Good find, P and V.

Wonderful performance measuring, at least for me as it was speaking my language--and the author used my favorite proxy for disk bottlenecks--queue depth. I include a direct reference.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...An91e82byj8s4/

The author astutely noted potential performance degrading file read behavior--hard to know exactly what the app is doing and why, but it is axiomatic that file opens and closes do take some time--in computer scale time. Is the kontakt storage interface designed to be optimal for the ram and disk behaviors of older systems and never got re-written. Its not an engineering type comparison, but since they have not converted their gui to vector based graphics, its not hard to imagine they have not re-written the storage engine either. Perhaps a poster here who is closer to the software can speak to this.

For my usage, any sort of behavior that keeps any of the samples on disk is un-necessary.

The author was careful to flush disk cache, but I think that is at the windows os level, and there is cache within ssd that may impact performance, and I doubt flushing that is exposed to the os.

If nothing else, one good take away is the real world performance improvements of pcie ssd over sata attached ssd. Needless to say spinning plattter is an order of magnitude behind these guys.

From what I recall, m.2 storage is not that much more expensive than sata hosted, and if its 2x more costly, that is a far smaller ratio than the performance benfit.

I wonder how halion is along these lines? They did recently migrate to vector graphics...

Hi

Long time lurker first time poster.

I am looking to do a new build to replace my ageing intel 965 from 2009, my plan is to build something which will last an equally long life span all being well. The majority of my work is mixing within Reaper working often at 96kHz as lots of my files are taken from live concert recordings.

Currently it feels to me that AMD is the better offering i have been looking at the following spec all comments and suggestions welcome.

1x AMD Ryzen 9 3900X Gen3 12 Core AM4
1x Gigabyte AMD Ryzen X570 AORUS PRO AM4
2x Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO Black 32GB 3200 MHz AMD Ryzen Tuned DDR4
1x Corsair Force MP600 1TB M.2 PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSD - Boot and Files
1x Corsair Force MP600 2 TB M.2 PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSD - Audio Projects
1x Seasonic Focus Plus+ 850 Watt Gold Modular PSU]
1x Noctua AMD NH-D15
1x PowerColor AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB Red Dragon V2 2018
1x Fractal Define R6 Black Midi PC Gaming Case Black

https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/bcXv6R

I have overspeced the PSU so it wil hopefully run silently and the graphics card needs to run 2x 4k Display on Display Port and a 1080P Display on HDMI.

Many Thanks for any help you guys can offer.

What kind of memory do you have and what MHz? Crashes is often due to memory MHz being too high, if you use XMP just go down on the MHz:
Keep your XMP profile like this:


Then turn down the MHz if you are using for example 3200 MHz go down to for example 3000 MHz, like this:


You don't have to go down 200MHz like I did here. Just go one down to the nearest MHz, if that does not work go down to the next MHz and so on.
That being said you should also check the temp on your CPU with Core Temp when using 5 GHz. Could of course be a CPU fan not cooling enough issue.

Thank you so much for the detailed response. Pretty the memory was set too low when the ScanAudio 5ghz prebuilt motherboard and CPU etc arrived. I just put the ram back to where it should be...hmm .... I will certainly try lowering the memory tonight.

Makes sense, I read that this generation of cpu had most of the migitation implemented at the hardware level, so would be faster.

@ Pictus , thanks. Interesting. None of my cores are parked. With the computer just hosting a remote vpn for work, its running with 7/8 cores at 4900 meg and one at 800 meg. The slow one keeps switching around. The cpu is using at most 7 watts and the cpu temps peaking at 46 celsius. It recognizes that I am using windows performance setting. I know in the past, power management made my computer gap even when playing audio mp3s. Many of the settings I don't know what they do, but these modern cpus have a lot of settings... Not sure why I would do this, but I imagine I could park 2-4 of the cpus with no noticeable performance impact in day to day use. Maybe let them run free during daw usage... Well, more things to google and learn. And to my knowledge, no overclocking is being done--unless the bios is just doing it automatically--I never set it to oc. With the cpu drawing between 5 and 10 watts, hard to see a reason to park to save energy.

Just wondered people's thoughts on this, or whether any bits I could cut down on/anything that's way too excessive in the build? I know the RAM is a lot, thought I'd get the 4x16GB which would give me space to upgrade in the future but equally could just get 4x8GB

I've been told M.2 drives are best for storage, but not sure how much would be needed (I use native instruments so know I need at least 140 GB on one of the SSDs, then would have another just for OS and 3rd basic hard disc for saving projects onto?)

Any help appreciated! Thanks

No need for separate SSD drive, go for one big 2 TB NVMe drive
https://pcpartpicker.com/product/xM9...ive-5ms24aaabc
https://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/88...le/index4.html
The M.2 NVMe drive is very fast you can install all there with no loss of
performance for audio workloads, you can create a small partition in the
big NVMe SSD for the operational system and leave the rest for the other
stuff, it's not fun to create a system image(Macrium Reflect) from a 2 TB
partition filled with data.

A starting point to build a PC, just need to add Motherboard/CPU/cooler.

Hi all,

I'm building a new pc for recording, mostly for use with ableton live 10. My last build ( AMD Fx 8350, MSI 990FXA-GD80) has terrible DPC latency, trying to avoid that mess again! Seems like a lot of people had the same issue involving that CPU for some reason.

Anyway, moving on, here's the parts list I have so far. Any issues?

