Hi, I'm after advice on what I might need to upgrade to squeeze a bit more performance out of my current rig and whether anything is currently acting as a bottleneck? I use this machine for motion graphics work in After Effects, some Cinema 4D and occasional video editing in Premiere. This was my first ever rig so I may have made a few mistakes?
- Intel Core i7-3770K
- Gigabyte GTX 770 2GB
- 32GB Patriot Viper 3
- Sandisk SSD for OS
- Samsung 840 Pro SSD for AE disk cache
- 1TB Seagate HDD for project files
- 400GB Seagate HDD for renders
- Corsair Carbide 500R case
- Corsair HX750 PSU
Was going to overclock the i7 if you think that's worth it? Need to pick a CPU cooler if anyone can recommend one? I was also wondering if replacing the two HDDs with SSDs would be worthwhile? Not sure if adding a second GPU would help?
Anyway, thanks for any help, really appreciate it.
Take a look at our Premiere Pro BenchMark (PPBM) Tweakers Page and/or run the benchmark. If you register you can see the Results Page. This is of course Premiere specific but will give us an idea how your system is tuned.
