My latest build - Z440
Hello. Just signed up to the forum today. I have been messing around with old workstations for about 10 years. I have built over 20 but have only sold about 5 of them in that time. It's definitely an addiction!
This is my latest that I will use for a mix of work and entertainment as usual. 3D CAD, rendering, photo & video editing, gaming and casual browsing. Running dual LG 27" 4K monitors and 2 sets of speakers for side-by-side gaming when a bro comes around.
-Standard Z440 chassis with optional fans, duct and 700W PSU
-128GB 2400MHz ECC RAM
-4x Samsung 860 Pro RAID0 array
-2x Seagate 8TB RAID0 array
-4x Samsung 970 Evo Plus (about to play with software RAID)
-Basic WiFi and Bluetooth card
-Asus Xonar DG sound card (for the optical output)
I'm enjoying finally being able to play at 4K 60fps with settings maxed or nearly maxed in my favourite games - even if I do have to leave the side panel off to let it breath/run quieter. Still half considering a case swap but that quickly snowballs into looking at PSUs, gaming motherboards etc.
Anybody know of software that allows manual chassis fan control on the Z440? I have used SetFSB, Speedfan etc. on previous machines but can't see any controls for this one.
