Mine is a:
HP 600 G2 desktop
12Gb DDR4 RAM
256Gb Samsung SSD
2 x 2Tb Western Dig hard drives
Dual NIC, well actually 4 but I only use 2
6 x 2Mp 5231-ze starlight cams
TrendNet 8+2 port POE managed switch
I run it completely headless, with the BIOS set to auto start on power failure and have virtualisation and WOL enabled as I run Docker for Windows and AITools. The WOL is so I can send it a packet to wake it up if the worst comes to the worst as the thing is in the loft.
Custom Built using mini-ATX setupBetween 20-27%, approx 3.2Gb
What about your system?
Hey @Arjun where'd you ever find a 500TB SSD, and better yet, how much was it? (typos not allowed)
System here to date -
Asus Rogue VII mobo (no onboard video)
i7 6700K Processor
32GB DDR RAM
500MB M2 boot drive
4TB WD Purple for video
Total of 12 cameras, 3 being 4MP and the other 9 2MP
CPU utilization varies from 12 to 30% depending on time of day
BI is using about 3.5GB of RAM
Network is a dedicated 1GB NIC for the cameras
Network runs a little over 12Mb/ps
No idea to be honest.I should also ask, how many kilowatt hours does your setup cost to operate on a monthly basis? In other words, how many watts does your system does your system use?
No idea to be honest.
How much does your system consume?
Your system specs you list in post #5 consume 120w? And its only consuming 25% of CPU resources?I don't know how reliable Kill-A-Watt meters are, but shows about 120 watts. I was exploring other options and oddly enough a new system may consume three times that amount depending on specs. I don't know why anyone would want to put a dedicated GPU in their system for BI. Probably best to let a BI system be a BI system only, right? I know a few folks that use it their BI systems as their everyday work-related computer. Wouldn't that bottleneck resources though even if you have 32GB+ of RAM?

Hmmm. Sounds high to me. Considering the TDP on that CPU is only 65w max if its running at 100%.
Impossible. You must be including the monitor and cameras or looking at volts instead of watts.Unfortunately, the motherboard manufacturer didn't adhere to Intel guidelines. I know that I should use thermal limits in the BIOS, but then that reduces the turbo boost frequency on the Core i5. When they advertise 65W TDP for the CPU, it only factors the CPU in mind and not the other components. However, I do agree that consuming double the CPU TDP is awfully high. Its been an issue since Day 1, but hasn't really resulted in any reliability problem. The motherboard is built for overclockers in mind; I would not recommend an enthusiast board for these purposes. I did some testing using Intel's XTU in the beginning and the CPU used to thermally throttle during stress tests; had to replace the cooler which did the trick. However, TDP is still high for the CPU particularly; exceeds 65W. Usually, there is a threshold. The best option is to go with an ASUS motherboard as they do tend to strictly adhere to Intel guidelines; at the same time offering consumers ability to tweak BIOS settings.
