Default Re: Haswell build

First of all please ignore my ignorance in this subject...I am a beginner in music production(Budget do come into play in my case)....I am thinking of building my own PC with protools 11...

Intel i7 4770K
Asus Z87 A
I will be using Mbox 3 interface

Will this work well?

Don't think anyone can answer your question without having done a build with that board but..

The Haswell 4770K and the Z87 chipset both work well with PT10 and 11.
The UEFI/BIOS might be the biggest difference in this generation of boards because so much function is in the processor and chipsets now.

Your selection looks like a fairly basic board which I think is a good thing for a DAW board.

Rosewill SilentNight Series 500W 80 Plus Platinum Certified Modular Design ATX12V/EPS12V Power Supply SilentNight-500

Runs tracking at a 32 buffer with a LS56 and large (50+) plugin/track counts at 512-1024.
Overclocked to 4 Ghz static.
PT 10.3.7 an 11.02 running with no crashes or lockups.
The regular PT OS settings.

DPC Latency 30-60 microseconds.

Only issue with the motherboard is the supplied driver for the Marvell onboard disk controller is junk and throws huge DPC spikes.
The Intel controller handles 6 drives so I just disabled the Marvell, but a new driver might be available.

The memory is rated at 2400, but I and others found it runs better at XMP profile 2 -2133

If you use a FW interface this MB has a built in VIA chipset that passed the Focusrite tester.
Also has a PCI slot.

Very easy build and stable.

Some info. on why I picked this over Ivy Bridge-E
http://www.anandtech.com/show/6355/i...architecture/8

Would have waited for the 8 core Haswell -E's next year but my old system had other ideas.

YMMV!
Hi try the Intel Smart Storage Drivers that works with AHCI and SCSI drives also make sure your BIOS is set to AHCI OR SCSI
This will improve disk performance

dave911 - Thank you for sharing this info. I am looking to build a similar computer.

Are you using the onboard video graphics?
