For the professional video editor - Massive VFX muscle for dense projects!


  • Silent Mid-Tower case
  • 750w Quiet power-supply
  • Intel i9 10900k @ 5.3GHz (8 cores) - Comet Lake
  • 32GB DDR4
  • 500GB SSD (OS/Applications)
  • GTX-1660 (6GB - four monitors)
  • Windows 10 x64
  • 2 year warranty


  • Case:

    The stock Silent Mid-Tower case (acoustically treated to minimize noise) is sturdy and roomy with a total of 10 drive bays.

    Upgrade to the Deluxe version if you want to run more than two 5.25" drives.


    Power-Supply:

    The 750w, 850w, and 1000w units are ultra quiet (fan only runs under heavy loads).

    If you're running many bus-powered peripherals, lots of internal drives, or dual high-end video cards... select the 850w or 1000w.


    CPU:

    The 10900k (ten cores) provides twenty processing threads (twenty virtual cores) at 5.3GHz.


    RAM:

    32GB (dual-channel) is sufficient for most video editors.

    For hard-core editing, the Pro Video NLE allows up to 128GB.


    OS drive:

    Small SSD as OS drive is what we recommend for most clients.

    With a SSD, the machine boots quicker, apps open quicker, and navigating the OS is a little more "snappy".


    Video drive:

    Conventional HD sustains ~190MB/Sec.

    SSD sustains ~540MB/Sec.

    Choose the video drive/s based on your space and performance requirements.


    m.2 Ultra SSD:

    m.2 Ultra SSDs use 4 PCIe lanes and sustain ~3500MB/Sec (eighteen times the speed of conventional HD).

    Placing your video editor's cache on m.2 Ultra SSD can help mitigate sluggish performance with heavy projects.


    Burner:

    24x DVD/RW handles all CD/DVD burning needs (which is fine for most users).

    If you're working with high-res or video projects (huge files), 16x BDR (Blu-ray Burner) is convenient.


    Video:

    For editing/rendering video, you want a GTX/RTX card (provides hardware accelerated processing/rendering).

    To run three or four monitors, you'll want to select one of the GTX/RTX cards.

    To run 4k monitors, select one of the GTX/RTX cards (connect via HDMI or Display Port).


    Firewire:

    If you're using a Firewire audio interface or external HD, add a TI chipset Firewire controller.

    Most Firewire audio interfaces and HDs work well with the lower cost "For all others" option.

    If using a Tascam, Mackie, or Universal Audio unit, you'll need to select the more expensive controller.


    Thunderbolt:

    On the PC, we now have complete "PCIe via Thunderbolt" support.

    You must be running an up-to-date install of Win10 and have a motherboard that provides Thunderbolt-3 via USB-C port.

    RME, MOTU, Presonus, and UA have full "PCIe via Thunderbolt" drivers actually available.  Others are currently testing.

    To use a Thunderbolt audio interface, you'll also need a Thunderbolt-3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt adapter.


    Operating System:

    At this point, nearly all major audio software/hardware is working well with Windows 10 x64.

    For most users, we now recommend Windows 10 x64 Pro.

    "Pro" version has Group Policy Editor (easy to shut down OneDrive, Cortana, etc)... and can fully disable all automatic updates.
