I know this is not woodturning related but it is related to operating Woodturning Tool Store and I thought some of you out there might be interested. So, when I edit woodturning related YouTube videos I have been getting frustrated over the video editing process being difficult and long because of mistakes. My old video editing PC could not process the video quick enough to make the editing tasks efficient. Also, there were other programs were I was struggle or pushing the old machine pretty hard – CAD, image manipulations to name a couple.
A new PC is a expensive but so is my time. As a result I decided to build my own spec’d video editing PC. After a few weeks of watching YouTube vids and researching parts I made the plunge. I found PCPartPicker.com t be a valuable resource. It helps you build a stocklist of BOM for your new PC. Check it out if you are interested.
Below is the PCPartPicker list for my new video editing PC. The only difference in the M.2 NVMe SSD by Sabrent. It was not listed in PCPartPicker since it is new to the market. I chose it because the Samsumg EVO 970 m.2 NVMe SSD was not available in stock and the Sabrent had great spec’s that rivaled the Samsung at 70% the cost.
This new video editing PC is a screaming fast machine and should serve me for many years. Thanks for reading and if you have any questions of comments please leave them below.
A brief update …
So I have had to modify the case front cover of this case to create better airflow. I drilled about 48 holes in three area over each front fan (144 total holes). The holes are 1/8″ with a countersink. The countersink helps hide some of the cracks and looks better. It is not pretty up close but looks fine when glancing at it but the performance in airflow is the main point. I have at least 5 degrees cooler with this modification.
