Default Re: i7 Builds - Specs and Results

Thanks for the words of wisdom, just to follow up, the 9093 errors are appearing on all versions of PT (10,11 and 12) and have removed my NIC and that didnít help.

In relation to the slower 5400 drive for samples, that is something I plan to upgrade in the future but the errors happen even when not using samples or VIís, I guess the chipset is a possibility.

Has anyone got a micro-atx mobo they can recommend for a skylake build?

Kind Regards

Are you guys still doing the x99 mobo for pt18? I just hurt my z87 (i7) I think. (CPU fan slowed down to 300rpm for hours...ever since the computer runs slow with protools). I think it's time to upgrade anyhow.

Just checking what the most up to date bad ass system is.

Thanks!

Neil

Default i7 Builds - Specs and Results

I think most people would go with X299 and LGA2066 Processors. But there is always a premium ($$$$$) on the newest of the new.


I have an X99 that I built this year and itís wonderful.

Thanks for the reply. I'm hoping I can limp this system along for a bit longer. However, this machine runs in a full time studio that works every day. We're actually looking to shut down in May for 3 months for some major renovations around the building.

Is there a dependable CPU test I can run to figure out what's wrong with this thing? We have a hard time tracking with less than 256 samples on the hw buffer. ProTools tends to open and close sessions pretty slowly lately as well. It seems like thread 4 is taxed much harder than the other 7 threads my i7 has.

Here's the funny part: When protools is struggling (sometimes the screen will lock for a bit) , the rest of the computer is still able to function. For example, pro tools is thinking really hard about opening slate vmr, but I can open a browser and play on the internet without lag during this state. Is that a clue?

You should start a new thread about a problem

List your hardware and all drives as well as all OSís and PT installs


Like Iím talking specs of your drives, memory and GPU.

I'm enjoying improvements on every single front, not just performance. Even ear fatigue, of all things.

That 8700K, though. Man oh man, is it ever smooth and quick. VERY responsive.
Do you experience any cpu spikes With this set up?

I have not noticed anything or looked at Task Manager lately. I had some small process spikes at first, but they went away when I disabled the wireless network card in Device Manager.

I'll take a look this weekend to verify.

The BIOS overclocking is just as it was reported by someone here a few weeks ago. Extremely smooth. I reverted back as I have not come close to needing it. I'll never know first-hand how the 8700K compares to the past few years, but it's blowing the doors off my 6-year old 3rd gen machine.

I see you system specs in your signature. I'm thinking of doing something very similar in the next couple of months. I would need to add a fast and powerful graphics card too, as I'm doing more with video/games etc.

I am curious as to how you're CPU is handling some of the more resource intensive VI's and plugins, such as Omnisphere, Dune II, or Serum. I don't which ones you have, but these are the ones that have made me decide to upgrade the system to more power. I'm tired of seeing my CPU usage meter peg into red even with a modest amount of VI's and plugins active.
