I am also interested in how your build is working out?

I was about to upgrade my computer a year ago, but I never got the time to get it done.
How are the i9 cpu doing for you?

I am looking at a upgrade kit with these parts;
1x Intel Core i9-9900K

1x ASUS ROG Strix Z390-F GAMING, Socket-1151

1x HyperX Fury DDR4 16GB 2666MHz (2x8GB)

1x Corsair Hydro Series H60 CPU Kjøler

1x Kingston A2000 500GB M.2 SSD

Hi, its working fine. I run all my sessions at 96k/32bit and use alot of different VI’s in realtime. Often 10 to 20 different VI’s in each session. I rarely freeze tracks since I need to work fast with ideas to keep a flow in creativity. Initially i hoped i would be able set and forget the buffer size to 64 samples. But even my i9-7940x (14 core) can’t handle that. So I have set and forget it to 1024 instead. That has become the «sweet» spot on my rig.

Hi all,

Looking at a replacement for my 8 year old i5 2500k / 8Gb Win7 box. I'm eyeballing the QuietPC silent PCs - silence is golden and so on. I've upgraded the i5 over the years with new fans, SSDs and so on, but I'm hitting the Win7 expiration date and looking to move to something for the next 8 years.

DAW-wise, I currently run PT11 through a Lynx Aurora 16 LT-USB, summed to a Neve 8816: happily outputting at 24-48, a fistful of plugins, and only really starts crapping out when I'm loading mammoth Spitfire libraries...

For air-cooled PCs, I've seen the Nofan CR-80EH fanless cooler, which has a maximum CPU wattage of 80W. This basically rules out the Intel K/X series, but not the regular 9700 and 9900 Intels.

Thinking of
ASUS TUF Z390M-PRO
i9 9900 65W
64Gb Corsair Vengence
2 x 960 EVOs (system and personal files) / 860 EVOs (PT sessions) / SSHDs for samples

My question, really, is in true GAS fashion yes it would be great to have a 9900K burning a hole through the PC case, in the same way a 3.6L V6 is 'better' than a 2.0L 4 cylinder in the same car, but benchmarks aside what are the real world practical differences - have Avid ever said 'PT shalt not work on anything less than 150W of CPU'? Both cars go from A to B so to speak and I'm not planning to run 256 instances of Sylenth at 24-192.

If I need more channels in the future, I'd likely go Dante over Thunderbolt, since it means I can mix and match interfaces over Windows.

Any thoughts?
