Re: Best Systems and Components for Win HD/TDM

That MB looks pretty good. Hopefully the big heatsink or whatever it is (says workstation on it) will allow the cards to snap fully into the slots. If it does, looks like you could run a pretty...

Re: Best Systems and Components for Win HD/TDM

I don't think this MB would work for HD3. The PCI slots would need to be right next to each other for the HD cards to work. It would probably be great for HD2 though.

Re: Best Systems and Components for Win HD/TDM

Hey Brandon,
Our computer is set-up in a machine room, so I've never really paid attention to the noise level. It does seem pretty quiet though.

Re: Best Systems and Components for Win HD/TDM

For my lastest build, I used an Ikonik case that I got from newegg. Here's the link.

Re: Best Systems and Components for Win HD/TDM

Finding a MB for an i7 with 3 consecutive PCI slots is hard. Digi user "kirkgale" and I are currently both using the Supermicro X8SAX. It runs a HD2 great, but kirkgale is having issues with Pro...

Re: Best Systems and Components for Win HD/TDM

I know. I wonder what Supermicro would have to say about it. We might just have to stay at HD2. :( We could at least upgrade to HD Accel, as we're non-Accel right now.

When I did a search for...

Re: Best Systems and Components for Win HD/TDM

I'm glad it's working stable for you. Too bad it's not stable with all the cards.

I'm not going to be at the studio until tomorrow to verify my the PCI latency timer settings for you. Let me...

Re: Best Systems and Components for Win HD/TDM

In the MB manual it is labeled as slot 1, the one closest to the edge of the MB.


I'm not at the studio right now, so I will definately check that later and get back to you. I did not tweek any...

Re: Best Systems and Components for Win HD/TDM

We have the core card in the bottom PCIx slot, and a process card in the pcix slot above it. The PCI is empty right now. Three tracking sessions later and we've had absolutely no issues. The...

Re: Best Systems and Components for Win HD/TDM

I decided on this MB after reading your posts. I figured even if I had to go back to XP, at least this MB can do a HD3.

After installing Windows 7 64 bit, I updated the new computer online on...

Re: Best Systems and Components for Win HD/TDM

Just finished a new build for PTHD but with pci cards. It's based on a Supermicro X8SAX, Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield, and Windows 7 64 bit. We've got an HD2 in it, but the board can do an HD3. ...

Re: Best Systems and Components for Win HD/TDM

Hello Louis. It's good to hear of your rocking system, as I'm thinking of going the i7 route as well.

When you said that everything was a "tight squeeze", did you have to modify anything to...

Re: Best Systems and Components for Win HD/TDM

You can squeeze out a little more memory (about 2.5G) for Pro Tools HD8 by using the 3G switch. :cool:
