  1. Regarding your testing, I don't think 1080p provides a large enough workload to see much benefit. Puget has completed their testing of the new Ryzen chips: https://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/Premiere-Pro-CPU-Roundup-AMD-Ryzen-3-AMD-Threadripper-2-Intel-9th-Gen-Intel-X-series-1535/
  2. Yes. Before removing the fan , its best to run the PC so that the paste heats up and doesn't stick so tightly to the the CPU. Then give the heatsink a little twist to break it free from the CPU before pulling on it. You can also heat up the paste with a hair dryer.
  3. So the old RAM works, but not the new RAM. May need to return it and get some Crucial, G. Skill, or Corsair. If you have to re-order, maybe get 3000 just to be safe. You can use the RAM configurators previously linked to find RAM pre-tested to work in that MB. You can try one stick in each slot and see if it posts, then try the other stick. It was a kit, right? Not two singles?
  4. Here are the recommendations prior to Ryzen 3000: https://www.pugetsystems.com/recommended/Recommended-Systems-for-Adobe-Premiere-Pro-CC-143/Hardware-Recommendations Well, the 3700X came out at the same list price as the 2700X, it's just that now they have put the 2700X's on sale trying to clear them out. No reason not to take advantage of a good sale, though You could get a nice B450 or X470 MB now with the 2700(X) and use it. Later, when the 3900X's go down in price, you could trade up if you see the need. Maybe all you really needed was Quick Sync! I've
  5. Yes, that's a good entry level NVMe drive. https://www.anandtech.com/show/13078/the-intel-ssd-660p-ssd-review-qlc-nand-arrives
  6. I have no idea, but unless my eyes deceived me, it's been going in and out of stock. Maybe give it another 11 hours and 59 minutes
  7. The 580's are a little more powerful than the 1060 6GB. Sapphire has a reputation for making good AMD cards. Read the professional and user reviews and get the one you like, but be careful with Amazon reviews because they mix different card reviews in the same section. At Newegg it seems that only dissatisfied users write reviews no matter what the component.
  8. Be sure and click on the auto notify button for the combo. What software are you using for editing and CAD?
  9. The Mugen 5 is an excellent choice for a nice overclock. For a maximum overclock, you may need a NH-D15. The 9900K has trouble getting the heat from the CPU to the CPU heat spreader, not from the heat spreader to the aftermarket heatsink. The only solution for that is delidding the cpu. External storage for back-up doesn't need to be fast. If he needs quick access to videos for deliveries though, that's different. Stick with those Samsung drives for reliability. Get 3000 DDR4. Is he editing 4K videos? If so, he needs 32GB minimum. Get a better MB
  10. Premier Pro does a bit better with Nvidia cards, so I would stick with one of those.
  11. Well, I find it difficult too, esp. since I don't do video editing my understanding is limited. I thought with the rendering, though, that you can set everything up and walk away while it churns away on your project? Those videos came out prior to Ryzen 3000 and I've been trying to find out the current thinking. Hardware Unboxed uses 2 step encoding, so they can't use Intel Quick Sync. I never got a reply from Gamers Nexus. Puget Systems does extensive testing with various programs including Premier Pro, but AMD would only send them a 3600, so they are having to purchase the other chips as the
  12. Combo back in stock! The RX 580 is a nice step up from the RX 570. I would get this one for $160. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/TTfmP6/msi-radeon-rx-580-8gb-armor-oc-video-card-rx-580-armor-8g-oc
  13. What about the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite which barely fits into your price range? https://pcpartpicker.com/product/nHxbt6/gigabyte-x570-aorus-elite-atx-am4-motherboard-x570-aorus-elite
