Description

The system was actually built about 3 years ago (hence the price that some are complaining about).

I use the system for Photo and Video editing, Motion Graphics as well as gaming. Because of this I wanted it to be dual-purpose and not a dedicated workstation (e.g. Xeon's and ECC memory etc.)

When I got them the 580's were good video cards while not being top of the line. They're definitely feeling their age, but nothing in this system has crapped out on me over the last 3 years, not even the HDD's.

The name "Behemoth" came more from its dominating size in my living room as opposed to any technological prowess. It's been a running joke for me over the years that any new build gets named as the Behemoth while the others are relegated to names/positions like "Old-Geezer" and "Has-been".

You need a description in this (describing the purpose of the build and the rationale behind the parts) or else you're going to become familiar with down votes.

What are you going to do with all those Hard Drives? O_o

I do video & photo editing as well as gaming. It's 12TB but Raid10 (so effectively only 6TB). Not surprisingly it's already almost full... guess it's time for an upgrade!

(The system was actually built 2 1/2 years ago fwiw)

It's a nice build, however the cable management could be better. Some zip ties or Velcro would help :)

I agree. I think my next build I will attempt a lot more customization to include wire sleeving (para-cord) and custom length cables as well as water cooled with rigid acrylic tubing. It was my first build after a long time away from PC building (over 15 years).

I'm assuming this older due to the part choices.

Yes, the build is a little over 3 years old.

Maybe adjust the prices

I could, but to what end? These prices were accurate for the time. =/ Additionally, some components are no longer sold except at places like eBay or other second-hand shops so I felt that "today's prices" wouldn't really be reflective of the investment in the system or today's value. (which, let's face it, computers don't hold value very well year after year).

BAD

  • Another cliché "Behemoth" name.
  • No description.
  • $4000? I didn't mind the parts until I saw how much you spent.
  • i7-2600K
  • 580

This was built in 2011 so I think he might not have info fresh in his mind as of right now.

  • Description now addresses the name choice
  • Has now been added
  • The build is 3 years old. Those were the prices at the time
  • Not really sure what the problem is there... see above bullet
  • ditto

  • I agree with the NH-D14. It was an excellent choice.

I Think the 580 was the best at the time.
