:) I have to say though I watched the video to exercise my 4k60 capable ultrabook - but I didn't see any Photoshop comparisons. the Intel just about held its own when overclocked to 4.5GHz

 

 

 

 

So right now I think I have been convinced to go back to Threadripper, and if I am doing that, it will probably be with the 1950X.  The much cooling will be a worry removed, and I do like that MSI X399 Pro Gaming MB.  I use eight USB externals for back up and non essential files, and the MSI board has a ton of USB3 sockets on the back panel, and enough spare MB headers to bring at least two more to a spare PCIe outlet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did you consider the new 8th Gen 6 Core 8700K, its available very soon, maybe even tommorow, 95w vs 180w of the AMD, way better value vs preformance than the AMD.

Surely the hexa core has got nothing on the 10 or 16 core surely. I know the clock speeds are higher, but for anything more than 6 cores utilized to max the other 2 will smoke it.

Just in case this thread gets locked, the components have been ordered, and I am told there might be a delay with some of them, but two to three weeks should hopefully see it done.  We had to change the parts list a wee bit because of availability, so the build now consists of.

 

 

 

7900X

 

ASRock Fatal1ty Pro X299 i9

 

64Gb G-Skill Trident Z 3600

 

Cooler Master Cosmos II Ultra Tower

 

512Gb Samsung 960PRO (two off)

 

Cooler Master Liquid Pro 280

 

EVGA 1200W P2

 

The cooler was originally a 280mm Corsair if my memory is right, and the PSU was a Cooler Master 1000W Gold.  We had to go to EVGA 1200W Platinum because of availability.  They originally offered me a 1000W EVGA PSU, but it comes in the small form factor, which means the fan is flat out and the sound level is high.

 

It will also have the GTX970 from my current system, along with Samsung 256Gb PRO, and 1000Gb EVO SSDs.  Plus eight USB3 external and four HDD internal drives totaling about 32Tb.  Video projects take a long time to put together, and the thought of losing your data is too scary not to have two levels of back up.  And I don't even use 4K!   I think I read that Peter Jackson had 30 4K RED Epic cameras when he shot The Hobbit, so goodness knows what sort of storage he would have needed!

 

Yep, here you go
