New Editing Station PC

Posted on 10/26/2012 1:44:00 PM

Modeled after Videoguys DIY9 Recommended Build. we put together a new kick ass editing PC.
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
* Meow Meow is not included
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.

It scores 7.8 in Windows Experience Index.

Posted by Tom Bostick on 10/30/2012 1:04:00 AM that built in hdd dock is sweet!

Replied by LA Color Pros Tom, yes! It is really convenience now I can backup to external bare HDD easily without another dock with AC adapter and another cable going around. Also, pay attention to those USB ports, they are aligned vertically with room between each. Our previous editing station 4 USB ports were so closed together, I can only plug-in 2 USB card readers at one time.
