FAQ on DaVinci Resolve System requirements

  • How does liquid-cooling benefit my DaVinci Resolve workflow?

    Liquid cooling has many benefits, with little to no drawbacks. It is substantially more efficient compared to air, allowing the radiator cooling fans to spin at a lower RPM, producing less noise pollution in the work environment. It is particularly effective at removing heat from dense CPU and GPU arrays, allowing for lengthy video editing and rendering sessions without any risks of thermal throttling.

    For more information, follow the link to our blog “Why Liquid Cooling” where we explore the finer details.

  • Can I customize my DaVinci Resolve workstation?

    If you are not satisfied with our prepared selection of DaVinci Resolve computers, you can further adapt the systems to suit your particular workflow and requirements. They can be loaded up with very high-core count CPUs like the AMD Threadripper Pro 3975WX, 512GB of DDR4 RAM and up to four Nvidia RTX GPUs.

  • What are the upgrade paths?

    You don’t have to go for all the “bells and whistles’ right from the get-go. You can purchase a more basic configuration with just one liquid-cooled GPU and a more modest amount of RAM and upgrade at a later date. We provide pre-assembled and pre-filled GPUs that are plug and play thanks to our industrial-grade dripless QDC. That way you can easily increase the computational power of your EK Fluid Works workstations as your workload expands.

  • In the event of component failure, how would I service my workstation?

    In the unlikely event that one of the GPUs fails, it can be easily replaced with a pre-assembled and pre-filled GPU. You would simply disconnecting the dripless QDC, take out the faulty GPU, insert the replacement GPU, and reconnect the tubing. It is a straight-forward and hassle-free affair.

  • Is liquid cooling safe and reliable?

    All the components and materials used in the construction of our EK Fluid Works cooling systems are of the highest quality.

    All of the tubing is made out of automotive-grade EPDM that is resistant to considerably higher temperatures and degradation levels than it will ever experience in a desktop computer environment.

    Premium gaskets and high-purity aluminum are utilized in the manufacture of all the water blocks to ensure a long and leak-free service life.

    Industry-proven, redundant Xylem D5 pumps are entrusted with pumping the coolant to all of the vital components of the liquid cooling loop.
