Description

This PC was built for an office user who works predominantely using Adobe Creative Cloud - Photoshop, Premiere Pro, After Effects.

As this is not a high end gaming PC, we cut a few corners when it came to the components.

AS Rock Motherboard - never will I buy one again. You can tell the cheaper build quality compared to ASUS or MSI. Motherboard standoffs are located in different places which make the motherboard flex when installing the GPU.

Nzxt S340 Case. This was chosen for the price, but also to see some of Nzxts latest ideas. I didn't like the inability to mount the radiator at the top of the case, but instead mounting on the front.

Reference GTX 970 - Cheapest 970 we could buy, only bought for the 1664 CUDA cores. We also wanted the reference design to blow the air out the back.

Build went well, the case hides a multitude of cabling sins at the back. Simple to put together, no cut fingers but can tell from the finish and styling of the case this is a budget case.

This is beautiful and clean, with perfect colour matching and cable management is everything I wish to achieve when I build my own PC. Well done!

I was wondering how is your system working with After Effects CC 2015?

Hi, apologies for the delayed response - but the user is very happy - rendering in AE 2015 has decreased by x4

wow, crazy. I read that Adobe knows about this, but they wanted to restart fresh with After Effects CC 2015 and the rendering engine. Oh well, I just have to remember the old days back to version 3.1 when we would go to the coffee shop while it was rendering!! (I know that makes me sound old!)