Intel Core i7-9700K 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor
be quiet! Dark Rock 4 CPU Cooler
Gigabyte Z390 DESIGNARE ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory
EVGA SuperNOVA G3 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply

I have these from my last build, will they suffice?
Samsung SSD 860 EVO 500gb
Western Digital Blue 1tb

Thanks,
Malc

only DARK ROCK PRO 4, DARK ROCK SLIM and DARK ROCK TF support Designare with all memory slots.
Not DARK ROCK 4, DARK ROCK PRO TR4.
Another good option for CPU cooler is: Noctua NH-D15S (not Noctua NH-D15)

Some suggestions:
Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500 GB for system
Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB SSD for libraries
(just clone your stuff over and use your old HD's as backup)
Intel Core i9-9900K not that more expensive than Intel Core i7-9700K

I assume you gonna use your old case since you did not mention it, if not:

Thanks for the help!...I'm thinking about going with the Noctua. Is a dark rock pro 4 worth the extra couple bucks?

And you'd definitely go for i9 to be future proof?

How am I doing on ram?

I'm trying to stay around a $1k usd for parts but I'm already about 100 bucks over that haha. I really just need to be able to get back up and running right now, but also i'd rather invest now than regret not doing so later.

About the case. I was going to go with NZXT N500. Would you say there's an appreciable difference in quality between it and the Fractal?

I've got a Antec VP Series 630 Watt power supply in the last build, it's probably about 6 or 7 years old now. Can I shave some bucks on by using it until I can buy a nice one?

- If Noctua is cheaper go with that. One of the most silent and best fans in the industry.
- i9 is worth the extra money I think. CPU is the most important thing in a music pc build.
- If you can afford 2x16 GB of ram do that. 3200 MHz should be enough.
(Corsair CMK32GX4M2B3200C16 is supported)
- I would go with a case without glass, more silente. Like the Fractal
- As for power supply I would buy a new one, because of noise and stability.
Corsair RM750x should be enough.

As to where to save money I would say memory. You can always buy 2x8GB of the same memory later (then of course you are limited to maximum 32GB of memory). Also you can of course try out your old power supply to save some money.

Thank very much for the guidance. It's much appreciated!

One last thing before I order all the parts tonight...I added a HP EX950 2 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive (the one recommended by Pictus a few posts back)

PCPartPicker shows this comparability warning:
"Note:The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports. When the M.2 slot is populated, two SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports are disabled."

Is this an issue? Would there be any reason to choose samsung 970 evo over the hp? Would it be better to have one big nvme or separate drives for library and system?

Also, I'm just figuring out that CPU cooler will be so big that it will pretty much stop the ram from being seen in the motherboard. No sense in getting RGB then, right? Just a sanity check

Thanks again!

Look in the attachment what SATA ports not working when using M2 SSD. This has nothing to do with the brand it is the M2 that needs the bandwidth.

Yes CPU cooler is big but be sure to buy Noctua NH-D15S, and no need for memory with RGB light.

So, just to be clear, if I install the m2 I'll still have 4 other available sata ports?

Also regarding the brand- I meant was there any reason to choose samsung 970 evo over the hp? The hp is quite a bit cheaper, but I wanted to make sure I wasn't reading the specs wrong and not getting as good of a deal. I'm sorry, I'm ignorant and its confusing

Also, you suggested:
Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500 GB for system
Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB SSD for libraries

Pictus mentioned the HP earlier in the thread and said "No need for separate SSD drive, go for one big 2 TB NVMe drive".

I guess I'm just confused as to the difference.

gotcha on the Nh-d15s though .

On my asus z390 prime a, there are notes in the manual that there may be some data path sharing (my words not theirs) between certain devices and m.2. Best to read the details if you want to try and optimize. At the time I wired my pc, I made note of that and kept a couple of the sata ports open. Moral of the story, study the manual and try to understand what it is saying--if you want the nth degree of performance. If you don't, probably will work great anyway.

I'm not 100% sure but if you use SSD NVMe you still gonna have all 6 SATA ports (only occupies lanes if you use M2 SATA SSD in M2M port or SATA SSD in pcie slot)
As to brand and size I guess that is a question of what you prefer. Having all on a 2 TB NVMe drive is more practical when you gonna make a backup with a clone or image. Some prefer having only OS and software on C and other stuff like libraries on a seperate disk. If you have them separate you don't "lose" everything if something happens to your OS or your hard drive. That being said if I had done a build today I would have probably put all on one big SSD NVMe. Done regular images and clones

me here again with my Thunderbolt quetion:
so I bought GC-Titan Ridge TB3 card for my computer with gigabyte z390 gaming X motherboard.
but thunderbolt doesn't show up in device manager neither in bios.
I installed the driver from Gigabyte website but it doesnt help since device manager cant even detect new hardware.

when I check plu in devices info in BIOS fro PCIe slots, all show "N/A"

what settings should I chose in BIOS ?
currently it's like this:

Discrete TB Support: Enabled
TBT Vt-d base security: Disabled
TB boot support: disabled
wake from TB devices: enabled
security level: user authorization

Edit:
Try this first:

go in here:

Enable this:


If that does not work....
A couple of questions:
What version of Windows do you have? There is a driver specific for 1903 version.
Have you updated to the latest bios?
Have you tried to connect the audio interface to the thunderbolt port. It must be connected for thunderbolt to show in device manager.

Also one more important thing:
GC-Titan Ridge TB3 is only supported by PCH PCIe x4

Also be sure your header cable is connected to both card and motherboard
