Description

The machine is intended primarily for Adobe Lightroom use. The picture collection is currently about 2.5+ TB. Mostly Nikon NEF file processing.

Two 2TB M.2 SSDs + 1 2TB SATA SSD are part of a Windows 10 Storage space in simple no resiliency mode. The Lightroom catalog is on a 1TB M.2 drive (boot drive). This combination seems to help performance a lot, at least compared to the previous setup we had.

So far, the machine is amazing. A major step forward on the i7-7700k that was used for this purpose before. About half the parts were from the old build.

Also, why are the cables all wrapped around the AIO tubes, I just don't see why anyone would do that

Nice build. All SSD must be so fast. But please take 20 mins for cables.

Fast yes, but I don't think you can rewrite on SSDs forever. That is why I think one old school hard drive is beneficial, I could be wrong in this.

You can’t rewrite on HDDs either, all forms of storage have a limit to how many times they can be rewritten.

Obviously, but data degrades on SSDs far faster than HDDs, so I like to use HDDs for long term data storage.

Jeez you could have saved a crud ton on those 850 evos! An MX500 2tb is about 280 dollars which is nearly a third of what those ssds cost!

You so realize that the 850 evo is obsolete and has been replaced by the 860 evo, right? the MX500 ties with the 860 evo and certainly the 850. There is 0 sense in spending 700 bucks for an 850 evo.

3200mhz and 3600mhz ram speeds. Why combine them? Dunno.

a 9900k with a 2060? i mean, spend your money how you want but you could've saved a hefty buck or two

also cable management

What's wrong with this combo? Priorities for a workstation are not the same as a gaming rig. I'm doing the same beacuse the i9 9900k offers a big enough improvement over the i7 8700k in Creative Cloud to be worth the spend. However, the jump to a 2080 doesn't at this point.

i9 and 2060. Bit of an interesting combo but looks real good

Is this sarcasm? Wtf does a photo editing PC need 2080ti's in SLI for?

^^^^ he is kinda using a M.2 drive correctly, the write speeds make a noticeable difference is photo editing, HE also said that half the parts are from an old build, I've seen someone else have 2 Samsung SSDs because of a buy one get one free bundle

Indeed. This was my goal with the M.2 drives. And the performance I'm seeing is having that play out!
