For the power-user - Massive DSP in a Rack!

  • Silent 4U Rackmount case
  • 650w Quiet power-supply
  • Intel i5 14600k @ 5.3GHz (14 cores)
  • 32GB DDR5
  • 500GB M.2 SSD (OS/Applications) 
  • UHD-770 (two monitors)
  • WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2
  • Windows 11 x64 
  • 2 year warranty


Case:

Silent 4U Rackmount case is sturdy and roomy with a total of 6 drive bays (includes rackmount ears).

Can house a 360mm CPU cooler... allowing us to run 14th Gen CPUs without limitations.  


Power-Supply:

The stock 650w power-supply is quiet.

The 750w, 850w, and 1000w units are ultra quiet (fan only runs under heavy loads).

If running many bus-powered peripherals, lots of internal drives, or dual high-end video cards... select the 850w or 1000w.


CPU:

14600k (14 cores, 20 processing threads, 5.3GHz max turbo)

14700k (20 cores, 28 processing threads. 5.6GHz max turbo)


RAM:

32GB is sufficient for most users.

For hard-core composers, the Pro Rack allows up to 128GB.


OS drive:

Small M.2 SSD is what we now recommend for most clients. 

With a M.2 SSD, the machine boots quicker, apps open quicker, and navigating the OS is more "snappy".


Audio drive:

A conventional HD can sustain over 100 solid/contiguous 24Bit/44.1k tracks of audio.

No need for SSD as Audio drive... (unless you're working at higher sample-rates).


Samples drive:

Disk-streaming sample libraries is where a SSD really shines.

M.2 Ultra SSDs use 4 PCIe lanes and sustain 3200-7000MB/Sec (17-35 times the speed of conventional HD).

If pushing the limits with disk-streaming sample libraries, M.2 Ultra will yield absolute


SATA SSD:

If 3-5 M.2 SSDs aren't enough for your work/scenario (rare), we can use SATA SSDs in addition to M.2 SSDs.

SATA SSDs sustain ~540MB/Sec.

SATA SSDs are perfect for disk-streaming libraries where you aren't pulling super heavy polyphony.


Burner:

24x DVD/RW handles all CD/DVD burning needs (which is fine for most users).

If you're working with high-res or video projects (huge files), 16x BDR (Blu-ray Burner) is convenient.


Video:

UHD-770 is fine for straight up audio production (can run a pair of monitors).

For editing/rendering video, you want a RTX card (provides hardware accelerated processing/rendering).

To run three or four monitors, you'll want to select one of the RTX cards.

To run multiple 4k monitors, select one of the RTX cards (connect via HDMI or Display Port).


Firewire:

If you're using a Firewire audio interface or external HD, add a TI chipset Firewire controller.  If not, you don't need this controller.


Thunderbolt:

On the PC, we now have complete "PCIe via Thunderbolt" support.

You must be running an up-to-date install of Win11 and have a motherboard that provides Thunderbolt-4 via USB-C port.

Antelope, RME, MOTU, Presonus, and UA have full "PCIe via Thunderbolt" drivers available.  

If the audio interface is Thunderbolt-2, you'll need a Thunderbolt-3 to Thunderbolt-2 adapter.  (Thunderbolt-4 can use the same adapter)


Operating System:

Many have been waiting for that compelling reason to move to Win11.  With recent builds of Win10, Microsoft has broken the ability to disable CPU core parking.  If you're running a current generation CPU, this is that compelling reason.  For maximum performance (especially at low latency), we need CPU core parking fully disabled. Win11 allows us to fully disable CPU core parking.

All major audio software/hardware is now working well with Windows 11.

"Pro" version has Group Policy Editor (easy to shut down OneDrive, Cortana, etc)... and can fully disable all automatic updates.

This is why we no longer offer Win10 for current generation hardware.
