Description

This machine is not mine, unfortunately. I chose the parts and built the machine for a colleague who wanted a new workstation for 4K video editing. The two WD hard drives, a card reader and a 960 EVO SSD were transferred from his old machine. In the future even more will be upgraded with 64 GB Crucial RAM. The Coler Master case is excellent choice for every ATX air cooled PC. Be Quiet! fans are efficient and their value/price ratio is very good. In this machine there are three NVME SSD, one is under the Gigabyte RTX 2080. That's why I chose a blower style GPU.

Looks awesome. I’m interested in the temps on that video card, I’d assume it’s hella throttling and super loud under any sort of load.

Thanks! The card is pretty quiet on idle. After 30 minutes in FurMark the temperature was 71 degrees and yes, it was loud! :)

That’s cooler than I thought it would run, TBH. I expected it to easily hit the thermal limit, but I guess Gigabyte was able to brute force their way under it.

This gets an upvote because I never really thought about why stuff was green until now. Fun bit of info.

I was asking why did the customer get that kind of ram, and also I never used crucial, Ive only used TridentZ and Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB depending of the build

I was looking for RAM from big manufacturer. These are Micron products.

Well he copy pasted all that info, lol here's the first part https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Elvz9A_VJK0 . I was a TA in school and had the annoying job of catching plagiarism . Not that I really care, it's just easy to track down and I am having a bad day.

wow nice chip and board, are you running the two 500gb drives in Raid 0? and just querious but why not use a quadro card? That case is badass also, I think I may grab one. Thanks for the post

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it. :) Only the two WD drives are in software RAID 1. The 970 EVO 500 is for OS, the 960 EVO is dedicated media cache/scratch drive for Premiere Pro and the 970 EVO 1 TB is for the footage files of the current premiere project. From the beginning I was thinking in Quadro P6000, but when I heard the budget, I realized that only this card costs more than the entire PC. The Quadro P4000 has a similar price to this Gigabyte card, but I saw some video rendering test and the P4000 was weaker than the RTX 2080. This case is my new favorite. High quality, thoughtful, with many useful ideas (removable motherboard tray, X-dock). Don't hesitate to grab one! :)

How is the RAM clearance? A buddy wants to install Trident Z RGB memory on a x299 mobo and use this cooler.. do you think it wil fit or is it too tight?

It's a good question. The height of TridentZ is 44mm, but on CPU cooler, the height under the front fan is only 40mm, but on the BeQuite website there is an interesting picture in the gallery: https://www.bequiet.com/en/cpucooler/1378

I found this build though that uses the dark rock pro 4 and trident z memory.. So I am confident that I can make it work https://pcpartpicker.com/b/mChypg . I may need to remount the front fan to higher fins tho
