  1. Sli doesn't do anything for rendering other than cut your vRam in half and cause issues. I turn it off when rendering and it helps. As for a Thread to operate, even with a video card and 2 m.2 drives, you're not going to be saturating your PCIe bus, so that's not an issue. More cores might be nice, but I'd save money. You would gain quad channel memory, so that's a plus. Either would work, but the motherboard is more expensive

But it's my general idea. Dual non sli cards are used a little for rendering in Adobe After Effects and using Cinema 4D lite within and some of the color correction built into Premiere. But one card will be almost as efficient as a single. They will run at 8x 8x, which is perfectly fine for PCIe 3.0, no real bottlenecks.
  3. If you can wait, the 12 core Ryzen CPU that's looking to be released this year would probably be best for cost. Really, having 4 mismatched GPU won't help too much, 2 is more than enough for rendering. I've got dual 1080s for rendering and rarely do both hit above 60 percent for different rendering tasks. Only task that really hits them is rendering raw video into manageable files, but that's rare. Personally, I'd do a 30xx series Ryzen 12 core, 64gb of 3200 speed ram and dual or tripple m.2 drives (non raid) for swapping files around and read /write drives. Then using regular 7200rpm disks for storage. Use a watercool AIO on the processor though. With multi hour encoding, the temps build up and having a tripple rad helps give more surface area to get rid of the constant 90+ percent CPU usage. System like that should be between 1000 and 1500. The ram and multiple SSDs would be expensive. You could do dual 16gb sticks (kit) and leave room to upgrade to 64 without removing anything.
  4. Came across this... Might help you, might not.
  5. Physically remove one card and see if that help too Also try one card without the bridge as a non sli setup
  6. Federal courts have said flashing lights to warm other drivers of speed traps is legal under the 1st Amendment. I do wonder how this will go.
  7. Does it crash running stress tests as well? Prime95 and Haven? Or 3Dmark

    Asus Crosshair VI hero Usb C not working

    Same mobo... I have to leave a device plugged in for a few minutes for it to connect. It's annoying
  9. If you have an extra drive lying around, you could install the new OS to that and disconnect the other drives. This would allow you to test all of the non drive hardware and if the problem doesn't fix itself, then you can reconnect all drives and not lose your install.

    AMD build stuttering

    Is the PSU new? It actually sounds like an electrical issue, as you're getting static through audio as well. I'd recommend swapping for a different PSU if you have one to try. Also try running a HW monitor and make sure fans are spinning (CPU and GPU) as Ai Suite made mine default to 0 no matter the temps unless I turn it off Auto.

    60fps please !

    One could make the argument for 60fps due to EFP and television broadcast but rarely for video such as this. Honestly, I'm surprised they don't shoot on 24fps instead. Some of it comes down to technical issues, which I'm surprised never got mentioned so far. Switching from 30fps to 60 is a loss of a stop of light, and in order to maintain the same quality, it means the studio lights have to be twice as bright. I don't know if anyone has been on a shoot before, but the lights are bright enough as it is when stopped down. You would have to step way up on the T/F-stops to get a correct exposure. Another reason is sharpness. Video is moving pictures, not freeze frames. Even the human eye blurs things out ever a certain speed. Sure, we can record a video at 120fps at 8000s shutter speed of a fan blade and capture every single detail, every second, in pure sharp detail. And then we can watch it and know something doesn't look right. Or we can shoot 24fps and get a cinematic blur and have good looking frames. Sure you can't pause it and pick out wood grain anymore, but it's more natural looking film. But... That all being said, LTT would qualify as broadcast video rather than cinema. Meaning industry standard is 4k60p.
  12. I think the channel hydraulic press channel did this (or their sub channel) because it's freezing in Finland a lot. They put the PC outside in sub Zero temps and it ran really cold. The only issue was when it warmed up inside (the outside temps kept condensation away) it was full of water and had to dry for a while. Edit: found it...
  13. At that price, you're talking a 10 to 15tb Enterprise 12gbs SAS SSD, not a HDD

    dual xeon cpu rig

    Don't. Search for, I think it was the 8-core dual CPU video... Im on my phone or I would link it. A cheap Ryzen would work better

    Need a Complete Back Up Solution

    Im in a similar situation, but only use 1 PC, so my backup situation was a little easier, but the process would be the same. I built another system using cheap Mobo and CPU, a raid controller and 6 8TB hdds, setup in raid 10. My main system has dual gb lan ports, so I have it directly conntected via a patch cable which runs on a separate network than my home network. I would have put in a 10gb network card if I needed constant access, but I don't. Everything is scheduled to monitor certain folders on that data drives on my PC and run backups every weekend if the files have been updated at any time. I forget which software I used, I'm currently on my phone but I know I didn't buy it, it was free. I only use cloud storage for active projects, as I find that eaiser than USB drives between my laptop and desktop as I put the raw files on both from the start. I just found it was much eaiser to build a raid storage system than buy an off the shelf model.
