OK…so I moved over from Mac because Mac is not as powerful as what I can get for half the price on PC. So I reluctantly moved over. My last foray into the PC world was about 12 years ago, so bear with me.
But - is this “still” the world of PC’s after this long time? Blue screens and SketchUp crashing several times a day? I HAVE to be doing something wrong.
Here’s my “super” setup that I spared no money on:
Intel Core i9-7960X (16 core) - NOT Overclocked
ASUS Prime X299-A ATX
64GB Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4 3200 (using XMP in Bios)
Drive 1 - Samsung 1TB 960 EVO m.2 NVMe SSD
Drive 2 - Seagate 4T BarraCuda Pro 7200 SATA III
EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 Hybrid Gaming (Not overclocked)
Corsair RMx Series RM750X 750W PSU
Corsair Hydro Series H115i PRO RGB CPU Liquid Cooler
ASUS MG28UQ 28" FreeSync 4K Monitor
So - I did a lot of research and decided on these components based on being some of the best equipment available to build my “super” PC.
I didn’t touch any of the overclocking since I didn’t want to mess with a good thing! Only thing I did in BIOS was change memory to XMP to reach as high as I could.
Using SketchUp Pro. Have V-Ray Pro loaded. Here are the Extensions I have loaded:
CLF Shape Bender
Fredo6 Round Corner
Profile Builder 2
Layers Organizer (which looses all it’s folders when SketchUp crashes!!!)
So - I am begging for help. How do I make this system more stable? I just installed the system this past week, so all is a fresh install.
I uninstalled SketchUp today in the hopes that it would work better once I reinstalled from Administrator as some posts have suggested. I have screen magnification to 150%.
I’d be wiling to clear everything out and start from scratch if it will help my system.
Another big annoyance - I ordered a MiniDisplay Port cable to hook up my old 2009 iMac as a target display for the PC. Worked absolutely wonderful the first time I hooked it up. Decided to rearrange my desk and unplugged everything and rehooked everything up - now it doesn’t work???!! Literally did NOT change any settings, just unplugged, moved and reconnected everything. Can’t figure that one out either. Already tried unplugging monitors and tried all port arrangements to no avail. Little help online.
OK—it’s turning into a vent. But really, if anyone could help I would be eternally grateful.
