Just had my first day with the newly built DAW today:
i7 3930 Hex core @4.6 GHZ
Phanteks 140 HS/fans
32 gigs ram
Crucial 256 GB M4 SSD- windows 8 x64
Samsung 500 GB 840 SSD- samples drive
2 TB sample drive
1TB Audio drive
Corsair Obsidian 550 case.
Steinberg MR816 x2, UR824
Cubase 7 x64
Euphonix MC mix x2 MC transport.
Worked like a dream all day, just had one issue when opening a project with Halion 5, it couldn’t find the samples and crashed. Sorted it out with the search and all good.
Windows 8 is really great, even on a desktop non touch machine.
Big thanks to Scan in the UK for fantastic service, great O’d bench tested bundle, great service and the packages arrive exactly on the day and the hour they said.
I knocked back the fan speed with a small rise in temps but the machine is pretty silent now in the 550 case.
