Hi Guys! I´m building a new computer to render with Octane+C4D and compose the output in AE, with heavy emphasis in GPU power for Octane. What do you think overall? your opinions are more than welcome. I have an extra SSD m2 for the AE cache and 128 GB ram. Also a raid with 2xSSD mirroring for program files and working footage. An extra tera HD would be use as archive. Do you think the processor would do well with AE and C4D? Will Octane benefit at all from an extra SSD for cache? And from the 128 GB Ram?? Do you think cooling can be an issue with the current setup? Thanks a lot in advance!

Hi, I've been learning motion graphics in AE and C4D over the last year or so and feel it's time to consider upgrading my PC. Below is my current build: - GA-Z77X-UD5H motherboard - Intel Core i7-3770K - Gigabyte GTX 770 2GB (OC Edition) - 32GB Patriot Viper 3 - Sandisk Extreme 120GB SSD for OS - Samsung 840 Pro 256GB SSD for AE disk cache - 1TB Seagate HDD for project files - 400GB Seagate HDD for renders - Corsair Carbide 500R case - Corsair HX750 PSU I've also just bought: - 2x Samsung 850 Pro 256GB - Noctua NH-D15 cooler I plan to use more of C4D as time goes on and have been advised to get into Octane rendering. With that in mind: Can anyone recommend any worthwhile upgrades or replacements for this build? Would adding a second GTX 770 be worthwhile or do I need to replace the GPU for something more powerful and with more memory, ideally? I'm open to considering replacing the CPU and/or motherboard, if a new CPU would substantially benefit my work? How is best to configure my drives? Thanks for your help!
The time has finally come to leave our mac pros behind. We want to expand our use of Octane in C4D, so we have been looking at 4 GPU PC options. Does anyone here have experience with these? It looks like Boxx and a couple others have some options, but a custom built system seems to be the best value right now. How does a workstation based on these parts sound?

We may do some GPU render nodes based on a stripped down version of this too (basically 1 HD, and a lot cheaper CPU). Is Windows 7 still the best choice?
Hi fellow mographers, Just wondering if anyone has some insight or advice on a Octane hardware solution, preferably Mac based so as to keep my setup on all the same os. Octane GPU rendering will be perfect for some of my personal projects, so this is going to be a home setup. I currently have a 27" iMac to use as the monitor and my budget is between £1k ~ £2k so I've been thinking about getting a used Mac Pro from ebay, perhaps a 6 core - then sticking a decent GPU card in it, or two semi good ones. Has anyone got any experience on such a set up? I've been doing some googling, and as I'm someone who is not familiar with building PC's etc I'm totally confused by this talk of 'flashing' a GPU card etc. So some of the technical details I've read so far have been a bit off putting for someone who just wants to plug stuff in and get going. From what I've researched so far it would seem I could put a Asus Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 inside and then use a separate power supply to power that. Am I on the right tracks with that sort of research? Also - I see mention of Octane Cloud rendering, but apart from a mention on Octanes blog I don't see any further news/info. If that's an option I'd consider it too. If anyone has some insights, I'd really appreciate it.
