|I'm currently rendering out composites for a music video and it's crawling along. Vegas is taking 40+ minutes for a 8 minute 1080p video? That doesn't sound right. My CPU is a i5-3570K and the machine has 16GiB of RAM (5 in use right now). So I started looking at the CPU to see if it's running OK. First stop CPU-Z:|
2ghz? What? Where is my 3.8ghz the CPU is capable of? Hmpf. Well better check the temps then.
Oh... oh dear. Well... I er... guess I need to replace that stock cooler then huh. Off the shops, will update with results.
Edit: So I cleaned out the fan, it was clogged with dust. Reapplied thermal grease and reinstalled the heatsink/fan. I think it might've come loose and not have been making proper contact with the CPU?
In any case:
At least now I'm getting decent speed. The render time is down to 21 minutes or so. I wonder if I can overclock with a decent cooler?
