Post Your Rig 2015/2016/2017, It's Been Long Enough

Post by Kionon » Tue Nov 10, 2015 7:12 am

Given the interest in historical archiving of the AMV community over time, I'm putting together a more organised group of Post Your Rig/AMV Cribs threads. Obviously, in many of the threads, there are often lots of broken image links. However, it's worth it for those that still work if you're willing to put in the time to go through the effort of clicking through the threads. There's some fine history here, especially for those of you who are recent and younger editors.

Doesn't look much different from the set up the last time I posted, probably, but it's a newer MacBook with a much more powerful processor and better GPU. It is far from the newest, but the newest lacked firewire and an optical drive. Kinda necessary if you want to rip DVDs for older series. It was also very cheap, even with AppleCare, since Apple was trying to get rid of them.

It currently has a 64GB SSD in it, but I may move that up to 128 or 256. Storage is aided by a 1TB Apple AirPort Time Capsule, which can be run both over Wi-Fi or ethernet, and ethernet makes it blazing fast for editing. Wi-Fi, uh, not so much. It also can daisy chain, so I have my 1TB of ripped Anime in the black enclosure. Rounded out by the Apple bluetooth keyboard (remapped to Japanese), and a Magic Mouse. Mobile technology includes the iPhone 5C I will soon be giving away for a birthday present (Jailbroken, soon to be unlocked), my iPhone 6S running KODI (formerly XBMC) for AMV goodness on the go. Media in the car is handled by a dash-attached iPhone 4.

Mactastic since 2008, and still rolling that way now.

This has been my rig for awhile now. Basically my computer has the following specs.

Intel i7 4770k
Nvidia GTX 770
One 64GB SSD + Two 2TB Drives
16GB Ram

Computer is hooked up to a 25" LG Ultrawide IPS and a 60" Vizio HDTV. I edit with Sony Vegas sometimes but mostly just for gaming.

Just built this Summer / Fall.

CPU: Core i7-5820K (6 core Haswell-E) @3.3GHz
RAM: 32GB DDR4-2666
GPU: eVGA GTX970 4GB SSC
Mobo: MSI X99A SLI KRAIT EDITION (10x SATA3 ports, USB 3.1, M.2 port, quad-SLI, 128GB max RAM)
Case: Corsair Carbide Series 400R
Storage: 1TB Samsung Evo SSD and ~6TB of HDDs (plus 6TB on the file server in the cabinet to the right)

Monitors are 2x 27" WQHD (1440p) no-name Korean eBay monitors and a 22" (1080p) Samsung thing I've had for quite a while. I'm sorta playing around with what I want to do with monitors after I get the DisplayPort adapters for the big guys - the card I bought has 5 ports and I'm keen to use as many as I can.

I really like this case - it has some amazing cable management capabilities. I went with a Cooler Master Nepton 240M with 4 120mm fans for double push-pull cooling - haven't installed some of them yet. I wanted to build with room for growth... I'm thinking 20TB or so of NAS hard drives and a real gaming mouse so this damn wireless PoS can finally die.

An ASUS X200CA laptop. That's it. The end.

Well, I do have optical mouse and headphones and a shockproof external hard disk but that's the lot.

Image

So spec is:

Intel Atom ('Celeron mobile') n2840 - 2 core, no hyperthreading. 2.16GHz burst to 2.5GHz.
2GB RAM
500GB 5400RPM HD (No SSD.)
Integrated Intel 4000 series video access RAM space and clocked at 400MHz.
11.6" inbuilt display at 1366 * 768. No external monitor.

Software: Kdenlive 0.9.0 running under Mint Linux 17.0 KDE 32 bit edition. All free.

