Update: December 2019 - I have moved from the first-gen Threadripper CPU to an AMD Ryzen 3950x with the Gigabyte Aorus X570 Xtreme board.
Update: July 2019 - I have replaced my GTX 1080 GPU with a RTX 2080ti GPU.
This is my project studio/gaming rig. I do everything on this build from high-end gaming to video editing and music production. I am always swapping out parts and adding on to this setup, so a lot will change over time. Anytime I make changes, I will try and update this completed build list.
I have recorded professional music demos for over 10 years, and one of the latest comes from my own metal band called The Anxiety Effect. Our latest 2 single releases were recorded on this system and can be heard for free at www.theanxietyeffect.net, Spotify, and they can also be purchased on all major music sites (iTunes, Google Play Music, Amazon, ect).
I render and edit video with Vegas Pro and Handbrake, and the footage I use mostly is shot on a Sony NX100 video camera that records in full HD. 60fps @50mbps. I also produce Blu Ray and DVD discs. Most of these are for people who want to transfer their home videos to a digital disc format.
When I'm not editing video or recording music, I do some gaming.
I have been using the AMD Threadripper 1950x CPU since August of 2017. I am running it on the Gigabyte Aorus X399 Gaming 7 motherboard. Temperatures stay nice and cool with NZXT Kraken x62 on the CPU. Staying between 29c and 31c on idle, and 63c to 65c at full load (video rendering pushes high loads for multiple hours at a time).
Thanks for looking at my build.
