    We tried to improve our video rendering times significantly with a hardware upgrade, and the results were... interesting.

    The 9 minute render time wasn’t that crazy in the first place, seems like a waste of time to upgrade so soon.

    I bet there's no food made in that kitchen....I really admired you so totally, Linus, until you didn't use a funnel! I love funnels! I think this video proves Adobe Premiere kind of sucks. You should check out Blackmagic's editing software.

    In Windows you can setup your energy settings to not throttle down the cpu if its not uses so it runs at 100% Speed the whole time.

    I think it's time you change your software, one that can use multiple cpu and gpu

    'Precision water pouring...' and spills it almost immediately. Use a bloody funnel, they're not expensive, unlike the hardware you spill water all over :D

    Linus makes sure his hardware grows big and strong, by making sure it has plenty of water.

    Do a full reinstall next time. I wouldn't trust MS to stay reliable after a full chipset swap. Win 10 would probably suit you better for newer hardware too.

    Don't mean to be cruel but re install the O.S. with all applicable patches and ramp up system memory to maximum supported switching off swapfile and then on in separate test rounds. XMP may not work best with swapfile. However as is at least it won't fry! ya i know months after this vid so appologies! perhaps XMP on a small SSD twin RAID stripe with swapfile on that.

    Maybe I didn't get it, but why don't you use 2 (or more) normal servers instead of one monster-server?

  • William Marino

    I wonder if you would got better time if you would let the system run in Quad channel memory mode. I had some issues with Quad Channel memory and xmp on x99 5820k but giving the ram more voltage made the issue go away. While minus the 2 hours if fiddle with voltage to the ram phase control

    Come on Linus, $59.99 for your stealth hoodie? I like it but not that much. Maybe for $39 I'd budge
