Description

Built for both video editing (After Effects and Premiere, eventually plan on switching to Davinci Resolve) and for 1080p/1440p gaming.

I think my favorite thing so far is no matter what can of load I throw at it, I literally cannot get the CPU to exceed 70 degrees and the GPU never goes higher than 69, so looks like my choices in cooling were good.

Only second machine I've ever built, so not a lot to compare to, but comparatively speaking to my old machine it has been an absolute monster for render times in both AE and Premiere.

Also ridiculously fast at encoding/transcoding/conversion batches in programs like Handbrake.

And ofc, has been great for gaming. Only tried DOOM (2016) and Modern Warfare (2019) so far, but consistently 130+ fps on Ultra 1080p or High settings on 1440p.

Also consistently 100+ fps on same settings as above when recording on high quality via Nvidia and OBS programs.

Only problem I had during construction was taking a whole day to figure out the AIO cooler, never had one before.

A whole day for an AIO? Did you lose internet connection and throw out the manual?

A whole day was a bit hyperbolic, but it was 4-5 hours. I had a hard time finding instructions H115i Platinum, almost every video kept giving instructions for H115i Pro.

Super nice/fast/cool build & components! Congratulations!!

I'm several years away from building a 16 core beast as I completed an 8 core build Dec. 2018.

Thumbs up from me. Enjoy!

Hi. Nice looking build! I am in the process of building my next workstation and I am building it around the 3900X and a UNIFY X570 mobo. It will be used mostly for 3D modeling and 3D renderings and 64Gb is the minimum req. I have more or less decided on everything apart from the ram. Due to the fact that this a dual channel configuration , if you occupy all four slots (ie 4x16Gb) you are running the risk of a substantial drop in memory performance. The whole thing becomes even more complicated as this also depends on the type of motherboard you use and the specific memory controller that the mobo has(daisy chain or t-topology) and also the actual chipset of the memory dimms (Samsung b-die or hynix). Is your memory actually running at 3600 cl16? Did you have to do any OC in order to get that? Apologies for the long message!

Sorry I didn't see this message until now. According to the bios UI it is running at cl16/3600 after turning on XMP. I don't know how to test with the OS loaded up to see if reality matches what BIOS UI reports.

Hey,

what do you say about Gigabyte AORUS NVMe Gen4 2 TB M.2 do you see any differences in speeds?
