2011 Pin Broadwell-e 4K systems



The 2011 Pin system is the best choice for a single processor machine to edit 4K.  It gives you significantly more power than a regular Kaby lake system if you choose the 8 core processor (the default in this system quote) or the 10 processor.  A good example of the better performance is that we can playback Blackmagic 4K ProRes Mov files on the 2011 Pin Broadwell-E system, where as the Kaby Lake struggles to play them back.

XAVC and Panasonic 4K H.264 files created on the GH4, play better than ProRes MOVs mentioned above, so you can play about 2 layers of these on a  Skylake system, but the extra power of the 2011 Pin means you can play about 3 layers in the right editing program.

The advantage of the 2011 Pin system over the Kaby lake is that it can takemore RAM and has more internal expansion capability than the Kaby Lake.  This is especially useful when it comes to applications like grading, where having two graphic cards with a program like Resolve is a definite advantage.  It would be very hard to get two graphic cards and a 4K output card working in a Kaby Lake system and is a lot easier in a 2011 Pin.

2011 Pin Processors

The name 2011 Pin refers to how many pins are on the processor, not the year in which it was released!  The latest 2011 Pin processors (also known as Broadwell-E to be slightly more confusing) were released in September 2014

These motherboards can also use a single Xeon processor which means you can have a 10 or even a 16 core processor installed.  Please email or phone for more details.

Motherboards

The 2011 pin systems main advantages over the "Kaby Lake" processors are:

  • The motherboard can use more RAM so it is easy to install 32GB or 64GB RAM which the 64 bit editing applications will use. 
  • The motherboard is more expandable in terms of the number of extra PCIe cards you can install.  In a standard Kaby Lake system you could have a graphic card, 4K i/o card like a Blackmagic Intensity Pro 4K, and maybe one other card (A FireWire card for example) happily working.  In the 2011 PIN there is room for these plus a RAID card, and possible extra FireWire sockets, as well as other interface card.  This means the 2011 pin is more expandable.   The amount of extra resources does depend on the processor. 
  • It is also worth considering buying the "water cooled fan" for the processor which will keep the processor cooler and allow for you to "overclock" it - I.E. run it faster than the speed which is quoted on the processor.  This will give you better performance when editing.  We have successfully run the 8 core processor at 4GHz, compared to the quote 3Ghz speed, giving a significant boost in performance, but only if using a better cooling system than the normal quiet fan.  The water cooling is a completely self contained unit and will not require maintaining or re-filling like some water cooling options.
  • More hard drive connections.  The 2011 pin boards have 10 SATA connections internally where as the Kaby Lake only has 6.
  • The 2011 Pin system will need an extra USB3 card compared to the Kaby Lake system (this is a slight disadvantage compared to the regular Kaby Lake). The USB3 chipset used in this motherboard has had some issues with some external drives, Blackmagic USB3 devices and some RAID boxes. We recommend adding in another USB3 controller (as listed in the configuration).  The Kaby Lake motherboard has a good USB3 controller built-in.


Enthoo Pro Quiet case

We have a choice of two Quiet cases for our 2011 Pin systems.  The most commonly chosen is the Enthoo Pro case. This is a larger than average case which gives the powerful 2011 pin processors plenty room for cooling whilst letting you have several hard drives and, if needed, two graphic cards inside the system. The alternative case is an Antec quiet case which we use as standard in our Skylake systems. The Antec is smaller, but will run noisier than the Enthoo because it needs more fans to keep the processor cool.

Enthoo case
Drive Bays: 6 x 2.5" Internal, 1 x 3.5" External, 9 x 3.5" Internal. 4 x 5.25" External
Case dimensions :
235 mm wide
480 mm high
500 mm deep


Antec P100 The Antec P100 Case

This case is designed to run as quietly as possible, whilst having as many drive bays as you can for reasonable expansion.  The door can be opened and left completely flat against the side of the case if preferred and doing so does not increase the noise level too much.

The case includes 2 drive bays which face the outside world - so you can have two optical drives or one optical drive and a card reader, as well as 6 internal drive bays.  It has two USB 3 and 2 USB 2 sockets on the top of the machine as well as a headphone and microphone socket.  More USB sockets are available at the back of the machine and another USB3 socket will be available on the card reader which is normally mounted inside the case.  We use a USB3 card reader is all our system specifications, unless you have asked us to remove it for some reason.

Case dimensions:
Height: 484 mm
Width: 220 mm
Depth: 523 mm 

Please allow some extra space around the sides of the case to allow proper air flow.  Monitor cables and USB wires will require slightly more space at the back of the computer.  For example, the depth listed is the physical size of the case itself so there will be extra cables hanging out of the back that will need some room.  The case is a fairly normal size and actually slightly smaller than other quiet cases we have used.




The USB3 card reader includes compact flash, SD card, Micro SD cards, Memory Stick Pro and 1 USB3 connection. Being USB3, transfer of footage off cards is as fast as possible.



The back panel of the standard 2011 Pin motherboard with 4xUSB2, 6xUSB3 and a Gigabit network socket. The built-in sound card can output surround sound although it does not do so with Adobe Premiere Pro - only with DVD/Blu-ray player programs like Power DVD.  If you want Surround sound output from Premiere Pro you need to add an ASIO sound card. Some Blackmagic cards are supposed to be able to output surround sound through the HDMI socket but this does not work with many Surround sound amplifiers in our experience so we do not recommend relying on it.

(Please note that the configuration of motherboards changes rapidly and this picture may not exactly match a 2011 system if ordered. The general number of sockets will be the same.)

I want all my drives in caddies, is this possible?

Yes.  The current quiet cases only support 2 front facing drive bays, both of which will be used with the card reader and optical drive. If you want 4 or 5 drives in removable bays we can do this but would need a different case as well as the removable bays.  Please contact us to discuss your options.



The USB3 card reader includes compact flash, SD card, Micro SD cards, Memory Stick Pro and 1 USB3 connection. Being USB3, transfer of footage off cards is as fast as possible.



Choose from the various options below to customize your system. The price shown will update automatically as you do so.

If you have any questions or would like some advice on why you would choose one option over another please give us a ring or email and we will be happy to discuss options with you.

Delivery

A delivery charge will be added to the system price depending on the location to which the system is being delivered. The average cost for delivery in the UK is £40. If you would like to come to our premises in Brighton to pick up the system the delivery will be removed. We will also spend and hour or two with you helping to familiarize you with the system when you pick it up.

Payment

The webshop will only allow you to pay for the system by PAYPAL or credit/debit card. Payment for the full amount will be deducted from your account immediately. We normally take between 5 and 10 working days for build and testing. We will ring you before dispatch to advise the system is on the way.

If you would like to pay by a different method - BACS transfer for cheque, for example, you can choose this option when you place the order and we will then contact you to arrange payment separately.
