I know slot 5 on the newest z820 is needed for the thunderbolt adapter, and is wired to a separate chipset because of that. This might be why they are saying not to use it?


The newest config guide doesn't have any restrictions on the asus motherboard for resolve 11.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. I waited for this reolve 11 config guide and now i am about to start the process of building a work station on the asus motherboard. But somebody suggested DELL R7610 work station(because of dual processor e5-2600 series). What do u suggest is R7610 good for resolve or shall i stick with the config guide(p9*79e-ws)?

Thanks
PL

Sorry, can't comment on those boards. I have a dual processor z820.

I would be careful going away from the config guide if you are doing a DIY box. The guide is there for a reason. For the Dell, you would have to make sure you understand how the slots are divided up for the sharing of resources. Just because you have six slots, doesn't mean you can use them all for anything you want.

Do a lot of research. Read the boards manual. It will usually be pretty clear what can and can't be plugged in at the same time.

My box goes through a few different configs, depending on the type and size of project I'm working on. I use it with Avid DS mostly, as well as Media composer and resolve.

I have had two graphics card in it, K4000 and gtx 780?..not sure about the exact model. That gave me real time red at half res good.

Just remember it isn't all about the graphics card. Ram, and storage play a role as well. Fast storage is a must in my experience. As well, for most red work, I don't need to be at full premium unless I'm looking at a particularly noisy shot. Other wise I keep the resolution lower until its time to render.

For the most part though, I love the z820. Totally customizable, which for me is a must. Add in thunderbolt from all the shooters who forget that not everyone is on a mac, and its great.
