    Trying to make a beast 4k workstation -budget ($5000) - switching from Mac.


      Originally was going to go with a x99 mobo platform but learned that they are on their way out. With that I was going to go for the i-7 6900k off of people's recommendations (puget), but now I'm thinking to switch to the x299 platform despite the bad press. I would probably go with the i-9 7900k since it's the proper entry cpu to the system. Are the heating issues as bad as people say?


      Here's my intended setup - please help me in deciding components.




      Like I stated in the title I'm switching from the OSX because I need a proper editing station for the right cost.
