I was a regular on here back in the early 2000's. Since then priorities changed with family etc. I am back building a new video editing rig for my business. I have some parts already, but others I am up in the air on.
The list as follows
Thermaltake Xaser III steel case. This thing weighs 50lb plus pounds and its a tank. I think I am going to give it a custom paint job and change all the red accents to bright green and paint the inside green too. I am going to install nocturna fans in this for slient or near silent use.
I am going with a dual xeon X99 board with dual 2620 V3 cpus. I am not sure on a cooling solution for these as they are close together on my board. I will update when I figure out what I am going with. I am thinking nocturna for slient useage.
I am installing 8x32 gb ram in the board for a total of 256gb of ram. This will most likely be Kingston ram as I like the brand and has been very reliable for me.
Next up is the video card. it's going to be at least a 12gb video card so I can push it a bit. Any suggestions on something like this in a semi affordable version would be appreciated.
I will be running software off 2 NVME kingston A2000 256gb drives in Raid 0. There will be 3 kingston a400 512gb drives for scratch/temp/swap drives one each. I will be using 2 14tb HDD in raid 1 for storage most likely seagate drives.
I will be powering this with a 1320w enermax revo PSU to make sure I have enough power when pushing the system. This will be driving 2 monitors, my 24" dell touchscreen and a dell 24" 4K next to it.
My videos for now will be shot using 4k from a panasonic FZ2500, Sony RX10 iv, Panasonic FZ300 and my iphone 11. Most footage will be from the two panasonic cameras however. They will live in their video rigs with lighting, mics and stabilization setups. For photo I will be using my RX10 iv, Fujifilm X-S1, X10 and some other cameras.
I will put up some photos as I go along. The first thing is to get the case painted and ready to go.
