Hi guys! I need some advice from hardware magicians. Since our studio is expanding a lot, we are looking to build some new powerful machines to renew our old workstations. Our main software is Houdini, 3dsmax and Modo, and renders are Redshift and Vray. We also want to use them as a farm, when no one is working on them or for night sims/renders. But for this one, it will be only for Houdini+Redshift, so im going to write down the list of hardware that i have in mind, and let's see if you can give me any help to have better specs. We can get up to 5-6k per machine. MOBO: Asus Z10PE-D16 WS CPUs: 2x Intel Xeon E5-2630V4 (i really think that is a bit overkill, i think it will be better and cheaper to get an i9 or one of this new AMD ones) RAM: 2x Crucial DDR4 2666MHz 32GB CL19 DRX4 ECC ( 64gb total, maybe getting 128, since this one will be the main houdini machine) SSD: Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB M.2 PCIe NVME SSD: GOODRAM SSD 960GB 2.5" CX300 LIQUID REFRIGERATION: Cooler Master MasterLiquid 120 PSU: Be Quiet! Dark Power PRO 11 1200W 80+ Platinum BOX: In Win 805C ATX GPU: 4x Gigabyte Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Gaming OC 8GB Let me know guys! Thanks in advance.
Hello everyone I am trying to build a somewhat high-end computer that will be able to handle all sorts of simulations in Houdini, especially high res flip and pyro sims. I don't know much about computer parts but here's what I am currently hoping to get: - Processor: Xeon E5-2687W v4 - Graphics card: GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC If anyone could share their thoughts on these two parts that would be greatly appreciated. And I'd also like some help choosing my SSD and RAM as I have no idea what would be good for running simulations in Houdini. Thank you so so much in advance Cheers.
Hello, Over the summer, I'm planning to build a new PC for doing FX work (and also just general purpose). My brother put together this spec on pc part picker, (since he's more knowledgeable than me when it comes to hardware) but I thought I'd ask for advice as to where I should spend my money. Here's what I'm currently looking at: I've never built my own PC before so any advice you could give would be really helpful!
Hi all, Completely new to Houdini and this forum! I am Cinema4D-er learning Houdini on a brand spanking new PC. It's also my first build so not-so-bright choices may have been made... It seems my viewport/perspective view is taking up so much time (Red-zone on the Performance Monitor). Figured I'd start by checking my hardware, so please judge my build for anything that is off... (Don't judge me ) Thanks for your help i7-7700K Asus Prime Z270-A Corsaie LPX DDR4-2133 MSI GeForce GTX 1060
