Video editing performance ?
I have a r9 270x and 8gb of ram and Amd Fx 6300

I use sony vegas to edit and for some reason I dont see it rendering as fast as I thought I would.
is there a way to utilize my gpu fully and cpu ?

FX-6300 is not exactly good CPU for video editing and you could use another 8 Gb of RAM for that. Graphics card doesnt matter that much.

video editing perfromance can also be dependant on hdd/ssd

if its not using 100% of your cpu, it could be a ram/hdd/mobo bottleneck

A stronger CPU would help out alot, along with more RAM.
But yes HDD/SSD performance plays a major role too, especially with videos of large file sizes.
It helps to defrag before and then after an large scale rendering/edit as well.

I notice alot of times uploaded videos having hard-coded skips in them, this can alot of times be the result of not defragging before/after the edits, and thus these skips end up in the final rendered video.

An FX-8350 and some 1866 RAM would help out quite a bit.

Movie Studio Platinum 12

if its a cheap board, it will also not let the cpu get to 100% load before vrms overheat and throttle it

Very true, especially when it comes down to using any FX-8 series CPU.

Please tell us the motherboard u are using. The model is printed in bold letters on the motherboard itself. Or install/run CPUZ or SPECCY and u can easily find the Motherboard/Mainboard info in there.

I would suggest getting FX-8350 with decent cooler then and raise your RAM to 16 Gb.

Gonna want a decent 990FX motherboard for FX-8 CPUs.

asus 990fx boards are good
make sure the video editing software will use 8 cores
and get 16g of ram for it

also a 2nd hdd/ssd will help alot too
reading from one drive and saving to another will speed things up alot
