Video Toaster

Build Description

Moving from a maximalist Threadripper + dual GPU setup down to a tiny SFF box that has more power than the original system, the Video Toaster got its name from the original case that oddly resembled the toaster in my kitchen in size, color, shape, and of course heat output.

The name is also a throwback to a much loved Amiga accessory of old, and in true form I use the rig for some video editing work!

Favorite Feature

The fact I have the entire rig air cooled and temperatures are very reasonable even with PBO on and the full power limit of the GPU enabled. Much like classic Porsches, using air cooling over water cooling doesn't compromise performance.
