Trying to build the fastest PC I can...

I'm re-building my two personal PCs, and it's going to be a multi-part process...
⇨ Sponsor: MSI Vigor GK50 | Buy: | info:
Today, I'm starting by building the fastest PC I can as a main editing rig, with a Threadripper 3970X and an RTX 3090. Things did not go smoothly though...
Edit: many thanks to everyone who pointed out my other big fail in this video -- the fan bracket that would have blocked the HDD cages on the Corsair 5000X is removable, which is shown in multiple reviews. The problems with this build were TOTALLY my fault. I'll discuss in the next video on my personal builds!

    • I was able to find the ryzen 5 4650 on Amazon but for all the parts I got a price tag at 655. The storage I did get a Seagate 2tb for 38. Most of the stuff I am getting is used and some new. It will be my first build let's just see how it goes.

    • Paul gets more real as the video progresses. The truth is, "cable management" is for youtube bros. Real users add stuff all the time. Plug in all the cables! Also, this case sucks. You need something that can handle a lot of drives. This case is for aesthetics, not for work.

    • I was going to jump in here and ask why you didn't just remove the bracket. I get it, though. When you deal with PC's day in and day out, it's easy to sometimes miss what's right in front of you. =)

  • I know this is out of context, but . . . my first PC I bought was a Pentium 3 500Mhz with 10 GB HDD and 64 MB of RAM in 1999 (22 years ago). Now looking at a 10TB HDD in his hand, which is of a 1000 times larger storage capacity, and a processor 267 times faster, a RAM 4500 times bigger I find it kind of funnily hard to believe . . .

  • And again another computer build where the most important step is skipped, testing the hardware and installing Windows to verify the hardware works properly. Would really suck to put it all together and find out something like the motherboard doesn't work wouldn't it? At least it's not a open loop water cooing build. What is it with spinning rust? You are using a graphics card made of unobtainium so a large capacity SSD seems obvious! No it doesn't! Why would you not be using 10G and a NAS for video editing?

  • Didn't see if anyone pointed that out, yet but the 10TB WD0101EFAX is also fine: as far as I know every EFAX model with 8TB or more is CMR and thus also perfectly fine for NAS. The problem is only with the EFAX model with 6TB or less. Here you might want to get an EFRX model instead when using a NAS. So in case anyone here got a 10TB EFAX: You are probably fine :-)

  • Hey man, I am planning to buy a gen4 m.2. However, i currently have a gen 3 m.2 on the first slot of my mobo. Should I install my new m.2 gen 4 to the second slot, clone my gen 3 m.2 to my gen 4 m.2, turn off the pc, swap them so the m.2 gen 4 is on the top slot. And boot from that? Also when do I format the gen 3 m.2? How do you suggest I do this?

  • Guys, the best thing you can do is get a pre-built for now. There are GPUs available on websites that let you completely customize your build. CLX does it for a very competitive price. @t Basically you pay what people are paying for GPUs, except you get an entire computer. This is the best way do it imo... for now.

The only real difference we have is that I install Manjaro Linux instead of Windows. Oh, and most of the time, I forget to turn on the rocker switch on the back of the power supply! That was a great video; thanks for sharing! :D
