Hi first time posting here.
AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4ghz
ATI HD 5570 1024
12GB Corsair memory
Win 7 64 Ultimate
It never use to happen when I burned dvds with Encore but now every DVD I build a project. During Transcoding the PC get loud and sometimes annoyingly loud I cant do any other work till its done.
Any ideas or do I have to live with it? Would help if i can get it quieter as this is my business.
Thanks in advance.
How are you getting your Premiere Pro timeline to Encore... dynamic link or do you export a file from PPro?
Screen shots of your edit/export/author file settings work well to SHOW people what you are doing
Thanks, will have a look at that in a bit. To save time, I already done this 7 DVD set so its just swapping discs and opening a project to burn.
From what your saying its more the programs etc, I thought it was more to do with the hardware which would be a huge relief if it isnt.
I was assuming John was not understanding your question. Some program issues can challenge your computer, but when I think "loud," I think it should never be "that" loud. Since the loud is just when your processing, I assume it is drive related, and I don't think it is good.
I have one retail computer that is "noisy" (almost, but not quite "loud", ha, ha!) when I do certain operations. Worrisome.
It may, of course, be a fan that is not operating all the time or is set to variable speeds.
OK... if you are talking about your computer being loud, and not the DVD/BluRay you produce having too loud a sound volume, you might want to open your case and CAREFULLY vacuum everything, using a "long bristle" brush attachment to LIGHTLY brush everything to loosen the dust
What you are hearing is "most likely" your CPU fan kicking into high gear... encoding puts a large load on the CPU, and it's heat will rise a LOT, which the BIOS then compensates for by telling the fan to run faster
Do you have a stock fan, or a better aftermarket CPU fan?
** I ** think it is easy to replace a stock fan... but I built my own computer, so I know how everything was put together
I bought http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103057 for my Intel i7 930 CPU - which, of course, will most likely NOT work with your AMD
You just need to check hardware sites (I like Newegg) to find a cooler for your brand/model CPU
A CPU cooler is generally held on with 4 mounting screws... don't forget a good brand of thermal paste to go between the CPU and cooler... and clean the old paste off the CPU before you put the new cooler in place
