As modded PC builds go, a dual-system with separate custom water cooling loops was never going to be easy. But today, we put the finishing touches on the AMD Behemoth system and finally get to see this beast in all its glory, and boy, doesn't it look great? Well, we think so anyway – all the hard work was worth it in the end!

Building two systems with individual custom cooling loops and 30, yes THIRTY(!), fans in one system was never going to be an easy task. However, we relish the challenge here at KitGuru and always see a project build through to the end. AMD Behemoth is possibly one of the most difficult builds we have done, with two very high spec systems, dual custom cooling loops, 30 Corsair LL120 fans and some of our own modifications and customisations to give it a unique appearance. It looks stunning now it is complete.
In part 4, which is the final video in the series, we put the finishing touches on the system. Two GPU water blocks are installed and the very daunting task of building both custom loops goes surprisingly smooth, with just a few minor adjustments to the plan needed. However, building both loops was very time consuming, almost two full working days were spent on the custom loops but we think it was worth all the hard work. Check out the images above to see if you agree.

As well as looking amazing, we want to make sure the system is running in tip-top condition and maintaining cool temperatures under load. Towards the end of the video, we test the cooling performance using stress tests to make sure the system will be running cool for the new owner, while also looking at how the AMD software can improve system performance via automatic overclocking and other cool new AMD features such as FidelityFX Super Resolution.
AMD’s latest Radeon Adrenalin Edition software offers a whole host of features for gamers, including recording and streaming that you to easily record gameplay and host yourself on your favourite streaming platform directly from the Radeon software interface. AMD Link means the fun doesn’t have to stop when you are away from your PC either, with capabilities to stream your games to other devices such as your phone, tablet, laptop or TV meaning that you can carry on gaming anywhere in the house or away from home.
Also built into the Radeon Adrenalin Edition software are automatic tuning and overclocking features that make extracting every ounce of performance from your GPU simple. A one-click automatic overclocking tool will boost GPU core frequency giving your more power to get the maximum enjoyment out of your favourite games. Combine auto overclocking with FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) and you should have a gaming system that is capable of running the big titles for years to come.
Don’t forget, one of you lucky folks will be able to win this system in our upcoming competition, make sure you keep an eye on the website and our Facebook page to be in with a chance of taking this system home. All the details will be revealed soon!
