    Problem is with sata, and media with usb 3/3.1 drives.

    Can't really try a different GPU right now.

    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    I went back to my intel and im seeing similar issues :/ so its probably something else (im thinking media or gpu w/ 3 4k displays)

    Intel 4790k cpu /w asus z97 gryphon mobo w/32gb ram

    Media Composer 8.8.3

    Windows 10 home creators edition - clean install with minimal apps on system

    gtx 980ti

    3x 4k monitors

    OS is on ssd, media on 4tb WD Black Drive

    And im getting slightly choppy playback with everything rendered (gpu disabled for rendering)..

    Im thinking that maybe it has to do with the media on my timeline.  I'm mixing all sorts of dimensions, framerates, codecs, in this 1080 23.98 project. NO AMA Footage in timeline.

    OR My computer can't handle 3 4k monitors with fullscreen playback on 1 of them.

    2 of the 4k monitors are for media composer GUI, 1 is for full screen playback.

    I am willing to upgrade to a 1080ti card.  Kaby lake 7700k, whatever it takes to improve performance.

    Sorry for being annoying, I appreciate your input, suggestions, etc.  Thank You

    We'll, run 2 monitors at 1080p for a day, see what happens.

    isolating and fixing problems, rather than buying new stuff is in the long run cheaper as well as more efficient ;)

    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    Well I gave my Ryzen 1700 a lot of chances.  Rendering performance was good but overall playback of video was not good.

    So I built a x299 7820x ($600 for cpu) computer with an asus x299-e ($350) motherboard. Used my existing 32gb ddr4 and added 32gb more ($260) to take advantage of quad channel.

    This thing rocks!  Once that 18 core cpu comes out, I may have to buy it if there are financing options with affirm somewhere.

    Although, one realizes that when you start to work on high core computers, that the drives become the bottleneck.

    Something I didnt realize until some fine people on this board told me that.  Thank you for your input!

    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    My best setup now:  7820x the latest version of MC, 1080ti, AND my blackmagic intensity 4k.  Latest non qualified blackmagic desktop and nvidia drivers.

    Im done working software only mode w/ triple monitors (1 as fullscreen playback).

    Adding the Intensity and using 2 windows displays just makes everything perfect.  This is really the traditional setup and one I used for years but I thought hardware was just more sluggish.  Now everything seems super quick though.

    I also wanted to show a little addition to my tower that I like.  I can swap 3 3.5 drives very easily and 2 2.5 drives (great to copy media for laptop editing).  Before I'd use usb to sata 2.5 and 3.5 but this uses less cables.  Ignore the ugly missing faceplate for the 2.5 rack.

    The 3.5 hotswap is great because I can just leave old project media in a drawer and load it up quickly (trayless setup) if I need to bring up the project.  Also, I only put in the drives that I need so it keeps things cooler.

    I love having my os on a m.2 drive, makes everything so much cleaner.

    Re: Benchmarks for those who build their own computers.

    Hi,  Thanks so much for all the info you have posted - really useful stuff!

    I was going to try the Ryzan route but after reading went for the i7.

    Once its built I will report back and how well my old Nitris DX responds...
