Default Re: i7 Builds - Specs and Results

I'm going to revert to my base image without PT 10 and set my bios back to default settings with exception to the manually entered primary DRAM timings, disabling speedstep, LAN2, Azalia HD audio, via 1394 controller and serial port. I'm going to reinstall PT 10 and run some dverb test with this basic setup and see what I get.

As for the actual dverb tests, I'm setting up one track as the tone generated signal, then setting up 1 mono track with 5 dverb inserts and duplicating that track until I have reached the 300 plugin count which is 60 record enabled mono tracks and finally I actually record through all 60 tracks simultaneously until I can go the full 5 min uninterrupted. I do this until it stops and tells me I'm running out of CPU.

I will let you know how it goes. Thanks for the help!

Default Re: i7 Builds - Specs and Results

Well my old computer just died so I'm looking to start a new i7 build. I've read through some of this thread but its a lot to take in. I think I've got it mostly figured out I'm just looking for the aok. I'm trying to keep costs reasonable so I'll be recycling a few things if I can.

New parts:
Intel i7 3820
ASUS P9X79 LE
Arctic Cooling i30
G.Skill Ripjaws Z DDR3 1600 16GB (4x4)
WD Caviar Black 500 GB HDD (system)
Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD (audio)
Windows 7 Home Premium

Recycled parts:
ASUS EAH4350 (I think that's the model, I'm away from my computer. Will this even be compatible with the new system?)
CD/DVD drive
SIIG FireWire card
600W PSU
Rack mount computer case
A couple of hard drives from the last computer

I'll be using PTMP 8.something for now and 2 UAD-2 Solos with a ProFire 2626 and Lucid ADA8824. I'll be updating to 9 or 10 when I get more money. Also I probably won't be doing any overclocking.

Anyone seeing anything glaringly wrong with this setup? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm hoping to order the parts by Monday. Thank you.

- Bryan

I don't see anything wrong, but I would probably use the WD Black as my recording drive

Core i7-3770K (22nm Ivy Bridge) like other supported LGA1155 chipsets host on-die graphic processors which are not recommended by Avid. Core i7-3930K however do not host on-die graphic processors thus falling in line with Avid's recommended dedicated graphic processor controllers. This may or may not be a contributing factor to LGA1155 less than successful run with Pro Tools but it can't be ruled out neither. Users do at their own risk, IMNSHO.

^^^ Filo is right ^^^

If you feel that the 3930K is out of budget for you, go with the 3820.

And pay attention to the socket. Intel i7 cpu's can be had in several flavors and only the socket 2011 will mount on the X79 mobo(and that's the route you should go).

Will do. Now I'm thinking I'll use a WD caviar blue 320GB for system, WD caviar black 500GB for audio and that Seagate 1TB for internal backup (I already own it but it's still in the box, Best Buy impulse buy right before my computer bit the dust.)

Thanks for all the help. This forum is such a great resource. Can't wait to build my new rig.

Completed the new build last night:
Asus Sabertooth x79 2011, i7-3820, Corsair HX750, Corsair Vengeance 32GB, Win 7 Pro, Coolermaster Haf.

The build was relatively simple and the PC runs like a champ, no problems at all in the build.

Installing PT LE8 on it however; A nightmare. going on the 11th hour now, and still not successful on the install.

Finally up and running, Pro tools 8.0.5 installed. The only thing I am mising is the AIRplug-ins.

To Install LE8 I had to do one piece at a time-then I updated.

Everything is running very cool-I had my PC on all day and the hottest my MOBO got was 40C, my cpu stayed a cool 22C. Everything else was in between, 32C was about the average.

I am getting some system interupts without much going on though.
