    Hi everyone,

    two years ago I went with this build, it has served me well.
    I now want to upgrade it to 2014 standards. I need more video editing power especially to handle 4k footage :thumbup:

    I'm planning on buying the extra wide
    LG 34UM95-Pdisplay, so my gtx 580 probably wont be able to handle the resolution. and I believe I can still beef up my machine

    My current set up is:



    • Gigabyte Z77X-UP5 TH
    • Intel i7 3770K
    • gainward gtx 580 3gb
    • Corsair Hydro Series H80
    • Corsair DDR3 1600MHz 16GB
    • Corsair Vengeance C70 Black
    • Coolermaster GX 750W
    • various hard drive and ssd


    Could anyone suggest some component that would make this machine better for video editing (main use) without breaking the bank:?:

    Please add your comments to my post in Buying Advice: http://www.tonymacx86.com/buying-advice/151794-slugnet-video-editor-2014-update-help.html

    Thanks!

    ould also note that, after getting everything working, I also connected the USB 3.0 3.5" Front Panel that came with the motherboard to the F_USB30_1 on the motherboard (which I had seen other people report as not working in their build). I have full USB 3.0 support through it, with speeds very similar to my other Blackmagic Speed Tests. That gives me 6 fully functioning USB 3.0 ports on this system. However, USB

    I've just upgraded to Yosemite and I'm having a couple of annoying problems with this build.

    First install I got the same grey screen with crossed out circle - but reinstalled and this time didn't click trim patch 10.10.0 in Multibeast and now it loads.

    But my system now won't shut down or restart - it doesn't go to black, just hangs on the wallpaper with the toolbar still visible but nothing else.

    Also I can't get the audio working - ALC898 doesn't seem to be doing it.

    Any advice?

    (Everything worked fine under Mountain Lion - so I'm wondering if I should just roll back to that?)

    As a general rule of thumb after many frustrations with apple 10 years ago (and video editing), never upgrade to the latest OS, upgrade to the perfected OS, which is currently 10.9.5. All the bugs have been worked out of that one.

    Has anyone gotten this build up to Sierra yet?

    I get to a gray screen and the beachball, and it's stuck.

    Not sure what I'm missing in the upgrade steps...

    Hey guys, I just want to report that this build can easily upgrade to Sierra without any problem. Remember to use 16Gb USB thumb drive, and the process is straightforward just like previous version of MacOS. After the post installation, remember to remove the installation USB otherwise the screen will never displays the correct resolution. Reboot your computer and you done.

    For my system, I did a fresh installation and everything seem to works very well. All USB ports, Ethernet port, sound and my three monitors are working fine.

    Did you have to change your system definition or anything else? I'm still running 3,1 - heard that the older Mac definitions arent' supported any longer...

    Thanks!

    Yes, If you use Multibeast 9, the default system definition is 14,1.
    I'm using 14,1 and everything work very well so far.