I won't explain why - suffice to say that it is justified. Now, take a wander to my Youtube page to see what this little machine and Linux can do…

:lol:
Video editing on Kdenlive in Mint Linux KDE 17.0
H/W: An ASUS X200 dirt cheap Dual core atom n2840 at 2.16GHz
...and they said it couldn't be done!!! :lol:

New Tokyo apartment with a view of Ueno, I need new speakers and headphones and I'm looking into actually going bigger on my monitor, but probably not any time soon. Here yah go:

Got 2TB between the Apple Time Capsule and the Western Digital, the internal SSD only has 64GBs, sadly. And yes, that is a car seat, because I put racing seats in my car.

Cool! Is the car seat comfortable to sit in? @_@ Also jealous you live in Tokyo...

Here's my desk in my apartment.

Image Image

Image

The machine is a modified Dell XPS... I used the TB hard drive as a data drive and installed a 250 GB SDD for the boot drive. .-. I also installed more memory (24 GB though I don't think it lets me use all that?) and a better graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760). The laptop on my desk that I've dumped stuff on top of is just for when I need to do overtime for work.

Actually, I'm a total Suburban/Rural type. Give me Saitama/Gunma border any day over crowded, noisy, visually overwhelming Tokyo. I used to drive my Honda hatchback to work, now it sits two hours away (parking in the city, nope nope), and I take the subway. Tokyo isn't really my bag, but I couldn't turn down the type or pay for the position I took, so Tokyo it is.

Yeah I'm the same way, not a city person at all, so I live in the East Bay and commute like an hour by train/subway to San Francisco for my job. :T

It's not the most interesting rig but it's worked for me for years with only minor upgrades/repairs needed
Image

Image

Image

[edit Adding specs]
16gb ram
6 core 3.2ghz processor
nvidia 670
4TB HDD space with another 36ish in the NAS box on the floor (mainly used for backup and Plex streaming).
old shitty 24.4" widescreen monitor

Also it's always gray because I'm in Seattle and we don't get sun here.

18 years of editing rigs!

1998-2001: Sony VAIO Mini-Tower (333mhz Celeron, 32MB Ram), Compaq Presario Tower (600mhz Celeron, 64MB Ram). Storage increased over the years.

Image

2002-2004: Sony VAIO Laptop, no clue of specs anymore.

Image

2005: ShuttlePC, again don't remember the specs. Purchased first Apple, Mac Mini 1.4GHz PPC 120GB HD 1GB Ram for journalism classes.

Image

2006-2007: First use of dual monitors, ALL THE COMPUSA STORAGE. This was about the time I started to get annoyed with Windows.

Image

2007: New Samsung monitor Niotex recommended. Also, hi Seoul, South Korea. How you doin'?

Image

2008: Hi, Japan! Hi, Windows Vista...

Image

A magical dual switching of Mac Minis...and another Vista reinstall...

Image

Okay, screw Windows, said I, as I turned my ShuttlePC into a fully functional Hackintosh.

Image

2009-2010: Two G4 PowerMacs, Intel 2.1GHz Core Duo Mac Mini, MacBook White 2.4Ghz Core Duo, lots of screen space. This is by far the most comfortable I'd ever made myself. But it was total hell to move, and it turned me into a minimalist again. It started my lack of interest in acquiring stuff. I still own all of the KOR stuff, of course, but it's in storage.

Image

2012: Traded the Mac Mini in for a MacBook Pro aluminum body, 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo, 64Gb SSD, 4GBs Ram.

Image

2013-2014: The MacBook White died, and I've been back to a single machine since then. iPad 1, iPhone 3G unbearably slow, sold to RUSSIA! Goodbye, 20" Apple Cinema Display, hello LG 23" IPS LED.

Image

2015: Meet the new MacBook Pro, same as the old MacBook Pro, except for the 2.5GHz Core i5, still on Apple Care. iPhone 5c, iPhone 6S, Time Capsule, Wireless Keyboard. I also got an Epson Projector around this time. You can see it in the new pictures.

Image

And that brings us up to speed. Expected acquisitions soon: new speakers and headphones, possibility of a bigger screen, and an older MacPro Xeon. But I'm saving for some major medical expenses, which I have asked for help with, so I don't want to be too ostentatious.
