is it super light and I'm worrying for nothing?

  • I don't know why I missed this video, but I have to say that this PC is pure class, also, it amazes me that those little strips are actually SSD's, they're so small and have so much space on them! Seems like it's time to upgrade my PC, with it's one and only SSD of 250gb and a 1TB HDD lmao, also, an old AMD acta core and MSI960 4gb GPU. This video got me pumped to browse the web and build a PC, although ordering one will probably take some time since I can never make up my mind about parts and cases.

  • Hating RGB LEDs isn't an "old man thing". I'm even older than you by a whole whopping 3 years and I've been doing PC setups with colorful lights since the early 2000s. And that was back when we used florescent tubes and all of the lights were only one color, so you had to plan out a theme and fucking commit to it, before you even bought anything! My only complaint about RGB is they're *too* robust if anything. It's too easy to come up with an overall theme to the whole case *after* you've already bought the parts. There's so much less planning and creativity required now. The sense of accomplishment, style, and individuality is lessened when you can just clap your hands and change everything whenever you want. Regardless, I still love RGB though. But I don't think the anti-RGB crowd is a bunch of old men at all. They're just crotchety, grumpy, and lack real taste. >:)

  • What is that living room case? I love it and been looking to do a build for my own living room pseudoconsole pc. Also, why spend the myoney on an I9? I get you don't need the cores for a 'gaming PC," but it seems like Ryzen 7 3700x, for the price, is just far better. At this point, even If I had the money for an I9 build, i'd just spend it on a top end AMD, like Ryzen 9 or Thread ripper. The single core performance of my 3700x is more the sufficient for all modern games, plus I have the added ability of extra cores to do other things with my PC in the background should i desire (like running 5 or so VMs in the background because I forgot to turn them off... Only realized they were running when i was getting 90 fps in Modern Warfare instead of 144.) Furthermore, it seems like the trend in game design is to utilize multiple cores more. Intels better single core performance seems more justified on the lower end, when you are balancing your budget, but to go balls to the wall, AMD would be the option. Curious what brings you to intel?

  • You will love the RTX 2080 super for editing. 1080p videos being rendered quicker than you watch them is just such a blessing. Wish I could afford threadripper though... Just beyond my budget. Would Probably put it in my server rig however, since the Ryzen 7 3700x is really enough for my main rig, and my secondary would be where I'd put all my VMs and the like. Also, great choice in case. I have the Fractal Define R4 and, while it's not the flashiest case, certainly compared to my NZXT H700i, it's a great tower with plenty of storage space AND disc drive space! Great for storage heavy applications like editing, archival, and light server work, and quality build

  • Common mistake is using gaming cards for video rendering/crunching. Quattro was nVidia's solution for Render stations and should be the card used. 2080 will do the job but a designated card designed to do that job is going to be far better. Save the 2080 for gaming.

Gigabyte TRX40 DESIGNARE sTRX4 would have been a better choice since it also includes a thunderbolt add on card. Also your Corsair Vengeance LPX 128GB memory is not optimized for AMD which is a "must" to avoid latency and other issues.
