Thank you so much everyone for all your help

You don't need to go full custom water loop, I did it because I like both performance and super silence at same time, but overall I am not sure it's worth the price premium for most.
Buy Noctua UH-14S TR4, and in few months, when NH-D15 TR4 will come out for Threadripper platform, sell the U14 and replace it with the much stronger D15.


Hi, I have finally been able to debug the issue. The issue was caused by a windows 10 feature called control flow guard. You can read all about here. https://www.thewindowsclub.com/control-flow-guard-windows
After I turned this feature off in windows 10. The performance of corona+3dsmax all improved all together with no lag whatsoever.
If someone ever experience performance lag issue in future, I would recommend turning this feature off on windows 10. 

Yup, this has been issue since 3dsMax 2017+ for some reason. I never had it in 2016 which I use, and I have zero issue with the 2990WX performance and 3dsMax, Corona, or anything else.


Thank you so much for your tips they are indeed super useful!
I wouldn't mind spending a few more on the cooling system if it is worth, I just remember we had a leaking issue on my previous company which damage the mother board and a few more components, so I would rather go for air cooling if it can reduce the same amount of heat.

Thank you Juraj

Hi all,
I am about to buy in the next week my first computer. I have never build anyone before but I will ask for some help to some friends and IT team from my company.
Several colleagues told me to read Juraj Talcik threads to understand and have a better knowledge before buying anything.
I am a little concerned because many people posted they are problems with Max crashing several times after moving to AMD Threadripper, so I will like to know if you can give me some feedback of your experience with it. Is it just because people might not have configured their PC properly or you do have some issues having an AMD working with MAX.

I have seen the configuration you suggested in other thread:
 1.AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX 32-Core Socket TR4 3.0GHz Unlocked CPU Processor
 2.MSI MEG X399 Creation TR4 E-ATX Motherboard
 3.8 x Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (1x 16GB) DDR4 3000MHz
 4.EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC Black Edition GAMING, 11G-P4-6393-KR, 11GB GDDR5X, iCX Cooler & LED
 5.2xNoctua 120mm NF-A15 HS-PWM chromax.black.swap 1500RPM Fan
 6.Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB
 7.Seasonic SSR-750PD 750W PRIME 80+ Platinum Fully Modular Power Supply
 8.Fractal Design Define R6

I have see you recommended to buy as well:
EKWB loop, all parts.

What exactly I need from those and where to get them from?

The PC configuration would be around 8K approx.
Are they AMD Processors better for corona than Intel?
Is it easy to configure and set up the PC?

Thank you so much everyone for all your help

General CG discussion / Re: Project & Asset Manager
« on: 2018-01-09, 16:24:02 »
The free version is going to remain, but the Pro version (named Connecter for Teamwork) would be better to used between different users inside a studio and I believe it would be faster, hopefully

Hey guys, I know it is not a Corona related Question, but I'd like to know you opinion about 2 different software.
Have you used Connecter App (Design Connected) or Project Manager (KStudio).
In our Studio we have used Connecter for the last year, but now that they are launching a new Pro version, I'd like to know if anyone has tried both and can tell me the differences, pro & cons of each and you favourite.

Thank you,
Victor

Feature requests / Displacement Lister
« on: 2016-10-17, 13:18:20 »
Hi!!
Could anyone tell me if there is already or if someone can develop a Displacement Lister.
I think everyone would find it quite useful, Having a Lister as we do have with the lights or the Proxies. So if we are working in a scene with many displacements or if we have merged many assets which come with displacement, we could turn off just the ones we don't need for the shot or animation we are working on.

Thank you

Does this Script really works? It would be so useful but I cant install it and even when I created the "NikScripts" Folder and copied the file and change the name for "NS_CoronaProxyLister.ms" it still doesnt work. I'm using Max 2016 and Corona 1.5
