Video Editing PC Parts (Advise and Possible Deals), Selected Parts Are Compatible with Each Other?

Hi there, I am a nursing student but very fond of technology, I bought 4 PCs from last eBay deals (OptiPlex models) which are fantastic for their price, however, I want to try and make a pc on my own. I won’t be necessarily playing game as I have Xbox one X. I want this pc for adobe premiere and other programmes, fast file transfer (3.2 2nd gen) etc. Thank you, everyone. Ozbargain is really a great part of the Australian community. ( My Budget was $ 2,000 but its gonna be 3K plus now )

Parts I bought are are,
1. CPU: Intel Core i7 8700K Processor 12MB 3.7 GHz LGA 1151 6 Core 12 Thread Desktop CPU = 478 (Futu Online)
2. PSU: EVGA Supernova P2 650 Modular 650W 80 Plus Platinum Certified Power Supply = 156 (Futu online)
3. Case: NZXT S340 Mid Tower Computer Case, Glossy Black (CA-S340W-B1) =150.10 (PLE computes)
4. AIO: NZXT Kraken X62 280MM AIO Liquid Cooler with AM4 Bracket = 227.20 (PC Bytes)
5. RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB 2X8GB DDR4 3000MHz C16 Gaming Desktop Memory RAM Kit = 263.20 (PC Bytes)
6. SSD: KingstonA400 120GB 2.5" SATA 7mm = 50.17 (Futu online)
7. SSD: 500GB Samsung 850 EVO M.2 (2280) SATA SSD = 167.10 (Computer alliance)
8. Motherboard: ASUS ROG MAXIMUS X HERO ATX Motherboard Intel Z370 LGA1151 DDR4 M.2 Type-C RGB= 399.20 (PC Bytes)
9. Graphics Card: 1080 ti (waiting for a deal around $ 1000) =

Total= 1900 + 1000 = $ 2900

    1. AIO: NZXT Kraken X62 280MM AIO Liquid Cooler with AM4 Bracket

    AM4 is an AMD socket, you need a cooler that fits your LGA 1151 socket on your motherboard, the coolers will say what socket(s) they are suitable for.

    •  

      The NZXT Kraken X62 is compatible with LGA 1151, the name of the product can get confusing, but they're basically advertising that they now also include an AM4 Bracket.

    I recommend checking out this. It will assist in checking compatibility for you when you configure a custom build.

    I would suggest SSD EVO 860/870 Samsung m.2, otherwise the storage can be a bottleneck.

    •  

      I'd personally not settle for last gen and get the Samsung 970 Evo

    •  

      I have samsung 850 evo with m.2 sata, do you think it will fit in the motherboard? I also have two 120 gb ssd which I am sure will fit.

      Yes definitely get a decent sized SSD (you have two m.2 slots on that mobo), preferably around a 500gb for system drive that can be used for cache files and then a 1tb for the video files.

      Also 16gb of ram would be minimum 32gb would be better but ram is so expensive right now.

      If you want to save money you just get a Intel Core i7 8700 do you really need the K model?

      i also think the Kraken x62 is overkill something like a Deepcool Gamer Storm Captain 240EX would be more than sufficient (in reality a noctua nh-u12s air cooler is perfectly fine if you live without the waterpump coolness factor lol and is a lot cheaper and highly rated)

        I bought Samsung evo 850 m.2 in sata version during last computer alliance deal. between 8700 and 8700 k is $50 diff, just for peace of mind 8700k. is there any problem as a new guy with 8700 k? I saw in youtube video, Kraken x62 looked so cool!

        • +1 vote

          i just built a new PC and after reviewing all the waterpumps i went with the Deepcool Gamer Storm Captain 240EX RGB ($129 PC Case Gear) it comes with a additional RGB strip and RGB control (although you Mobo probably can control the cooler and rgb strip) and runs silent (i ran 100% cpu stress tests and it only got in the high 60s deg c) and stays cool.

          I went for the 8700 but if the K isn't much more then why not, it is clocked faster so all bonus.

          @BigglesKDH:
          Really appreciate your advice. I bought psu, ssd, case, motherboard. looking best prices for aio, gpu and cpu.

        •  

          @MorningStar: pretty sure they are both the same model

    Might be thinking a bit outside the box, and probably not for the untrained but for the price of this system (at least $3k) you could pick up a few dozen second hand blade servers and put together a video render cluster that would be hundreds of times faster than this one machine.

    Also keep in mind if you are going to put mechanical HDDs in the NZXT S340 Mid Tower Computer Case, it has terrible drive placement with no option to allow a fan to cool them (i'm pretty sure).

    •  

      just bought NZXT S340 elite which they say is an updated version of NZXT S340. What would you say?

    •  

      I have smaung evo 850 m.2 sata and few othe 120 gb sdd. when editing i will be using WD 3tb hdd. What would you say? thanks BigglesKDS!

      • +1 vote

        They are nice cases, as long as you are not stacking lots of mechanical HDDs (i think you can fit 3 in the bay), personally i have always made sure i have had fans on my HDDs to make sure they don't get too hot but if you only have one you should be fine.

        There is plenty of mounting points of SSDs and they don't run hot so no worries there, i would recommend looking where you can save money to get a 1tb SSD as HDDs are a real bottleneck for video work, in the past i had always run HDD drives in a raid for video (all SSD now though) even a Crucial MX500 1tb ($349ish) is way faster than HDD or HDDs in a raid.

          from Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB 2X8GB DDR4 2400, 3000, 3200 which one would you suggest based on my selected parts.

        • +1 vote

          @MorningStar: From what I've read, real world performance difference between ram is quite small (1 or 2 fps in gaming etc), it more comes down to the price you want to pay, if the price difference between them is small then get the fastest.
          just plan ahead to be able to purchase matching ram when the price comes back down to get up to 32gb.

          @BigglesKDH:
          last time on ozbargain post they were talking about overclocking of ram , CPU and they said 3000 would complement 8700k. I don't have any knowledge about overclocking but since I'm willing to spend 2k plus, let's get the best I can afford. do you think there is a significant difference between 2400 and 3000?

        •  

          @MorningStar: i haven't had any experience overclocking, stock is normally fine for me.
          Once you get into overclocking you need to do a bit of research into specific brands latency/timings etc of ram and then how they well they work with specific mother boards etc, it's a bit of a minefield getting a stable overclock that is a lot better than stock and requires a lot of research and trial and error (not all components are equal from the factory some a better than others - silicon lottery lol)

          You should be able to do mild overclocking with the built in bios/windows apps etc and get it stable without much effort.
