I have a tricky question here. I built my first desktop November 2018. A very close friend of mine helped me building and he did a great job. I saved a couple thousand dollars and I bought everything that I really wanted: Threadripper + TX 2080 TI + 64GB memory + M2. 2280 + Kraken 72x etc. Basically I do a lot of live streaming using the new Elgato 4K Capture Card (Straight from both my Xbox and PS4). Also I'm a video and 3D maker and combining everything together I'm pretty sure this is a great desktop.
But It seems there's something ODD happening and I'd like to list here to see if anyone can help me or either tell me if I have to rebuild this computer.
First issue: computer takes almost 30s to wake up or power up. Normally when I don't need to work on computer anymore I just put to sleep. When I press my keyboard and all leds/fans/parts inside the computer turns on It takes around 30s to see the Windows login screen. Is that normal?
As I mentioned I make a lot of videos/3D and I'm not sure about the rendering time. A 15 minute vídeo takes about 10 minutes to render. 3D animations takes waaaaaaaaaaay more. Is that normal?
There's a couple other tasks that I do on the computer and I believe it's taking more than normal: Chrome runs slow (I know but It's too much), Some apps are running slow etc.
After using the Elgato 4K for like 60 to 90 minutes the capture starts having a weird behave: It seems the capture card shuts down and reboots. I lost my video for like 5s, black screen. Let's say I use my Xbox One X (4K and HDR activated), One HDMI cable from Xbox to Elgato, so I can at least see the image on my computer application. Then a second HDMI cable from Elgato to my 4K HDR monitor so I can play the game with no delay. After 60-90 minutes I start to get black screen on both Elgato computer App and my monitor. This is not the end of the word for me. Since I deactivated HDR from both Xbox and Elgato APP, I don't see the issue, BUT, still I want to play using the best picture.
Overall I'm really mostly concerned about my computer speed/processing time that It seems to be taking more than normal for this kind of machine.
Thank you guys and sorry for my English.
