  1. Built a new machine around a month ago and around 50% of the time when the PC startsup, it blue screens (CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED). After this it automatically restarts but then my Sabrent Rocket PCIe SSD isn't recognized and it therefore cannot find a startup drive. I then turn off the PC, remove the SSD and reinsert. I then restart the PC and all is fine. On top of this the startup time for the PC is around the 20 second mark and every startup includes the CPU debug LED lighting up then the VGA debug LED. Also I have checked for any dump files for the blue screen and there aren't any there.
  2. I've checked the boot order as well as looking for any tests running, none as far as I can see. My main concern is why the CPU debug LED is on for so long?
  3. Don't think it is normal for the BIOS post to take that long though, I think it should be below 10 seconds at least?
  4. Just completed a new build, when I initially boot the machine each time the CPU debug led on the motherboard lights up, then after about 5-10 seconds the light goes away (sometimes it happens a second time), the VGA LED lights up quickly and the computer boots as normal. In task manager the last BIOS time is currently listed at 17.2 seconds which is pretty long. Then once booted everything runs absolutely fine. PC: - Windows 10 Home Version: 1903 64 Bit - Ryzen 7 3700X - MSI Gaming Pro Carbon AC B450 (updated BIOS to 7B85v1A) - Hyper X 32gb (2x16GB) Ram
  5. Think I'll go with the Zotac then!
  6. In the UK the gigabyte is another £25 over the Zotac though!
  7. Interesting about the Ventus cards, for £60 less than the Ventus 1660 ti I can get a Zotac 1660 gaming which may be a better idea?
  8. Just remembered that Premiere actually makes quite good use of the CUDA cores for accelerated rendering and the 1660 ti has quite a few more so think I'll stick with it
  9. I about to pull the trigger on my new purely video/photo editing PC (Premiere, Lightroom, Photoshop and Avid Media Composer). One quick question, as there isn't much utilisation of the graphics card in these programs is it worth me spending the £50 extra on a 1660 Ti compared to a 1660?

  10. This thread is turning into a full time job for you! Thanks a load! Think I'm gonna go with the 3700X as it seems to be one of the best for price to performance. Gonna return the Vega 56 for the 1660, should hopefully be quieter as well due to it not being a blower style cooler.

  11. Okay thanks, I would be getting the i9 9900 anyway so there won't be any overclocking!
  12. Wow thanks for all the info! The 750W PSU was bought just because it was a good price and cheaper than a 550W 80+ Gold so just went for it. So I think everything comes down to 2 questions now: 1. Go with the i9 9900 based system with the Gigabyte Z390 UD or go for the Ryzen 7 2700X (half the price!) based system with a slightly better motherboard, then have money left over for a new monitor? 2. Keep the Vega 56 and accept it is a better video card than a 1660 but doesn't have CUDA, or return the Vega 56 for a 1660 and get the advantage of CUDA but with a smaller amount

  14. No the were really good deals and they will fit fine (Vega 56 - Under £200 and Corsair Vengeance 750W for £50). £1100 is the budget in total. Definitely going to have to consider Ryzen again now! All the benchmarks I have seen put the i7+i9 way ahead of Ryzen in premiere but as that video mentions thats all to do with render times and not timeline performance. I am definitely going to get 32GB of RAM as well.
