Wow, $176!

Take my money!

But seriously, you could get close to the $300 for your board + CPU I imagine so that covers the cost of the motherboard pretty well. thumb.gif

When it comes to X79 boards, Asus really is the best of the bunch. I have avoided Haswell as the short time I did have it I was simply disappointed, it left me only a little more impressed than the 8350 (which I already knew going in would be a, well, "lackluster" experience to be polite).
For Z77, though, Gigabyte was the top of the pile, I am honestly 110pct pleased with the GA-Z77X-UP7 I've had since its debut, it's a significantly better board than the Maximus 5 series.

I actually have similar needs from my PC's as you... I do professional audio production (from beginning to end; recording, editing, mixing, mastering, producing, etc) and have a full studio, I dabble with pretending to know how to edit video and photos (lol), I game (sometimes 20hrs a week, sometimes 0), and I am CONSTANTLY upgrading/changing my home "PC-sphere" (from my workhorses to power servers and file servers to HTPC's to NAS/DAS and so on; I am very very fortunate, my father's the CFO of a F500 company and I get a LOT of mid-high to absolutely top of the top equipment that's 9-18mo old for pennies, basically paying the cost they'd pay for electronic recycling... 8, 10, 12 core Xeons, full racks filled with blade servers, fiber channel equipment, I even recently gota ffew boxes with no joke Nvidia Tesla K20's/K40's and Quaddro K4000/K5000's! And hundreds of drives/gigs of memory). I usually sell enough to break even, use the parts I want, and then I donate the rest to low income area schools, non profits, etc, because I'd feel pretty scummy making a profit when I can freely give to those who are in need).

The X79 is my go to for my music work. I usually record using a multiple mic setup, up to 6 direct and 2-6 spatial mics, each rrecording at up to 48bit/384khz, as editing comes out much better when working with uncompressed very high resolution recordings that are then downsampled to 16-24bit/44.1-48-96khz.
Needless to say, that's a LOT of data streaming in! It's not quite enough to task 4 12C/24T Xeons, but it is smooth with the 3930K but struggles a bit on the3770K.

The PCI-E lanes come in handy because:
1-2 GPU = 16/24-32 lanes
Discrete Audio = 1 lane
Hardware NIC (2x10Gb or 40Gb) = 4-8 lanes
Hardware RAID Card = 8 lanes

If you are even semi serious about your audio work, I strongly advocate hardware RAID. I am using an Areca 1882xi-24i with 4gigs (waiting for the 1883xi), and as a big believer in the myriad benefits of storage subsystem parallelism as well as redundancy (and a need for speed), it's the only realssolution.
I have some DC S3700 800GB in RAID0 that I use as "write cache drives" for parity arrays primarily (1GB/s is so much better than, well, less).
Up to 8x 600GB 2.5" SAS 15KRPM I use as scratch drives in RAID0.
Currently a local 9x4TB WD RE RAID6E array that's the primary storage for all my in progress and recently finished projects.
Another 8x3TB WD Red RAID6 I use for media.
4x WD10EZEX 1TB RAID10 for general stuff.
3x 500GB WD VR in RAID0 for quick no fuss
830 256GB OS
M5P-Xtreme 512GB programs drive
840Pro 512GB misc drive

And I have another pair of DC S3700 on the way because they're simply the pinnacle of the modern SSD.


I have LOTS of different kits of RAM from benching, and while my 4x4GB Ripjaws Z 2133 9-11-10 kit is my day to day stuff, if I'm recording more than one person, I usually swap out for 4x8GB DDR3-2400 or even 8x8GB DDR3-2133 because the 2 or even 4 fold increase actually does benefit. It's especially nice to have overhead and run a RAMDisk for the temp stuff, such as a quick encode to let the artist hear a vague idea of what they're going to sound like.


Anyway, justmy aadvice, thoughts, and ramblings, from having done this a little while.

Good luck!

