  1. Earlier
  2. Check your power connectors to ensure the drive isn't losing power somehow. Also check the SATA cable to ensure it's not loose. If the drive is still disappearing, it may be the drive is dying. Does this happen in another computer or a hard drive dock?
  3. Problem with the bios utility (Asus)

    What happens when you hit F10? Do you go into Windows? I'd hit F7 and go into the options. You may have the boot menu setup in a way that it boots into the BIOS rather than the Windows bootloader.
  4. Problem with the bios utility (Asus)

    This my laptop model: Asus Zenbook flip UX360UAK
  5. Hi This my first topic here, pls help me with my problem. i bought my laptop one year ago, and before 2 months starts the problem with bios i was doing the usual work on my laptop and suddenly it’s the laptop start rebooting and enter the bios utility by itself !! And i can’t get access to my windows even if i keep rebooting the device it’s still returning to the bios window!! so i kept searching in the internet until I found how to update the bios, so I updated already and everything comes back to normal but now!! The same problem happened again the device stuck in the bios window and i can’t go to my windows!! and i’m already in the latest version in the bios. i don’t know what to do actually ? Thank you and I appreciate your help
  6. Hey guys, I am new to the forum. I have an issue where my PC is not seeing my hard drive. It sees my WD solid state drive fine. But I also have a 2 TB toshiba drive it does not see. I have gone into disk management and actually formatted it before, but it usually goes away in a very short time. I have done this 3 or 4 times. Is there a reason for this? Does anyone know if this is fixable? Thanks is advance.
  7. It looks like it should be enough although honestly I'm not very familiar with Wirecast. That said, I've used OBS and it should be similar. On Wirecast's website, it seems like your system should be fine. Depending on your budget, it may be worthwhile to upgrade to a workstation grade graphics card though as Wirecast supports NVENC and I'm not sure if Wirecast will work with non-workstation cards. As for latency, it shouldn't be an issue, but since it's quite a few streams of live video, it may be worthwhile to go with an Intel system that doesn't have the possibility of latency issues at all. That said, video feeds going from cameras into cables then into your system will easily crack 100ms of latency at its worst, so I doubt a little bit of interdie latency should be something to be worried about.
  8. Workstation Recommendation

    For an application like that, you don't really need a whole lot. The entry level workstation would be a good choice. Feel free to upgrade to a Samsung 860 EVO if you'd like. If the budget allows for it, you can go with an 8th Gen Intel Core system, but honestly a quad core will be more than enough. ASUS motherboards are solid. Haven't had much issues with them. MSI and Gigabyte are good alternatives if you don't like ASUS. Kingston or Crucial are both great picks for memory. I like Corsair personally as well, but with the reputable brands the memory will all be solid. To drive the 3-4x monitors, you can get a lower end workstation graphics card like the Nvidia Quadro P600.
  9. First off, cool site I have gone thru the threads but have a different type of rig question. I would like to build a pc for my father who works at home trading stocks. Many custom pc sites are overkill for his specific use so will attempt to build it myself unless there is another recommendation. Requirements: SSD Primary (Samsung 860 EVO 250gb)? 2x 1-2 Tb with Raid 1 (All documents/file storage mirroring) Support for 3-4x monitors (no need for 4K res) Personally buy Intel i5/i7 but would consider AMD considering business application Also have 2 pc's with ASUS MB, tho they seem to get bad rap, and either Kingston or Crucial for Mem I'm looking for quality so he doesn't run into any problems with sub-par components long term however doesn't need to be overkill either. If I can keep it around $1K that would be great but would go over if needed. Monitors are not included in this price just the tower itself. Thank you for your help.
  10. Hello: We are looking to upgrade our video hardware at our church and are evaluating our options. Instead of dealing with a hardware switcher, we are looking to utilize a software switcher like Wirecast to capture, record, display, and stream our program. These are the builds I am looking at: The bottom line is this. Is this enough? We want to ingest 6 camera feeds and 2 graphic feeds. The feed is then processed by Wirecast and output through the GPU or Blackmagic decklink recorder to our projector PC to be displayed on our IMAG. Should I be concerned out latency greater than 100ms? Any input would be appreciated, especially if you are familiar with dealing with multiple capture sources in Wirecast. This PC may also be used for post and photoshop as well.
  11. New pc clueless

    I'd recommend getting a different memory setup. 2x4GB or 2x8GB as the platform is dual channel memory. If you only use a single stick, you will be running on single channel which is half the bandwidth. If you can afford it, I'd also recommend going with a full SSD over the hybrid. Hybrid SSD/HDDs are still very slow compared to a true SSD.
  12. New pc clueless

    Looking at the attached as a potential new pc, does it look decent? Is there a visible bottle neck? What parts would you change/keep the same. Any and all advice welcome.
  13. Is Intel optane needed for my system?

