Ok where to begin? So far it is running superb. Not hot. I am downloading my games from Steam and it is running just awesome. Can't wait to play some. Love having Chrome by the way as my browser, it just reloads everything from my other system.
There are some scratches on the laptop. Unfortunate but no deal breaker. I probably will add to them. The Behemoth is very sturdy and heavy but not as heavy as my old Alienware crap laptop. have no idea yet how to change colors on the keyboard but you KNOW I will figure that out.
Also doing my music from Amazon Music and these speakers sound real nice for laptop speakers. Ok the Onkyo speakers on THE LAPTOP sound awesome also. Whoops.
Can't get over how crisp and clean the screen is. Just WOW!
LOVE love all the USBs.

This is a goofy video I just put on YouTube. Ahem. Watch if you dare.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXxw5SIcGVo

SO MORE TO COME. Yes I'm crazy and having fun.

Digital Storm? Best damn computer builders and I wouldn't trust my money to anyone else. DS.............

Ok I figured out the LEDs on the keyboard. My husband came in to see if I was still up(its 0530 here). Saw the dancing lights and said.....I can't repeat it.

It was running a little slow so I threatened it with an upgrade. Perked right up.

Thanks BP! Guess I will be ready for Qatar.

Hi oldlady RPGer,

Nice review and I enjoyed your video. You are way ahead in the "Who's got the best stuff game".

I seem to remember that you spilled something on your Syndicate system not too long after you got it. Didn't you have to have a rebuild??

I have to know..... Does that warning sticker on the box say "Warning! You will be addicted to this computer" ?

Super review and the youtube video was great, also.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks everybody!!

Yes the iced tea syndrome(found out just how good my fans are). Destroyed my 590 video card. And sent my rig back and FedEx used it as a football. Thanks for reminding me.

Still downloading stuff for the Behemoth. So far so great.

I have put a question on the software thread if anybody can help me. Its about the Vanquish I got for my friend last year.

Thanks Roykirk!!! Aw you got a beast in the Krypton!!!

MichaelJ I looked at what you were doing and I downloaded and bought Futuremark. When I get a chance I'm going to see what the Behemoth can do. I don't understand some of the things on Futuremark but I will read up on it when I get a chance.

Can't wait to game on the Behemoth.

Finally off from work for a few days!! Loading games. And soon I will be playing one. Hmmmm. Thinking I will see how this does with "Middle-earth Shadow of Mordor". Yeah that's the ticket.


Let's see the Behemoth in Ultra settings perform.

Thanks everybody!!!!!

Ok so what does it mean to have the Behemoth go into a C:windows/system32/winsat.exe.? A media and DirectX assessment. It happens alot when i power on. Is that normal? is something wrong?



And on a happy note got rid of my Alienware M17. Gave a friend that mess. They were happy.

Is it scheduled as a task?

1. Run taskschd.msc
2. Navigate to "Task Scheduler Library->Microsoft->Windows->Maintenance"
3. Select the task named WinSAT
4. Right-click and disable it

To my knowledge there is no reason it should be actively running over and over, its just part of he experience index.

Alternatively, try a clean boot to see if something is triggering it.
