This is VERY similar to my own build. It is not built yet but I have done a lot research and strongly believe this is going to be the perfect combination! My only difference was going for the X99 Pro mobo. (Simply for the extra features.)
Recently, however, I have been quite undecided about the GTX 970 as I've heard a lot of mixed opinions about its compatibility with Adobe suite. Though I have still not really found a conclusion - except for that it is not supported for After Effects Ray tracing renderer. It is certainly an awesome card, I just hope there won't be any other issues when video editing.
Yes i read the same thing about the ray tracing renderer, but everything else should work great once you install a certain toolset program to make it work with the 970, can anybody confirm this ?
I found this post which is quite reassuring: https://forums.creativecow.net/thread/3/959855
"I just installed the GTX 970 into my Adobe CC environment.
INCREDIBLE. I created a 4096 sequence, scaled up a 1080 clip to full screen, applied Gaussian blur, Noise, and rotated it on two 3D axes (keyframed), with color correction....
It played back fullscreen, full speed, no dropped frames, and the GPU load never even broke a sweat beyond 19%.
My previous card was a GTX 560 SE. This is not an upgrade, it is a paradigm shift.
Premiere accepted the card after the polite "Enable this unsupported GPU" notice.
Exports (at least to H.264) are taking the card up to about 76%."
What version of Premiere, for instance the current Premiere is 188.8.131.52?
I recently built almost the same rig, and am very happy. Some comments:
1. It won't make a big difference, but you might look at faster memory. 2133 is the bottom of the barrel for DDR4. Eric Bowen pointed out that the higher-rated memory is probably better quality, even if the speed difference is negligable.
2. I have an X99-A, and I'm very happy, but I've already started thinking about another M.2 card, and this MB only accepts one. I could buy an adapter and use a slot, but it's nice to have more options.
3. I had a HAF 932, and I found it noisy and offered no protection against dust in the case. You already own the case, and you probably don't want to spend more money, but I am very happy with a Fractal R5 now. Your new componants (don't know about your HDDs) are all pretty quiet, so maybe the lack of noise isolation in the HAF is not a big deal.
What do you use your M.2 slot for? / What would you need the second one for?
My M.2 slot has a Plextor PX-G256M6e that is the C: drive. It's a little faster than an SATA SSD. It reads at 720MB/sec vs about 500MB/sec for a Crucial MX100 on a SATA port. Samsung makes a drive that is even faster, using 4 PCI-E lanes I believe.
