AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I am building a new Rendering Machine to work with Autocad and NXT. 

Biggest question is OS. How does NXT work on windows 10 pro?? Do i stick with windows 7?

Here is the build so far: Any suggestions will be appreciated!

Case: Cougar MG100 minitower

Motherboard: ASRock Z170 Extreme4

CPU: Intel Core i5 7600 3.5GHz to 4.10GHz

RAM: 16GB DDR4

HD: MZ-75E1T0E Samsung EVO 850 1TB VNAND

Video: Radeon Pro WX5100, 8GB GDDR5, 4 Display Port out

DVD: ASUS 24X DVDR/RW

Windows: 7 PRO 64bit

Dump Radeon and get some serious video card like NVidia (GTX 1070 or 1080).

Did you examine the new AMD Ryzen CPUs? Look quite powerful.

Windows 10 pro is OK, not having any problems so far, with any software, even an older ones.

If you have software that you may or may not "own", 10 will not let it run.  if it cannot authenticate it, its dead. 

Still running 8.1 at home (and love it!)

What do you mean Kevin? 10 turned into software piracy police now? Didn't know that... :)

I had 10 installed for about 30 minutes before I noticed that a couple of my programs weren't loading. Then got a pop-up telling me why.  Reverted back to 8.1 and have been happy ever since.

Telling about not being compatible with the new OS or not being properly licensed? Between those two alternatives are abyssal difference I think. Never got this kind of message (about not being licensed OK) after the upgrade form WIN7 64bit to WIN10 64bit on any of my (3) computers. Should I start to feel lucky? ;)

All softwares work if installed on wins 8 and ungrade to 10. Like Kevin said, some will not install directly on Wins 10. Iobit start menu 8 is one and Corel X3 is another.

Kevin you probably mean the Windows 10 smartscreen function. I think it can be disabled anyway.

"Putting Area lights behind external windows help the overhall ambiance. Also rendering with no furniture first makes rendering go faster so when ok with the lighting then you can added the furnitures for the final rendering"

"You can experiment with this setting if you want- sometimes 99% works  fine and slightly improves performance.  Or you can leave it alone-- these heat shutdowns are not really very good for a computer."

"Abracadabra; adjusting 'Maximum Processor State' (in 'Processor Power Management') -so it does not exceed 95% of its capabilities seems to be doing the trick - as Roy pointed out. Thanks! Will try new thermal compound anyway -…"

"Doesn't that mean that turning your CPU 95% down it will run only at 5% of its full horsepower? Does it mean that the rendering will then run 20X longer than of full CPU throttle? Or did you mean to set the CPU usage to 95%? Are those 5% enough…"

"Turn CPU max down-- usually something like 95% will take care of it."
