    Do a full reinstall next time. I wouldn't trust MS to stay reliable after a full chipset swap. Win 10 would probably suit you better for newer hardware too.

    Don't mean to be cruel but re install the O.S. with all applicable patches and ramp up system memory to maximum supported switching off swapfile and then on in separate test rounds. XMP may not work best with swapfile. However as is at least it won't fry! ya i know months after this vid so appologies! perhaps XMP on a small SSD twin RAID stripe with swapfile on that.

    I wonder if you would got better time if you would let the system run in Quad channel memory mode. I had some issues with Quad Channel memory and xmp on x99 5820k but giving the ram more voltage made the issue go away. While minus the 2 hours if fiddle with voltage to the ram phase control

    I'd much rather have a 6950x than a 9900k? Quad channel memory, 40 pcie lanes, and 25mb L3 cache vs. 16mb cache? The 6950x is the better option.

    Linus, you should consider using a Ryzen 3950x for this system, when they come out. 16 cores of glorious power.

    XMP is trash... manually tune your memory. You'll get way more speed out of the entire system.

    the I frames are the main frames. H264 and h265 can use only I frams, or I, P and B frames, that, true, make harder some editing, but not always if you know how not. the B an d P frames are the culprit. but you can use lossless intraframe only h254 or 265, or any fast lossless codec with good compression.
