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.
Michael would you please read my post “Z440 CPU COMPATIBLE UPGRADES” from two months ago. It is my first and only post. It has received 37 views, but no replies. I might, in my ignorance, have written it in an offensive way somehow unbeknown to me. I’m kinda old and don’t necessarily get all the intricacies of web communications. I would like to upgrade my z440. Thanks for your consideration.
