This build is designed around an 8-core Ryzen 7 3700X processor and a GTX 1650 Super 4GB video card.
This was a rather different build for us. The client needed a low-power coding workstation that had lots of storage (caching web content offline), could withstand constant movement (would live in a yacht on the ocean), had WiFi, and could withstand prolonged periods of high temperature (South Pacific ocean).
This build influenced Hyperion One.
This order was managed by one of our former tech consultants, now memorialized in The Johnson Process. Builds managed by Chris include Hephaestus, The Beast, Jango, Nautilus, Data Dozer, Houdinier, The Bebop, Silver Surfer, El Rey Del Muerto, and The ArkenScripter.

“I found Top Flight Computers doing a specific search for custom computer builds while cruising. I have retired from the high tech industry, bought a yacht upon which I now live and cruise. I missed the more high powered systems and wanted something, in addition to my laptop, that would remain on the boat, act as a chart plotter, and allow me to automate custom tasks.
Top Flight Computers created their “Nautilus” build to meet my rather unique design requirements. I needed low power consumption, as few moving parts as possible, small footprint, ability to leave running 24/7 in situations and communications with the boat’s network and NMEA equipment.
After a few discussions back and forth, they delivered a powerful coding workstation, with plenty of storage, in a small package which I was able to hide behind a cabinet. It is silent. I have given it some airflow. It remains relatively cool after long periods of operation. It consumes between 90 to 110 watts during almost all of its operation.
Great company and team of people. I recommend them.”
