Hey all. Second custom build but first time using parts picker, awesome site! Looking for some feedback on my parts list. A few questions I would like help with. Overall objective is to edit 4K on adobe premier pro for my drone and go pro. From what I’ve read RAM is important but CPU clock /core is king. GPU seems like after thought since it doesn’t really get used by adobe but for a few tasks. My GPU really just has to stream video to the 4K tv screen at 60hz. I’m fine waiting for render, just want to be able to edit or view clips without choppiness or waiting just to play raw 4K. Budget was around $1000, you can see I left space for future growth.
Questions: Will my fan selection conflict with RAM ports for elected RAM or my case ? Is there a way to use the dark rock fan or do I really gain anything for the money? I’m not really thinking about overclocking maybe if I did to 4.0 MHz (spec overclock). My concern is room for growth.... say I want to over clock later, could i swap the Heat sink for a new model after the thermal paste is applied without damaging it ?
From what I’ve read Ryzen 1800 is about as good as he 2700 (within 10% performance) but the price is 30% difference. Any compelling reason to go with 2700 over 1800?
Will 16 GB of ram be enough to run just premier pro editing ? I plan to add more at a later date.
Biggest concern is the video card. Is the 1060 good enough for what I want to do? Will it stream 4K video comfortably? I’m not using it for gaming so it’s not super intensive, just playing back 4 K footage.
Another small graphics card conundrum... I didn’t use and AMD Radeon cars on an AMD chip. Seems that the only thing I lose out on is sli/crossfire capes if I was using 2x GPUs. Is this correct? A little bias but sounds like Nvidia May be more optimized for premier Pro (yes I know about Radeon open CL for premier). Thoughts ?
Any other feedback for my parts list or conflicts I have not thought thru?
