I have done some Video Editing and it is very smooth. This PC can keep up with some intense stuff. I have also been playing a lot of VR on this pc and its amazing! Check out all the unboxing videos I made and edited using the new AMD Ryzen 1700x editing PC! (Scroll down to see)
But then there are all the times I am listening to music and the sound gets slow and makes a digital sound, then the BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death)…
These are just some of the times it crashes, I couldn’t always get my camera out in time.
(Update 5-5-2017 – I think the source of the errors was using the Drivers that came with the hardware, I reinstalled windows and only used Windows Update for the drivers, which found everything and has not crashed yet…)
(UPDATE 2 – 6/15/2017 – I have been using the computer the past month with no issues! No blue screens, no digital sounds, no issues at all!)
(Update 3 – 7/22/2017 – After the month of no blue screens, they started again. But this time I updated the BIOS from (3/14/2017 Ver 5.0000C to 6/26/2017 Ver 5.0000C) and it seems to have finally fixed all the issues I have been having! The computer even boots up twice as quick and I can run at FULL RAM SPEED! Amazing BIOS update! Anyone with issues should try this update first!)
I have been making weekly videos for a few of my YouTube channels and I can not keep up with the editing using my old PC.
When I was editing footage from my DSLR camera, I would hit play to preview what changes I made and the audio would play but the video would not. At this point I knew I needed a new PC!
My Editing PC is an old 2 core AMD Phenom II x2 3.4Ghz which I UNLOCKED TO 4 core. I then overclocked from 3.4Ghz to 3.6Ghz! But this was with a very old Video card (AMD Radeon HD 5450 -1gb ddr3) and slow 800Mhz ram.
