I may be wrong but I don't think that motherboard supports that Processor.


Also can I ask what editing software you will be using?

You'll need an LGA 2011 board. After that, it should be smooth sailing thumb.gif

And even though you could lower the RAM speed to 1600, grab a 7970 (unless you are running programs utilizing CUDA and not Stream) and downgrade to a lower-wattage but more efficient power supply, at the end of the day, it's your money. Spend it however you want, as long as the components are compatable.

Yer he is right that motherboard does not support the CPU. You have to get the matching chipset and socket type. That CPU is 2011 socket, So look for a motherboard that supports 2011 chipset. That motherboard is the sandybridge chipset.
But otherwise that computer will be great for what ever you need to do and should perform extremely well in video editing/rendering tasks. Oh Btw what type of video will you be editing?

Looks wicked- wheres the cooler? It would be sweet to see some water cooling an a rig as awsome as this. The 3960x dosnt come with a stock cooler so even if you dont overclock youll need something.

I will be using video editing software like Vegas and after effects and I will be editing videos that I make at home thanks for the replies smile.gif and I will look into the new motherboard
post #8 of 10
nice rig! ^^ drool.gif

your mobo isnt the rite type. you have to use an lga 2011 motherboard.
you could try getting the sabertooth x79.

would rather advice you to get the 7970. or wait for the gtx 600 series to come out instead.
this would be the absolute worst time to buy a 580 :|

Looks good, the only things that I would change would be the i7-3930k to a i7-3820 (plenty of power if your smart and use the mercury playback engine to render video), I would use the $400 saved to get 16gb more ram (you'll go through 16 pretty quick) and one more non-boot ssd as a scratch disk to decrease video rendering time. As for the video card I'd wait a month for the gtx 670 or 680 which actually use pci-e 3.0 and have 2x or 3x of the effective cuda cores that the mercury playback engine (with modded card list) will use to render video.
Cuda is what you should use for rendering, the i7-3820 has plenty of bandwidth and a great quad channel memory controller, and it's really worth it to save yourself some guilt and wait a month or so for nVidia kepler.
Hope this helps,

I would also recommend more than just one internal hard drive for your rig.
Putting one hard drive to deal with the OS, software, media and cache at the same time will cause stress.
You should look to distributing out that system load.
You aren't condemning our system to failure if you don't, but you'll run significantly faster if you do.

This is my config is you're curious:

SSD - OS (for fast boot)
1TB - Software and Video Games
2TB - Media and Cache

As you can see, the stress of video editing is stretched out on different hard drives rather than putting the strain on one.

For more information I would suggest you look at Video2Brain - Optimizing Performance for Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects.
Even though you will be cutting with Vegas, the same principles apply.

Happy cutting!
