Description

Built to tackle 4K video processing in Adobe Premier and After Effects and to power through some high megapixel raw photo editing. The m.2 hosts the operating system and software. The 840 SSD's I had lying around, they only host the Lightroom / Premier catalog and thumbnail files and are in a RAID 0. The 4x4TB HDDs are in a RAID 1+0 configuration to store all my photos and video footage.

Nice build, i suppose the programs you use are CPU and RAM based?

Thanks, I'm glad you like it. 90% of the workload on this thing will be Adobe Premier and Lightroom

The more I see that motherboard the more I like it. The build is awesome btw! +1

Hows that monitor? A Store near me is selling them for like $450.

Hello, I was wondering since you built this PC a while ago how is your experience with Adobe Illustrator and/or Photoshop? I'm having problem with my NVIDIA GTX 970 and Adobe CC 2015.5 with slow downs and crashes. I am wondering if people with different cards have a better result. Thanks!

What made you choose that 1060 over all the others?

Cost relative to performance. There's hundreds of dollars difference between the 1060, 1070, and 1080 and real world testing in the programs I use show little difference. https://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/Adobe-Premiere-Pro-CC-2015-3-Pascal-GPU-Performance-840/

Great workstation you got there! +1

One question, is the ASUS logo on the GPU actually blue? Till now I thought that it could only light up in white...

Those pics look awful with the shadows and go for a 1080 for 4K like everyone else says.

curious as to why you would choose a 1060 and 64 gb of ram

The PC is for rendering so the 1060 is enough and the 64GB ram is for faster rendering.

There's hundreds of dollars difference between the 1060, 1070, and 1080 and real world testing in the programs I use show little difference. RAM is a huge factor in video rendering so it was a good trade off.

so... why did you call it a 4k workstation if you cant run a 4k monitor with it?

I am running a 4k monitor?? It's on the darn part list for gosh sake.

so you spend 2k on a workstation, and get a 1060? wtf dude you can get a 980, (which is 4* better) for the same price! Also, how can you say this is a 4k build with a 1060?!

4* better? Not sure I'm tracking what real world data you have to support that claim.

Also the cheapest 980 I'm currently seeing on Newegg is starting at $500, whereas I paid $250 for the 1060.

Bro I'm taking eBay and craigslist, where I'm seeing 200 for a 980ti because it's not "the best." But, I guarantee you, If you fish around on eBay and craigslist, you can at least reduce the price of your pc by 1/4, for the same quality parts.

Also, the 4* was an estimate.