Wow man thats some pretty stellar advice... most of that is just out of my price range I can still run up to school and use there studio and professional grade equipment I really need something to knock out the smaller projects with ease. and I feel like 16gb of ram and the 4930k could more than power through most of my work. I will say I've been stuck on 8gb of ram for awhile and it's annoying how easy it is to use it all up once you have protools and the like running. I'm still very much small time but getting more and more involved in stuff. Plus for the love of god who wouldn't want a 4930k for 200 bucks shipped?!

i'll probably end up giving it to my little brother for his birthday.. I've been trying to win him over to pc gaming and the motherboard in his in need of replacement so boom! new board and cpu upgrade. haha his doesn't have working usb ports right now...

Oh 16 gigs is definitely enough in the majority of (audio production) situations, I was just giving you a real world example of how audio workk can benefit from larger memory capacity, although as described, it's a pretty specific/demanding workload.
The 4930K has, on average, a decently stronger IMC than the typical 3930K, and while my own curiosity tests about memory speed and the benefits, were centered around game performance, and not on more ahem productive endeavors, I did track multiple systems including my IVB rig and a number of others as they were tested with speeds ranging from 1333 6-7-6 to as high and tight as the given memory controller would allow (the highest was my 3770K, pushed 2x4GB Trident X 2666C10 to 2918 10-12-14, while the 8350+CH5FZ I bought to be able to say I definitely don't have any care for the FX chips, I picked the best chip of a dozen binned and it was barely able to push the memory better than my P2 X4 960T/1100T chips, and even then the bench results were dismal, but I dunno...)...
The X79 chips I've had have all had their sweet spots. My 3930K peaks around 2550 9-12-10, my former 3970X around 2388 9-9-12, and the 4930K I briefly owned would push 2800 10-13-11 (for benching, a wee bit high voltage for 24/7 with those timings). My SNB-E chips for example universally performed best with 2133 9-11-9-25 1T, it is the point of exponentially diminishing returns or rather where the lack of returns begins (good scaling thru 2200ish, poor after). I have way less experience with IVB-E than I do either SNB-E or vanilla IVB, but it appears that (in my limited data set), it correlates extremely closely to IVB... That is, the best performance per moneys comes at somewhere between 2400 and 2550 with the tightest timings you can manage; this is why I highly recommend the G.Skill Trident X 2400 9-11-11 or 2666 10-12-12 kits (and explicitly those kits, not the 2400 10-12-12 or 2666 11-13-13),and it's becauseI hhave a number of each and the 2400C9 will clock to 2600 while the 2666 will tighten up at 2400, the 2666 kits just have that extra frequency guaranteed (although of the I think14 kits iof 2400C9, none have failed to reach 2600 10-12-12 and all but one reached 2700).
I have built a lot of computers since I first got into it in 2003 (FX-51, Asus SK8V, 2GB XMS3200RE DDR400 2.5-3-2, ATI X800XT-PE), and the only memory company I recommend without hesitation, and which I can't speak a bad word of, is G.Skill. Corsair is just a joke anymore, charging 2x as much or more for the same and sometimes worse memory, and anything short of their most expensive kits are binned to the edge of the IC's life.

Personally, I 100 percent recommend:
G.Skill Ripjaws Z 2133 9-11-10 and 2400 9-12-10 4x4GB
G.Skill Trident X 2400 9-11-11 and 2600/2666 10-12-12

yeah I want some of those trident x's if the egg ever gets the 2400 cas 9 flavor back in stock, is there and reason specifically not to get the 2400 cas 10 trdent x's other than it is lower performance of course?
post #16 of 19
Every set I've seen is single sided rather than double sided, and the C10 are MFR while the C9 (at least all mine) are top tier Samsung IC's. The MFR clock high but the performance doesn't reflect the speed IME.

The 2400 C10 aren't bad, but the C9 are justso mmuch better...

You could get the 2666 C10, last kit I bought (2mo ago) was double sided HYK0...

The 2400 C10 aren't bad, but the C9 are justso mmuch better...

You could get the 2666 C10, last kit I bought (2mo ago) was double sided HYK0...
ahhh I see.... but the 2666 kit is sooo much more expensive it's stupidly annoying how this game works

I got my 4930k from Intels last Winter Sale, It all came out to about $225 in total. I upgraded from a 2600k, and damn does the 4930k render my projects on the fly. Honestly for the price of the CPU it's a no brainer.

Plus who knows you might have access to Intels Sales anymore next time. wink.gif
