We've got a new king of the mountain. Going on the system specs alone, we obviously expected some serious brawn, but a couple of tweaks, such as the oc'd processor and RAID 0-configured primary SSD provided by Smooth Creations makes this a system any gaming enthusiast would enjoy using.
Of course, that performance comes at a price. At close to $7000, the Goliath goes for about twice as much as its main competitor, the Maingear F131, which it just edges out performance-wise. However, that price difference reflects the reality of the hardware market, where the cost curve for exotic, top-of-the-line components rises sharply at the high-end, and buyers pay a premium for that little extra boost in performance.
But this isn't just a system thrown together from the best components available. Smooth Creations builds a truly custom system with the Goliath-a carefully engineered and tested computer with an elaborate cooling solution and high-quality, custom paint.
Additionally, Smooth Creations' ability to reuse a customer's chassis when the next hardware cycle comes around means the chassis (and maybe even the cooling system) will last beyond the lifetime of the electronic components. The chassis is meant to last for years.
The Goliath's eye-catching looks, funky cooling, and top-tier performance earn it a TweakTown Editor's Choice.
