    floby2k1

      Hey folks. I'm looking into putting together my first build for a small form factor 4K editing machine and I'd appreciate getting your thoughts on how to get the most bang for my buck. My goal is to be able to smoothly playback 4K footage (even though I would mostly edit with proxies), render multiple Lumetri effect layers and some moderate After Effects work. Here's my current list:

       

      CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor  ($328.99 @ SuperBiiz)

       

      CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-L9i 33.8 CFM CPU Cooler  ($38.88 @ OutletPC)

       

      Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H170N-WIFI Mini ITX LGA1151 Motherboard  ($114.99 @ SuperBiiz)

       

      Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3000 Memory  ($169.99 @ Newegg)

       

      Storage: Samsung 950 PRO 256GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive  ($183.99 @ B&H)

       

      Storage: Seagate 2TB 2.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive  ($109.99 @ B&H)

       

      Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 8GB Mini ITX OC Video Card  ($399.99 @ SuperBiiz)

       

      Case: Fractal Design Node 202 HTPC Case  ($78.99 @ SuperBiiz)

       

      Power Supply: Corsair SF 600W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular SFX Power Supply  ($117.89 @ Amazon)

       

      Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro OEM 64-bit  ($109.98 @ My Choice Software)

       

      Total: $1653.68

       

       

      If you have any cost saving tips based on your experience, I'm all ears. Thanks for taking a look!
