    OC / Setup

    I built this system mainly for SQL Server and video editing. I am not really impressed. I may have something miss configured. I believe I have chosen about the top of the line in my hardware except the processor. AT the time of purchase I couldn't get any faster memory in DDR4 8GB sticks either. I like the motherboard but I expected this thing to scream. I have done many registry tweaks in Windows to try and speed things up. From cold boot the system comes up in less than 10 seconds, so that's not an issue. My issue is that some things are still slow like SQL Server queries or ripping "backups" of some of my movies. What I am wondering is maybe I don't have my memory configured properly. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. My memory spec is for 2800 MHz but it looks like it is running at half speed 1400 MHz. This may be something I not understanding. I have the bios set to XMP.

    Your memory is running at the correct speed (multiply the shown value by 2 = DDR4-2800).

    Encoding speeds will increase with CPU frequency to some extent so you might want to overclock the processor.

    Hello

    Both of these are limited by the drive performance.

    Cores and threads and memory have huge impact, as well. But no so much on this system, so correct - the drive(s) will be the bottleneck. Especially if, collectively, they saturate the X99-to-CPU DMI2 bus. And Raja's correct, increasing raw processing speed will have significant impact. (FWIW, I noticed this a lot on what I do after I "upgraded" from a 4.6GHz i7-5960X to a 4.4GHz E5-1680-3.)

    Installing a second (identical) SSD will allow you to set up a striped RAID, which can increase (nearly double) all Read and Write IOPS, especially on "sequential" access with medium and larger files (which includes most database and video files).

    You can also use Samsung's RAPID Magician software to allocate 4GB RAM towards Read and/or Write caches, which also greatly increases data throughputs (in extreme cases up to 100x faster!), especially with numerous "random access" small files. Unlimited software provided "free" with your Samsung 850.

    And you can use ROG RAMDisk software to allocate many GBs towards the specific data you work with most. Put your mighty 64GB of DDR4 to work - because Windows won't. Unlimited software provided "free" with your RVE mobo.

    You may suffer a severe real-time performance hit if you're running BitLocker or other cryptosecurity software in a badly-configured manner which encrypts/decrypts things in a needlessly frequent, inefficient (and, as it happens, much less secure) manner than intended.

    If performance is still unsatisfactory then maybe it's time to consider restructuring your data into partitioned hierarchies, smaller segments which your system hardware can chew on a bit easier.

    Hello

    "ripping "backups" " implies transferring the media from a disk. If this is the case nothing can speed up this process.

    I didn't catch that, lol.

    Not really a whole lot you can really do to speed up those slow optical CD/DVD/BD drives, aside from getting the fastest ones available.
