The machine is just extraordinary and super-fast. It runs several virtual machines flawlessly at the same time from Linux to OS X; you name it! Whatever you throw at it, it will chew through it. The primary purpose of the build is just enthusiasm; building a powerful computer is just fun and rewarding. But when it comes to work, I utilize it for video and image editing( mostly Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas, and Photoshop), programming, and running multiple virtual servers, Linux Distros, OS X and different versions of Windows in VMware. Coupled with Windows 10 Pro, Samsung SSD, Surplus of RAM and overclocked to 4 GHz, this thing is blazing fast. All my Programs are loaded on one Samsung 500 GB SSD and all my virtual machines loaded on other Samsung 500 GB SSD. The performance gain in virtual machines due to being on an SSD is unbelievable.
