Magix Vegas Broadwell-E system

The i7 2011 pin Enthusiast processor is available as either a 6 core. 8 core or 10core processor.   The term "2011" relates to the number of pins on the processor, not the year it was released.  The latest, updated "Broadwell-E" 2011 Pin processors, were released in August/September 2015.

This is a different type of processor to the "Skylake i7" processors.  We refer to these Enthusiast processors as 2011 Pin processors.  A 2011 pin processor is more powerful than the regular Skylake system and the motherboards can have more extra cards fitted internally.  This makes the system potentially more expandable if you want to add extra RAID and other cards in the future.

However, these processors do not have Intel's Quick Sync feature which is only found on the "standard" i7 Skylake processors.  This means the slightly cheaper Skylake processors can make H264 files a lot faster than the 2011 pin processors, if using Grass Valley EDIUS.  If you want the fastest system for encoding H264 then buy a standard Skylake processor. If you want a system which is faster for effects and encoding than a Skylake but does not cost too much more then buy the 2011 Pin system. If you want the fastest system you can get then you should buy a dual Xeon system.

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.

2011 Pin processor advantages

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

  • The processor is 6, 8 or even 10 core, compared to the quad core Skylake processor. You can even install a Xeon processor. More power is always useful, especially if using hard-to-use formats like 4K.
  • The motherboard can use more RAM so it is easy to install 64GB or even 128GB RAM, which the 64 bit Sony Vegas will use. 
  • The motherboard is more expandable in terms of the number of extra PCIe cards you can install.  In a standard Skylake system you could have a graphic card, Blackmagic 4K i/o card, and maybe one other card 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. 
  • More hard drive connections.  The 2011 pin boards have 10 SATA connections internally where as the Skylake only has 6.

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 standard Shinobi case used in our Skylake systems. The Shinobi is smaller, but will run noisier than the Enthoo because it needs more fans to keep the processor cool. With many of the large graphic cards you can use in the system you will find a couple of drive bays obscured in the Shinobi which is not a problem with the Enthoo case.

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

"Standard" case

Our standard system case, which is used on our Skylake systems, is the BitFenix Shinobi case. Users sometimes choose the Shinobi case for their 2011 pin system as it is smaller than the Enthoo case. However, this means there is slightly less room for the components which means the fans may need to work harder (and therefore more noisily). Adding a large graphic card, such as an nVidia 980, will obscure some of the hard drive bays as well. However, if space is a premium, choose the Standard case.

206 mm wide

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 4xUSB2, 4xUSB3 and a Gigabit network socket. The built-in sound card can output surround sound through programs like Power DVD. We have been able to use it to monitor surround sound through Vegas but have always felt that if you need Surround Sound with Vegas you should get a proper ASIO sound card.


(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.)

Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.1

This motherboard has a socket which works as a Thunderbolt 3 socket and a USB3.1 socket. This means you can connect Thunderbolt hard drives and video i/o devices. In most cases it is simpler to have an i/o device inside the computer, although the one exception is the Blackmagic UltraStudio 4K Extreme, as there is no PCIe equivalent of this device. The Blackmagic UltraStudio 4K Extreme is also available as the Avid Artist DNxIO. You would only buy the Avid version if using Media Composer, although it will work with Sony Vegas. Please note that currently you cannot out put 4K or UHD with ANY Blackmagic card and Vegas.

Choose from the various options below to customise 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.


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 tow with you helping to familiarise you with the system when you pick it up.

Please note that if you pay by credit/debit card or PayPAL the computer has to be delivered to the address on the card.


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 despatch to advise the system is on the way.

If you would like to pay by a different method - BACS transfer for cheque, for example, contact us to discuss your options.

Magix Vegas 2011 Pin Broadwell-E i7 system

Basic system

You can choose from one of two quiet cases. The major difference between the two the the physical size of the case. The larger case offers better cooling and more expansion options.
