Storm of the Century Description

Storm of the Century is a high-end Motion Graphics Workstation we built for Stormer Creative. Jesse came to us needing more performance in After Effects, and wanted to also use the system as a render node for jobs in Octane.

This system is designed for use in Adobe After Effects and Octane Render, and will deliver an extremely high single-core CPU performance, and provide a very high level of GPU rendering power.

This build is designed around a 6-core i7-8086K processor and twin GTX 1080Ti FTW3 11GB video cards.

Customer Review

“Chris is a very knowledgeable guy, he's the professional that hobbyist computer builders consult with, and who you want to go with for your custom build.

He recommended a build specific to my business' software and needs, and had it built for me in under a month. In my case I needed After Effects render speed, so we went with the fastest single-core CPU on the market.

Even though I'm a hobbyist computer builder myself, I really never would have thought to exchange core count for clock speed. Highly recommended!”