    It really depends on what you're using the Optane drive for. If it's for something specific that requires extremely high performance storage like caching uncompressed high bitrate video, then yes Optane will be the optimal choice. Otherwise, something like a Samsung 960 Pro will be a better choice in terms of price to performance/capacity.
  14. Understanding Graphics Cards

    Hey JBoone, I touch a bit on it in the best workstation builds article. Essentially for video editing, it really boils down to better drivers that are better optimized for workstation applications vs drivers optimized for games.
  15. In that case, the build looks perfect. I don't see any glaring issues. That 1000w PSU is a bit overkill but otherwise everything looks good.
  16. Just read the article on 'Best Video Editing Computers'.... As I am a sports coach learning about video editing, can someone please point me to an explanation of 'Consumer vs Workstation Graphics Cards'? thanks!
  17. I am setting up a workstation server with the following components (plese find the attachment). I would like to get suggestions from experienced Tech GURUs. Considering this specification, will the presence or absence of Intel optane make difference in performance?. I think the data transfer between the DDR4 2400 and M.2 will be fast enough and Intel optain might remain unused. What do you guys experienced in real life experiments?. Any suggestion on betterment this specs or any missing things are highly appreciated. Thanking you in advance.
  18. Hello, Rom, all specs are looking good except 2 things. as per admin. you should choose Samsung 850 EVO or Pro these both are best SSD. and I have also GeForce GTX 1050 by MSI which is good but let you know if I would be your place I'll choose EVGA 1060 3GB gaming graphics card instead of 1050. I am not technical but I have these two products and experience with them. The choice is yours.
  19. The computer is multi-function - I will be using it for gaming - I play (or want to play) Star Wars Battlefront 2, EVE, WoW, Star Citizen (someday maybe if they ever finish it) now, but haven't been able to try other titles (including SWBF2) due to current system limitations. It will also be used for "household" stuff such as MS Office-type applications Quicken, etc. There will also be limited-to-moderate video and picture editing via Adobe Creative Suite.
  20. What's the purpose of the build?
  21. There are tons of these I see on here, but all are relatively unique. As such, I am posting... I am looking to build a new custom PC for gaming. I am looking to balance performance & functionality as well as future-proofing (if such a thing is possible) against budget. I am trying to keep the system under $3,000. I have done a bit of research into things like processors, gpu, cpu, boards, etc., but truth-be-told, I don't know anywhere near enough to be confident in what I set up. As such, if you could look at the build below and provide any feedback, I would appreciate it.

  22. Thank you again Sorry for bothering so much. Then i will try something like this: Motherboard: ASUS Prime Z370-A, Intel Z370, DDR4, G-LAN, SATA, RAID, PCI-E 3.0, USB Type 3.1, DVI, DP, HDMI, M.2, ATX, s. 1151 Processor: Intel Core i7-8700 Coffee Lake 6-Core CPU Cooler: CryOrig H7 OS Hard Drive: SSD Samsung 960 EVO 250 GB, M.2 (22x80mm), NVMe PCIE x4, MZ-V6E250BW Memory: Corsair 16 GB DDR4 3200MHz Vengeance Black (2x8GB kit) Power Supply: 750W Corsair RMx Series RM750x, ATX 2.4, CP-9020092-EU Case: Fractal Design Define R5 Titanium Window What do you think? Regards
  23. I think the ASUS Prime Z370A is a good choice. It's a solid motherboard with a good value proposition. As you're not overclocking, you could go with a H300 series motherboard, but these aren't out yet, so you're stuck with the Z300 series motherboards. That said, the Z300 series stuff tend to be higher grade anyway so it's not a bad tradeoff.
  24. Hi, One more question please. Should i go for some other Motherboard if i choose i7-8700. Is it maybe some cheaper option that you can recommand me or the asus prime z370a is fine? Regards
  25. Thank you Sam, I will try to make some build. Regards
  26. 1. Generally applications like that should support multi-threading. If not then yes, Intel will be faster thanks to faster IPC. 2. Depends. What are you doing with the card? If building large models at very high resolutions, a higher end card would be better. If you're doing simple models, then a lower memory graphics card should suffice. 3. Sure, that would be a good choice if you're not planning on overclocking.
