I am currently building my 2nd PC EVER!!! I am building a workstation (NON-GAMER) that includes the needs of;


Graphic Design - Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, GIMP, Etc.

Photo Restoration - Photoshop, Gimp, Etc

Video Encoding, Transcoding, Decoding,

Plex Media Server, UTorrent, DLNA, Home Automation Features Control

4K Video Editing (Cyberlink Power Director Latest Version/Build - 30 FPS (1 Monitor 4K & 1 1080p or Even DVI) Dual Monitors


Current Build So Far

- Fractal Meshify C - 5 Fans, 2-140, 3-120

- ASUS ROG Strix B350 F Gaming Mobo

- Thermaltake - Smart Series GDP 700 W

- Windows 10 Pro 64 bit OEM

- Samsung Evo 960 - NVMe M.2 250GB Boot/Program Files Drive

- Seagate Barracuda 3TB 7200 HDD


Parts Still In Question


- Ryzen 7 1700 vs. Ryzen 5 1600?

- Wraith Spire Cooler vs. AIO (Is it needed over the Wraith)?


- GPU that can handle my needs (Again I DON'T GAME - So I don't care about 80FPS +) I use PowerDirector 15 (Not Davinci Resolve) CUDA vs OpenCL? AMD vs. GTX Series?

- Will a GTX 1050 Ti work well?


RAM - There are so many conflicting views with RYZEN. Is it worth to OC to 3200 or leave at 2666?


I am getting DDR4 32gb, 2x16 Single Rank - Brand? Model that works great?


Additional Parts Added @ Another Time


- 250 GB SSD (For Current Projects)

- (2ND) Seagate Barracuda 3TB 7200 HDD

- USB DVD Drive (Just in Case)- Clients Might Have Photos on a CD/DVD


Should I overclock anything? Bios Asus Settings?


That's a lot, but I hope someone has experience and can help. Video editing, not gaming.
