Need help on transcoding rig

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
Im trying to build this rig for converting files to dvds all my hardware is fairly new meaning less than 6 months old or less this rig consists of
the fallowing:

AMD PII 1100T x6 @ 3.300 ghz
MSI 880GM-E43
Corsair XMS3 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz (CMX8GX3M2A1600C9)
XFX HD687AZHFC AMD Radeon HD 6870 1GB (using ati drivers and not the xfx cd drivers)
OCZ Agility 3 60 Gb (AGT3-25SAT3-60G)
Seagate Barracuda 1TB (ST310005N1A1AS-RK)
Noctua NH-D14
Corsair CX600 builder Series
Black ASUS 24X SATA DVD Burner (x3 buners)
Syba SATA III PCI-E Controller Card (SY-PEX40040) for ssd to reach sata III speeds and yes i can boot from it with 0 issues ssd benchmark tests do verify speed increses vs onboard sata II

I use xilisoft video converter (app enabled) and xilisoft dvd maker when i use xilisoft dvd maker and check windows task manager and the resource manager i dont really see any activity cpu and ram usage stay low and so does the gpu and i think it take way to long to finish converting an avi file into a dvd iso image so id like to know if theres any way to optimize this machine or if theres any other program that i can use that can take advantage with my hardware im thinking that this program is depending on pagefile very heavily becouse if i disable page file my system blue screens I ran prime 95 on this system before and killed 1 mosfet on an identicle board after researching why i came across some info about how the mosfets cant handle my cpu im very aware of this i will be upgrading to an asus crosshair in about 1 month so i need to make due with what i have now everything is runing stock as far as hardware goes i pretty much need more preformance and need some input.thumb.gif

What sort of bitrate/size are you encoding? I'd almost want to say since your SSD is only 60GB you definitely aren't encoding from it, so I'm wondering- maybe the hard drive is your bottleneck here if everything else is capped at a relatively low usage during the runs.

yes im not using my ssd for encoding but i have tested files directly on the ssd input and output and i didtn see any diffrance i thought it might have been the seagate bottlenecking and that mabe be so but even when i encode on the ssd its take the same amount of time

Well that is truly odd then, sorry I don't really have more input. Have you tried benching the rig to see if it's general performance is what you'd expect?

Haha, naw not Prime95. Something like PCMark, or Geekbench. Though since you're doing video encoding, I'd say try running Cinebench and see if the scores are on par with what's expected from an 1100T.

You can find many posts in the AMD CPU section regaring Cinebench performance.

On a side note, since you are getting a Crosshair board, I'd recommend pairing it with an 8120 if at all possible. Those things kick ass at heavy-thread encoding. thumb.gif

RAM, Windows only accesses the pagefile under certain cirumstances.

Another thing that gets busy during the transcode process is the CPUNB, scaling on Thuban memory controller overclocks is pretty huge in some cases, but again, no OC with those VRM.

CPU, IMC, GPU, RAM and Disk subsystem (R/W transcode data)

EDIT: As a side note, to make full use of the CPU, it has to be able to utilize all 6 threads. Is the Xilisoft transcoder multithreaded?

bigasoft total video converter is multi threaded, you can go into options and change the max threads number and it will encode faster thumb.gif
