Description

This build is a replacement for the first recording computer I built several years ago. It just was not keeping up anymore.

The Crucial SSD, WD spinner, LG optical drive and video card came over from the old recording rig.

The case was a joy to work with.

Everything is running well. I have the processor running stable at 5Ghz. RAM at 3200 CAS14.

Mainly used for multi-track recording & mixing. Also do occasional light video editing and transcoding.

Why do you need a 9900K for audio recording?

Audio production rigs are generally very demanding on CPU bound conditions. The more cores the better (incl. HT). The 9900K in more intense workflows passes as an adequately decent performer as enterprise-level chips hosting a much higher core counts will deliver faster. Either way, the 9900K is an excellent choice for it's multi-threaded HT throughput + superior single-core performance

I need to throw the most horsepower I can at it to ensure that I can record multiple tracks simultaneously at the lowest possible latency without dropouts. I do a little video editing too and that is all pure processing power. When I do these occasional rebuilds, I try to build at or near the top of the current offerings, within, what I consider, reasonable money. This will hopefully ensure I get a long life out of it.

Yeah ok maybe slightly demanding, on an I3. He’s got more cpu horsepower than the first couple shuttles that went to the moon. Not to mention the SSD’s... I’m jealous. Definitely a sharp build!

As Scurn mentioned, this rig is not for gaming. I had to save dough somewhere so I reused the GPU I had in my old recording rig. Does what I need it to do.
