    Black film guild built a custom one for under 3k using PCIe cards…. He shows it at 2200/MB sec… pretty insane.

    ok… I just down voted your video… please stop doing this… are you working for tv adds or what cos that shit of holding back the cost of the build till about the end… is a very trashy move… downgrades whatever quality you were trying to bring up…

    Hi Sean. Awesome setup. My question is, if I have a $1500 budget for a new computer, where would you make the cuts on this unit? Storage space? GPU? What would keep the price down a bit, but still have adequate power to process 4k efficiently? Thanks in advance!

    Hey Sean, Thanks for the review. I watched several other guys and decided that yours was the best. I followed your advice and purchased the same system from CUK. I'm currently waiting on it to arrive. One thing you mentioned was designating a drive for different uses to get a better and faster flow during 4K editing. Do I have to program or make this particular designations myself? If so, can you give us a quick lesson on how to best set up Adobe PR Pro and AF using this CUK system?

    Ok, I got pretty much the exact same computer you did…How do you set up all the programs to put the certain things in the certain hard drives? I got 4TB Hybrid Drive, 500 GB Data Drive SSD, and 512GB Intel SSD. I've been looking around for how to set this up and don't see any good videos (maybe I'm just not looking for the right thing). Could you do a walkthrough on how you set up Premiere, AE, Photoshop Etc, to save certain files, cache or whatever to the certain drive? Or point me to a good video that does this? Thanks Buddy!

    Great video with useful info but with very little visuals to butress. We heard you talk more than we saw what you talked about. Please in the next one, do close ups and even macro shots of the rig while your voice explains away in the background. Nothing says "go buy yours" more than audio-visual demonstrations. Ask marketers/salesmen. I just subbed too.

    I'm definitely thinking of getting a 6850k instead of a 6700k or 7700k. I feel like it's more ideal long term if you want to edit or even game. Still a sick setup though. I can't pick a damn case though… too many to choose from.

    Hello, I really love this video because of all the specs you gave for this custom tower. I'm new to all of this but would like to build a desktop computer that will just be a MONSTER for video editing because I'm planning on setting up a YouTube channel and editing many videos. My question is should I speak with you about what I should have in my desktop computer or just speak with the people at computer kings and tell them you sent me? Thank you!

    Signs that you don't know much about computers.

    -You buy a pre built.
    -You only state the graphics card not the model.
    -Your PC has 64TB of RAM
    -You don't show the insides of the case.

Also why does urs look better and has a liquid cooled fan while the picture on the site has a regular fan? I checked and I didn't see an option to change that

I end up scrolling down so I can't see you and then I just listen to what you're saying. Can you try to be a little more relaxed when you make the videos? Thanks for the info…
